Last Letter from Gol.Com
I'm out of, 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.]

                          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

                           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:
