In reply to Karen (@netcom.com, no last name, so I use the InternNet default
value), some of the people using and interacting with the Net only have the
most peripheral access to it. For instance, I get this entirely by e-mail, and
I don't have the capability to do FTP or telnet, or anything of that variety.
Yes, it is much more polite to simply help yourself, rather than bother some-
one else for it, but if you don't have a choice...?
Sorry, I guess that might have been a flame...
In any event, similar information on where to mail away for information,
particularly on such topics as using the InterNet, are also of great interest
to me, for simple curiosity reasons.
