The IUBio Archive is getting back to normal after a disk
crash several days ago.  The Drosophila Stock Center has
replaced the dead disk with a new one.  

Here is a partial list of new information available at IUBio archive,
either thru anonymous ftp or using Internet Gopher to ftp.bio.indiana.edu. 

New files in the IUBio-Software+Data section (or the ftp section)

Also, many of you have pledged funds to purchase an additional 
disk drive for this archive.  I very much appreciate your support 
for this expansion.  

Enough money has been pledged to purchase an added gigabyte disk drive.
As well, people at NSF and NIH have suggested I could seek funds
thru supplements to existing grants here.  

There has been a very positive response from individuals and organizations
around the world, to this request for funds to improve this archive.
A disk drive purchased from your contributions will belong
to the IUBio archive, for the first time, rather than to another project.  
These contributions are coming in now, and I hope to have enough
to purchase the drive in the next few weeks.
 
Until now IUBio Archive has lived in the goodwill part of cyberspace,
finding its home in under-utilized portions of equipment.  But it
is now using a significant chunk of real resources, and those
many of you who have pledged support for its new disk drive
can be pleased to know you will provide this archive with a
first real home of its own.   If the archive should move to another 
computer (as it has moved 4 times in the past 4 years), then
it will now be able to move with its own disk.

				Thank you,

				Don Gilbert
