To use the links in this newsletter, you must be connected to the Internet. PC Eudora users: to see this and other html mail properly you must check the box "Use Microsoft's Viewer" in the "Viewing Mail" options.
If you used FusionOne within the time limit, please send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us your FusionOne user name. We will then contact them and try to talk them into giving each of you the 500 Mb. We will point out that we gave them free publicity in the newsletter, and WebSkulker has taken a fair amount of time in the last few days working with their support staff to correct bugs. We will beg for a favor, and they might grant it if there aren't too many people involved.
Note that this site is in beta test so they aren't enforcing space limits anyway. At the moment, you probably could store 500 Mb and get away with it. The question is how much space they will give you for free when they officially open for business.
WebSkulker has seen programs throughout the years that claim to somehow optimize memory usage of Windows, or claim to double the effective amount of memory so Windows will act like it has more RAM than it actually does. Older DOS programs that made this promise really did work, but that was because DOS didn't have any decent memory manager. The memory manager in Windows, on the other hand, is highly sophisticated and WebSkulker doubts that some little software company can do a better job than Microsoft.
This site makes it so easy to try out the concept that you jr. skulkers might run their program to see if it does any good. Go to the above page and click on the Optimize Now button. This will check whether you are using Internet Explorer or Netscape. If IE, then it will automatically load and run an activex control that will show a moving graph of memory usage and a couple of statistics. Push the Optimize Now button in this program and it will do its work and update the statistics.
If you are using Netscape, the site will ask you do download and install a plug-in program that does the same job.
WebSkulker has run across colorful charts on office walls showing the allocation of the radio spectrum in the U.S. and he always wanted one, but never figured out where and how to order it. Nowadays, of course, the answer to all such questions is "the Internet" and sure enough, such charts are available online. The first link above is text-based with several levels of links to get more and more details about a frequency range.
The second link is an Acrobat version of the wall chart that WebSkulker remembers seeing. Click on that link and if you have the Acrobat Reader installed, you will get the chart in a window on the right and an index in a window on the left. Click on a frequency range to get a blowup of that section of the chart.
The third link is a picture of a chart that has very little information, but it is useful to look at to remind yourself that the radio spectrum is merely one range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared, visible light, ultra violet, X-ray, Gamma rays, and Cosmic rays are identical to radio, just different frequency ranges.
Jr. Skulker Frank Wilsey suggested this site which contains a series of intriguing optical illusions. Ms. Cat is disappointed because several of the pictures contain animals, but no cats.
A preacher wanted to raise money for his church, and being told there was a fortune in horse racing, he decided to purchase a horse and enter it in the races. However, at the local auction, the going price for horses was so high that the preacher settled on a donkey instead. The preacher figured, since he bought the animal, he might as well race it. To his great surprise, the donkey did quite well and came in third place. The next day, the racing sheets carried this headline:
