    This echomail conference is one of the oldest in FIdonet.
    IT is basically a "catch all" for topics not covered in other
    echomail conferences. since there are few echoes specifically
    for discussion of serial communications devices such as modems
    this is the appropriate place to discuss such topics.

    WHen an echomail conference is widely available (carried on
    various backbone systems) please post there for best response.
    OTherwise, feel free to post here.

    All posts in this echo must be germane to computer communications
    techniques. Discussion of hardware and software is permitted,
    although emphasis is on the hardware.
    All other topics should be taken elsewhere. When the topic drifts,
    take it to private mail, or an appropriate conference.

    Other than that, these are the only actual rules I expect to
    promulgate for this echomail conference.

    First and foremost, it is expected that all systems enabling posts
    in this echomail conference are properly configured to show the
    true Fidonet address of origination. If not, the moderator will
    ask that the problem be repaired before allowing posts from your
    system to the comm echo.
    Along with this, providing a gateway to/from this echomail
    conference from FIdonet to other networks is strictly prohibited.
    IF you wish to provide such a gateway ask permission in the
    echo. If permission is then granted after a poll of interested
    users is taken and the results of said poll in favor then
    the gateway must work in both directions, and the valid
    address of the gate provider shown.

    Multiple line signatures are strongly discouraged. Use of real
    names strongly encouraged. Keep it clean, keep it polite.

    All communication regarding moderation of this echomail conference
    will take place via Fidonet netmail. Not internet email, not smoke
    signals or telepathy. IF you post in this echo, or permit users of
    your system to do so then it is assumed that you have the
    capability to read and answer netmail. IT is unreasonable
    to expect moderators to have to hunt down an email address
    which may not be available, whereas your system's address
    should be displayed on posts originating from your system.
    The only moderation issues which will be handled in the open
    echo are those in which the moderator seeks guidance and input
    from its users.

    IF you're new to the world of serial communications and the
    terminology used to discuss it you might wish to avail yourself
    of the Comm echo primer written by Gord Hannah, the previous
    moderator. IT can be acquired from any FIdonet system carrying
    the ep-fdn ep-ascii file echo, or from the headquarters of
    the International Filegate project. TO acquire it point
    your web browser to

    http://www.filegate.net/epub/ep-ascii/comprimr.zip


    This information will be posted in the echo every 90 days.
    Questions, comments and suggestions should be sent by netmail to
    this address.
