Note: The following are included for historical interest only; in particular, the ZTN routing is no longer current. We have also omitted pages giving links to groups and sites that were important during the life of ZTN, but which now are either defunct or which have moved over to TCP/IP-compliant servers, and which can easily be reached with the usual search engines, or from the Groups or People pages on this site. We would be glad to include in the following list other material of historical or activist interest with regard to ZTN.
