Interesting. When I tried to follow this link (from London, UK) I
received a notice that due to EU GDPR law this page was not available
to any EU citizens.
What's the point of that? Don't they know how the Internet works?

A search immediately finds alternatives.

You could get clever by changing your IP address to a USA proxy, but
no need in this case.

Maybe it is just a CYA notice in case there are any EU GDPR problems.  :)
