Subject: addresses

Recently I've seen a number of questions about basics come over
the net. Good! It gives me the courage to ask something I've always
wanted to know: how are e-mail addresses structured? I mean:
what's the difference between @ and % and ! and . , which all seem
to be separators. And, if you don't know someone's address--or, in
my case, if you know the address that worked in the USA but not
what to add to make it work from Europe--what do you do? Are there
paths that knowledgeable people know to try, on the chance? Are
there directories? If some knowledgeable person would give me a
short primer, I'd be very grateful.

Two questions:

A few days (weeks) ago, someone posted a message describing some
bibliography software and offering an examination copy. If anyone has
the reply address of that message, I would appreciate hearing from them.

A friend has some information the original source of which was
a bulletin board on something called USENET. What is Usenet and how does
one access it?

Subject: Orillas Project

I have a fragment of message from Humanist (1/3/90) describing the
Orillas project, a multilingual educational project involving
cultural exchanges administered by Dennis Sayers at Brown
University. The Bitnet address provided ran something
but I have been unable to contact Mr. Sayers. Has anyone a
reliable Bitnet address for Dennis Sayers at Brown?
