this is good, not everyone has Netscape (yet)

If you want to do the work of a spanish mirror, that's fine by me(frankly I think 
everyone in the world should just learn english and be done with it)  ;)

as for space, most of a site's space is in the graphics.  I don't think a duplicate
html document or ten will be a problem (some of the TOC will have to change of course)
hmm. maybe the foreign language sites should be mirrors at some other place.

Depends on what you are talking about.  If you are talking about LIT getting it's own
domain name, then yes the InterNIC fee would be yearly.  If you are talking about the 
URLy-Bird.com name, then no, I would not ask LIT to pay my domain name fees.  Besides, 
I'll be paid up for two years anyway, so it's a moot point for now.
