On a related subject, I notice the finger server at quake@.................
seems to be down.  When it was working it had a message to the effect that
its days were numbered and there were new (better) ways to get the same
information.  I'd rather not have to deal with the HTML tags.

Does anyone know of a source of worldwide event information that is
straight text (no HTML tags).  Text in the same format as the old finger
server would be great as I have scripts to decode it.
