Stuart's Middle Name

Stuart, I didn't know your middle name was David. But I do now. I found it on the internet.

Now that AOL has finally started to raise the curtain on its user-friendly internet interface I have taken my first tentative steps into the deeper currents of cyberspace. I soon found a review of a book on dreaming by Carlos Castenada (WHEW! If you think MY dreamlife is strange...), technical details about a new beaming gizmo for my Newton, a list of call numbers for books of fiction by American authors currently checked in at the Wellington Public Library (Wellington, New Zealand, that is), a mailing list of Czech Tolkien fans, AND the profile of a certain English professor at OSU Marion.

So far the capabilities are pretty limited. Mostly I can find out ABOUT zillions of databases but I can't actually get at the data. I am still on the very edge of this brave new world.

Are any of you other Archipelagoans venturing into the internet?
