[Rollei] RUG faq.html document, update notice

Hi Ruggers,

The following WWW FAQ document:


  has just been updated on Ferdi's web site to reflect some additional
material discussed on the RUG or new Internet links found since the
last FAQ release... well the last release was 6 months ago, I still
have a huge 2002 backlog of interesting stuff to sort.

In order to get a copy of the very last version of the RUG 'text' or
'html' FAQ by e-mail, between WWW releases on Ferdi Stutterheim's
site, please send me a blank e-mail message to bigler, at ens2m.fr,
with either of the following *subject* lines:
  send rug faq         (to get the pure ASCII text version)
  send mime faq.html   (to get the .html version as an attached file)

In addition to WWW-pointers to Rollei-related stuff, I do welcome all
"permanent" (i.e. something that can still be useful in a few years,
WWW-links being somewhat transient and fragile) bibliographical
references to recent or old, books or magazines, showing Rollei
equipment or Rollei pictures. I have added a new section entilted:

" 5. Miscellaneous references about Rollei and Rollei images : museum
    collections, movies, songs, etc..."

and the first entry here, thanks to Sanders McNew, is an unexpected
song by Serge Gainsbourg, written in the 1960's, with an explicit
reference to the Rolleiflex (TLR?) camera!!!

All the best,

 Info by Emmanuel Bigler: "Two books illustrated by the French
 photographer Henri Gaud. Most pictures (architecture) have been taken
 with a view camera, however for certain pictures like aerial views
 with long focal lenghts, medium format rules, hence the use of a
 Rollei 6008 as a companion of the large format camera."
