E-mail Discussion group

AYRS is associated with an electronic mail discussion group. Requests to join should be sent to ayrs-request@kfs.org. Note these are handled by a human, and may take a little time to process. Messages to the group should be sent to ayrs@kfs.org. Further details at The UnOfficial AYRS Page Please note that we may want to re-publish Internet messages to AYRS to the rest of the membership, especially when those messages contain requests for help, or provide information, accounts of experiences, or are about other matters likely to be of interest to a large proportion of the AYRS membership.

Submissions Guide

Articles for AYRS publications and newsletters should be typed in black ink, double spaced, with wide margins, on one side of A4/legal paper. Diagrams should be drawn in ink, on separate sheets for preference. We will not reject manuscripts out of hand (unless we cannot read them) but it will take time to get them typed ! Note: it is a condition of submission that the copyright of the material submitted shall be assigned to AYRS.

It would help a lot if articles were also submitted on 3.5 inch IBM/DOS-compatible floppy disk, in one of the following formats: DOS/ASCII text, Microsoft RTF (Rich Text Format), Microsoft Word/Word for Windows, Word Perfect 5.0/5.1, Windows Write. We hope to accept Adobe Acrobat some time in the future. Diagrams/photos should NOT be embedded, but sent as separate files, using Microsoft Draw V1.0, Micrographx Draw/Designer v3.x, Corel Draw v4, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PIC, PCX, AutoCAD, or Draw Perfect. Charts from Excel and Lotus 1-2-3 are also acceptable. E-mail submissions over the Internet should be sent either as ASCII text, or in one of the above formats using UUEncode. Please note CompuServe will not handle messages of more than 48K bytes each.

E-mail should be sent to Simon Fishwick. Messages should have the word 'AYRS' at the beginning of the subject line.
