 Unfortunately I'm unable to make the RIPE meeting at the end of this
 month.

 I wish you a fruitful meeting - particularly in the area of networked
 information services and user support.

 A couple of items you may wish to consider...

 The new NSFNET NIC is saying that they may charge for access to their
 information by non-US sites.  They (amongst others) are tasked with
 providing a Directory of information resources.  To be of any value -
 such a resource would depend on there being a two way flow of
 information between US and non-US sites in gathering together this
 info.  I wouldn't be happy about them charging for information
 collected by/from us!!


 Several reports are available from the Mailbase Server - either via
 email or anonymous ftp - that may be of interest.

 In particular - I would like your help in updating the report on
 Information Sevices and User Support in Europe.  Please contact me if
 you wish to contribute an entry for your country.
