Subject: wanted: Siberian students for e-mail

Wanted: e-mail pen pals in Siberia for elementary and high school students in
Northern Alaska!  If any Russian teachers in Siberia are interested in having
their students contact our students, please send me an e-mail note for further
information. Thank you.

Subject: WTD Invitation for travel to SPB/Moscow

I am having a difficult time finding how I can get an invitation to
Russia for travel to SPB and Moscow.  Since I will be staying with
friends in SPB and not staying in hotels and since I am not tourist nor
business person, but academic, I seem to have run into a wall of
difficulties.  I have been contacted by one group, but they want neary
$100 for visa (which shoots much of my money for the two-week stay).

Perhaps, there are people who have experience and can guide me through
this process.

If there is inexpensive housing in Moscow, such as at a university, that
information would be helpful.

I will be going to Russia (IF I can work all this out) about 1 November.
I will be in Sweden from 1 October until I leave for Russia.

Thanks
Dave Wells

Subject: WTD Translation program: Rus/Eng-Eng/Rus


Is there a computer program that will translate English to Russian and
Russian to English?  I have seen some programs for other languages, but
was wondering if something had been developed for Russian.

Thanks
Dave Wells

Sender:  dbarker@skipjack.bluecrab.org (Don Barker)
Subject: Looking for an E-friend in Russia

I'm looking for a "keypal" in Russia with whom I can exchange views on life
in the USA and Russia.

I have a degree in Russian language and literature and have worked 8+ years
as a professional translator of Russian.  I can correspond in Russian but
have little experience (yet) with Cyrillic fonts and keyboard conversion
software.  While I'm learning about Cyrillic fonts, I can transliterate some
decent Russian.

I have kids ages 8 to 16.  I enjoy gardening, playing soccer and baseball
with my kids, and kayaking.  Hoping to build a sailboat this winter with one
of my kids.

I'm hoping in particular to write in English to any parents living in Russia
with 2 or more kids who want to write back to me in Russian.  We could chat
about raising kids, eating and playing, school, life at home, and how our
lives at home are affected by the big events we hear about in the news media.

Esli vy khotite tak razgovarivat'sya, ochen' khochu poznakomit'sya s vami!
Napishite mne pryamo k adresy moemu:  dbarker@skipjack.bluecrab.org

Poka!

Subject: Looking for "Magdanoz" site

I heard from some associates in Bulgaria that there is a Bulgarian Site,
accessible through TELNET called MAGDANOZ, where one can chat live. As a
Bulgarian I would e very interested in locating it.

Since Russia is close to Bulgaria in mentality, people .... etc., that is why I
was hoping that you would be aware of such a site and could give me instructions
on how to get there. Thanking you in advance, I remain,

Sincerely Yours.

Subject: Infomeister Computing offerings -- Ukr/Macintosh Web Page &
         Mac Keyboard Module

Greetings.

Zenon Feszczak has contributed two new items to the OSC-CEE-Ukrainian
website.

First, to go along with his (and Jake Jacobson's) nifty font
conversion offering of this past May Zenon has started to design
keyboard modules to enable you to not only read but also
create/edit in Ukrainian.  In what appears to be a series of three,
this first offering is titled "Lviv".

"Lviv" is a module which consists of two transliterated keyboards
for KOI8 and Apple Standard Cyrillic codings.  This module allows
typing in Ukrainian from a standard English keyboard.  In this design,
all punctuation characters have been preserved.  One accesses the
additional Ukrainian characters via the Option key.

Second, for those who use Macintoshes and are in need of a central
reference in using Ukrainian on their machines Zenon has written a web
page called "Ukrainianization of Macintosh".  The page
provides a variety of information in a well-organized format complete
with step by step instructions.  There are instructions there for those
who simply would like to read Ukrainian at their Macintoshes all the way
to instructions and references to sources for those who would like
to install Apple's full Ukrainian system.

Zenon hopes that you find favor with "Lviv" and this new web page.

The general coordinates for this website/gopher-ftp server are:

Via a web browser:
http://www.osc.edu/ukraine.html

If your computer speaks Ukrainian (you have KOI8 Cyrillic fonts
installed) your URL is:
http://www.osc.edu/ukraina.html

For the gopherer and ftp'er there in your place of business or
household:
ftp or gopher to infomeister.osc.edu

Via ftp the topmost directory is:
/pub/central_eastern-europe/ukrainian

Via gopher find the 'ukrainian' directory/folder
under 'Other OSC Servers'.

As usual, (we'll test your memory here, so fill in the blanks)
thanks to J__ L_________ for maintaining and making available
the OSC-CEE server at the Ohio Supercomputer Center there in
bucolic Columbus Ohio.

Submissions, enhancements and corrections to the OSC-CEE-Ukrainian
server are greatly welcomed.  Any errors of commission or omission
are ultimately mine.

Stay tuned.
