1. Address Changes Around the Corner... As MTO heads toward the end of its third year, some slight changes in our addresses are about to take effect.
Tom Heft, Unix System Programmer at Harvard, whose technical expertise brought SMT Networking on-line, will move to Brown University on August 1st. He has been working with me to prepare for the transfer to boethius of all software and datafiles now on the HUSC and FAS machines at Harvard. The bulk of the transfer will take place over the next few weeks. MTO subscribers will receive a notice about address changes. In brief, the changes are as follows:
a. New listproc address: firstname.lastname@example.org for subscribing to MTO and mto-talk, for changing addresses, passwords, postponing mail, etc.
b. New mto-serv address: email@example.com for retrieving MTO items and searching the MTO database with our FileServer
c. New anonymous FTP address: smt.ucsb.edu for retrieving MTO items through anonymous FTP. The directory structure, as outlined in the current (though soon outdated) MTO Guide will remain nearly the same:
pub/mto/docs (documentation and information files) pub/mto/issues (containing subdirectories for all back issues of MTO) pub/mto/software (MTO software)
[NOTE: the old directory paths included 'smt' after 'pub'. The new directory paths omit 'smt'.]
d. WWW addresses The URLs for MTO remain the same since our WWW server has always been on boethius:
MTO page: http://smt.ucsb.edu/mto/index.html Boethius page: http://smt.ucsb.edu/boethius.html SMT Help Desk: http://smt.ucsb.edu/help/smt-help.html (see below regarding the new WWW edition of SMT Help Desk)
A revised edition of the MTO Guide will be announced once the transfer is complete and all administrative software has been tested. Please bear with us if some glitches remain after testing. Do not begin to use the new addresses yet. A notice will be broadcast once they take effect. In case of problems, please contact me or the MTO Manager, Robert Judd:
MTO General Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org MTO Manager: email@example.com
2. WWW Edition of the SMT Help Desk Recently, Patrick Shove, the SMT Help Desk Manager, prepared a Web page with links to short documents on various procedures that are important for MTO subscribers, e.g. how to change an address, change a password, postpone and restart MTO mail delivery, etc. The page also has a link for sending email to Shove in case of problems. Take a look at the new Help Desk page at the URL http://smt.ucsb.edu/help/smt-help.html. Send queries and suggestions to Shove at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. WWW Essay in MTO 1.4 MTO 1.3 contained a commentary, by William Rothstein, formatted with HTML. Rothstein provided ASCII text and I added some basic HTML tags as a way of showing how an MTO essay might look if formatted with HTML and viewed in a Web browser. MTO 1.4 includes an essay formatted with HTML by the author, David Loberg Code ("Listening for Schubert's 'Doppelgaengers'"). Those who have not yet tried out the Web should take this opportunity to do so. Robert Judd prepared a guide to WWW tools and to the necessary steps for gaining access to the Web. The document is named www-tools.txt and is available in the MTO archive, in the docs subdirectory. (An HTML version is also available, at http://smt.ucsb.edu/mto/docs/www-tools.html.) At the fall meeting of SMT in New York, MTO Co-editor, Ann McNamee, and mto-talk Manager, Claire Boge, will give "live" demonstrations of multi- media essays, integrating text, graphics and audio, as samples of how future MTO articles may look, *and* sound! Those who plan to attend the New York meeting should make time to be at the special session devoted to networking in order to see those demonstrations, and to get information and advice on getting Web access.
4. mto-talk In comparison to past months, traffic on mto-talk has been sparse since the release of issue 1.3. Hopefully, the two essays in 1.4 will stimulate dialog and reactivate mto-talk, which is an important component of MTO. One of the significant benefits of electronic publishing, and one which differentiates it from traditional publishing, is the speed of distribution, which allows immediate, interactive discussion among readers and authors. mto-talk was established for just that purpose. Claire Boge, mto-talk Manager, and I encourage subscribers to initiate and participate in discussions about the current and future articles.
All new MTO subscribers automatically become subscribers to mto-talk, and remain so unless they cancel their subscriptions. Those who have cancelled, but would now like to resubscribe, should send a message to the Harvard listproc address (email@example.com) with the following text in the body of the message:
subscribe mto-talk YourFristName YourLastName [fill in your names]
After August 1, send the message to the new, boethius listproc address (firstname.lastname@example.org). We look forward to seeing your contributions to mto-talk!

