Dear HistoNetters,

Mark Lewis asked:

	Excuse my ignorance, but what is the difference between the
Histotech homepage and Histonet?
	Is Histonet just an e-mail type system where the homepage has
postings, e-mail, FAQ's,  Other Stuff like different links? What are the
benefits of the home page vs histonet ?
	I am not on the internet, I only get the histonet e-mails.

Good question.

The HistoNet is a discussion group, conducted by e-mail.  Once
subscribed, individuals may send e-mail posts to a central computer
which distributes everyone's posts to all of the subscribers.

"The Histotech's Home Page" is a World Wide Web site, accessible using a
web browser, like Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator.  It has a
fixed address on the Web (
<> , and fixed content.  Changes can only be
made by a webmaster (in this case, me), who has access to the files on
the computer where the site is stored.  "The Histotech's Home Page" has
a "Directory of Histotechs on the Internet", job listings, FAQ's and
links to sites on the Web of interest to histotechs whose content has
been screened for accuracy by an expert (Peggy Wenk).

Best regards,
Steven Slap
