Lynx operates on the Freenet (victoria.tc.ca) under UNIX though I do have
a MS-DOS version as well as an update called Bobcat. The way it works here
is that users can log on via telnet or a regular modem/terminal program
and then go to personal files area, email, usenet, etc. To go anywhere on
the web, I simply hit "g" and type in the URL. It works equally well with
ftp, gopher, etc.

I was using a friend's IBM with Windoze 98 yesterday trying to find
information to fix his girlfriend's computer. After a few minutes of
putting up with all the advertising, scrolling banners, etc. and not being
able to find what I wanted, I telnetted to my account on Freenet and went
looking using Lynx--got all my info almost immediately.

No... but my wish has always been that Atari had released a machine with
Amy and the 7800's MARIA while maintaining compatibility. That would
have made the Tramiel era almost bearable.

        Yes, a data separator board was added to the later 810's.

I have just got hold of a Commdore 1084ST monitor, which has Lum & Chr
inputs on the back, but can only get the display in B&W. I think I have made
up the cable correctly, has anyone else used one of these Monitors with
success?

Thanks

See your mail box, they did get posted yesterday by myself but some servers
either don't carry that group (ISP request needed) or they restrict the
binary groups to a minimum.

I'm on the case...Thought I had it but will find it somehow :-)

Update:

I got my drive to resurrect from the dead today.  Put in a commercial copy of
SynFile+ and it worked.  Then I put in AtariWriter, and BOOM, worked as well.
Thanks everyone for your help.
