C00002 00002 There are several online bulletin board files for the Ethernet computer
There are several online bulletin board files for the Ethernet computer
community at Stanford. These are the appropriate place for discussions of
various topics (except for system gripes, which should be reported with the
GRIPE command or directly to the system managers). The files holding the local
copies of these bulletin boards are on the directory [BB,DOC].
You can send a message to any of these bulletin boards by addressing it to a
Bulletin Board address shown below. Such messages must contain a subject field
for the benefit of readers on other systems who scan the subjects to decide
which messages to read; many computers will reject messages without a subject.
The bulletin board files can be read using the READ command (e.g., READ ETC),
but the best way to keep up with new messages is to use CKSUM (READ CKSUM for
details) for swapping to E with the list of pages that have been changed.
