[Lastmod: 09.01.94 11:37:55]
The WWW Graphics Page is online at
but it is not actively maintained anymore !
[Even if you don't have a graphical front-end, you can still access
the information. Plain ASCII output (via the program LYNX) is
available for those users using dial-up accounts (e.g. Netcom, a2i,
Portal, CRL, and many more). You may already have lynx installed
online! Enter "lynx" at the shell prompt. If it doesn't exist,
just ftp the source and compile it yourself. See .signature at bottom of
message for details on obtaining the FAQ via ftp.best.com.]
If you're using a Unix dialup account and Microsoft Windows, now
you can experience the glory of the World Wide Web's great
interface without having to pay for a SLIP account or SLIP emulator!
