    Electronic Antiquity, Vol. 1 Issue 4: September 1993: Peter Toohey and Ian Worthington
    ISSN 1320-3606

    Access is via gopher or ftp (instructions below). Volume 1 Issue 5 will be published in October. The editors welcome contributions.

    HOW TO ACCESS Access is via gopher or ftp. The journal file name of this issue is 1,4-September1993; Volume 1 Issues 1-3 may also be accessed in the same way.

    GOPHER: -- and through gopher: -- open top level document called Publications -- open Electronic Antiquity. -- open 1,4-September1993 -- open (01)contents first for list of contents, then other files as appropriate

    FTP: -- (or -- > departments -- > classics -- > antiquity. -- In Antiquity you will see the files as described above.

    Since a few people had problems accessing the journal via ftp, here are the stages in more detail: at your system prompt: FTP at the subsequent prompt: open at login prompt: anonymous at password: your username (which won't show) then: cd departments then: cd classics then: cd antiquity then: ls -l then: cd 1,4-September1993 then: ls -l You will now have a list of the various directories (the 'd' beginning each line 'drwx....' indicates you're dealing with a directory) then: cd (into wh ichever directory you want) then: ls -l If the first character in the line is not 'd', you've got a file. Use the 'get' command plus the file name to download. If you're still in a directory, use the 'ls-l' command to list its contents. Use 'get' to trans fer files.

    To move back up the directory tree: type: cdup then: ls -l And repeat the process.

    If still having trouble, try, once you have the directory list for the journal: Type (for example) cd (04)Articles Your response should be 'CWD command successful', but no list. Type ls-l Your response should be a list of fours articles in a form such as: -rw-rw-r -- 1 1689 77030 Sep 28 23:09 Becker-Plato etc for the rest Type get Becker-Plato and you should have a copy.

    A final alternative if a space is magically inserted in the parenthesis of the file number (e.g. of 'Articles' file) is to specify: CD ./(04)Articles

    Please also be very careful when ftping not to leave any spaces in file names or make typos.

    Do NOT use Telnet. The best way to access the journal (in terms of both ease and time) is by gopher, and we would urge you to do so. The structure of the journal is also more easily recognisable on gopher.

    Please try to access here in Tasmania (eastern Australian time) either during the night, very early morning or at weekends, since during the business day the lines are crammed. This means you'll need to check with (e.g.) the international operator fo r the right time difference, but at the moment (the following is not an exhaustive list) Britain is 9 hours behind eastern Australia; Europe, west to east, 8-6 hours; East Coast U.S.A. 14 hours; West Coast U.S.A. 17 hours; South America, coastal to easter n, 13-15 hours, South Africa 8 hours; Singapore 2 hours; and Japan 1 hour.
