[Note from D. Kristofferson - There may have been a mail interuption
yesterday. I am reposting three messages from Mike Cherry. I'd like
to find out if anyone on the Arabidopsis mailing list received these
previously. We already know that the USENET distribution worked.
Thanks in advance.]
The public access account to the Arabidopsis Research Companion has
been improved so that you can now e-mail information you have found to
yourself or anyone else. The public access account is available by
using telnet to the hostname ochre.mgh.harvard.edu, the username is
GOPHER and the password is thaliana.
The software provides an option to mail a text file or an entry from
one of the many databases available via gopher/wais. First view the
file of interest or make a query to one of the databases and then view
the information. After viewing the file or database entry the
following prompt will be seen:
Press <RETURN> to continue, <m> to mail:
Simply press the "m" key then the return key and you will be asked for
an electronic mail address. Please type carefully. You should enter
your full and complete Internet electronic mailing address. Note: UK
users must reverse the hostname portion of their Janet address, eg.
Janet: user at uk.ac.cam.vax converted to the Internet format:
user at vax.cam.ac.uk
A Bitnet address can also be used eg. the bitnet address:
343476A at VM45XF would be entered as: 343476A at VM45XF.bitnet
This public access account is provided by the Department of Molecular
Biology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
