The Archives will be moved as a whole unit and when they are settled, we
will be able to carry on business as usual. Until then, I would suggest
holding on to any submissions you receive and wait until the Archives are
settled in their new home before you upload them. Otherwise, they may get
lost in the shuffle! I'm sure it won't be long...

>> Drum roll please!!
>> - notice the "hosted By RW" at the top of the
>> screen is gone. We are now hosted by USGenWeb Archives
>> The only operative links are for Alaska. Click on the toc link and it
>> takes you to akfiles.htm. Most of the links to other tocs on akfiles.htm
>> are operational. I did not fix the links to the data files or links on
>> the
>> following pages.
>> Go back to the main toc (and I did fix the fm listing, too) and click on
>> the ftp directory for AK -- ta!!-da!!!
>> Notice that the ftp directory is now called
>> <>;, not
>> ftp..... the only difference. File managers account is set up much like
>> rootsweb - with an archive_html and an archive_ftp directory. So
>> everyone should know the drill.
>> In addition to using your usual ftp client to upload, there is a
>> web-based uploader that allows you to upload zipped files. It limits you
>> to 2MB per zip file, but with text files you can squash quite a bit into
>> 2 MB. It may be possible to upload bigger zips. But we (David Crosby or
>> I) would have to unzip them for you.
>> I will be sending out user id's, pws, and how-to
>> instructions for fixing tocs. It's been a long Saturday, David and Debra
>> Crosby have worked their fingers to the bone. David's parents are
>> celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary Sunday and I did something
>> foolish - I gave him the day off! Hug your parents for us David!
>> David & Debra have tested the forms with our new location. They will not
>> be able to switch the forms over to usgwarchives until files and
>> directories have been created, so things will continue to go to rootsweb
>> unless David has flipped the switched and is holding.
>> Here is what you will need:
>> ftp server address: usgwarchives
>> your user id will be: xxuser --- where xx is you state
>> Their ftp is a bit clunky. It seems to time out on occasion and you are
>> sitting there with nothing happening. What I do is to ship another
>> directory,
>> which wakes up the server <g> So don't make a huge batch to submit at
>> once.
>> Individual pws to follow.
