Z-Spy is freeware so everybody who is interested can drop me a mail and get 
there own copy.

Alternatively you can add the server to the Z39.50 Target Directory 
(http://www.indexdata.dk/targettest/) and the Explain-- XML record will be 
ready for download next time the list is updated, by clicking the "i"-icon. 
The list is updated at random times every day.
