The best reward of maintaining a web site is getting e-mail from friends and strangers who stop by and like what you've done. So why not make it easy for them to mail you? Put a mail-back form on your page!
Installing the mail-back form is as simple as using the random number generator. Just follow these steps:
cp /user/mpg/public_html/cgi-bin/mailsub.cgi .Make sure you include the final period and separate it from the word 'cgi' by a space!
chmod 755 mailsub.cgi
<a href="http://aurora.engr.latech.edu:80/~mpg/mailback.cgi"> Mail me! </a>Be sure to change /~mpg/mailback.cgi to the place where your copy of the program is, but you _need_ to leave the aurora.engr.latech.edu:80 part as-is.
Now, people can send you mail without leaving their browser!
