||We will meet F2F again on the
21st of November in 418 Main at 5:45pm. Be sure
to be up on all assignments and on the reading.
Please have your responses to all new assignments
completed by the due dates!
NB: I enjoyed last night's class, with the
exception of a notable absence or two. Make every
effort to attend the F2F sessions regardless of
how much online time you are contributing. See
you on the 21st.
||Congratulations John Zampitella!
John is the first to uncover the secrete word!
||HINT FOR THE HIDDEN WORD
You can find the Father of Sociology on the
||If you have not scheduled a
meeting with me please do so ASAP! Our next F2F
will be on Tuesday Nov. 5th in M418 at 5:45. At
that time I want everybody to have selected the
projects they will be doing for a grade and to
give me an update on where they are with their
work. Also I plan to move all communication to
the Web page by that date so get familiar with it
soon. I am still looking for those who have found
the hidden hot word on one of the pages. Let me
know when you find it. ALSO: Please use the feedback page to
respond to the Page. We will use your comments to
improve the site. NB: This is an assignment! See
||I would like to meet with each of
you individually this week to see where you are
with things and how best to proceed during the
later half of the semester. I have some times
listed below. Please schedule about 15 minutes
during one of the sessions and e-mail me. No
class F2F this week but I will see you

||The tabs already should work also
for people who use AOL or Internet Explorer, in a
limited scope also for people with Lynx.
hidden word's location is revealed since I need
to put it away from the page where it was. In
11/21 it's gonna be deleted. Until then you can
see what you missed by going to the links and seeing
what the cursor does when you point at the empty
space below the first paragraph. A link, right?
Was it so difficult? As it was stated below, the
winner is John
Zampitella. I don't know if there's a reward
waiting for him at the course instructor. I have
a little reward for him, though: John, if you see
a pic or two on the 'net you'd like to have on your
homepage, send me the URL of the page where
it was and I'll put it onto your site. It's
silly, but at least something :-)
||No major updates. But check the links-- we've got
some life here! I'm also still working on the
scripts. I've never thought they'd be such a
pain. Anyway, the work has not stopped. If you
ARE curious, you can have a sneak peak at this virtual
study room, which is currently under
development. Please don't distribute this links
as it's going to evolve!
||We went multimedial, since there
is a welcome
sound file in the About folder. (WCU
folks - all the computers with CD-Rom have a
sound card. All you have to do is to bring your
earphones and plug them into appropriate hole at
the bottom of the computer). Also please note
that the name of the Assignments folder
definitively changed into 'Work to do', but this
scary a*** word still can be used ;-) I'm working
intensively on the board scripts, expect big
stuff soon! You can see an EXCLUSIVE preview of a
post in the
Assignment board. It's still missing some
features, though. Some further minor changes were
||Since today you'll see a
confirmation note looking like this if your
input is successful. So you don't have to worry
anymore whether you are getting through. Just a
reminder - all the input is sent to Daniel Franc,
who will handle it; not to dr.
||There will be this little logo in the upper left
corner of every page to enable people who don't
see the "folders" to open the SOC491
properly. Bad news: the scripts don't work yet.
Good news: we're now two for their debugging ;-)
Also some minor bug fixes were done today.
||Some 'English problems' are fixed
thanks to MaryAnne.
||A very detailed Curriculum
Vitae of the course instructor was added to
the About folder .
