MAP-EXTRA: *NEW* BACK LESSON ARCHIVE


NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS LETTER TO ANYONE ... THIS LETTER
ONLY APPLIES TO THE SECOND ROADMAP WORKSHOP (MAP2)!

In an attempt to make life a little easier for all of you --
all SIXTY-TWO THOUSAND of you -- I have set up a duplicate
file list for all of the Roadmap workshop lessons. You can
still use the MAP2 file list, but you will soon see that the
new file list is a heck of a lot easier to use :)

All of the Roadmap workshop lessons have been archived on a
computer at the University of Alabama, and these lessons can
be retrieved using a few, simple e-mail commands.

There are two ways that you can have the lessons sent to you:
in individual files, or in one-week blocks.

If you have a small e-mail box, or if you only want to retrieve a
particular Roadmap workshop lesson (say, for example, a lesson that
you accidentally threw away), you can send an e-mail letter to

               LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU

with the command

               GET FILENAME FILETYPE F=MAIL

in the body of your e-mail letter, replacing the words FILENAME
and FILETYPE with the filename and filetype for the particular
lesson that you want to retrieve.

What is a "filename" and "filetype?" Well, look at the following
chart:

          filename  filetype  description
          --------  --------  -----------
          MAP01     LESSON    WELCOME
          MAP02     LESSON    LISTSERV FILE SERVER COMMANDS

The filename appears in the first column, and the filetype appears
in the second column. So, the filename and filetype for the
"WELCOME" message would be MAP01 LESSON, and the filename and
filetype for the "LISTSERV FILE SERVER COMMANDS" lesson would
be MAP02 LESSON

That's pretty easy. If you want to retrieve the lesson on LISTSERV
file server commands, you would send an e-mail letter to

               LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU

with the command

               GET MAP02 LESSON F=MAIL

in the body of your e-mail letter. After you send your letter off,
a computer at the University of Alabama will process your letter
and will -- usually within 24 hours -- e-mail you the lesson(s)
that you request!

Here is the COMPLETE list of every Roadmap lesson that has been sent
to you so far:

and the following are the filenames and filetypes for the lessons that
you will receive from me later this week:


          filename  filetype  description
          --------  --------  -----------
          MAP24     LESSON     WWW (PART TWO)
          QUIZ2Q    LESSON     POP QUIZ

          QUIZ2A    LESSON     POP QUIZ ANSWERS
          MAP27     LESSON     THE FUTURE ...

EEEK! That's a *LOT* of files. What if I need a whole week's worth
of files? There HAS to be an easier way to get these files than bu
by sending a billion GET FILENAME FILETYPE F=MAIL commands!

There is! You can now get the lesson archives e-mailed to you in
one-week blocks, simply by sending an e-mail letter to

               LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU

with the command

               GET WEEK# PACKAGE F=MAIL

in the body of your e-mail letter, replacing the # with the week
number of the block that you want to retrieve.

For example, to get all of these "WEEK2" files e-mailed to you

          WEEK2
          filename  filetype  description
          --------  --------  -----------
          MAP03     LESSON    LEVELS OF INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
          MAP04     LESSON    E-MAIL
          MAP05     LESSON    LISTSERVS
          MAP06     LESSON    OTHER MAIL SERVERS
          MAP07     LESSON    NETIQUETTE

all you have to do is send an e-mail letter to

               LISTSERV@UA1VM.UA.EDU

with the command

               GET WEEK2 PACKAGE F=MAIL

in the body of your e-mail letter. After you send your letter off,
a computer at the University of Alabama will process your letter
and will -- usually within 24 hours -- e-mail you the particular
one-week block of lessons that you request.

I do need to ask you a favor, though. Please only retrieve the lessons
that you are missing. I know that there is a great temptation for you
to retrieve ALL of the workshop lessons, but that will place a great
deal of strain on the University of Alabama's system. The University
of Alabama has been kind enough to store these lessons so that
you can retrieve them -- we need to repay their kindness by
keeping the demand on their system to a minimum.

Thank you again for subscribing to the Roadmap workshop, and
I hope that you are enjoying the lessons!
