Conservation OnLine moved

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Saturday, January 22, 1994
Effective immediately, Conservation OnLine (CoOL) is no longer located
at The new address is

Service will be discontinued at the old address, so please start using
the new address immediately.  (This should be the only move you need to
know about; if we move again, it will be 'transparent' to the users).

*   If you use the publicly accessible SWAIS client at,, or, everything is already
    set up and you shouldn't notice any difference.

*   If you are running your own client, you will need to pick up new src

      cool-directory-of-servers from the Sources window into the "In
      these sources" area of the Questions window. Enter "source" in the

      list of 10 databases, all beginning with "cool".

      For each of the 10:
        Double click to retrieve the .src file
        Set whatever options you like (eg fonts, max number of files, etc).

        Click on MacTCP and enter in the Address

        system absolutely chokes on domain names, the IP address is, but if we move again, you're on your own...)
