In a previous article, Braddlee (firstname.lastname@example.org) says:
> I'm looking for *any* connectivity - Internet, Bitnet, Fido, or UUCP to the
> UAE. One of our departments at UNLV is establishing a relationship with
> a new university in Al-Ain, and wants to be able to share e-mail.
> So far, I've struck out on Gulfnet, Internet, and UUCP - I'd seen a vague
> reference that UAE was part of Gulfnet, but it wasn't included in the
> sites in John Quaterman's Matrix News article on Gulfnet last year, and a
> search of Bitnet nodes came up dry.
> There is another University at Abu-Dubai - UAE University. My UNLV
> contact says he thinks there's an Internet connection to them, but UUNET,
> who has registered the AE domain, says they don't know anything about it.
