* register for an account on the BNC server (free for twenty days
 unlimited usage)

* download the SARA client software needed to talk to this server
 (also free: available for Windows3.x or 95 only)

Library (who run the server); thanks are also due to its ingenious
developers (Scotty Logan and Tony Dodd).

The address of BNC Online is
