Subject: December PG Newsletter
 
**This is the Project Gutenberg Newsletter for December, 1993**
Our Goal, To Give Away One Trillion Etexts By December 31, 2001
 
*[10,000 titles to 100,000,000 people equals 1,000,000,000,000]
 
If each book goes to 100 million people by the end of 2001 then
we should be at about 10 billion with release of the following:
 
 
**Welcome To The World of Free Plain Vanilla Electronic Texts**
 
 
                 Fight Poverty of the Mind!
 
 
**Etexts Readable By Both Humans and By Computers, Since 1971**
 
*These Etexts Prepared By Hundreds of Volunteers and Donations*
 
Can anyone find us an Etext of the recent Adult Literacy Report?
 
Now available via Swedish MayDay BBS:  tel:  +46-13-174270
speeeds: v32bis, v42bis & HST 16k8 bps
 
Introduction:  The Project Gutenberg Newsletter reflects a long
history of 22 years, in which various pieces have been added or
deleted, cut and pasted, etc. to make an informative collection
of notes about Electronic Texts.  In that process it has become
somewhat archaic and will be undergoing modifications to become
more up to date in its "user interface" so that the "new" users
will be somewhat more comfortable with the format and the info.
 
However, because your local systems are still so different, our
instructions for using FTP, email and other programs must be as
elementary as possible.  You will still need to find your local
gurus to ask about the installation and detailed operation of a
set of programs running on your hardware.  However, we HAVE the
EMAIL101 book, Zen and the Art of the Internet, Surfing, and an
assortment of other Internet classics in our etext library once
you figure out how to get that far.
 
In an effort to make Project Gutenberg Etexts universal we have
ended each line with a "carriage return" AND a "line feed" so a
user on any computer can read them.  Macs require a cf, while a
UNIX machine requires an lf, while DOS machines require both.
 
Macs users CAN remove these characters [which Macs use for mark
at end of paragraph] with UUlite, while UNIX users can used the
flip or toix command.  [Mac users should be forewarned that the
remargination of Etexts can have some very odd results, back-up
your file before you try it.]  Mac users should also be careful
to TYPE their instructions using FTP emulator programs [Fetch].
 
If any of you would be willing to rewrite the newsletter so the
appearance will be better, it would certainly be appreciated.
 
 
Hot Items!
 
 
Project Gutenberg is now available at etext.archive.umich.edu,
along with a large selection of other etexts and also on:
 
NCTUCCCA.edu.tw [192.83.166.10, 140.111.1.10]
possibly the largest anonymous ftp archives in Asia.
cd /documents/electronic-texts/Gutenberg
 
About getting Project Gutenberg Etexts before the end of months:
the official release date of each of our books is the last day of
the month.  If you get any books before that date please check on
the first days of the next month to insure you have the permanent
copy rather than a preliminary copy.  Many errors are corrected a
few days before the official release date.
 
 
Project Gutenberg congratulates Internet Wiretap and the Oxford
Text Archives on increased creation and distribution of Etexts,
and would also like to congratulate the Online Book Initiative.
A special congratulations to our first corporate sponsor of the
copyrighted Complete Works of Shakespeare:  World Library.  You
can get over a thousand Etexts from the World Library on CDROM.

further information is included below.  We need your donations.
 
We now have a volunteer to mail disks!  See below.
 
Index to all etexts from 1/1/91 to 8/1/93 included below.  More
of our etexts are available around the networks than we keep on

Index
 
This is an index of the first 100 Project Gutenberg Etexts [gutindex.100]
It is no longer part of the Newsletters but will be independently sent.
The January, 1994 Newsletter will start again with the 1994 indices.
 
For now the 1994 Etexts are being stored in etext/etext93 so you can get
them more easily for Holiday Season gift giving.  In 1994 they will move
to etext/etext94.  For those who wish to volunteer early, we should like
to try to get the 200th Etext out by Thanksgiving, 1994, as we have seen
that a huge portion of you are rarely on the nets during the Holidays.
 
