Hi! You will be pleased to know that Saudi Arabia is finally on
the internet! We can ask those guys who maintain maps of internet
connectivity to color this region black :-)
On the not-so-positive side our link is slow and expensive - we
have a 9600 X.25 connection to Portal and at present are mainly using it
for email. It is great to be able to read my email from my
workstation, instead of using the IBM mainframe that is our BITNET
connection. We have also set up our own Gopher server.
I want to thank you for all your help - both in giving us the
execellent lectures in Riyadh (during the last Gulfnet meeting) and
allowing us to experiment with PPP to your machine.
Hope to keep in touch.
