This version is a formatted file than can be read by Adobe Acrobat Reader, (downloadable for free from by click on the icon at the beginning of this paragraph.). Such files are best printed out by using the Adobe's "print as images" option.

If you are not able to print out the entire essay at once, try printing out the article a few pages at a time. After invoking the "FILE/ PRINT" command or clicking on the "PRINT" button, use the printer dialog box to specify the number of pages to print. This will reduce the number of pages sent to the "printer spool" at one time.

"Transfer interrupted" produces a faulty version of the website on your computer. This is caused by an interruption of the flow of information "packets" in transit to your computer. The website itself remains intact and is not the source of the problem. If your reload button does not fix the problem, clear your disk cache and initiate a new entry to the website by typing in the URL again. When you reach the website, re-install your bookmark.
