Only people with authorized accounts may log in on this system, though
some programs can be run without logging in. Say "HELP GUEST" for a list
of these "free" programs.
To log in, type the word LOGIN (this may be abbreviated L) followed
by a space, your project name, a comma, and your programmer name:
This will log you in, and type out any system messages or personal
mail for you which may exist. You can stop the message typeout by
typing the CALL key (CONTROL-C twice from Teletypes). There are some
options in login invoked by using other characters in place of the ","
/ - types only system messages that have been posted since
you last logged in.
. - suppresses all messages.
% - lets you specify a new password.
In order to log in from the network or remotely, you must have a password.
For a more complete description of LOGIN options, say TYPE LOGIN.BH[UP,DOC].
Accounts are usually limited to faculty, students and staff of the
Computer Science Department, and to the faculty and students of related
departments with whom we share research interests. There are charges
for accounts; consult with CSD Computer Facilities for details.
These facilities are highly subsidized by the governmental agencies that
fund research projects here. Therefore, we provide outside accounts only
for such projects in which we have a collaborative interest.
If you want to apply for an account, you should communicate with
Ralph Gorin, by telephone at (415) 497-3236, by mail at the
Computer Science Department
Stanford, California 94305
or by network mail to programmer name REG. Your request should
cover the following points:
1. A brief description of your project and its goals,
2. Expected duration of the project,
3. Proposed account designation (e.g. "1,XYZ", where both the
project designation, "1" in the example, and programmer initials,
"XYZ", may be up to 3 letters). To check whether your initials
are already being used by someone, give the system command
"FINGER <initials>". If the initials are not in use, this
will type a message with the phrase "... not an authorized user".
4. Your network mail or ordinary mail address.