"If what you did yesterday still looks good to you
--then your goals for tomorrow are not big enough."
 
[Ling Fu Yu, ca 600 B.C.]
 
 
[A "C" following the number indicates a copyrighted Etext.  When we get
the permission to post a copyrighted Etext in our CDROMs, or on another
fee-based access medium, the "C" will be changed to a lower cased "c"].
 
You may note that by the standards by which we started Project Gutenberg
in 1971 that the following list contains closer to 300 Etext titles, for
we originally indexed each book of the Bible, and each Shakespeare play,
major poem, and the Sonnets, as a single file, most of which were larger
than our entire output for the 1970's.  By those standards the Bible and
Shakespeare alone represent nearly 150 titles [two Bible editions] and a
new Shakespeare is in the works.

Here are the latest updates for FTP downloading of Project Gutenberg
etexts and others.  These updates will be posted on several listserv
locations once a month.  We hope we have answered most questions, as
new files, new locations, and new users arrive each month.  We can't
answer queries about nameservers or how your local system runs FTP!!
 
Please try to help people get text files as we are not well prepared
to deal with sending items through the mail.
 
Brief instructions are followed by more detailed instructions.

Also a new Gutenberg ftp site located at:  nptn.org (192.55.234.52).
Do an anonymous ftp into nptn.org.  cd /pub/e.texts/gutenberg
Then cd etext91 or etext92 to get to the books listed above.
 
Freenet and NPTN (National Public Telecomputing Network) are not the
same organization, though Tom Grundner is involved with both.
****
Please do not access the mrcnext machine from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
 
Central Standard Time (Daylight in summer) as this is peak usage,
& mrcnext is always the first machine to get the newest editions.
 
Current releases are now listed in each newsletter.
Others texts are also available at the various sites.
 
For further information or to retrieve electronic books:
 
FTP directly to the Project Gutenberg archives:
 
ftp mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu
or
ftp 128.174.201.12
 
login:  anonymous
 
password:  name@login  [your email address]
 
cd etext/etext91 [for 1991 releases]

MORE DETAILS
ls -a or dir (This will give you a directory listing, case sensitive)
get filename.filetype
(examples . . . )

*****
 
You may have to get local instructions for linking to FTP,
and/or setting memory for FTP.  These files also available
via disk on request in several formats.  Some Bitnet sites
have FTP emulators, check with your local guru.
 
You might wish to try:
 
FTPMail service which allows FTP requesta via EMail.  The address is:
 
                [log in to unmask]
 
If you want to get a file in this way try sending your equivalent of the
following message to the above address. You don't need a subject. If you are
lucky you will receive your etext by email. I use Compuserve which has a 50K
maximum file size which is why I have to request my files broken
up into 50K chunks.
 
        connect 128.174.201.12  (this is the address of the ftp server)
        chdir etext/etext93    (this changes to the right directory)
        chunksize 50000       (this gives the maximum size file I can receive)
        get wman10.txt      (this is the file name and file type of the etext.
                             I don't know if you can get binary files
                             this way but it is worth a try)
        quit                (this is self-explanatory)
 
 
The current FTP sites are:
 
mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu or (128.174.201.12)  cd /etext (details above)
(Please do NOT use the mrcnext between 10AM and 6PM weekdays)
 
Name, the Almanac Information Server, located at the Extension Service
at Oregon State University, allows text retrieval both through ftp and
email.  To retrieve a file via ftp:
 
ftp oes.orst.edu           (128.193.124.2)
Log in as `anonymous' and your login name as a password.
cd /pub/almanac/etext
ls                         (to get a list of files)
bin                        (to switch to binary mode)
get filename               (where `filename' was one of the files listed)
bye                        (when done)
***
To retrieve a file via e-mail, first send the following line by
itself to [log in to unmask]
 
     send gutenberg catalog
 
This will instruct you how to send further requests, and will list
the available files.  For example, to retrieve _Alice's Adventures
in Wonderland_, send to [log in to unmask]
 
     send gutenberg alice
