  1. I see that the font for blogspot leaves a lot to be desired. I found that by cut/paste to notepad, this
    really does show a buffalo nickel.

    ASCII art was something I first saw
    on a mainframe printout over 15 years ago. it's now more automated; some of the first art was probably hand produced.

    What a variety in your blog !
    Love,
    Dad

  2. I'm sorry that the nickel doesn't seem to be happening. Hmm. The blogger runs with a funny mix of html and wysiwyg, and I only today learned of my ability to edit the style portion of the template. Dad, you're not using a home-made browser are you, or Netscape 1.0? My former CSci colleagues would frown at my poor form, publishing something without first trying it in the 25 most popular browsers...

  3. I can't believe you didnt' test this in IE5.5 - 7 as well as Firefox and Safari.

    The original post was still in the RSS feed. Hilarious.
