Part of the problem is that people don't necessarily know where they are!

Can someone tell us how to get to the bitnet world, for example?

I get to bitnet by way of mitvma.mit.edu, which is a gateway between
bitnet and internet at mit. If you are on internet, the form would
be:

bitnetuser%bitnetmachine.BITNET@MITVMA.MIT.EDU

I am not sure what this looks like from the bitnet side. Nor do I
know how to reach this machine with a uucp address, but I'm sure
someone else will pipe up with that "bit" of information.
