[Rollei] RUG faq.html update notice

Hi Ruggers,

The following WWW FAQ document:


has just been updated to reflect some additional material discussed on
the RUG or new Internet links found since the last FAQ release.

To get a copy of the very last version of the RUG 'text' or 'html' FAQ
by e-mail, between WWW releases on Ferdi Stutterheim's site, please
send me a blank e-mail message to <bigler   with either of the
following *subject* lines:
  send rug faq         (to get the pure ASCII text version)
  send mime faq.html   (to get the .html version as an attached file)

- --

The major change in this release is that I have (temporarily)
withdrawn the section dealing with keyword search since, to the best
of my knowledge, there is no RUG archive repository equipped with a
search engine that I have been able to use. I'll be happy to be wrong
on this issue.

- ---
This will be the last RUG faq.html release before Christmas. So, merry
Christmas to all.

- -Emmanuel <bigler

 3. Information available on the World Wide Web

    3.1 Archives of the Rollei Users group:

  http://digistar.net/rollei started on May, 1999
 and there is also a search engine as http://digistar.net/rollei/search.html 
 unfortunately this tool does not seem to work.

 ** for the moment, (end 2001) and hopefully temporarily, no
    searchable RUG archive seems to be available
