Speaking of books my ADSers, I haven't totally forgotten the idea that
we discussed last summer of having announcements/reviews/whatevers of
new books in the web pages. The problem is that this is a bad time to
start something new in our pages unless somebody is willing to take over
the pages while I'm in Japan for a year (starting next April). The
online costs I'm going to have there and the slow editing of web pages
in Mississippi via telnet from Tokyo will make it impossible for me to
keep the pages up to date. More on that later...
FWIW, I live here in Taipei, Taiwan, and just spent a month in California.
Via a $5 intro account (Netcom) I was able to work on all our html pages
remotely. Though slow, it was workable. I was using a 14.4K modem and
a notebook. Granted the cost of a net account in Japan may be higher
than the states, I believe you would only be paying for the time
connected to a local ISP.
In addition to html I was also maintaining our Unix and NT servers
via telnet. The way I did html was just download the html via
ftp, edit, ftp back.
