Forty is the old age of youth; fifty, the youth of old age. - Victor Hugo

A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday. - Jonathan Swift

Perhaps our biggest obstacle with this project is the fact that a portion of our potential audience does not have direct access to the international network and cannot access our WWW server material -- either directly (via a client 'browser' like Netscape) or indirectly (by telnetting to our computer and using our 'friends' account).

We have just recently completed implementation of an email gateway so that subscribers to the FRIENDS listserver can now obtain information from the WWW server by submitting email requests.

The directions for doing this are as follows:

  • Send a message to fp@solar.ncsa.uiuc.edu with the following format:
    send http://solar.ncsa.uiuc.edu/friends/home.html
  • In return, you will receive via email the requested document. The only portion of this command line that you will want to modify is the "http://solar.ncsa.uiuc.edu/friends/home.html" portion.

Please note that your file can contain any number of requests - one request per line.

Our thanks to John Gerber for making this nice facility possible.

Seven years of news. . . . .

 

 

Through an agreement with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Friends and Partners maintains a seven year archive, updated daily, of their popular daily news service concerning the NIS and countries of Central and Eastern Europe. You can browse the complete news summaries of each day for the last seven years and you can search the entire archive by key word. A wonderful reference tool!
