Universal Resource Locators

By Scott T Boyd and John Kawakami

If there’s something you’d like to see here, please drop us a note at editorial@xplain.com.

In case you’re not familiar with Universal Resource Locator (URL) format, it’s essentially

<servicekind>://<servername>/<pathname>.

Get yourself a good ftp client (we recommend Anarchie, available at all of your favorite info-mac archives), and a reasonably-priced web browser (we recommend Netscape) and start rummaging around the net. We like to think of it as Mother Nature’s hard drive.

Interesting Developer Places

Getting a nicer Internet interface

The Internet Adapter turns a simple unix shell account into a SLIP connection. Telnet to tia.marketplace.com, or point your www browser to marketplace.com for info. [I’ve been using it for a month and have had no problems. Consider this a thumbs up from a satisfied customer - jk]

ISDN = Faster Internet on the cheap

The next hot topic in home and home office Internet looks like ISDN. You just knew the phone company would finally figure out what to do with this technology! ISDN prices are dropping fast. For an incredibly comprehensive index of ISDN info, check out http://alumni.caltech.edu/~dank/isdn/

Don’t try this at home

If this is any indication, the phonebook of the future is going to have a lot more than a first initial, last name, and a phone number: http://www.umich.edu/~dugsong/index.html#ButterBoy
