In a previous article, bsh at MED.PITT.EDU (Basavareju Shankarappa) says:

You can also telnet to or maintained by 
Intelligenetics.  They'll give you 10 or 15 minutes on-line.   
 login: genbank, password:4nigms	
You'll be connected to an IRX interface that will search a number of
sequence databases as well as the new data.

Does anyone know what's going to happen to this service when Genbank moves?
