Norm, that's very cool. I remember this tool now from the WebTV days. Too bad you can only see the text, and not the graphics. It's just not the same.

Now that UNIX is the core of all new Macintoshes, I've been (re)learning the Bourne Shell, C programming, and lex & yacc. I can also TELNET from the terminal window right into other computers, so it's very interesting.

Hiya Brian,

Too bad, WebTV cannot read the format of your newsletter downloads, but I can see the SBMUG page...

Brian edited the two most recent copies of the MOUSE TIMES newsletter, available for download at this web page:

    <http://www.sbmug.org/MouseTimes/mtindex.html>

These are created on PageMaker, by doing a paste-up, just like the newspapers. My innovation on the first one was to make a centerfold (Sorry, Macintosh-related) on pages 6-7, so the material is presented in one large graphic.

In the second newsletter, I went nuts with shaded boxes. There is general-purpose internet stuff in the Feb-March newsletter which is not limited to Macs.

On the first one, I made the mistake of using Times 9 point font, which is too small (got to zoom in with the Acrobat Reader program), the 10 point font on the second one was much better.
