TELNET well.sf.ca.us Type your userid or newuser to register WELL Registration **** Please READ CAREFULLY The WELL is a computer teleconferencing system running on a SEQUENT B8 computer located in Sausalito, California. The WELL offers users access to approximately 200 WELL conferences, to the UNIX operating system, to USENET and to UUCP mail. The basic cost of the WELL is a $10/month service charge plus a $2.00/hour usage fee. Your first 5 hours of usage @ $2.00/hour are free, so you can get to know the system, though you may want to wait until you get the manual to make the best use of this time. In the following registration program, type the information requested at each : prompt. Then type a carriage return. If you make a mistake while registering and want to change your entry, just use the backspace key or [control-h] to delete it. Retype the correct entry. * * * TERMINAL EMULATION * * * There are some programs that work better on the WELL if we know what kind of terminal you can "emulate." The most common emulation is vt100 - but other types include ansi or adm3a. If you don't know what's appropriate, just press [return], the system will default to "dumb"... (Which refers to the terminal, NOT the user!) All accounts must have the name of an individual associated with them even if this is a corporate account. This name is not a login ID. The WELL does not accept anonymous accounts except by special arrangement.
