Chuck, Chuck, Chuck:
A couple of questions (and, recall that it was you
who got personal, so do not whine about my questions. I note that you do not
choose to give your name but hide behind a cute ?Coffeecan? label).

We all get personal at times.
That's why we are personalities. I don't have a clue about Coffecan, but
I'll answer those questions, so you can make profiles of people who disagree
with your postings time to time...

1. Do you have your G.E.D.?

I don't have any GED (couldn't tell you about
Cofeecan) but I do have a hot dog stand. Am I less worthy now? (Exigo a me
non ut optimis par sim sed ut malis melior)

2. Do you have someone to help you with doing your numbers?

Not someone but something. I guess is called calculator.
And you know what? It's pretty accurate.

3. Do you have someone to help you with the big words?

I do not use big words, not yet, but I may as soon as
someone invent wordulator.

4. Are you still running your linear amplifier?

In fact, I do, since it covers covers 80, 40, 20, 15 and
10 meter amateur bands. Pretty useful, aye?

5. Have you sent in your contribution to help sustain this Web Site or
are you still freeloading?

I'm still a "freeloader", but I've spend few thousands at
Panamint Springs Resort so far. Maybe Jerry can tunnel some of the money
into this web site. But maybe you are in need of contribution, as your web site
is hosted by tripod. It may help to register domain as well. As Seneca once
said: "Qui dedit benificium taceat; narret qui accepit".

6. Do you miss driving the turnip truck?


7. And, finally, is anyone with an I.Q. higher than his or her age
shouted off this site? It is the ?BIG? words or ?Big Concepts? that really anger

I have to skip this one. My IQ doesn't

8. Check out my Web Site.

I did.

 Get someone to show you how to do it.

Would you be so nice? Please. My HTML is so bad I did all
my sites in Perl.

What will really set you on fire is that I have hundreds and hundreds of
photos that I have taken of Death Valley and am in the process of developing
another Web Site that will show the world, in beautiful full-color, full-screen
what you only appear to talk about.

Memento mori...

You may want to start a campaign to boycott my sites.

Guys at Tripod would be very happy about it. All the
traffic you get is pushing server to the limits...

 Also, burn a few books while you are at it (no, I?m not referring to
comic books).

For whose benefit would that
