Access to Conservation OnLine

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Thursday, December 16, 1993
The software that drives Conservation OnLine (CoOL) has been upgraded
and you should see improved precision and recall in your searches. But
please bear with us as we test the new software; you may experience
delays and disconnections once in a while. If you do, just try again in
a few minutes.  If you notice problems (e.g. your search returns odd
results, or you can't figure out why you got what you got, please send a
note to waiscool [at] aldus__stanford__edu explaining the problem).

For those of you accustomed to using the public wais client at and have experienced trouble in the last week or so, the
problems were caused by Thinking Machines moving their operation, and
everything has settled down to normal again. There are at least two
other public wais clients you can use, by telnet:

    telnet (, login as wais
    telnet, login as swais

In either case, be sure to answer "vt100" when you're asked for your
terminal type (if you can't emulate a vt100, you probably won't have
much fun in swais).  sunsite is a little out of date and doesn't include
cool-photohst., like, has all the CoOL
