I wasn't at the IF, so I don't know the details of your setup.
Are you trying to access via dialup (modem) or DSL?
Directly on DSL, or on a LAN (e.g., DSL modem -> Router -> multiple computers)

Can we assume Pine /works/? It just can't send messages onto the Internet
because of problem #1? Or is there anything else wrong with it? ;^)

Is this a touchpad, like the 'mouse' interface on some laptops?
Or more like a tablet that you use a stylus on (e.g., a Wacom pad?)
I'd be surprised if it's your mouse, as that would be a pretty hard
thing to miss at an IF, unless time was running out and you had to pack
up with whatever was done, without testing. :^)
Or, I guess maybe you could have had an external mouse (or maybe you have
a laptop that has BOTH a little nubby mouse control thing, AND a touchpad...
I've seen those recelt.y)

Ah, yes, sounding more like a laptop. :^) I'm not sure how external laptop
drives are handled (under Linux _or_ Windows). :^(
Is it possible to get your files onto your Windows paritition, and then
use Windows to upload them once they're there? (Unfortunately, I don't
think Windows can read Linux partitions... however, Linux can read and
write Windows parititions, although I've heard lots of dire warnings about
writing to NTFS, which I guess might be used on WinNT, Win2K and WinXP..right?)
That could be an interim solution, until you can get network and/or the
external floppy drive working.
