[rdm at cfcl.com: PTF Bulletin: Issue 2-1 is in production]
Sent to: mbp at geom.umn.edu This news bulletin is sent twice a year to people that have purchased copies of PTF, had email interaction with the PTF project, etc. If you do not wish to get these bulletins, please email a note to ptf at cfcl.com so we can remove your name from the list. By including the "Sent to:" line, found just above this paragraph, you can give us a clear indication of which name to remove. We try to use direct addresses, to avoid mailing list explosions. If this message came to you via an inappropriate mailing-list, PLEASE let us know (again, including the "Sent to:" line), so we can track it down. If you are getting multiple copies, or if we have a faulty address for you, let us know the address(es) involved, and which one you prefer. - Rich Morin, rdm at cfcl.com Prime Time Freeware, Volume 2, Number 1 (PTF 2-1) PTF continues to be aimed at adventurous UNIX programmers. To build PTF 2-1, we started with PTF 1-2, updating everything to the latest version we could find. Then we added several hundred megabytes of new material. The result would not fit on two CD-ROMs, so we deleted some large, stable items: Andrew, CLU, Columbia Kermit, comp.sources.*, Cygnus Solaris-2 and Vintage Releases, GRASS, ISODE, LispView, Magic, MLX, NCSA Sample Data, RSK's Golden Oldies, Postie Pat, T, UnixTeX, wframe, WRL Modula-2, and X11R5 If you happen to need one of these, don't worry; we still sell PTF 1-2. If you already have a copy of PTF 1-2, hang onto it. You'll probably go back to it on occasion. [N.B., PTF 1-2 is available to domestic customers, but we have suspended all foreign shipments due to an export question.] If the copies of comp.sources.* on PTF 1-2 are not current enough for your needs, we suggest you look into the 1993 NetGems disc: Sterling Software 1404 Fort Crook Rd. South +1 402-291-8300 kent at sterling.com Bellevue, NE 68005 USA +1 402-291-4362 (FAX) In summary, about 2/3 of PTF 2-1 is new; the rest is updated from PTF 1-2. Once again, we are pleased that there is no increase in price. We take our motto (Quality freeware; affordable prices) very seriously. By delivering two discs of compressed archives, we can give you a lot of software for your money. We want to be your favorite distributor of UNIX-related freeware; send us (ptf at cfcl.com) your comments and suggestions. Now for the details: 1) The issue consists of two ISO-9660 CD-ROMs, bound into a 50+ page booklet. Each disc contains 600 MB of compressed archives, notes, etc. The issue unpacks to over 3 GB (3000 MB). 2) PTF is primarily a collection of UNIX-related freeware source code. Here are some of the larger items, including their compressed sizes: KB (C) PTF Directory Name Package Name ====== ================== ============ 299508 docprep/format/tex/uk UK TeX Archive 82198 language/modula_3/src SRC Modula-3 81650 math/netlib NetLib Archive (math and sim.) 78792 icot ICOT (5th Gen.

We ship each issue as soon as it is ready, charging your credit card 70% of the list price, plus applicable tax and S/H charges. You have two weeks to try out the issue. If you like it, fine. Otherwise, return it to us in good condition. We will credit your card with a full refund. Either of us (yourself or PTF) may cancel this agreement at any time. PTF may cancel the agreement without notice. You must notify us, however, so that we remove you from the Plan. To join, use the form above, checking the PTF Buying Plan slot. ============================================================================ Still with us? OK, here are a few special requests: 1) If you have a major package on PTF, or if you were an active member of the Advisory Board over the last six months, you are eligible for a complementary issue. Let us know if you think you qualify, and why. We will be doing our own homework, but may well miss someone if we are not reminded. 2) If you have expertise in a particular discipline, and would like to be on the Advisory Board, please let us know. We need area experts who can direct us to interesting freeware packages, point out errors, and so forth. 3) We're looking for technical bookstores with a strong UNIX focus. (If a store has two dozen UNIX-related titles, it is a good candidate.) If you know of such a store in your area (or elsewhere :-), please let us know. We will try to convince them to carry PTF. 4) If you are interested in reselling PTF, please let us know. We offer all the usual sorts of discounts and terms. With a new issue coming out, now is a *very* good time to become a PTF reseller. 5) If you are part of a club or organization that could use (or resell) multiple copies of PTF, please get in touch. Our quantity discounts can make this a very attractive way to buy. Yours, Rich Morin rdm at cfcl.com (Internet) Proprietor, PTF +1 415-873-7841 (voice/fax)
