different mailing list programs, each of which has their own procedure
to subscribe to a list. Try sending mail to LISTSERV@<host address>,
or MAJORDOMO@<host address>, or LISTPROC@<host address>, where <host
address> is the part of the address for the list you're interested in
that comes after the @ sign. The mail should have nothing in the
subject line, and the body of the message should consist of nothing
more than SUB <listname> <yourname> where <listname> is the name of
the mailing list you are subscribing to (the part *before* the @ sign)
and <yourname> is your name. If this isn't quite the right format for
the mailing list software in use, read the error message you get in
return carefully, and you should be able to figure out the right
format. 

If this is unsuccessful, try appending -Request to the name of the
list, and sending mail to that address. E.g., try to subscribe to
h-costume@indra.com by sending mail to h-costume-Request@indra.com. 

Many of these lists are places where modern-world scholars
communicate, and therefore are not places where persona is appropriate
-- use your modern name.

2.2 Are there archives of SCA information that I can access?

Yes. There are several sites that contain various files of SCA
information, including this file, Corpora, the Heraldic Rules for
Submission, the Online Armorial, several kingdom's laws, rules for
combat, and so on. Each site has a different collection of material,
so you may need to investigate more than one to find what you need. 

2.2.1 Archives via FTP?

Contact your local system administrator to learn how to use anonymous
FTP to retrieve these files. Those without FTP access should send
e-mail to mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu with "send
usenet/news.answers/finding-sources" in the body to find out how to do
FTP by e-mail. 

ftp://ftp.pbm.com/pub/ 
     maintained by lindahl@pbm.com (Gregory Blount) 

2.2.2 Archives via Gopher?

Contact your local system administrator for a gopher client. 

gopher://heort.bsuvc.bsu.edu 
     administered by Gwydion ap Myrddin <00mjstum@bsuvc.bsu.edu> 

2.2.3 Archives via World Wide Web?

Contact your local system administrator for a WWW browser. 
The web pages available are changing so dynamically that I don't want
to attempt to keep a list up to date here. Instead, use this link, and
search for other sites of interest to you from here. If you have a web
page you want to make known, look at this page to find the most
appropriate place to link it in. 

http://www.sca.org/ 

An SCA search engine can be found at:

http://www.scahunt.com

This site has nearly 400 sites signed up on a variety of topics of
interest to SCA members.

2.3 Does anyone have a contact in ...

One option for finding people is to look in the Rolls Ethereal. This
works best if you know someone's name. 

Another option is to look in the Home Page Listing maintained by
Ellisif Flakkari at
http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/sca-people

2.4 What are the Rolls Ethereal?

The Rolls Ethereal list people on the Rialto, at least name and
electronic address, and often interests, location, and awards. The
Rolls are maintained by Justin du Coeur <rolls@waks.org>
They are available via World Wide Web at
http://www.waks.org/rolls

2.5 What's this alt.sca I found?

The first SCA newsgroup was named alt.sca. When the traffic grew to a
respectable size, we moved to rec.org.sca because the rec hierarchy
gets better distribution. alt.sca is currently defunct, but still
carried at some sites. We recommend that users of alt.sca move over to
rec.org.sca, and ask their system administrator to remove alt.sca from
their system, to avoid future confusion. 

2.6 Where can I get songs and lyrics?

There are a number of sites that archive song sources. Many of these
are dial-up sites, requiring the use of a modem. Please do not ask for
technical help with this on the Rialto -- there are sure to be better
sources of this information close to you. 

    TIDMADT, Atlantia           (703) 370-7054
    SCRIBE, Ansteorra           (214) 826-8141
