    Cariolis Group

    I recently bought the book, "Access 2000 Programming Blue Book" by Wayne Brooks and Lars Klander, published by The Cariolis Group of Scottsdale, AZ. I tried to contact one of the authors (Brooks) via the edress he gave in the book, and my message came back undeliverable. So I tried to find the publisher's web page, which the book lists as www.cariolis.com. I've tried several times over three days, but my browser tells me the page is not available at the moment. I also tried a Google search--again, no luck.

    Anybody out there know what's happened to this publisher? Is Cariolis yet another charred carcass left to rot on the dot-bomb landscape?

    According to Computer Books Online and Amazon, it is Coriolis, (not CAriolis).

    But I still can't reach their website . . .

    Wow...you're quite correct about the spelling. But yeah--still can't find their web page. Odd, ain't it?

    Thanks for the response!

    Looks like they shut down many moons ago, see this Usenet thread on Google Groups.

    Web sites all too often become unreachable due downtime, scheduled or not, or burps on the internet.

    Any luck finding the e-mail address the poster was looking for?

    Sometimes whilst using the Google search engine I noticed that it offers a link to the Google archives. I don't know much about this type of search, but it might be worth a go, you may be able to glean some information from the archived web site if such a thing exists!

    I have a book from Coriolos, but they say in the front that they created exam cram as an e learning site, and give the link Howard gave in the front of the book. The one I have is currently in bookstores, it's copyright is 2002--it's Windows XP Professional: MSCE and the address if this helps anyone is :

    The Coriolos Group, LLC
    14455 N. Hayden Road
    Suite 220
    Scottsdale, Arizona 85260
    (480) 483-0192 Phone
    (480) 483-0193 Fax

    Exam Cram/Informit must be a division or the web presence of Coriolos Group.

    I remember searching for this book and not finding any Coriolos web site per se--they all led to Exam Cram.
