Memos in the Requests for Comments (RFC) document series contain technical and organizational notes about the Internet.
They cover many aspects of computer networking, including protocols, procedures, programs, and concepts, as well as
meeting notes, opinions, and sometimes humor.
RFCs are numbered (roughly) consecutively, and these numbers provide a single unique label space for all RFCs.
RFCs are published on-line through a number of repositories, and here is an online index of RFCs.

NETWORK INFORMATION CENTER SCHEDULE FOR NETWORK USERS
The Network Information Center has planned to provide service for
network users on a regular basis Monday through Friday.
This service will begin on Monday, October 4, 1971.
The daily schedule for network users will be:
(times are Pacific Daylight / Pacific Standard Time)
0500 to 1200 system available
except Tuesday, when hours are 0800 to 1200
1200 to 1300 system not available
1300 to 1800 system available
1800 to 2200 system available on an irregular basis
2200 to 0500 system not available
This schedule is temporary and subject to change.
The system is available on an irregular basis on weekends.
Those periods marked as available on an irregular basis are generally
devoted to system development. Any user may be asked to log off on
As soon as the user's Telnet connection is established to the NIC,
the system herald will be printed, followed immediately by a brief
(possibly null) message to network users. This message will contain
any items that are of particular interest to network users.
In order to log in:
use your site ident as the user name
the password is ARPA
use an account number consisting of site ident-your last name
for example, if we receive the string
log ucla-nmc arpa ucla-postel
the user will be logged in as John Postel from UCLA
After logging in, the (possibly null) system message common to all
logins will be printed.
If you experience any trouble getting into the NIC, call us via the
telephone numbers listed below. If the number is not listed as a
direct dial, you must contact your operator and ask for the appro-
priate Zenith or Enterprise number. If the operator is unfamiliar
with the use of Enterprise or Zenith numbers, ask to speak to the
Dick Watson for administrative problems.
John Melvin vor NCP or Telnet problems.
Marily Auerbach or Dirk van Nouhuys for TNLS problems.
If NIC personnel do not answer, a local answering service will
take the call. Give the name of the person to whom your question
is directed and your question or comment. We will contact the
answering service every morning and reply as soon as possible.
