 ......  This website helps you use the same HNET RELAY services used by hundreds of HNET users all over
 ......  the globe, without having to configure your computer or mainframe to physically connect to the 
 ......  worldwide HNET NJE network.
 ......  
 ......  However, this website only gives you half the fun. Join HNET with your Linux, MVS, VM/370, z/OS,
 ......  z/VM, VMS, Solaris or Windows computer and chat with hundreds of other users and exchange files
 ......  and gossip. It's fun!
 ......  
 ......  WHAT THE HECK IS RELAY?
 ......  =======================
 ......  
 ......  RELAY started in October 2019 when Peter Coughlan released to me software which made it possible
 ......  to connect my 1972 vintage IBM VM/370 mainframe to other mainframes using the IBM NJE protocol.
 ......  From there it grew to hundreds of mainframes and computers connecting to each other for fun
 ......  and peace among the peoples of this planet.
 ......  
 ......  NJE allows for messaging and file transfer, but I wanted to add some services just like it used
 ......  to be with the BITNET academic world-wide network of the 80s. So, I started writing a collection
 ......  of servies under a special HNET node called RELAY. If you landed on this page, you are using RELAY
 ......  right now! RELAY is a relaying service between the HNET NJE network and the world wilde Internet.
 ......  RELAY provides many of the services you can use on this site by getting text-only information from 
 ......  from the web and then sending it to whoever is requesting that information on HNET. 
 ......  
 ......  
 ......  HNET RELAY itself is written in dozens of bash and python scripts (with the occasional Golang
 ......  and Sqlite3 program).Some programs are also written in C for speed (like Queen). Some parts
 ......  of RELAY run on an IBM z114 mainframe. Others on a VAX VMS mainframe. It's all cobbled together!
 ......   
 ......  Eventually, we plan to also make chat and file send/receive available here, along with NJE messages.
 ......  And btw, this webpage is provided by a self-written Go webserver on zLinux on an IBM z114 mainframe,
 ......  under the z/VM 5.4 hypervisor
 ......  
 ......  
 ......  
 ......  IS HNET/BITNET AND RELAY COVID19-COMPATIBLE?
 ......  ============================================
 ......  
 ......  Yes, mostly.
 ......  
 ......  
 ......  THE MUTUAL APPRECIATION SOCIETY
 ......  ==============================
 ......  
 ......  
 ......  HNET and RELAY would not be possible without the contributions of Peter Coughlan, Ivan Warren, Fish,
 ......  Lee, Neale Ferguson, Since Nomine Associates, Bob Polmanter, Rene' Ferland, Michael Richmond, Dan,
 ......  Christian Svensson,  and many others (apologies if I didnt' list you!). For commments, damnations, 
 ......  encouragements contact me by HNET note at moshix at moshix or on FB in the moshix mainframe channel.
 ......  
 ......  You find most of these folks, happily chatting on Discord, go here: https://discord.gg/eyRjj4t
