Just to let all of you know - I am sneaky 8-) I know you were - I saw you
You made me look because the counter went up - but no new page!
This is gonna be way, way, way cool.
I hope so!
I have some minor questions/suggestions.
1) Check those features/dates/etc I posted for the Rainbow with somebody who
actually knows. I have not done so, and they were just from my often-flaky
memory. Some real Rainbow expert should please chime in here and set me
straight on whatever I missed.
I know, This has be a slight thorn for me. I certainly don't know about
EVERY computer EVER made. This is something that will take time. But facts
don't change and eventually everything will get ironed out.
2) There actually does exist a Rainbow web site. Under
construction at the
moment, its url is: http://b61984.student.cwru.edu/rainbow.htm
Can users just enter a link like that instead of a link to an image? Or can
you add a field for that kind of link?
That is what the Support area is about. If you know how to do HTML,
you can actually enter the URL yourself. I do not magically make the
new pages appear yet (security BS - you know) so I can check these things
I think from the CoCo entry now available, that I may have made the size
and amount of data *a leetle too small*. That's what the testing is all
about. Show me where I went wrong and how I can fix it.
3) How does info get edited? Is it locked once entered
net.vandalism or well-intentioned but incorrect "corrections")? Maybe each
computer web page can be changed only by emailing you, and is put under the
responsibility of a single volunteer to make sure what's there is correct? Or
maybe just put in an edit facility so anybody who so desires can add info?
Ya I been kinda worried about that too. I really don't want to do it and
I'm PRETTY sure Bill doesn't (correct me if I'm wrong Bill 8-) I don't
like the idea that - just anybody - could change it. They could just add
a new page anyway 8-) and then email from those *offended* 8-) could be
used to straighten it out.
In any case, *thanks* for setting this up. I am
really looking forward
to browsing this site.
Time will tell!
