Sorry if this isn't exactly CP related - it seems relevant in view of the
confusion there seems to be over accessing the WWW site.

Aah, but we do have access to the WWW - yes, everyone on this
list! If you haven't got a browser of your own, there are telnet
WWW servers at :
and info.funet.fi

No telnet? OK, try the webmailer ( and if you haven't got Email,
how the hell are you reading this? :) Send a message to :


with no subject and HELP as the body for details.

This is more straightforward than the telnet servers ( well, I
prefer it. )
I still haven't figured out if the pix are in any way reachable,
but you can get the .html pages as ascii or even as source for
offline browsing with suitable software ( it preserves the links
to other pages too :)
