3.1 How do I get to the r.m.r archive site? The old Sunsite rec.models.rockets archive has not been active since sometime in 1999. The archives are now part of the ibilio.org domain: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/archives/rec.models.rockets
3.2 What is available from the r.m.r archive? The r.mr. archive used to be the 'official' archive site for rocketry-related materials submitted by r.m.r contributors. The archive has been static for the past few years. The archive still has a number of useful files. The following are some of the subdirectories of the archive, and a brief description of what is in them. ARTICLES - documents. Informative how-to articles, and other text. BATF - BATF information CATALOGS - manufacturer catalogs (a few might actually be current) CYBERROC - various software for rocketry, including VCP DIGITRAK - a directory for DigiTrak rocket flight modeling software ELECTRONICS - rocketry electronics FAA - FAA information GRAPHICS - pictures of rockets, launches, and people, scale data, logos, etc. LISTS - certified motor lists, club listings PLANS - rocket plans, including old kit plans and decal scans PROGRAMS - rocketry software, including tracking software and propep PROGRAMS.MAC - rocketry software for the Mac PROGRAMS1 - more rocketry software PROGRAMS2 - even more rocketry software PROGRAMS3 - yet even more rocketry software PROGRAMS4 - lots more rocketry software - Go Nuts! R.M.R_POSTINGS - an archive of every r.m.r. posting since late Nov. 1991 RASP - a directory for RASP rocket flight modeling software (PC and Mac) RMRFAQ - the r.m.r. FAQ ROCKetCAD - demo CAD software for rockets SOUNDS - .WAV and Macintosh System 7 sound files of launches Winroc - a directory for WinRoc rocket flight modeling software
3.3 How do I upload files to the r.m.r. archive? At this time, you can't. This will change soon.
3.4 I have read-only access to r.m.r. Is there any way I can still post articles to the newsgroup? Try http://www.google.com/
