- In case you get lost on the Internet
will tell you where you are. She even talks to you to
calm you down.
- Laura was born on
Edgar Allan Poe's
B-day (January 19, 1809, Boston, Mass.).
(This link says that many of Poe's stories take place in
I was born on
Ludwig van Beethoven's B-day
(December 16, 1770, Bonn, Germany).

- 50 years ago today (6 August 1945 at 8:15 AM) the
first atomic bomb was dropped on
the city of
- Let us pray today for peace in our world.
- I'm constructing Project HANK2000. HANK stands for
"Handy And Nice Knowledge". (That's the best I could
come up with at the moment.)
It is under construction , so be careful at the
Project HANK2000 Home Page.

- Today I helped my niece, Rachel, build a house a few
miles away at
Hollywood 1332 . She's 10 years old. I told her
to think up things to add to her house. I will
help her next week make some improvements.
If anything happened in the year 1332 AD or 1332 BC,
let me know
and I will pass that along to her. Thanks!
- I also figured out how to install
MOSAIC 2.0.0 BETA FINAL
(note: do a "Load To Disk" on this link)
on my computer at work. I loaded this 3 or 4 times before I
figured out that the setup.exe was not moving all the files
into directory WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WIN32S.
Then I loaded it to
That's one less thing to worry about.

- Hurricane Erin hit Pensacola, Florida USA today with 94 MPH winds.
For the latest information check the
National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.
- You will notice that I have added a symbol for the word
"new" in French (nouveau).
The English word "Yes" is "oui" in French
and "no" is "non". That's your French lesson for today.
There will be a test tomorrow, so you better study!
Check out the newsgroup
soc.culture.french . They are discussing
the current issues in France, like nuclear testing.
Half of the discussion is in French, so get out your
- I'm thinking about making templates for the rest of
you to use local HTML documentation in your offices.
I showed the
HTML Documentation Project to 2 more people outside
my work group and they were impressed.
I would create a ZIP file that you would download and
load to your hard drive then UNZIP it. Then you just
edit the HTML statements and fill in the names of people and
projects. It's just a lot of typing once
you have the structure in place. Then test it all out.
I think it's very easy to accomplish.

- Since this is
I changed the date to day-month-year
format instead of month-day-year.
Check out the
Eiffel Tower sometime.
- "One thing I ask of the Lord this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life."
I usually read something from the Bible each day.
- Congratulations goes to 2 of my neighbors on
Paris Street that have been named the
Cool Homestead of the Day . They are
Pinky (I wonder who helped her with the counter?) and
Dennis . Way to go!
Also check out the
COOL Cat Nikki on my street. I heard a "Meow" or two
this morning in my e-mail box.
- All the houses are taken on my street now. That was quick!
It was like the Gold Rush!
I'll try to get out this weekend and see how everyone is doing
and welcome the new neighbors.
- I have to watch what I write about because my coworkers
are dropping in to my house now to see how the place looks.
Today we were trying to give the
HTML Documentation Project a name.
Some suggestions were "DIRT" (Documented Integrated Radical
Technology), "HANK" (Handy Archive something something),
"DERF" (our boss' name spelled backwards), etc. I will keep
you posted. If you have suggestions,
send them my way. We have to give this project
a name, because we don't know what to call it now.
- A news item in the USA today is
Hurricane Erin that hit Florida.

- The high in Paris was 88 F (31 C) for this date.
The low was 70 (21 C). (If you can believe the Omaha
- It's time to turn all the pages on the calendars, so
I rebuilt my house. How do you like the original art work
of my house? I put in new wallpaper for those of you
that can see backgrounds.
- I need to do research on
I found this in the
newsgroup last week. This involved writing a 'C' program, so
I don't know if it will be of value to you.
- Today we had a staff meeting and my boss said "thanks"
HTML documentation project
that I did on the LAN. That was very nice .
I typed until my hands hurt in making it
and it's only just begun.
The meeting was a video teleconference call with
about 10 people in Omaha, Nebraska USA and
2 people in Bellevue, Washington USA.
We could see them on the television screen in the
front of the room and they could see us from where they
where. We even watched a video tape of a presentation
about our company for 45 minutes. It just about put
me to sleep.
- I received another disk in the mail today from
America Online . It's version 2.5 for Windows.
I tried America Online a few months ago and decided it
was too expensive. I use
NETCOM now. With these free disks in the mail
I don't have to worry about buying blank disks anymore.
That is so kind of them. I read they passed the 3 million
mark in customers recently.
- Someday I'd like to see
Antarctica . It looks awesome.
