Getting here from Compuserve

I have a friend who uses Compuserve.  She was wondering how to access (or
if it is possible to access) this bulletin board from that server.

I have no idea.  Do any of you?  If so please post or mail.

Thanks

Contrary to my previous posting, Compuserve does _not_ provide usenet
access...although other on-line services do.  Compuserve does provide
its own forum hierarchy, but there is no analog to r.s.rowing.

Compuserve  does provide  access  to email that would be sent over the
net,  so  any newsgroups that  have  a  mailing  list  as well  can be
received  by those  on  compuserve.  r.s.rowing  is  not one  of those
newsgroups, however.  But you can forward the messages from this group
to her, if she  wants to read them.   You  can  even  have  this  done
automatically (see the man page on cron).

Any more info on compuserve: call 1-800-848-8199.

Somewhat related to this subject - - some rowing enthusiasts who have
e-mail but do not have access to a news reader are wondering if there
is a way to have them get postings from this newsgroup automatically
by mail.  I have been looking at my UNIX manual and am convinced that
there is a way to have new postings automatically transferred to a
temp file and them sent out to a predetermined distribution list.  I
think this is a little bit beyond my computing skills, however.
Anyone out there enough of a wiz to advise on this matter?  I would be
willing to use my UNIX account at Rutgers to do the dirty work if you
tell me what to do.  (The old fashioned way of downloading articles
manually and sending them out day by day is a little too much for me.)
