A list of programs by Timo Salmi All rights reserved
If you have an access to InterNet (or its subnets NorduNet or
FuNet), and have FTP (file transfer program) capability, you can get
these programs from garbo.uwasa.fi archives, University of Vaasa,
Finland, node number 184.108.40.206 by anonymous FTP. If you don't
have FTP, you can use Garbo's mail server. You can inquire for more
information by email from [email protected].
These programs are also included on Robert Bruce's extensive Garbo
CDROM (obtainable eg from Harri Valkama, WasaWare Oy, Palosaarentie
31, SF-65200 Vaasa, Finland). Furthermore, some of the programs have
appeared as UseNet Binary Postings in comp.binaries.ibm.pc. The
programs are also available from several bulletin boards. Some of
these programs also appear on the PC-SIG and other shareware
The most recent versions are, however, at the University of Vaasa.
This means that using anonymous FTP, or the mail server of
garbo.uwasa.fi, is by far the best choice, with the CDROM
alternative being the best of the alternatives. (North American
users might first want to try to get these programs from a site near
you [e.g. the Garbo mirror at wuarchive or SIMTEL20] in order not to
add to the load on the overseas link. Likewise the Australian users
might want to try the archie.au Garbo mirror, and the Asian users
the mirror at NCTUCCCA.edu.tw)
