   My apologies for accidentally getting people's hopes up -- several
folks have asked about this...

   The OED online is licensed to the Virtual Library of Virginia (the
"VIVA Consortium") which consists of the publicly supported colleges
and universities in Virginia.  If you have an account with one of
these institutions (mine is at UVA), you can access it at:


but if you don't have such an account, you aren't permitted access...

   Again, I apologize for raising false hopes.  I bet I remember this 
embarrassment the _next_ time I get an urge to gloat!
