Thanks to K.P.Hart for simplifying my inverse limit construction with a 1-point compactification (see 6 above).

If the "gif" picture of the proof does not load, you can download a jpeg at http://www.math.buffalo.edu/~sww/0papers/cantor-spaces.jpg

**12/19/99**: Thanks
to Murray Bell for mentioning Richard S. Pierce to me. I shoulda
looked at the **Handbook of Boolean Algebras** Elsevier Science
Pub. (1989). In his __Countable Boolean Algebras__ survey,
pages 775-857, Pierce proves on page 790 that there are c-many
countable Boolean Algebras.
