Since there seem to be people out there who don't fully understand how list
servers work (and even I don't claim to be an expert), I wanted to post infor-
mation about a self-paced class I found on the Internet, on the Internet!
ROADMAP on LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU
The Roadmap workshop is back with a FOURTH session! Since the first
three Roadmap workshop sessions were so popular -- over 62,000 people
from 77 different countries participated -- I've decided to repeat
the workshop one more time for those of you who missed it last fall.
Roadmap is a FREE Internet training workshop open to anyone who
wishes to subscribe. The entire Roadmap workshop will take place
on the ROADMAP list (ROADMAP is a distribution list, not a discussion
The Roadmap workshop sessions will cover: E-mail; Listservs,
Majordomo, Listproc and other distribution systems; Usenet; FTP;
Archie; Gopher; Veronica; Address Searches; WWW; and many
other topics. As a number of ROADMAP subscribers only have e-mail
access, the Roadmap workshop will also teach how to access many
Internet tools (FTP, Archie, Gopher, etc.) using E-mail.
The fourth Roadmap for the Information Superhighway workshop will
begin on February 9, 1995 and will end on March 17, 1995 (St. Patrick's
Day) :) Workshop participants will be e-mailed one lesson each week-day
during this period.

The class has been going on for a number of weeks now, but it does cover
things like list servers and the WWW. It may be too late to subscribe, but
I do have the lessons saved, and it will probably be true that another class
will be held in the future.
Sorry about the non-quattro subject, but I thought that this might be useful.
