Description

This article is from the Ballet and Modern Dance FAQ, by Tom Parsons twp@panix.com with numerous contributions by others.

1.5. How can I access this group?

Direct access to the group is available via news readers at most
sites.

If you are unable to access alt.arts.ballet, please make a request
(to your local net news administrator) to have this group picked up on your
local site, and/or contact Eliot (eliot@netcom.com) directly by e-mail for
assistance.

For a mailing-list subscription, e-mail to majordomo@world.std.com
from your account; make the body of the message
subscribe ballet-modern
If you ever want to terminate your subscription, e-mail to the same address
with the body
unsubscribe ballet-modern
After subscribing, you post messages by sending them to
ballet-modern@world.std.com.

Early postings to this group used to be archived in Dancers'
Archive (maintained by Eileen Bauer, ecb@world.std.com), but because of a
lack of disc space, nothing has been archived since February, 1997, and
the files, which run back to the inception of the group, are nearly all
compressed with the gnu zip data-compression utility. The compressed
files have an extension ".gz" in their names. To extract these, you must
download them and run the decompression program gunzip on them. To access
Dancers' Archive, do an anonymous FTP to ftp.std.com, use the gopher to
access Dancers' Archive, or, on the Web, use
ftp://ftp.std.com/nonprofits/dance
or use
http://www.dancers-archive.com/rec-arts-dance/topics

Two gopher routes to the Archive: (1) gopher gopher.std.com and
wander down the nonprofit menus until you get to Dancers' Archive. (2)
gopher gopher.panix.com, select New York Art Line, then Music, Performance
and Dance, and then the Archive. Some Web pages also include links to the
Archive.

Eileen now also offers a daily digest of alt.arts.ballet. To
subscribe to it, email dancers-archive@world.std.com with with either the
subject or the body containing the line:
subscribe ballet-modern-digest
You unsubscribe by sending the message,
unsubscribe ballet-modern-digest
Subscribers will receive one post per day, probably averaging ~50k. (The
digest is automatically purged of spams, by the way.) If you are already a
subscriber to the ballet-modern mailing list, this is a separate service
and you will NOT be automatically unsubscribed from the regular list.
