Last Letter from Gol.Com
I'm out of gol.com, my Japanese account. I closed it down a week early.
Although they have touted themselves as far ahead of panix in my corres-
pondence with them, they have repeatedly damaged their own shell accounts.
They switched machines without telling anyone at times - rendering void
email lists which rely on correct addressing. They got rid of emacs quite
a while ago, allow no traceroute, ping, netstat, or any sort of perl and
other programming - as far as I could tell, only simple shell programs
would run. They change things without advance notice - including time-
consuming machine repairs that they knew of in advance. I'd dial in and
find the account inaccessible. At one point, they removed Pine - I had to
switch to elm; they removed elm - I had to switch to mail. All this with-
out notice. Of course they removed /usr/games etc. Finally, they kept
reconfiguring Pine, the mailer - at this point, I couldn't even change my
name. They set more and more of the so-called user options. And again, all
of this without advance warning. [And Pine is now misconfigured, with an
error message concerning file permissions appearing every time someone
logs in.]

Additional resources on the Web page include submission guidelines, the

    We're sorry, but the requested page /home/mcbryan/WWWW.html can't be
    found on the Computer Science Department website. Perhaps there are
    spelling errors or typos in the address or the page has been removed
    or moved to a new location.

                          Internet Resources Meta-Index
    This document is intended to be a loosely categorized meta-index of
    the various resource directories and indices available on the
    Internet. Please send suggestions for new entries on this list (any
    index or directory of resources) to mosaic@ncsa.uiuc.edu.

                           Internet Resources Metamap

    This is an experimental graphical metamap of some Internet information
    resource indices and listings.

    To use this metamap properly, you need a World Wide Web browser with
    the following capabilities:

      * Inlined image display with image mapping support.
      * Full HTTP/1.0 response code handling (without this, jumping from
        the metamap to the remote resource will not be transparent --
        there will be an intermediate hyperlink).
    Mosaic for X 2.0 is known to work nicely. Mosaic for Mac 1.0 does not
    seem to work properly; version 1.01 should (but I haven't actually
    tested it yet).
    Simply click on the information resource you wish to see:
