bulletInternet for the Layman -- This is Larry's first major attempt at getting a WWW page up from scratch. Recently a series of articles were published in a weekly paper. The articles attracted Larry's attention, because they assumed very little technical expertise when talking about computers, and lead the reader through an introduction to the Information Superhighway. The articles are not meant to be reproduced here, in fact what this started out to be was just a text file of various notes from this series including some WWW references. If you are going to list the WWW references, you ultimately want to view them. With a download of Microsoft Word's WWW page markup extension, this text file developed into the page you are about to see. The weekly paper happened to be the Australian Catholic Weekly. If the source offends you, then don't look ! But if you want links to some of the coolest WWW pages, then be my guest. Acknowledgments on the page.
bulletOther "Cool" (but old) links and miscellaneous information obtained from a variety of sources to make remembering and accessing them easier.
