I just posted the following message to USENET.  Briefly, I offered to
provide copies of diskettes containing Kermit for the Commodore 64 for
seven dollars, to defray my costs (diskette, mailer, postage, wear and
tear, and my time - which will be a lot, considering that I only own a
single disk drive, and therefore will have to swap disks back and
forth to perform a copy.)

To address your problem (how to obtain Kermit) I thought I'd let you
know that I am willing to provide Kermit diskettes to those people who
are reluctant or unable to go through the downloading procedure.  For
$7.00 (U.S. funds), I will provide a diskette containing the
executable code and documentation file.  (Outside North America,
please enclose an extra $1.00 to cover additional mailing expense.)
Send requests and inquiries about Commodore-64 Kermit disks to the
address below.

Note that Kermit is written using the CROSS cross assembler which runs
only on DEC-10's and DEC-20's; hence enclosing the source code would
not be of much help.  An additional problem is that the source code is
larger than an entire 1541 diskette, and therefore would be too much
trouble for me to copy.

Please note that I am not conducting a business.  I am making this
offer to increase the availability of Kermit, which I hold to be a
fine program.  I must stress that Kermit may be copied free of charge,
so long as this copying is not for "explicitly commercial purposes"
(Taken from Columbia University's policy document on Kermit
distribution), and those of you who wish to do so may download it free
of charge from Columbia University machine CU20B (on ARPANET), using
BITSERVE (from BITNET), or via UUCP from host OKSTATE.

If people have questions, they can contact me by sending mail to
lenoil@mit-eddie.  Mit-eddie is on both the DoD internet and USENET, so
I'm fairly accessible.  Also note that I will not be at my present
U.S.  mail address for this summer, but my network mail will forward.
Therefore, starting in June, it would be a good idea to first send me
computer mail to obtain my current mailing address, rather than suffer
the problems of delay and lossage of forwarded U.S. mail.

Yours truly,
