  • CARL update

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    That dreadful mail loop seems to have stopped now. Please clean
    up your mailboxes, and try to forget it. Not a good way to start
    the new year. The network staff at University of Kentucky
    (UKY.EDU) will try to find out what happened. Until the problem
    is fixed, *everyone* at UKY.EDU will be disconnected from
    Biomch-L. Sorry. Initially, I thought I knew where the problem
    was, but when the loop continued I had to disconnect all four
    subscribers at UKY, just to be sure.

    Several subscribers have notified me that they cannot access the
    CARL system, mentioned in my previous posting. After asking for
    more information, I found out that CARL no longer is free (that
    was just to promote it initially). The cost is $5000/year for
    unlimited access from a certain University. Individual
    subscriptions (password protected) are $900/year.

    The people at CARL were so kind to give us (i.e. Biomch-L) a free
    subscription to UnCover from January 6 until January 31. The
    access for password subscribers is by telnet to .
    Our password is 'muybridg' (eight characters). Select item 2 in
    the first menu, and item 50 in the second menu to get UnCover.
    There is a limit of 10 simultaneous users with this password.

    Please try first if telnet to works. It is
    possible that your university has paid for the $5000
    subscription, and then you do not need a password (this is what
    the University of Calgary has done). Further information can be
    obtained by E-mail ( or by phone (303-758-3030).
    They are indeed very helpful.
