I've reached the end of my rope.  In weeks of trying, I have not *once*
been able to connect to sunsite.unc.edu.  I realize that it's a busy
site, but this borders on ridiculous.  Is there some other way in
besides anonyous login?

I'm looking for simulation software (for Macs), and I'd like to snarf
the Trident plans, too.  If anyone knows of a mirror site, or knows
somewhere else where I could get these things, would you please send me
a URL or ftp address?

Thanks in advance...

A little while later I received the following helpful response from Wayne
Hortensius:

Sure enough, that worked like a champ.  If anyone else is having the same
trouble that I was having, give this a try.

Thanks, Wayne!

I never encountered problems to connect to sunsite. Maybe it's because of
the timeshift between Germany and the USA. Try to connect at odd times when
the 'normal traffic' died down.

Good luck!

Mark,
        I know that this would upset me, if I were you, but I just
tried (1:04 EDT) and got right in.  I point my browser at
http://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/archives/rec.models.rockets/
and presto.  It doesn't always work, but it works more often than
when I used to get in via ftp.

I keep a copy of the Mac simulation software CompuRoc 2.0 (which I'm
coauthor of) on ftp.netcom.com in /pub/dw/dwade/outgoing or somesuch
directory.  Even better, you can also get it from your favorite info-mac
mirror.

ftp://mirror.apple.com/mirrors/Info-Mac.Archive/_Science_%26_Math/com...

The interface is mediocre in spots (the original was written 10 years ago
and sometimes it shows), but it has a GUI and it works pretty well.
Someday I'll rewrite it in PowerPlant with a modern interface but there
just hasn't been enough shareware response to justify spending the time on
it.