8. Copyright Statement +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+ Overview: 1. Retrieving MTO Items (with mto-serv, FTP, and through WWW) 2. Subscribing to MTO 3. Retrieving MTO Documentation 4. Queries and Communications
1. RETRIEVING MTO ITEMS
MTO FileServer Items are retrieved by sending an email message to the MTO FileServer, mto-serv, or through anonymous FTP (see below). To use the FileServer, send a message to one of the following two addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Internet) email@example.com (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the body of the message include the following lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path YourEmailAddress (Bitnet addresses *must* include .BITNET) send Item (specify item, as listed below) send Item (additional "send" lines, if desired)
After the word "path," enter your full email address (Bitnet users must include .BITNET). Be *sure* to include the word "path" followed by a valid email address. Without the "path" line, mto-serv will not know where to deliver requested items. To retrieve items from the *current* issue of MTO, after the word "send," replace "Item" with the one of the following options:
articles (= main article[s]) gifs (= musical examples) reviews (= review[s]) commentaries (= commentaries on past MTO articles) dissertations (= dissertation listings) announcements (= announcements) jobs (= job listings) package (= all the above items, in a single package) toc (= current table of contents)
path firstname.lastname@example.org send package
********************************************************************** CAUTIONARY NOTE: Subscribers with restricted emailbox space should be careful when using the "package" option. A full issue of MTO, text and musical examples, can be quite large and may "crash" an emailbox of limited size. It may be safer to request a few files at a time, and to remove them from the emailbox before requesting more files. **********************************************************************
For instructions on retrieving items from back issues, or complete back issues of MTO, consult the document "mto-guide.txt" (see below, on retrieving MTO documentation).
FTP MTO items may also be retrieved through anonymous FTP. The site is: fas.harvard.edu). Use "anonymous" as loginID and your email address as password. Change to the directory pub/smt/mto (with the command: cd pub/smt/mto). The file mto.current contains all items constituting the current issue; toc.current is the most recent table of contents. The individual items of the current issue have filenames that begin as follows: mto.yy.v.i, where "yy" is the last two digits of the current year; "v" is the current volume number; and "i" is the current issue number (example: mto.94.0.6). Refer to the MTO Guide for further information.
WWW MTO also has a World-Wide Web page. The URL is:
Follow the links to the current or past issues.
2. SUBSCRIBING TO MTO To subscribe to MTO, send an email message to one of the following "listproc" addresses:
email@example.com (Internet) firstname.lastname@example.org (Bitnet)
Leave the "Subject:" line blank and as the text of the message include the following single line (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
subscribe mto-list YourFirstName YourLastName
You will receive a message confirming your subscription. Once the subscription is confirmed, to receive the MTO Guide send a message to one of the "listproc" addresses shown above, and as the body of the message include the single line: information mto-list
To cancel a subscription, send the following single line to one of the "listproc" addresses (not to mto-serv!): unsubscribe mto-list
[NOTE: Do not send email to the "listproc" addresses for anything other than initiating and terminating subscriptions to MTO. Further, do not send email to mto-list@husc. mto-list is solely for broadcasting MTO to its subscribers, *not* for communication among subscribers, nor for retrieving MTO items (done with mto-serv), nor for communication with the Editor (address above). Please do not send mail to mto-list@husc, *nor* use a "reply" command on email distributed through mto-list.]
3. RETRIEVING MTO DOCUMENTATION Several MTO explanatory documents are available through mto-serv:
mto-guide.txt (the MTO Guide, also retrievable from "listproc") Instructions for a. subscribing to MTO b. retrieving MTO items (articles, reviews, commentaries, musical examples, and figures) c. posting items in MTO (announcements, jobs, dissertations) d. searching the MTO database authors.txt Guidelines for authors policy.txt MTO editorial policy software.txt List of available software (IBM and Mac) for MTO subscribers, and instructions for retrieving the software mto.index List of all files in the MTO archive (updated regularly)
To retrieve any of these documents, send an email message to one of the "mto-serv" addresses (not to the "listproc" addresses!), and use the format shown above ("path" line with full email address, and one or more "send" lines specifying the desired document[s]). For example, to retrieve the document called "software.txt," address a message to mto-serv and as the body of the message include only the following two lines (no personal letterheads or signatures!):
path email@example.com (Bitnet addresses must include .BITNET) send software.txt send authors.txt (additional "send" lines for more items)
The words "path" (followed by an email address) and "send" (followed by the desired item) *must* appear.
4. QUERIES AND COMMUNICATIONS Send all queries and communications (announcements, letters to the Editor, etc.) to one of the following addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+
