Rec.Models.Rockets Frequently Asked Questions: PART 3 OF 14

ROCKETRY ON THE INTERNET


3.1  How do I get to the r.m.r archive site?

      The old Sunsite rec.models.rockets archive has not been active since
      sometime in 1999.  The archives are now part of the ibilio.org domain:

          http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/archives/rec.models.rockets

--------------------------------------------------
3.2  What is available from the r.m.r archive?

      The r.mr. archive used to be the 'official' archive site for 
rocketry-related
      materials submitted by r.m.r contributors.  The archive has been 
static for
      the past few years.  The archive still has a number of useful
      files.  The following are some of the subdirectories of the archive,
      and a brief description of what is in them.

       ARTICLES - documents.  Informative how-to articles, and other text.

       BATF - BATF information

       CATALOGS - manufacturer catalogs (a few might actually be current)

       CYBERROC - various software for rocketry, including VCP

       DIGITRAK - a directory for DigiTrak rocket flight modeling software

       ELECTRONICS - rocketry electronics

       FAA - FAA information

       GRAPHICS - pictures of rockets, launches, and people, scale data, 
logos, etc.

       LISTS - certified motor lists, club listings

       PLANS - rocket plans, including old kit plans and decal scans

       PROGRAMS - rocketry software, including tracking software and propep

       PROGRAMS.MAC - rocketry software for the Mac

       PROGRAMS1 - more rocketry software

       PROGRAMS2 - even more rocketry software

       PROGRAMS3 - yet even more rocketry software

       PROGRAMS4 - lots more rocketry software - Go Nuts!

       R.M.R_POSTINGS - an archive of every r.m.r. posting since late Nov. 1991

       RASP - a directory for RASP rocket flight modeling software (PC and Mac)

       RMRFAQ - the r.m.r. FAQ

       ROCKetCAD - demo CAD software for rockets

       SOUNDS - .WAV and Macintosh System 7 sound files of launches

       Winroc - a directory for WinRoc rocket flight modeling software

--------------------------------------------------
3.3  How do I upload files to the r.m.r. archive?

       At this time, you can't.  This will change soon.

--------------------------------------------------
3.4  I have read-only access to r.m.r.  Is there any way I can still post
         articles to the newsgroup?

      Try http://www.google.com/

--------------------------------------------------
3.5  What are some neat rocketry web pages to check out?
