Subject: Smile Face Orthography
If anyone has ever been interested in conventions for conveying non-literal
expressions and characatures in ASCII text, there is a great new program
recently installed on our Suns, "smiley".
usage: smiley [-V] [-e] [-l] [-f] [smiley ...]
where:	-V	print program version
	-e	explain the face in $SMILEY
	-l	list all the smileys
	-f	print a random smiley, face only
	smiley	explain the given smileys
(no args)	print a random smiley
Some Examples:
(-:	Australian
	Don Ellis from Tektronix
	left-handed
:-)	normal smiley face
4:-)	George Washington
7:)	Ronald Reagan
7:-)	Fred Flintstone
7:^]	Ronald Reagan
8-#	death
8-)	excited		glasses		sunglasses	swimmer
8-O	"Omigod!!" (done after "rm -rf *" ?)
	took too many nodoz to work on thesis
8-]	"wow, maan"
8-|	eyes wide with surprise		suspense
: )	leper
:###)	Jimmy Durante
I can send the list of all smileys (13915 bytes) and possibly program sources
to interested persons.

ESCOL '91 HOTEL ACCOMODATIONS
A block of rooms has been reserved for ESCOL '91 at the following hotel
 Inner Harbor Hallmark Hotel (Best Western)
 8 North Howard Street
 Baltimore, MD 21201
 Tel. (301) 539-1188
The following Special Corporate Rates apply to ESCOL '91 participants
- Room with 1 queen size bed (1 or 2 people): $ 75.04 per night
- Room with 2 beds (2 people): $ 87.36 per night
These rates, which are the lowest available in downtown Baltimore,
include all taxes and continental breakfast (Other hotels offered us
similar rates, but with taxes (12%) & breakfast not included). The
hotel is approximately 6 blocks away from the University of Maryland
at Baltimore (UMAB), where the conference will be held (see conference
program), and about 8 blocks from Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Rooms for ESCOL '91 will be held until September 10. Consequently you
should make your reservations as soon as possible. To make your
reservations you can either call:
(301) 539-1188 (Mention: ESCOL '91)
or
(800) 528-1234 (Ask for the Special Corporate Rate)
The 800 number serves all Best Western Hotels in the U.S.A., and the
operator will not recognize ESCOL '91. Therefore you must ask for the
Special Corporate Rate. The 301 number is the actual hotel number,
and the operator will recognize ESCOL '91.
AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION
There is a bus that serves the local airport (Baltimore-Washington
International) and the downtown hotels. It leaves from the BWI every
30 minutes on the hour & the half hour. The bus fare is $ 6.50 one
way & $ 12.00 round trip. If you take the airport bus, ask the driver
to stop at the Days Inn, which is one & a half block away from the
Best Western Hotel, where you will be staying. (Sorry the airport bus
does not directly serve the Best Western Hotel.)
TRAIN & BUS SERVICE
AMTRAK: (800) 872-7245 - BALTIMORE PENN STATION: (301) 291-4260
GREYHOUND DOWNTOWN STATION: 210 West Fayette St., Tel (301) 752-0868
PARKING
Parking for Best Western guests is available at the Arrow Garage on
Baltimore Street, between Howard Street and Park Avenue. Their
all-day rates are: $ 6.00 (weekdays) and $ 4.00 (weekends). There are
other parking garages closer to UMAB that ESCOL participants from the
Baltimore-Washington area may use.
