Announcements from echo
E-MAIL AND FAX provide us with almost instantaneous communication these days. We have been receiving many requests by these methods. However, always include your postal address on your fax or e-mail message. Recently we tried to reply to several requests electronically, but the messages were returned, leaving us no way to contact the individual. Also, ECHO cannot afford the high cost of responding by overseas fax.
Note our new e-mail number, ECHO@xc.org. (This is a "cross-connect" account with Missionary Aviation Fellowship. Its purpose is to provide a constant address from which e-mail is forwarded to whatever address you give. It could even follow you from country to country if you do a lot of travel. ECHO still uses the old Compuserve number, but we don't want to commit to it forever. ECHO@xc.org will always deliver to whatever internet access company we happen to be using. The cost is $40 per year. Contact them at email@example.com).
ECHO is placing all of our technical publications on the World Wide Web (http://www.xc.org/echo). Though not yet completed, our web site is active and already contains much material. Many of you cannot access the Web because it requires a direct connection to the internet. We just learned that there is a way to retrieve documents from the Web using regular e-mail.
If you already have some familiarity with the Web and would like to try it, you should get a file called "Doctor Bob's Guide to Offline Internet Access" which will give details. Retrieve this file by sending an e-mail to one of the addresses below:
In the Americas: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Europe and Asia: email@example.com
