Online Resources

Class Web site:
We will use the class Web site for posting announcements, homework assignments, hints, solutions, etc. Please monitor it.
Class Newsgroup:
We will use the local USENET newsgroup umaine.cos480 on the NNTP server for electronic discussions. If you are unfamiliar with USENET, you may find the Web interface at useful as a quick way to get started. You may find further information on USENET at
Class mailing list:
Please make sure you are on the class mailing list. A sign-up sheet is circulated at the first class meeting. If you miss it, please contact me to get on the list. We will use this mailing list only for urgent messages because all other messages will go on the class newsgroup. I anticipate fewer than a dozen messages on this list over the semester.
