**In memoriam:  Prof. H. H. Hart, died December 10th, 1989, Rest In Peace**
 
In honor of the 4th anniversary of the death of my father, Prof. H. H. Hart,
I would like to announce the initial posting of The Complete Shakespeare via
the great help of the World Library Inc's Library of the Future CDROMs along
with their Shakespeare CDROM.
 
We have been working on this for some time, and the legal paperword was just
finished today, as was another round of editing.
 
Also presented today is our first musical work, by Ludwig van Beethoven, one
of his favorite composers.
 
These are Etext #'s 100 and 99 in the list below.
 
Mon Year           Title/Author                            [filename.ext]  ##

The easiest way to get these files is to follow these instructions:
[exactly. . .Mac users, you will do better to TYPE these commands &
NOT to point and click. . .my experience is that these commands are
often CASE sensitive and that the Mac FTP emulators have windows to
enter your commands directly. . .if you have trouble with a point &
shoot operation, try entering the commands as written here]
 
ftp mrcnext.cso.uiuc.edu
login:  anonymous
password:  yourname@your.machine
cd etext
cd etext93
get filename  (be sure to set bin, if you get the .zip files)
get more files
quit
 
If you don't have ftp access you can get etexts via email:
To retrieve a file via e-mail, first send the following line by

Subject:        1994 Project Gutenberg Etexts
 
To make it as easy as possible for our readers to download the entire
collection of 100 Etexts [#102 is also there now] we have posted them
in the usual /etext/etext93 directory for the time being.
 
There IS a 1994 directory, but people are using mget to get all these
files at one time, and many of them are not yet aware of /etext94
 
Please be encouraged to take as many of these with you on the Holiday
Season and give them to as many people as you like.
 
P.S.  For those new to our services; my father, to whom the Etext 100
was dedicated, was a professor of Shakespeare and Milton which is why
our Etexts of those authors are often released on a December 10th and
dedicated to his memory.
 
Thanks,
 
Best Wishes For The Holiday Season!
 
Michael S. Hart
