Subject: March log file available on Darwin-L gopher
To: darwin-l@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu
Organization: University of NC at Greensboro

William Kimler made an important observation about the Darwin-L gopher
a couple days ago that I should have mentioned before.  The gopher runs
on my own machine, and can be located by typing GOPHER RJOHARA.UNCG.EDU
on most mainframes.  If that form of the address doesn't work it is also
possible to type GOPHER, which is the same thing but in a
computer-friendly numeric form.

Until recently the Darwin-L gopher was not linked to any other gopher sites,
but a connection has now been made between the UNCG main gopher and the
Darwin-L gopher, so those of you who like to browse for your gopher holes
geographically may follow the gopher hierarchy that is available at many
Internet sites thus: North America -> United States -> North Carolina ->
University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and look there in the directory
"UNCG_Favorite_Gopher_Holes".  I know there are some folks who still don't
have gopher access; if you can persuade your local computing center to
set up the proper software it will be worth the effort.  Gopher will make
available to you a wide variety of data archives around the world, all in
a very convenient and easy-to-use format.

I also take this opportunity to announce that the Darwin-L message log
for the month of March is now available on the Darwin-L gopher in the
directory Monthly Darwin-L Logs, along with all the other logs of our
past discussions.  If you have any trouble retrieving this file or any
other files from the Darwin-L gopher please let me know and I will see
what I can do to help.
