Subject: history of networks



i am looking for online documents conerning the history of the following
networks. anything from general chapters (which describe their development
to the john q public) to actual technical specifications and documentation.

MILNET
ARPANET
INTERNET
NSFNET
NREN

are there others that should be considered in a general history of
networking? i do not intend to be americentric in this, nor to ignore the
development of commercial nets like compuserve or bix. if you know of
good text i can download concerning these, i will go get them if i can.

i am familiar with the RFC docs online at nis.nsf.net and elsewhere.
i would appreciate pointers to especially cogent text summarizing how
these networks grew and developed over time. personal anecdotes from
these times are also appreciated, like back when arpanet was called
worldnet or the attack of the internet worm.

Subject: English/French Grammar Checker

I recently heard someone talking about an English Grammar Checker for the
Mac. Apparently it will tell you about your split infinitive in line 5 or
your dangling participle in line 12 etc. Can someone provide me with
information about this? What is it, and where is it available? And just on
the off-chance, does the same thing exist in a French version? Any help
gratefully received. Tim Unwin.

Subject: Fonts

I am looking for a public domain or shareware solution of a problem with
polish fonts. There are several characters which need an hajek and are
not included in ascii or ansi fonts. Does anyone know of solutions for
postcript or true type fonts.

Thanks in advance

Subject: French E-texts

Does anyone know of electronic collections of French magazines and journals
(preferably pre-war)? I have a student in who is wishing to explore
"surrealism" etc. in the magazines of 1920 to 1939. I do have access to
FRANTEXT but I was wondering if there were any other collections.

Thanks in advance,
