PT> From Tom Clancy's /Op-Centre III : Games of State/, Chapter 49.
>> For a biography of Deputy Foreign Minister Richard Hausen and any
>> information on his father, Smythe went on-line and executed FTPs to
>> acquire data from /ECRC Munich, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY,
>> DKFZ Heidelberg, Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung
>> mbH, Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum für Informationstechnik/, and */Comprehensive
>> TeX Archive Network Heidelberg/*.
Op-Centre III was published on June 1, 1996. CTAN was officially
announced at the EuroTeX conference in Aston, 1993. Provided that the
novel was written somewhere in 1994-1995, Clancy seems to be very
interested in current technical news.
