1. Humanist during the holidays.

Humanist will continue to be published during the forthcoming holidays
as time and events will permit. Mainframes, we hope, take no time off.
Editorial attention to Humanist is, however, unlikely from 24 to 30
December. I will be at the MLA conference in Washington, DC, from 27 to
29 December, most notably to give a paper about Humanist on the morning
of the 28th (session 100, as above), and would be very happy to see as
many of you there as are able to attend.

I wish all of you vigorous peace and joy!

2. New stuff on the file-server.

The following topical collections are now available:

HUMCOMP TOPIC-7 generally, on the application
to of computers to the
HUMCOMP TOPIC-8 humanities

to NeXT
NEXT TOPIC-3 computer

RIGHTS TOPIC-4 copyright
to issues and
RIGHTS TOPIC-5 plagarism

SUPPORT TOPIC-1 the recent conversations
to on the support of humanities computing
SUPPORT TOPIC-3 and the problems of those involved

Allow me to remind you that a copy of any of these may be obtained
by issuing the command -- GET filename filetype HUMANIST -- either
interactively or as a batch-job, addressed to ListServ@UToronto and
*not* to Humanist. Thus on a VM/CMS system, you say interactively:
TELL LISTSERV AT UTORONTO GET filename filetype HUMANIST; to submit
a batch-job, send mail to ListServ@UToronto with the GET command as
the first and only line. For more details see your "Guide to Humanist".
Problems should be reported to David Sitman, A79@TAUNIVM, after you
have consulted the Guide and tried all appropriate alternatives.

Yours, Willard McCarty
