I have received several letters from people having difficulty connecting to the BioMOO.
When you telnet to it be sure to enter it as:
telnet bioinformatics.weizmann.ac.il 8888
the "8888" is very important and will get you directly to BioMOO.
Otherwise, use a gopher to middle east, and then, Israeli gophers.
Then look for Weizmann.
