PS. Apologies for some of the screwed-up links to the Tripod and AOL web sites -- they got banned for violating T-o-S. So the Academy will have to edit the web pages...whenever. There are other missing links too. I have not been diligent lately, and we have been under attack by the IRS, the Bush Administration, and the Christian Morality folks.

* They had a problem back then, too, with the year 2000, even though they were counting the years backward; the only difference is that they not only didn't have computers but didn't know what year they were living in. If you would like to read more about Gomer the Greek, please click here.

We are tired of all this Browser war between Netscape and Microsoft, and get upset with people who design web pages 1200 wide instead of 800. All of our web pages are now designed for MS Explorer at STANDARD 600 x 800 size. Netscape, whom we used to favor, has screwed up in that things that should be centered are not, tables and frames that shouldn't have borders do, many javascripts don't work, sizing of fonts, layouts, etc. is inconsistent, and style sheet protocols are incompatible. If you use another web browser, Opera is the best and they try to keep up with both standards as much as possible. Users should not have to spend hours downloading upgrades to keep up with the Jones's, and there will be no Flash plug-in stuff on our pages -- but it is hard to resist using new tricks, so this site will occasionally be updated with things that can be done on Microsoft browser versions that other browsers cannot keep up with. Bill Gates might be a monopolistic shithead predator, but has the best stuff going.
