To everyone who caught the typos in my notice about Richard Lowe's award
(misspelling "Richard" and the double "http" in the URL, thanks. Here is the
corrected entry:

Internet-Tips excellent Site Award
Richard Lowe awarded me this in January of 2001. While visiting his site I
realized I'd never posted it and that it had been "lost" when my prior PC
"crashed". Richard was kind enough to send it to me again to post. Richard
has a great site. Let me encourage everyone to check it out, and also to
subscribe to his newsletters and forums.

I've been busy over the last 4 months preparing some major updates to my U-2
pages. You've seen some already. Today I've updated the U-2 page itself with
lots more information. If you are a U-2 info junkie, you'll appreciate that.
And be sure to check out the ephemerae link about "wheels". Wild!

__________1. QUOTATIONS

__________2. EPHeMeRAe

every day interesting “stuff” crosses my desk. Some isn't important enough
to put on my site in any permanent way. But it is interesting enough to put
there somehow, quickly, at least for a while.

These are ephemerae: collections of temporary, transitory tidbits. 

Today's ephemerae include information on the Hollywood/Technology battle
(I'm on the technology side), information about an amorous dolphin, and a
wheel you can live in!

Wired News (04.Jun.2002), "ReplayTV Won't Quit, Won't Quit": 
Sonicblue is pressing forward to make their ReplyTV recording device. The
entertainment industry doesn't like it.

Fortune.com (27.May.2002), "This Is War – Should the computer industry
protect Hollywood from digital theft?":
This overview article has some questionable "facts". For example, it claims
that "piracy" is responsible for the decline in music sales; that is clearly
questionable. Several surveys indicate that people who sample MP3 are more
likely to buy the CD. And other surveys suggest that a reason for the
decline in music sales is that the price reductions promised when the CD was
introduced never happened. But, overall it presents an interesting overview
of the topic.

ABCNews.com (04.Jun.2002), "Flipper Tries to Get Fresh: Swimmers Warned That
Dolphin Off British Coast Is eager to Mate": 
Seems that a sexually frustrated dolphin is trying to lure unwary humans
(normally females) out to sea to mate with them.

Wired (18.Feb.2002), "Try Living in the Wheel World":
Seems some Viennese architect firm has designed large "hamster wheels" you
can live in. They rotate to change function. Some news isn't really news. It
is just fun. This is just fun.

__________3. NEW/CHANGED ON MY SITe

The U-2:
My brother was a U-2 pilot in the U. S. Air Force. Then he left to become a
commercial pilot for United Airlines. Now he has returned to the Air Force
to again fly the U-2. This is a page about his plane. This page had major
additions today, 04.Jun, including several dozen additional links and links
to U-2 books.

__________4. AWARDS

Learning Fountain
The Learning Fountain is not so much an award as it is a statement of the
way you do business. I, therefore, hope you will not hide the emblem in an
awards page.
I have also included the learning fountain award on my Front Door
and also on my Memberships – Participation page.
