- Archie Request Form
Archie is a service which can be used to search a large number of ftp archives
for a specific file or name. The Archie server does a recursive directory
listing of most of the public ftp sites, and allows you to search this
database. Again, a excellent tool.

Services Ohio State has built one of the great tools on the web. This
archive contains html'd versions of all the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
