... Hi, Jay, Welcome to the REBOL list. I can't help with the two Amiga specific questions (#1 and #3). Regarding whois: Ralph's book, "REBOL for Dummies" is a great way to hit the ground running with REBOL. Unfortunately Network Solutions changed their whois interface soon after the book was released (if I recall correctly). I do not recall if they have a URL that works with the whois query. However, you will have more luck with the following: print read whois://[abooks--com--internic--net]/cgi/whois Hope that helps. --Scott Jones
