Subject: FTP Updates

Here are the latest updates for FTP downloading of Project Gutenberg
etexts and others. These updates will be posted on several listserv
locations once a month. We hope we have answered most questions, as
new files, new locations, and new users arrive each month. We can't
answer queries about nameservers or how your local system runs FTP.

These files are available in disk formats.

Please do not access the mrcnext machine from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Central Standard Time (Daylight in summer) as this is peak usage.

Current releases are Alice11.txt, Lglass10.txt and Snark10.txt.
Others texts are also available at the various sites.

If you are interested in getting the electronic books,
it's easy if you have access to FTP. Just type
ftp mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu (or any of the other systems listed below)
(Your system may require this in lower case or quotes around the name.)
(If your system's nameserver has trouble resolving the name, the
numeric address abouve will work until just after Christmas
when the number will be changing. The name will stay the same.)
anonymous (This is the login username caps not necessary)
(Any password works fine )
cd etext
ls (This will give you a directory listing, case sensitive)
get filename.filetype
(examples . . .
get alice11.txt
get lglass10.txt)


You may have to get local instructions for linking to FTP,
and/or setting memory for FTP. These files also available
via disk on request in several formats.


The current FTP sites are:

mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu or ( cd /etext
(Please do NOT use the mrcnext between 10AM and 6PM weekdays)

simtel20.army.mil or ( pd:<books>

The MSDOS portions of simtel are echoed on:

(Please report your efforts on wuarchive, we need a guru for it) (wuarchive
also echoed on mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu)

deneva.sdd.trw.com or ( cd pub/etext and cd
pub/etext/compressed for compresses versions.
