September 11, 2001
This page highlights my website content related to the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and at least one other target (speculated to be the White House or the Capital).
It discusses my reactions to 9/11 and shows some of the splash pages I've used on the anniversary of 9/11.
In addition, it links to other patriotic, military and veteran information on my site.
This page also shows some of the webrings to which I belong related to this topic. My website has several subsections for webrings, including an extensive help section for WebRing.com. I have information about all of these at the bottom of this page.
My Reactions to 9-11
To the families, relatives and friends of everyone killed or injured by the terrorist attacks, I extend my most sincere and heartfelt sympathies and condolences. On the day of the tragedy, I wrote some thoughts.
My brother was in the Air Force as a U-2 pilot. He left the Air Force and became a commercial pilot for United Airlines. In December 2001, he returned to the Air Force to again be a U-2 pilot in support of our country. This page, and my participation in these webrings, is, in part, dedicated to him.
If you explore my site a bit and get to know me, you will see that pride in America and support for the men and women in our military is a part of me and a part of this website.
After you check out these particular topics, you might like to explore the rest of my site (and get to know me better). I recommend that you start with my "Home" Page. From there the "Front Door" will provide some highlights of the site, information on my navigation scheme and a bevy of graphics for the organizations I belong to and support. Then "Stuff About Me" will provide more info about me than you could possibly want. (I've included all these links in the link list below.)
From there, I'd suggest just exploring the various parts of the site as suits your interests.
NB: From 11.Sep.2001 through 11.Sep.2002 I had the words about the terrorist attack on a different "splash" page on my site. Since I took it down, several people wrote to say that they had heard about it and to ask where they could see it. Click here to see the general splash page. Click here to see the special splash page that I used to "black out" my site on 11.Sep.2002.

What Is a WebRing.com System Webring?
The WebRing.com system is the largest and most prominent brand of webring system. It is the direct descendent of the Original WebRing created by Sage Weil.
First owned by Starseed, then by Geocities, it was acquired by Yahoo!. In September 2000, Yahoo! assimilated the Original WebRing and replaced it with Yahoo! WebRing. Then on 12.Oct.2001, Yahoo! spun off the system to create the WebRing.com system as an independent webring host.
For an extensive list of resources, including more history of the concept of webrings and lots more information about the WebRing.com system, see my section on the WebRing.com system.
Where Are the Navbars?
They are at the bottom of the page. They take a bit longer to load. They are at the bottom to permit the rest of the page to load before it stops for that process.
Why Are Some Navbar Stacks So Wide?
If a ringmaster opts for the default, system generated navbar, then the WebRing.com system makes each navbar wide enough to hold the name of the webring, plus the WebRing.com User ID of the ringmaster (if the ringmaster wants it) plus a picture (if the ringmaster specified one). And, the system sets the navbar so it will be as wide as widest navbar in the stack.
If a ringmaster creates custom html, the ringmaster can control this behavior more closely. It is one of the advantages of creating custom html.
Where Are James S. Huggins' Webrings?
This page shows webrings that I belong to. I have a special page that shows the webrings that I own. As a visitor, I'd like to invite you to take a look at that page and to join whatever webrings make sense for your site.
Are These All the Navbars?
Goodness no! I have a wazillion navbars because I belong to a wazillion webrings. Some are in the WebRing.com system. Some are in other systems. I have a convenient index of my webring memberships: just click here to open that page in a new window.
How Can I Find Out More About Webrings?
This page is part of an extensive resource section for information about webrings in general and the WebRing.com system in particular. It also features information about the Yahoo! WebRing system, the predecessor of WebRing.com as well as all of the webrings I own and belong to. Just click here to open the home page of that section in a new window. I've also included information about the individual subsections near the bottom of this page.

WebRing.com Changes Big Time --- It was October 2001 that WebRing.com came into existence following the end of Yahoo! Webring. Now, 5 years later, WebRing.com is changing again. Moving from primarily a free service to primarily a paid service, the system is undergoing massive change. Stay tuned.
Ringlink Activity --- While Ringlink has not released a new version since Version 3.2 on 21.Feb.2005, the system seems to be getting a lot of activity. Many people are discovering this great webring system and moving their webrings here. If you don't know about Ringlink, definitely check out this great webring system. I personally recommend it.
WoW --- The World of Webrings features the World of Webrings discussion list. It offers a forum for both webring owners (ringmasters) and webring members to discuss the latest hot topics about all webrings, including WebRing.com, Ringlink, Alt-Webring, RingSurf, Bravenet and others. If you belong to any webring in any webring service, you should join this list.
RingSurf Passes 3 Year Anniversary --- It was 3 years ago, on 16.Aug.2003 when the WoW list list noted that RingSurf's domain name registration had changed. Then the new owner came forward. A RingSurf Feature List was developed and debated. Then, on Thanksgiving day, 27.Nov.2003 the new owner posted on the WoW list that the new RingSurf is up! If you haven't checked it out lately, see what has happened in the last three years.
Article About Webrings --- Check out this excellent Salon.com article about the history of Yahoo! and WebRing.com: The Strange Saga of Yahoo and Webring . For some, it will bring back memories. For others, it will explain the history. Now, I wonder if they will update it to talk about the latest WebRing.com changes.
Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
Webrings: General Information
This subsection includes general information about webrings. Webrings can be hosted by a variety of different services. This section deals with the overall concepts and issues, not with any one particular "brand" of webring.
The WebRing.com System
This subsection includes specific information about the WebRing.com system.
While not the only webring system on the net, it is the best known and the most used. I own many webrings in this system and belong to many webrings in this system. (I also own and belong to many webrings in other systems as well.) Click here or on the graphic.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
