    No standard files containing all your search terms were found.

    Your search - Rabies Vaccine - did not match any documents.

    Suggestions:

    * Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    * Try different keywords.
    * Try more general keywords.
    * Try fewer keywords.

    Hitachi's "Life Without The Hard Drive" has a view on search technology very similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuMIDxC9JTI

    was a local BBS (run on an Apple //c) that periodically dialed into a local University computer IIRC. You could fashion an email that would get routed to a computer (at MIT?) that would parse the email for commands to do a gopher search and would email the reply.

      I relied on analagous services for FTP back in the days when the only options for Internet access in my city were one commercial ISP ($10/meg for email, $40/meg for anything else) or a free council-operated service that provided a VMS account with mail and news, but no FTP.
