Epilogue

The Stargate project terminated for business reasons when WTBS changed their uplink carrier to a company with ideas for a competing technology.

The UUCP project continued until 1988 when Rick Adams of UUNET offered to take on its domain registration work at a lower cost.

Eventually, the cost of Internet technology became low enough that UUCP was replaced with TCP/IP, SMTP, and NNTP, and everyone had access to ARPANET-class Internet service.

The UUCP Project was continued by Eric Ziegast at www.uucp.org. It was finally shut down in June, 2000
