Actually, the "Jargon File" is an ongoing text, not just something stored in a third party's large archive. Even more, it's gone through a full update recently.

Eric S. Raymond is one of its primary admins. To see a copy of the current Jargon File (otherwise known as "The Hackers Dictionary" whenever they put out a print copy), visit http://catb.org/jargon/

Current version is 4.4.2.
