info is just a poor-ol' NeXT, it will be upgraded soon to a Sun.
It crashes from time to time, probably because of memory running
out or something like that (I'm not a NeXTpert, this is only what
the big boys have told me).

So please be patient with us, these problems will soon be history.

Yes, this is currently true, BUT I want to EMPHASIZE that this
is NOT official, so DO NOT in any circumstances make links to www1
that start with /hypertext/...!!!

There is no duplication; both info and www1 NFS mount /hypertext
from the same machine; so you should get exactly the same stuff
from either machine (please don't flame us, we know this NFS mounting
is very stupid, and we'll fix it once we get enough diskspace).

This is very true and oh, so sad.
