FYI...  after lurking and posting here for some time I just got my Nov/Dec
1994 INTERNET WORLD - - - and on page 31 it mentions "atl.olympics" (not
to be confused with alt.olympics - that's another one), as in ATLanta
Olympics...

It seems to be focused only on Atlanta's upcoming Olympics.  There doesn't
seem to be a *lot* of activity, but it *is* specific to 1996.

BTW, "alt.olympics" (as in ALTernate) seems pretty dormant.  Any idea who
the hosts of both these USEnets are???

Actually, there doesn't appear to be \any/ activity on atl.olympics at
the moment.  Never has been more than a couple of folks asking about tickets.
So ACOG hasn't set up a Web page? Hmmmmm.....

What about the Constitutions' "Access Atlanta"... any plans to bring that
information to the internet?  There are regular statements in the local
paper here that the information published about the Olympics is available
"on-line"... but that doesn't help the people who aren't in the Atlanta
area.

Does the Atlanta Constitution plan any WWW?  Or are they too much in bed
with Prodigy to consider it...

I go to school in Boston and I'm able to get info from Access Atlanta.
It isn't just for citizens of the city.  I've been able to keep up
with all the local issues, my high school football team, even great
Braves coverage in the good ole days.  Plus it's the only way to get
updates on the Olympics straight from the source.  Its a bit clunky
and slow but everything is there.

is available anywhere Prodigy goes.  You can subscribe to A.A. and then
use your local Prodigy dialup number.

I know of no plans for a Web site or gopher.  I'll pass your question
along to our computer edition folks in Atlanta, though.
