Welcome to the deleuze-guattari archive!
There are numerous ways to access this archive and to make its contents
useful. Here are some possibilities:
The archive is located in two places: the first somewhere in Texas on a
machine called Deleuze, the second somewhere in Virginia on a machine
called jefferson (don't ask). The first machine is accessible only by ftp.
i. The Deleuze machine
To get at it, type "ftp deleuze.uta.edu"
It will ask you for a login id and password; type "deleuze" for both.
Type "cd deleuze-guattari/1994"
Then type "ls" which should give you the list of the files that are on
the archive. They are labelled in the format d-g_month.Yr (which
contain a month's worth of posts), with the headers stripped to reduce
To find out which one you want, you may want to look at the index files
first, which are labelled dg_Month.Yr.subj.
To receive any of these files, type "get filename"
then type "quit"
And this should do it.
You may be interested to know that these files can serve as mail folders--
and this may indeed be the easiest way to read them. Simply move them
into the directories mail or Mail (depending upon which program you use:
mail for pine and Mail for elm, for example) by typing the command
"mv filename mail" or "mv filename Mail"
and then go into whichever mail program you use, and go to the folder
which will have the same name as the filename.
ii. The Jefferson machine
type ftp jefferson.village.virginia.edu
When asked, type "anonymous" for login id and your full email address
type cd pub/pubs/listservs/spoons/deleuze-guattari.archive
Then follow the ftp instructions as above.
type gopher jefferson.village.virginia.edu
then choose the following directories consecutively:
Publications of the Institute/Discussion Lists/spoons/deleuze-
Here the files will not be seen as mail files, but as subdirectories,
within which each message can be accessed individually--this is
probably the easiest way to browse through the archive. Read the archive
on gopher or retrieve the individual messages through your gopher
c. World Wide Web
In your WWW browser, choose th URL
Then locate the archives (near the bottom of the page) and choose
As with gopher, here the files are easily browsable, and available as
These files are also available via. email, through the majordomo
program. Send a "help" message to firstname.lastname@example.org
to explore this option. Essentially, the relevant command is "get
deleuze-guattari filename" (to be contained in a message to majordomo).
Any questions, don't hesistate to ask.
