   It exists to provide a medium for ICS members to share 
   information with each other, and to access other sources of 
   information available outside the ICS community.

     The ICS volunteers who have built ICSNet look forward 
                to your active participation!  

     By working together, we can build ICS into a vibrant
                force in Industrial Computing. 

     NOTE THESE MAIN COMMANDS!!! -
     help - This gets you into the "help" system, which is menu-driven.

     new  - This scans through all the newsgroups you have joined looking
            for new messages (we automatically join you to a number of
            interesting groups, but there are others).  Note that the
            first time you log in, there will be no "new" messages - try
            again tomorrow.

     join/unjoin - These commands add or delete the current newsgroup from
            your scan list (see above).

     To move to a specific newsgroup, type the name of the newsgroup and 
     hit (enter).  To read messages in the current group, type "read".
     In read mode, typing the message number will show that message.
     To get a list of newsgroups, type "help newsgroups".
