[MAILBAG] -2cnd edition

[MAJOR LINKS] Open this page up wide!

April 12,1996 AC

The labyrinth grows, the mailbag flows. What makes a site alive? Same as any organism --Growth, Reproduction, Irritability, Metabolism & Evolution. GRIME.

Once again: check out the Mailbag Site if you don't have time to look at anything else. This week writers URL's & email addresses are hotlinked so you can fire back replies.

As usual, the site is salted with stashes of obscure & unlisted items. Sometimes they change locations. Sometimes they had names but lost them. I'm beginning to lose track of where they are myself. Arf.

With this fourth edition, I realize this is a full time job. This week I'm beginning the process of formatting everything to show reasonably well on webcrawler® & other non-Netscape® browsers. Hence the ubiquitous periods suddenly appearing in the left margin between lines I want double spaced. Just think of them as fly specks and get used to them. It's such a dull and time consuming job, it'll take me weeks, but it's well begun. Poets need line breaks.
