Internet class (Roadmap to the Internet)

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!


   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.

   To subscribe to Roadmap, please send an e-mail letter to


   which says

             SUBSCRIBE ROADMAP Yourfirstname Yourlastname

   in the body of your letter, replacing Yourfirstname and Yourlastname
   with your first and last names (*note: simply replying to this letter
   will *NOT* subscribe you to the ROADMAP list -- you must send a new
   letter to LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU to subscribe*)

   For example, if you were multi-billionare software magnate Bill Gates,
   you would put

             SUBSCRIBE ROADMAP Bill Gates

   in the body of your letter to LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU

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.
