Subject: A Cardinal Sin
Don't be makin' heroes outta guys who fly dangerously with their
board. You wanna fly like that, you do it solo. Maybe in one of them
one-seaters. Yeah, that's the ticket. If'n yer talkin' about those ultralights
lifting one of them offa the groun' is dangerous flying.
I've got 9 letters on the Web so far. It's a bit time consuming.
I get your letter
in GNN Messenger, copy & paste it into WP6.1 strip the hard returns off
line one by one, translate the copy in WP Internet Publisher to HTML, export
that to the Netscape Browser to make it a genuine HTML document and save
it on the hard disk, later using Netscape I surf the net for Web pages that
embellish various words and phrases in the letter. I copy the URL addresses
these Web pages and then back in WP Internet publisher I create the
hypertext links and save them. When the page is finished I open NaviPress
call up the document from the hard drive, sign on to the Internet via GNN,
save the page to our LFM file. Then I pull up the letter index page and
the new letter and hypertext link to it and resave it to LFM. Then I write
reply to your letter and send it via e-mail. Now I go through the same process
with my reply to get it on the Web.
I'd say each page takes between 3 and 5 hours not including any
or dawdling. I come home after a full day at the station, spend about 4-5
doing this and there you have it. I haven't done any airplane flying Buzzz
no golfing Arnold, in fact I haven't even been getting enough time to sleep
Here's where our Web pages stand as of tonight. The Home page,
Index, the first nine letters, and 90 Under Construction pages are now open
the pubic. The other 67 letters are in about stage two of the seven stage
- they are residing in WP Internet Publisher waiting for a little final editing,
research and tagging of hyperlinks to related Web pages, and electronic
transfer to LFM. My social life and relaxation is at work.
OK LISSEN UP! Here's what you can do in this process. Since you
have a Pentium or even the POWERMAC 6300 you can't really do this
publishing or even surf the WWW for related pages to use for hyperlinks BUT
. . .you can take this URL address:
and spread it around. E-mail it to everyone you think might want
something. Flap your lips around, write some old fashioned letters. Maybe
some of the old LT readers or ??? Tell your Mom, she might like the read
probably has some spread it around ideas too.
I loved your latest (177). Those Cardinals are beautiful handling
They've got a lot more aileron surface on them and a bit higher cruising
than their sister Cessnas. They will do a whole roll before you've even realized
you were upside down. I don't know how those wings stay on without any wing
struts but if they're still on after the way it sounds like Nate's son sins
then I guess they're safe.
I hear what you're saying about the Kid's Mother. Get the PI, get
Commandos . . . (hey wait a minute, don't they have some of them Freedom
Malitia up there in Montana? You've been up there 4 or 5 months and you
haven't said a word yet about the Freedom Fighters.) . . . tell some of those
guys what you told me and they'll go get those chilluns for you.
I still love reading your stuff man. That crack about the unformatted
disk was beautiful dude, I almost cried.
Write slower, I'm taking a day off for New Years and going to a
bar in Gallup.
This is Letter 76.
I'm only 67 letters behind.
