Tadhg (and others listening in around the table):
Galmr is correct. If your home service allows for SLIP protocol
(I'm not the one to ask for a definition of that beast) then Mosiac and
Netscape are open to your use.
There seems to be some confusion on the Mosiac issue. There are two
versions. One runs in a standard windows mode, and the newer one (ver 2.0
alpha 6 I think) which can take advantage of 32 bit paths found in
WindowsNT. There is a patch to allow anyone with windows 3.11 to utilize
the 32 bit stuff and that is contained in the Mosiac how-to files.
It has been my experience that while I like the bookmarking (note on
where in the Web you are for future use) system of the Mosiac line, the
Netscape program 1) is faster by a long shot 2) has a niftier way of
bringing up gif files while on-line (it allows you to scan the text and read
the stuff while still d/l'ing the gif's. Time saver!)
and 3) It doesn't crash my system but 1/10 as often. Now I only go
down while running it once every 3 weeks or so.
An interesting item on the Netscape program... Mosiac communications
company changer their name to Netscape and wrote the thing. Even they think
Netscape is available through ftp site of :
guestname : your e-mail address
password : anonymous
initial directory: /netscape
I recommend it!!
