    bulletDECUS Library moving to the Internet.
    bulletThe DECUS (US) Web Server will soon become the new home of the DECUS Library. While several DECUS Library programs are currently available on the Web, the Chapter (US) is accelerating plans to transfer the majority of Library offerings onto the server. This will allow readers to pull down files for their own use, all for the cost of their Internet connection. In addition to electronic access, customers may continue to purchase both current and future CD ROM collections as they become available. Reproduction of Library offerings on other media will be discontinued as of Dec 31 (1995 ?).

    bulletHas removed all volume charges by announcing a flat fee of $40/mo ($20 for students) for AUSnet's home or personal users. According to AUSnet, the company is the only ISP in Australia offering a flat fee for Internet access and has been made possible as its dedicated US link comes out of its testing phase and into production. The company predicts that the removal of fees for downloading data bring an influx of new users to its client list.
    bulletHas become what is believed to be the first ISP in Australia to take a feed of the full set of 11,000 Usenet newsgroups from the Internet.

  8. buys Spry in huge Internet Merger.
    bulletSeattle - On hearing that CompuServe had acquired Spry for $US100 million this week, one industry watcher joked: "David Pool is the only man to make money on the Internet so far. Pool is president and founder of Spry, an Internet access software maker. The CompuServe acquisition - which cost roughly $US60 million in stock and almost $US40 million in cash - was easily the Internet industry's largest to date. More significant for users of the CompuServe Information Service will be how the Spry deal affects their ability to access the public Internet.
    bulletCurrently, CompuServe users can send Internet electronic mail, conduct outbound and inbound Telnet sessions, fetch file from the file transfer protocol (FTP) sites and access Usenet newsgroups. But they have not been able to cruise the World Wide Web, which the addition of Spry browser will enable them to do. Within a month, Pool said, CompuServe will begin offering a "one button" download feature from within WinCIM, the Windows client for the CompuServe network. Users will be able to download a Winsock TCP/IP stack and a version of Spry's Web browser. Service pricing for this Internet access will be announced at Internet World in California, mid-April.

    bulletA small ad for my home page on PEGASUS at the address listed below (see HYPERLINK above). I have found quite a few links to mainly local sites for most of the more common software. Also some links to other sites in the US which have lots of software. I have also set up a page listing Computer-related corporations on the WWW. I think there are over 100 links so far.
