An INTERNET Resource Guide for Competitive Forensics

The following resources were compiled mainly by the Arnie Madsen, with the assistance of books and on-line guides to the INTERNET. In addition, Seth Northrop and Matt Roskoski both contributed listings to this guide, and deserve acknowledgement here.
Note that this guide is more heavily weighted to debate than to individual events. A few gopher and other sites are indicated for retrieval of literary material, however, the breadth of topics covered in the public address events makes a resource guide for those events problematic.
The author has used many, though not all, of the resources listed on the following pages. All of the addresses and gopher menus in this guide were accurate within the last year (1993/1994). However, addresses, menus, and access privileges are constantly changing. If a reader notices that an address or command is no longer correct, the author would appreciate hearing about it. Readers that know of additional sources not in this resource guide are similarly asked to forward those ideas to the author for inclusion in future listings:
