Index to Telecom Archives, 1-20-91

Post by TELECOM Moderat » Tue, 22 Jan 1991 12:20:00



I spent several hours over the weekend organizing and updating the
Telecom Archives. With the help of several readers, many missing
issues of the Digest from 1981 through 1988 were located and the
back issues file is now virtually intact once again.  Some of the
early volumes are still a little mixed up in the way the issues were
filed, but at least we now have them available. Generally speaking the
only troublesome area is volume 5. You'll need to search that one sort
of carefully to find specific issues.

Below is the main directory and the various sub-directories in the
Archives. These are printed here mainly as a convenience to readers
who lack ftp-capability at their site and need to use an archives
server. Internet readers can of course obtain these same directories
while on line.

To use the Telecom Archives:

      Internet:   ftp lcs.mit.edu  
                  login anonymous   password: yourname@yoursite
                  cd telecom-archives
                  then usual ftp commands

      UUCP / Fido / Bitnet / ATT-MCI Mail / others:

      (all except Bitnet)  Send letter to 'bit...@pucc.princeton.edu
      (Bitnet readers)     Send letter to 'bit...@pucc.bitnet'            

      The subject does not matter. In the text of the letter, put
      FTP commands one after another down the left margin, followed by
      the appropriate argument; i.e.

      FTP lcs.mit.edu
      USER anonymous
      PASS yourname@yoursite
      ASCII
      CD telecom-archives
      GET  (file names, using indexes below)
      GET  (more file names, etc)
      BYE

A help file is available giving detailed instructions for using the
archives mail server at Princeton. Instead of the above commands, send
a letter to the archives server address (bit...@pucc.princeton.edu)
and in the text of the letter, put the single word:

      HELP

on the first line at the left hand margin.  You will receive the
detailed help file back by return mail.

Warning to UUCP readers in particular: Some of the archives files are
*huge*, especially the back issues files. Before you have something
like this sent to you (they will come in several parts in the form of
'letters') be certain to talk to your sysadmin and get an okay since
these large files may cause your UUCP neighbor to get angry with you.

I've got a copy of the archives server help file, and will send it on
request if you have a problem obtaining it from the source.

Here is the updated directory as of Sunday night, 1-20-91:

Note:  The 'telecom-recent' file contains the most recent issues of
the Digest as they are delivered daily through the mail. If you have
missed a recent issue, you will find it here. This file is flushed
after every fifty issues with the contents renamed  "YEAR.volX.issXXX-YYY'.

The 51st, 101st, 151st, 201st, 251st, etc issues of each volume are
the starting point in 'telecom-recent'. For example, it was cut off
after the 50th issue of Volume 11 this weekend.

Please report errors in filing or file-naming which come to your
attention so they can be corrected.
