I have had a Web site online continuously since the 1980s when we had to use Notepad to write the html code and test it in a Unix browser. Later FrontPage came along and then everyone was going online. My original use of the page was primarily for my students; I was one of the first teachers in NYC to be using the Web for homework that was submitted using forms, and creating and posting PowerPoint presentations of the classwork for absentees. I ultimately created a complete "distance," or "independent learning experience" system in the school. The first, I was told, in the city. I never got much credit for any of the work I did, but I did get to teach one less class and leave early.

I remember going online using a Wyse terminal and the school's intercom system to dial out. Four science teachers crowded around the little green screen as we browsed the Unix based Web.

The Flash Video, "Sohn.Org" has been on the site since near the beginning, and I have a hard time parting with it. I tried to open it in Adobe Flash CS3 Professional, and it told me it could not read the file. I did get it into the Flash Encoder, but it said it couldn't encode the file because it was damaged. Now I do remember that I made that Flash video in a program that just might have anteceded Adobe owning Flash (of course, I cannot remember the name of the program, it was quite a while ago). I was having a problem with the .swf in IE 10, but after I reinstalled IE 10, the problem is no more. Everything old is new again.

The background is a picture I shot while flying in USAF pilot training, or UPT. There are a lot more of these and videos on the 69-03 site that is linked above. Well, the site tree-menu is in the upper left, go have a look, or don't.
