Where do I find information about the ///?

* /// USER GROUPS

A user group is a great way to obtain more information about the
Apple ///. Members are knowledgable, ready to answer questions and
most offer PD (public domain) libraries with Apple /// software.
There is only one Apple /// user group still active:
Washing Apple Pi
/// SIG
12022 Parklawn Drive
Rockville, MD. 20852
(303) 984-0300
Check out WAP PD disks 3INF-01 through 15, as well as WAP01-10 for
information-on-disk.

* ONLINE SERVICES

The best place is on CompuServe, where SARAsaurs meet on board 13
of the Micronetworked Apple Users Group (MAUG) (GO APPUSER). MAUG's
Apple /// section (13) provides a fantastic forum for information
exchange, and its Data Libraries for the /// has a number of files
for downloading. (WAP PD DISK 3INF-03 offers the "Best of MAUG" for
the ///.)
Apple's EWORLD On-Line service offers some Apple /// services - Apple
// tech notes are available for download. Unforunetly, it is only
available to Mac or (soon) PC folks. (WAP is working to convert these
files to include them into our PD).

* INTERNET

There's only one real place to go on the Internet for Apple ///
discussions - West Virginia University! Message:

LISTSERV@WVNVM.WVNET.EDU

and ask to be added to their Apple /// Discussion Group so you can
get other member's messages. The group here is small - BUT it is very
knowledegable and eager to help. Jeff Fritz (JFRITZ@WVNVM.WVNET.EDU)
is the Sysop. There is also an FTP site there. Goto:

names.wvu.edu/pub/apple3.
[editor's note - names.wvu.edu doesn't seem to have an ftp server
anymore. However, ftp.wvu.edu/pub/apple3
seems to be the correct archive.]
One other place to go is the Apple // Discussion area, a Usenet
newsgroup on the Internet. Check out the comp.sys.apple2
board - where Apple ///ers lurk and answer questions on occasion.
This FAQ is also posted there from time to time.
