Hello Roslin,

This might help during an FTP session, but watch out for lower and capital
letters: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/developr/MSDN/NewUp/glossary.

BTW: This week tekom, our national society for technical communicators, had
its fall conference and I held Internet workshops there. It was next to
impossible to get any further than the directory listing. You find all
glossaries in my BBS at FIDO address 2:2490/1719 (phone +49-911-403905). You
can file-request them at up to 28.800 bps which means more that 3 kB/s. You
will get this speed if your modem and your phone link permit it.

The file date in the following list is European standard (dd.mm.yy) and
reflects the date of the newest file in the archive. This means that the file
date at the Microsoft server might be younger than mine for the same archive,
but FTP does not transfer this information.

Promise: I will update these files as soon as possible. This might be on
Christmas when everyone else does anything different from FTP.

If someone at Microsoft reads this:

Hi Richard,


I am just concerned that we will have different glossaries in different
servers all around the world and I will not be able to keep track of
what is where. It's OK for you to have the glossaries in your BBS but
please have a readme text together with the glossaries specifying that
they are "a copy of the original glossaries that can be found in the
MSDN Forum on CompuServe and at Microsoft ftp site
(ftp://ftp:ftp.microsoft.com/developr/msdn/newup/glossary) and that
they may not be the latest files available at those two locations".
You might have seen my new announcement today so you'll know there is a
new update up for downloading.
Please, feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions and
do not forget to include the text with the glossaries in your BBS.
