[04] CAN MY BBS OR UNIX COMPUTER DO UUCP WITH SDF? WHAT IS LONESTAR.ORG?

     Yes.  The SDF can also provide your BBS or UNIX host with an ARPANET
     domain.  UUCP can be used to transfer files, email and USENET articles
     between two networked hosts.  It is recommended that you read the UUCP
     setup text file ~ftp/pub/sdf/uucp/uucp_with_sdf for all the details.

     To join SDF's UUCP network, send your uuname and optionally a domain
     name in an email to sdf!uucp from an SDF host.  A password and 
     instructions for connecting will be sent.

     Also, the FTP directory can be accessed via ANONYMOUS UUCP using
     the "nuucp" login (no password).  The UUPATH to the FTP directory
     is ~ftp/pub/

     WHAT IS LONESTAR.ORG?

     The LONESTAR.ORG namespace was created in 1987.  This domain is
     used to network several UUCP sites in Texas and some outside of Texas.  

     SDF continues to be a member of LONESTAR.ORG for historical reasons.
     We currently include all new UUCP hosts in the natverk.org domain.
