University of North Dakota/Williston (Williston, ND, USA): Created: Sat Apr 25 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.und-w.nodak.edu/>. See North Dakota Network. University of North Florida (Jacksonville, FL, USA): Changed: Fri Apr 24 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.unf.edu/>. Alphabetical list of faculty at <URL:http://www.unf.edu/facstaff/directory/byname/>; home pages for some . at <URL:http://www.unf.edu/students/> CS undergrads, grads, faculty: flast@unf6.cis.unf.edu, where last may be limited to 6-8 characters. Information Science undergrads: unf1vm.cis.unf.edu. Unfortunately names are assigned randomly, so it's nearly impossible to guess unless you already have contact with someone. Others generally don't have accounts unless they ask for them. University of Northern British Columbia (Prince George, British Columbia, Canada): Created: Fri Dec 26 1997 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.unbc.ca/>. E-mail directory at <URL:http://quarles.unbc.edu/keen/srchmail.htm>. University of Northern Iowa (Cedar Falls, IA, USA): Changed: Fri Apr 24 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.uni.edu/>. Phone book at <URL:http://access.uni.edu/phone/phone.cgi?DB=csnet-ns>. University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, IN, USA): Changed: Fri Apr 24 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.nd.edu/>. You can search at <URL:http://www.nd.edu/NDHomePage/Search/> for personal web pages, or query the CSO phone/e-mail database at <URL:http://www.nd.edu/cgi-bin/phf>. The University of Notre Dame now supports full name human readable e-mail addresses, such as John.Q.Student.1@nd.edu. All members of the Notre Dame community have e-mail addresses on nd.edu; however, at this time (June, 1992) the vast majority of them are "uninitialized". This means the user has not specifically told the server how to deliver e-mail to this user, so e-mail to this user will fail. All members of the Notre Dame community also have userids in our AFS file space. Userids in this file space tend to be of the form flllllll or flllllln. Some users who use the AFS file system might not have initialized their entries on the nd.edu name server; conversely, many community members who can receive mail via nd.edu ignore their AFS userids. Notre Dame also has many other central and departmental computer systems which can send and receive e-mail. As more and more users initialize their nameserver accounts there will be less need to remember these specific local systems and userids. However, for the time being, they are often the best addresses for some members of the Notre Dame community. All students are given accounts on darwin.cc.nd.edu, but not all students use them. Usernames are of the form flllllll. In case of name conflicts, numbers are added to the end to disambiguate. Questions can be sent to info@nd.edu.

Finger available. University of Vermont (Burlington, VT, USA): Changed: Fri Apr 24 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.uvm.edu/>. Electronic phone book at <URL:http://cit.uvm.edu/cgi-bin/WebPh/WebPh?DB=ns>. There are two main computing organizations on campus: UCS (University Computing Services) and EMBA-CF (Division of Engineering, Mathematics, and Business Administration, Computer Facility). As a general rule, people with accounts at EMBA-CF do not bother to obtain accounts at UCS. UVM's domain name is `uvm.edu', and sub-domains are not generally used. Most of the UVM network has most TCP ports blocked off, but one machine, emily.uvm.edu, can serve as a gateway for, for example, the finger program, (i.e., finger someone@somehost@emily.uvm.edu.) UCS has three main machines: uvmvax.uvm.edu (UVMVAX.BITNET), uvmvm.uvm.edu (UVMVM.BITNET), and UVMADMIN.BITNET. Accounts on UVMVAX (a VMS system) are generally of the form Lastname_F; accounts on UVMVM and UVMADMIN don't seem to follow any particular scheme, but Lastname and LastnameF seem to be popular. Many UCS staff people use their initials. UVMVAX supports unspecified finger only; UVMVM doesn't support finger at all. EMBA-CF supports computing for the departments of Math/Stat, Business Administration, CS/EE, and Civil/Mechanical Engineering, as well as the administration of the College of Engineering and Mathematics; all students, faculty, and staff in the Division are entitled to an account, although many students do not bother to get a non-class account. Sometimes, other people may be given accounts on EMBA-CF machines. EMBA-CF has three separate mail-spool servers, and users are free to forward their mail to whichever one they happen to prefer; these machines are uvm- gen.uvm.edu, hal.uvm.edu, and trantor.uvm.edu. uvm-gen is also known as just plain UVM.EDU, and most faculty and staff with accounts at EMBA-CF have a alias of the form Firstname{.M}.Lastname installed at uvm-gen. All other users, except for class and staff accounts, are assigned by last name, with a numeric suffix in case of collision. Staff accounts for work-study employees are usually of the form operfml. Class accounts are of the form ddNNNfml, where dd is the department (cs,ce,me,ee,ma,st,ba, USA) and NNN is the class number; in case of collision, the class number or middle initial may be changed. There are two sub-domains: msg.uvm.edu belongs to Mach Systems Group, a group of graduate students involved porting operating systems (most notably, Mach 2.5 and 3.0) to local hardware; and med.uvm.edu belongs to the UVM School of Medicine, which is not very well networked as yet.

Most users have accounts on the Uniform Access Hosts, domain u.washington.edu; individual departments may have their own subdomains. CS students, grads, and faculty can generally be looked up by last name at cs.washington.edu; if not, try june.cs.washington.edu for grads and faculty, and wolf.cs.washington.edu for undergrads. University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada): Created: Prior to February 1993 Userids are of of the form <initials>+<surname> (e.g. mbmulroney, ghwbush), and may be any length (for most machines; some still restrict them to 8 characters.
