Retrieving old issues & new gopher feature

Some problems occurred during the sending of the previous
digest (WD 2.14). Please accept our apologies in case you did not
receive this issue. You can always retrieve it using anonymous ftp
or gopher (cf supra).

Our gopher server also has a new feature that will facilitate searching
through old issues. If you choose the first item from the wavelet
digest information, you will be prompted for a keyword. The server
will then retrieve items (nicely cut out from previous digests)
which are relevant to this keyword. The resulting listing will be
ordered on the basis of keyword frequency and other factors, so
ideally the more relevant articles will appear near the beginning
of the list.

Try it out with keywords such as "fingerprint" or "matlab". Also, more
complex combinations of keywords may provide worthwhile results.

Special thanks go to Brygg Ullmer, a computer science major from the
University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign, who maintains the gopher
server and was able to add this new feature in only a few minutes.
