Hi Haymee and other colleagues.
I am afraid I can't help you directly with your funding problems, but i
would like to alert you to the existence of an educational BBS on FIDONET
here in the UK which was set up to encourage students and teachers to get to
grips with ecomms. Would welcome international traffic, penpals, etc.
The board is:
The Surrey TVEE BBS (TVEE= Technical and Vocational Education (initiative)
The name may change in the near future.
Our address on Fido is:
2:440/33 (8-N-1, all speeds 2400 upwards, ANSI-BBS)
The board is currently being re-located but should not be down for more than
My fidonet address is: [log in to unmask]
I promise to respond to anyone from Angola making contact. There is a
discussion area restricted for the use of students (from primary through to
18yrs - anyone older is deemed to be an adult - but there are plenty of
people on the board willing to make contact) in which they can can discuss
things of interest to each other without undue adult interference (we just
keep a check on language, etc..). I guess a lot of the students would love
to hear from your students. I will pass your address onto tour BBS and see
if we can get some traffic going.
Most of the schools in Surrey, England are now on the Internet via a Wbb
Server at the same location as the BBS. Webbb server is at:
(have had problems sorting out name server address, will let you have it
Hope this is of interest.
