Hi Michael,
 
Your problem is that you've got the name of the file wrong.  The file
is FILMSKUL FAQ (as in Frequently Asked Questions).  So, to nab it,
send the following in an e-mail message to [log in to unmask]  Please
note that this command goest to LISTSERV, not to SCREEN-L:
 
GET FILMSKUL FAQ
 
Please note that there is no period in the file name either--as in
MS-DOS filenames.
 
Here's some more, general info on the FILELIST.  Hope this clears it
up.
 
SCREEN-L FILELIST is an archive of text files related to film and TV.
E-mail users may retrieve these files through normal e-mail channels
without using File Transfer Protocol (FTP).  To nab a file, send mail to
[log in to unmask] (Internet) and put the following command in
the very first line of the message:
 
GET <filename> <filetype>
 
Replace "<filename> <filetype>" with the name and type of the file you
want.  In the example above, the name is FILMREG and the type is TXT.
So, the command would be:
 
GET FILMREG TXT
 
Note:  there is no period between the filename and filetype as there is in
MS or PC DOS.
 
When listserv receives that command it will send the file to your
regular mail address.
 
There are a few other files on SCREEN-L FILELIST as well as files containing
ALL of the messages ever posted on SCREEN-L.  Here's a quick list of
the current holdings.  If you have a file pertaining to film/TV studies
that you'd like to make available via SCREEN-L FILELIST, contact
Jeremy Butler ([log in to unmask]) for more information.
 
Film/TV submissions are welcome!

          It's silly to go on pretending that under the skin
          we are all brothers.  The truth is more likely that
          under the skin we are all cannibals, assassins,
          traitors, liars and hypocrites.
