Special Interest Mailing
This is a semi-regular announcement of special interest group
mailing lists for the VNese community.
Back when we had Vietnet, and now with SCV, there was always the
problem of there being too many messages and people feeling lost
or frustrated at not being able to discuss things they are
interested in. A number of special interest groups (SIGs) were
created to meet these needs. I will give a short description
of each lists and then the instruction on how to join it.
These mailing lists are based at Viet.Net, a machine in
Sunnyvale (near San Jose, California). Viet.Net is the first
and original archive site for Vietnet. It is also the first Vietnet BBS
in the world (started in 1984).
You can also dialin to Viet.Net directly by modem. The dialup
phone number is 408-XXX-XXXX (300 to 28800 baud, V32bis/V.Fast).
Login as bbs.
