3.2 Where are they? (FTP sites)


I can't say I've ever been lost, but I was bewildered
once for three days.

The largest place I know is at:

wilma.cs.brown.edu

If you want a wide array of stuff, that's the place. FTP over there,
login as ``anonymous'' and include your e-mail address as your
password. Go into the ``pub'' directory and thence to
``alt.quotations''. You will need to know how to decompress the files,
so I heartily recommend taking the time to read the on-line info
discussed in question 3.1. Another place is known warmly as the
``Yoyo''. The address is:

yoyo.cc.monash.edu.au

There you can find Tim MacKenzie's fortunes and other items. Go into
pub/quotes once there. See also 2.3 for the location of the movie
quotes list.
We know of no other FTP sites.
