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 <gerben@cs.vu.nl>, and co-edited by Peter Naulls <pnaulls@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 <banksie@khantazi.wn.planet.gen.nz>, - comp.sys.acorn.networking Frequently Asked Questions (monthly) by Phil Blundell <Philip.Blundell@pobox.com> - Listing of Acorn-related Mailing-Lists (monthly) by Maurice Hendrix <devnull@worldaccess.nl>, and - Monthly comp.{binaries,sources}.acorn FAQ by Julian Wright <moderator@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 ( 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-server@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.

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-server@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-server@micros.hensa.ac.uk (pdarch@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.
