From: auofaq@locutus.ofB.ORG (Alt.Usenet.Offline-reader FAQ) 100 Where can I get the software? There are two pieces of software that you will need for any offline reading activities. A "generating program" (also known as a "packet generator" or "door") to build the packets on the BBS or login account, and a "reading program" (also known as a "packet reader") to read the packets on your home machine. This section lists software that can be used for each of these activities, together with the authors, FTP sites, and packet formats supported. In the case of interactive dial-in users, you may find that a suitable generating program may already exist on the system you call: ask the system administrator if you are unsure. For Waffle systems, you will need to ask the system administrator to install the generating software. For Unix, anyone who has access to a C compiler can compile and install the currently available software, so no intervention from the system administrator is required. 101 Where are the reviews? not here. if you are looking for reviews, post your requirements and see who else knows what you need. please do not be vague -- no one can help you when you just say you're looking to evaluate some `offline software for your computer'. what kind of computer is it you're using? what is the computer it's connecting to? what do you want to do -- mail, news, both, more? how much are you willing to pay? what sort of interface do you need? how sophisticated are you? etc. I will not be putting any reviews in here, partly because they would be difficult to maintain, and partly because I want to avoid any flak from a negative review which I did not write. if you want to periodically post a collection of reviews, go ahead. you don't need my approval. ------------------------------ Subject: a.u.o software: 200 Where are the QWK readers? From: auofaq@locutus.ofB.ORG (Alt.Usenet.Offline-reader FAQ) 200 Where are the QWK readers? not here. I don't plan on listing any software that mangles headers as much as QWK does. some QWK software also can also be instructed to ignore the QWK headers and use correct headers in the bodies of messages, and product fully compliant messages. obviously, this has nothing to do with the QWK format anymore (since all the QWK information is ignored), and requires support from the unpacker to also use these body `headers' and ignore the (useless) QWK headers. the SlipStream Jet packer tries to compensate for QWK limitations, but often fails unless you have a very long expiry time and/or you frequently upload your replies, because it needs the original, unmangled articles to rebuild the missing headers. so, look elsewhere for QWK readers. if you must. ------------------------------ Subject: a.u.o software: 300 common sites, template From: auofaq@locutus.ofB.ORG (Alt.Usenet.Offline-reader FAQ) 300 Common sites, template If you know of any other products that support offline activities for RFC-compliant mail and news, please send the following information in mail to auofaq@locutus.ofB.ORG . Also, be sure to post your announcement, to make sure everyone knows about it. Name: [Product name] Author: [email address] Location: [ftp site] [filename] * Type: Packet Generator/Packet Reader/Both Environment: [msdos][mac][ms-windows][os2][atari-st][unix][etc.] Formats: [soup][zipnews] Description/Comments: * the Coast to Coast Software Repository seems to have disappeared in mid-1998. for the Coast to Coast Software Repository collection, just use `coast' for the ftp site, and give the first two directories (e.g., `msdos/offline') plus filename. the main mirror is ftp.coast.net:/Coast -- if you connect to <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/> you'll get a list of mirrors. most files can be found at <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/>, and in particular <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/offline.html>. Coast to Coast seems to be in the process of discontinuing their Software Repository. Coast/SimTel had decided to stop allowing files which do not include the address and phone number of the author, which annoys me to no end. there are rumors that this policy has been dropped; if not, consider alternate sites. the special entry ``simtelnet:'' indicates the SimTel.net collection, available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its main ftp mirror, ftp.simtel.net:/pub/simtelnet/ -- if you connect to <http://www.simtel.net/simtel.net/> you'll get a list of mirrors [?]. SimTel.net, which is clearly not a network provider, and is thus badly misnamed, is a new Walnut Creek site. for the Cica ms-windows collection, just use `cica' for the ftp site, and give the first directory (e.g., `util') plus filename. on cica itself, the ms-windows files are in ftp.cica.indiana.edu:/pub/pc/win3/ see also ftp.winsite.com , cica's new home. for the sumex-aim info-mac collection, just use `info-mac' for the ftp site. one of the main info-mac sites is sumex-aim.stanford.edu . ------------------------------ Subject: a.u.o software: 400 author contacts From:
