For those interested, the landlord algorithm was published by Neal E. Young
at (a quick google search later):
http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~neal/publications

The algorithm paper itself is under On-line file caching (click on it to see
a brief description and to download/view the full pdf).
Some of his other papers are also of interest.
