Just a quick but important correction to Christoph Gartmann's posting:
Please do NOT use the address eros.embl-heidelberg.de; instead use the
address srs.embl-heidelberg.de. They are *not* the same, and using the
"generic" address allows us to put the SRS service on the most suitable
machine at any point in time (at present a DEC 7000-620 AXP).
Note that this is true for all EMBL services i.e. use the "generic"
address, like ftp, gopher, www, srs etc. etc.
