Hi Michał,

Thanks for the report - the links are indeed broken. However, I wonder
whether there's sense to provide these links at all, given that the
article was written in 2001. The code samples there don't work with
Python 3.x at all, AFAICS. Perhaps it will be best to remove these
links altogether?
