Class Web site:
We will use the class Web site for posting assignments, readings, notes, and other material. Please
- We will use the local USENET newsgroup umaine.cos451 on the NNTP
(net news) server creak.um.umaine.edu for electronic discussions. The Web interface at
http://chaw.eip10.org/news/ provides convenient access. Some further, more general, information
on USENET appears at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet. The newsgroup is the primary
forum for electronic announcements and discussions, so please monitor it regularly, and post messages
there as well. Unless there is a reason for not sharing a question or comment, please use the newsgroup,
not email, for questions and comments related to this course.
Class mailing list:
- Please make sure you are on the class mailing list. The mailing list will use the email
address for each student as recorded in the oﬃcial university records (MaineStreet system). 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.
