CUCUG Announces its Fourth WWW Mirror Site
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 18, 1996 - The Champaign-Urbana Computer Users Group (CUCUG) announced today that Inter-Spider, an Internet Service Provider located in Cracow, Poland, would be hosting its popular World Wide Web site. A process known as "mirroring" makes a nearly identical copy of a Web site available to users closer to their own connection on the Internet. This usually results in more reliable connects and faster response.
CUCUG's webmaster, Kevin Hisel stated, "Users in Eastern Europe have been asking us to set up a mirror there for quite some time. We are grateful to Inter-Spider for finally making it possible."
Zbigniew Baniewski, proprietor of Inter-Spider added, "There is a need to establish an easy-to-connect site with news from Commodore world for many polish Amiga users." He went on to say that, "there was also a sentimental reason--my first computer was a Commodore VIC-20!"
According to Hisel, this is CUCUG's fourth mirror. Other mirrors are currently located in Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom. The primary CUCUG site is maintained at Champaign, Illinois in the United States.
CUCUG maintains the award-winning Amiga Web Directory and Agnes, an advanced Amiga WWW search utility. Both have become very popular with Amiga users throughout the world.
The address for the new CUCUG mirror site in Cracow is:
