There are at least 4 or 5 people on this mailinglist who have access to IEEE
that i know about. One can get access to IEEE (springer and others) by using
the library of a nearby technical university, or one that has a strong
engineering department.

Alternatively, one can always send a mail to the author. Most are quite
glad to hand out their papers.

Of course, asking is always a good idea, no matter whom ;-)

I must not become metastable. 
Metastability is the mind-killer.
Metastability is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my metastability. 
I will permit it to pass over me and through me. 
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. 
Where the metastability has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
