Enter a surname (last name) into the form on this page and you'll get a map of the United States showing the distribution of people with this surname within the 50 United States. The source of this data is the 1850 Census, 1880 Census, 1920 Census, and 1990's phone books, and there is a drop-down menu where you choose which one to search. You can also choose "All years" and get an animation showing the changes from one period to the next.
The first site is home for the WindowBlinds shareware program that lets you put skins on regular Windows programs. Go to the site and look at the examples, and you will understand immediately. You can change the style of title bars, buttons, toolbars and much more. It gives you total control over your graphical user interface. Many users have contributed the skins they developed to a library that you are free to use; they even have several to make PC's look like Macs!
The second link above is to a Microsoft article describing the concept of skins and giving links to several other products that have skins.
Are you old enough to remember the famous "Watergate tapes" from the Nixon presidency? The public has been able to listen to them at the National Archives in Washington D.C. and WebSkulker did that once many years ago. Many of these tapes are now available online at the History and Politics Out Loud site. Either Browse by Speaker and look at the Nixon section, or Search by Speaker and enter "Nixon".
Choose a recording and you will get a page giving some information about it. Click on "Listen" to hear it in RealAudio; click on View Transcript to read instead of listening. The site has an amazing feature: as you are listening to a recording, the RealPlayer will display that section of the transcript.
"HPOL is a collection of invaluable audio materials -- some available for the first time on this website -- capturing significant political and historical events and personalities of the twentieth century.
