Tom,


Well, I went to check out the URL you mentioned, and it doesn't
exist.  At least there is no DNS record for this domain:


	www.alta-vista.software.digital.com


I went over to www.alta-vista.com and tried to locate the software
using variations of "electronic business tower"...but got nothing
but trash back.  (Sheesh, I *really* don't like using Alta Vista!)


Perhaps you have another URL I can try?


By the way, you wrote:

I, too, have used "VAXnotes" for many years and have really come to love
that product.  It is *so* much better than usenet news, etc.  It's a
shame Digital never made (and marketed!) an improved GUI version of
the original text product.


However, you should note (no pun intended ;-) that there is absolutely
no relationship between Digital's "VAXnotes" and Lotus' "Notes"
products.
Lotus developed that product on its own, and it has nothing whatsoever
to do with the fine Digital product.  Just thought you might want to
know.


Let me know if you find any other pointers to the Alta Vista Forum
and I'll try to look at it as soon as possible.  Thanks!
