Subject: [1] Standards
From: Standards

There's a killer supply of computer-related standards at
http://www.cmpcmm.com/cc/. Fibre Channel and several
mass-storage-related items can be found there.

The ANSI and IEEE standards can be purchased in hardcopy form (the
only way some of them are available) from Global Engineering
Documents, (800)854-7179 or (303)792-2181.
