Ready" PC or Mac. The software indicated
below is all available in essentially identical versions for
Macintosh and Windows 3.1/95/NT Computers. || Unix workstations can also be
used if available. The use of 14.4k or faster modems to connect a computer at home is
an acceptable for viewing the conference.
| A WWW browser. We recommend
Netscape Navigator version 3.01, suitably
configured to read papers and posters and to browse through
e-mail discussions. This software is available for all the
major platforms. If you acquired these instructions by means other
than using Netscape itself, you should try to establish whether your
computing support service has a copy.
|| Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 is an alternative
to Netscape, although not all of the Chime features may work correctly.
|We recommend Chemscape Chime
as a Netscape or MS Explorer plug-in. Place this in the "plug-ins" folder and start
the Browser. No further configuration is needed.
||As an alternative to Chime, you can use
RasMol-PC/RasMac Version 2.6 for
rotatable molecular images. You will need to suitably configure
Netscape to recognise molecular coordinates.
Netscape can be used to send and receive E-mail. You will have to
configure your e-mail address and other options from the Options/Mail
and News Preferences pull-down menu.
||If you are not using
Netscape, you will need an alternative e-mail program such as
Eudora Lite. The Microsoft
Internet Explorer uses this for its e-mail interface.
