Subject:      Volume 2 of SHAKSPER Member Biographies
 
 
Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
 
(Incidentally, my apologies for the duplicated mailing yesterday; that
was the first time such an error has occurred on SHAKSPER, but it may
not be the last.  I won't bore you with the technical excuses...)
 
Today I have closed volume two of the SHAKSPER Member Biographies (named
SHAKS-00 BIOGRAFY, for reasons best explained by the programmer of the
retrieval software).  The file is now complete and available to
members on the SHAKSPER Fileserver.  Any subsequent biographies will be
added to volume three, SHAKS-01 BIOGRAFY.  (The first, incidentally,
was named simply SHAKSPER BIOGRAFY.)
 
Because incoming biographies have been appended to these files on a daily
basis, most of you did not receive a finalized version of the first volume,
and none of you have received the complete version of volume two.
Furthermore, because the New Member Package is already quite large, none
of you received the BIOGRAFY software automatically.
 
I suggest that interested members simply request BIOGRAFY PACKAGE SHAKSPER
from Listserv, which will include the following files:
 
  Member Biography File(s) and Retrieval Program:
  -------------------------------------------------------------------
  BIOGRAFY PACKAGE    Order this file to receive the package
  SHAKSPER BIOGRAFY   The first file of SHAKSPER member biographies
  SHAKS-00 BIOGRAFY   The second file of SHAKSPER member biographies
  SHAKS-01 BIOGRAFY   The third file (in progress)
  BIOGRAFY EXEC       A CMS retrieval program for the SHAKSPER
                        biography files, by Jim Coombs
  BIOGRAFY HELPCMS    A help file for the CMS biography program
 
 
I will not be sending this package to all members, as this would place
an unforgivable strain on the network, but you are welcome to request
it individually.

Fileserver Procedures (A Reminder):
 
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve files or logbooks from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".  If your network link does
not support the interactive "TELL" command, or if Listserv rejects
your request, then send a one-line mail message (without a subject
line) to LISTSERV@utoronto, reading "GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".
 
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index.  (Note that
the "INDEX SHAKSPER" and "GET FILELIST SHAKSPER" commands will
result in an *un*annotated list generated automatically by
Listserv.  These lists include size information, but are less
legible to human eyes.)
 
For further information, consult the appropriate section of your
SHAKSPER GUIDE, or contact the editor, <
