I heard an alarm going off in this building, and since no one 
seemed to be around I decided to investigate it. I found the 
alarm and tried to shut it off but it wouldn't turn off with 
the on/off switch. So then I unplugged it, but the alarm kept 
sounding. Then I noticed a compartment for backup batter power 
and removed the batteries, but the darned alarm kept sounding.
 
This is crazy, I thought to myself. Then I found a secret panel 
with an emergency on/off switch and turned that off, but the 
alarm still kept sounding. I was mad now, so I smashed the 
thing with a hammer.
 
The alarm still kept sounding!
 
When I finally woke up to the sound of my own alarm clock I'd 
overslept by more than an hour. That's kind of like the guy 
that dreamt he ate a five pound marshmallow only to find his 
pillow half devoured when he woke up.

   ---- Rare Lenny Bruce Performances on DVD ---

After viewing this amazing overview of Lenny Bruce’s life,
one will understand his tremendous impact on stand up
comedy. Through rare interviews, performances on the Steve
Allen Show and nightclub routines, you will experience the
brilliance, tragedy and ultimately the soul of this very
special comedian turned social critic. He was reviled,
loved, harassed and in the end misunderstood by virtually
all. But this DVD brings us closer to understanding Lenny
Bruce the man. Plus you can save $10.00 on this hard-to-
find DVD. It's now just $19.99. Visit:

WEBMASTER TIP - Zippety Linky Do
 
Note: In code examples I add a period after each left arrow
bracket so the code can be viewed in all e-mail programs. If 
you copy and paste, be sure to remove the periods or it won't 
work.
 
Question: I made a zip file for people to download but I don't 
know how to link to it so they can grab it. Help?
 
Simon Says: It's so easy many newer webmasters overlook the 
obvious. You link to other files types the same way you link 
to an HTML page, using the anchor tag. Example:
 
<.a href="BunchaStuff.zip">Download a Buncha Stuff<./a>
 
Instead of linking to "SomePage.html" you just link to the 
name of your file, BunchaStuff.zip in this example, and in-
clude the proper extension. This works for fonts, PDF files, 
and every other kind of file as far as I know.
 
With a Zip file, the user will be prompted whether to save it 
or open it; with a PDF file, Acrobat Reader will open if it's 
installed; with executable files the user will be prompted 
whether to save it or run it, and so on.
 
See, wasn't that easy?

COMPUTER TIPS - Real Time
 
My computer does something funny that no other computer I've 
ever owned has done. It gains time. About 10 minutes every 
month or so. My wall clock loses time. As they say, a man with 
two watches never knows the correct time.
 
When you're online, you can find the correct and exact time 
for any of the North American time zones simply by clicking 
your state on this US map:
 
http://www.time.gov/
 
This is the official government time.
 
I didn't forget you if you don't live in the United States. 
You can download Atomic TimeSync for free from Analog X and 
have your computer sync up automatically once the program is 
set up. If course, if you live in the US you can download it 
too.

Until next week, ponder these words of Albert Gyorgyi: 
Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and 
thinking what nobody has thought.
 
Have an interesting day, Simon
