Archive-name: acorn/archives
URL: http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~pnaulls/acorn-archives/
Posting-frequency: fortnightly
Last-modified: $Date: 1997/09/22 16:57:12 $

This is the regularly posted list of archive servers that contain files
related in any way to Acorn computers, i.e. the Atom, BBC, Electron,
Archimedes, R-series, PocketBook, Risc PC and maybe some even rarer types
of machines. Mainly it's about the Archimedes and Risc PC, though. Often,
the term "Archimedes" is used to mean all Acorn 32-bit machines, including
the Risc PC.

This list is maintained by Gerben Vos <ger...@cs.vu.nl>, and co-edited by
Peter Naulls <pna...@wave.co.nz>. Please mail any updates or remarks to
Gerben Vos. Thanks to all people who have sent helpful information; this list
wouldn't have been what it is without your help.

Other periodic informational postings in the Acorn newsgroups are:
- Comp.Sys.Acorn FAQ List Posting (twice a month)
by Philip Banks <ban...@khantazi.wn.planet.gen.nz>,
- comp.sys.acorn.networking Frequently Asked Questions (monthly)
by Phil Blundell <Philip....@pobox.com>
- Listing of Acorn-related Mailing-Lists (monthly)
by Maurice Hendrix <dev...@worldaccess.nl>, and
- Monthly comp.{binaries,sources}.acorn FAQ
by Julian Wright <mode...@bridge.wn.planet.gen.nz>.

Please use an up-to-date copy of this list! You can get one at the archive
site rtfm.mit.edu (18.181.0.24) as /pub/usenet/news.answers/acorn/archives .
Especially retrieve an up-to-date copy if you're reading this on CD-ROM or
another non-volatile medium.
There's also a mail server on that machine: if you send an email
message to mail-...@rtfm.mit.edu containing, without the quotes, the text
"send pub/usenet/news.answers/acorn/archives" in the message body, you'll
get the latest version mailed back to you.
This list is also available on the World Wide Web as a text file at
http://www.cs.vu.nl/%7Egerben/acorn/acorn-archives.txt , or as nicely
formatted HTML at http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~pnaulls/acorn-archives/ .

General information about FTP and ftpmail services can be found in
"Anonymous FTP: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) List" by Perry Rovers,
available in all FAQ archives as ftp-list/faq .

This article lists the name of every interesting archive we know of, as well
as the type of files it contains, its numeric address if applicable, and the
email address of the maintainer, if known. Below that follows a list of the
directories to look for with a short description of their contents.
Below the main list are two sections which list the Acorn WWW sites and tell
you how to use Internet ftp by e-mail (using the ftpmail service).

When requesting files from servers, always try to use a server that is as
near as possible to you. And keep in mind that the people running these things
are doing you a favour, so please don't abuse their services.

Changes since some arbitrary time in the past (most recent ones first):
- Added acorn-pd.wn.planet.gen.nz .
- Sounds Riscy moved.
- Demon's IP address has changed.
- FreeNet moved from the University of Southampton to Barnet College.
- Updated the location of the WWW version of this list.

Distribution via non-permanent electronic media, as well as any kind
of distribution for non-commercial purposes is unlimited and encouraged,
but you may only distribute the entire unedited article, including the
editorial text. Otherwise, contact the maintainer.

The maintainers and editors of this list reserve the right to be wrong,
incorrect, slow, out of date and generally how they please with this archive
list.


What this [ABT]? stuff means:
A=Archimedes/Risc PC, B=BBC/Electron/Master, T=Text documents.
Small letters mean: relevant to that machine, but doesn't run on it.

MAIL SERVERS:
=============
Format: [ABT]? email-address-of-server (email-address-of-maintainer)
For the meaning of [ABT]?, see above.
See also the section below on ftp-by-mail services.

[..T] ban...@khantazi.wn.planet.gen.nz (ban...@khantazi.wn.planet.gen.nz)
Section: FAQData The FAQ and Acorn machine list
Section: Public Arc documentation and informational files

Requests *must* have as subject "ServerMail" (case is important, omit the
quotes), and the body should be of the form:

Start:
[Help:]
Section: <section>
Send: <filename>
End:

Using "Section: index", you can retrieve a list of all files in all
sections. The command "Help:" will get you a help file.

This server contains FAQ-like data which isn't asked frequently enough to
post it regularly on the net. Note that this server is at the wrong end of
a 2400 baud dialup connection, so frivolous requests for large files will
not be appreciated.

[...] info-...@newcastle.ac.uk ()

The Newcastle Info Service has been closed down. This entry remains in
this list as a tribute to the first Acorn software archive on the net.

[AB.] archive...@micros.hensa.ac.uk (pda...@micros.hensa.ac.uk)
For directories, see under "ftp servers".

Requests are of the form:

send <filename>

You can obtain a help file using the command "help", and you can subscribe
to their newsletter about new software and updates with the command
"subscribe arch-riscos John Smith" (use your own name). Access only from
within the ac.uk domain.


INTERACTIVE ACCESS:
===================
Format: [ABT]? site-name (numeric-address) (email-address-of-maintainer)
For the meaning of [ABT]?, see above.

[A..] arcade.demon.co.uk (158.152.17.41) (da...@arcade.demon.co.uk)

The same as dialing in to Arcade BBS, during the weekend only.
Also WWW and FTP access. On weekdays, see http://www.arcade.demon.co.uk/ .

[AB.] micros.hensa.ac.uk (194.80.32.51, Janet 000010403000) (pda...@micros.hensa.ac.uk)
For directories, see under "ftp servers".

[???] Compuserve

There is a library containing Acorn files in the German PCPRO forum.
Use "GO PCPRO" to get there.


WORLD WIDE WEB:
===============
There are a lot of WWW servers with Acorn-related stuff. If you want to know
more about the World Wide Web, we refer you to "World Wide Web Frequently
Asked Questions (FAQ)", available in all FAQ archives as www/faq .
