1. How can I get Waffle by ftp ?

  Anonymous ftp:
  -------------

Waffle (DOS version) is available via anonymous ftp from
(the old) SimTel and its various mirror sites as follows:

oak.oakland.edu
        SimTel/msdos/waffle/waf165.zip

wuarchive.wustl.edu
        /mirrors/msdos/waffle/waf165.zip

There are other Coast/SimTel mirror sites.  See the periodic postings
in comp.archives.msdos.announce and news.answers for more details.

In addition, ftp.halcyon.com has a large waffle-related FTP area:

ftp.halcyon.com
        /pub/waffle/waffle/waf165.zip

halcyon mirrors (keeps a current copy of) the (old) simtel waffle
files, the simtel offline-mail files, and the tau-ceti fx
suite.  it's your one-stop waffle ftp site.  be sure to send
mail to `ralphs' thanking him for donating the resources, and
to `hpage' for being the ongoing archivist.


2. What if I'm not on the Internet ?

  From the author's BBS:
  ---------------------
The Dark Side of the Moon BBS      1.408.245.SPAM (7726) (Tom Dell)

  From (old) SimTel and mirrors via mail-based-archive-servers:
  ------------------------------------------------------------
A number of sites run archive-servers to give non-Internet folks
the ability to do the equivalent of ftp-by-mail.

If you do not have FTP access to (old) SimTel, files may be ordered by
mail from:

   Internet-style:      listserv@vm1.nodak.edu
                        listserv@vm.ecs.rpi.edu

   UUCP-style:          uunet!vm1.nodak.edu!listserv
                        uunet!vm.ecs.rpi.edu!listserv

Send this command to the server to get its help file:
        GET PDGET HELP

NOTE: remember that if you request items from an archive-server
via mail, that your traffic goes through every system between the
server and you, and adds such load on each system.  Be courteous.

There are a number of periodic postings in news.answers that tell
how to get software via mail in far more detail than what is
provided here.

  From other BBS sites:
  ---------------------
Via mail:
        questor.wimsey.bc.ca (Steve Pershing):
                mail with text `help' to username `MailServer'
