More Paracompact Box Products

We show that if there is no family of cardinality less than c which dominates uoi, then the box product of countably many compact first-countable spaces is paracompact; hence the countable box product of compact metrizable spaces is paracompact if 2" = o>2. We also give classes of forcing extensions in which many box products are paracompact.
