Forum informationIf you are interested in joining an independent internet based discussion platform created and run by SADiE users covering the SADiE product family and related industry topics and technologies then you can subscribe the procedure below.
Step 1) Go to http://webbd.glennmeadows.com:8080/~sadie, select 'New User', read the displayed instructions then complete and submit the form. You will need a valid e-mail address to complete this.
Step 2) Shortly after, you will receive an e-mail message containing your user name, as entered in step 1, and a temporary password which you can change later if you wish. This message also contains a short précis of the facilities available on the WebBoard.
Step 3) Return to webbd.nls.net/~SADiE and login using the information received in step 2. You are now logged onto the discussion forum.
The SADiE WebBoard is separated into specific topic areas called conferences. Although the WebBoard provides an interface for retrieving and submitting messages, most conferences also have an associated mailing list which allows you to receive and submit messages via e-mail. (This enables you to participate without requiring access to a web browser)
Step 4) If you wish to receive and submit messages to the conferences via e-mail then simply do the following:
- Log on to the WebBoard
- Go to the 'More' menu
- Select 'Mailing Lists'
- Select the mailing lists that you wish to subscribe to via e-mail
The WebBoard has many advantages over a traditional majordomo mailing list, not least the ability to perform text searches of postings and host online discussions, and we applaud the efforts of Glenn Meadows who created and maintains the SADiE WebBoard.
- The SADiE WebBoard is open to all. If you are not yet a SADiE user you are still welcome to post messages to the conferences should you wish to contact other SADiE users. To send comments directly to SADiE, please contact SADiE.
