Teaching a Visual Rhetoric in Freshman Composition Classes: "Were they applying current marketplace practices or mimicking the rules of the academy? There was no generalization, no carry-over of skills from one genre to another. If we say that what we are really teaching our students is critical analysis and written communication skills, then we fail if we don't teach them to generalize their writing for their specified audience. Electronic writing operates under a different set of rules, offers a new kind of literacy. We must teach our students to both understand and transcend the traditional form, to mold it for the electronic space, thus creating a variant which considers the electronic audience addressed, and his or her expectations as reader/ learner."

Hoopty Rides: Is the Complete New Yorker Spyware?: "Copy Issues to Local Hard Drive Issues Folder - This is a more elegant solution. Oddly, although the Complete New Yorker is locked up in twenty different ways, it relies on a public domain database called SQLite. There is an Issues table in the database that has the complete list of every issue along with corresponding DVD number. Each issue is assigned a number 1 through 8 plus 9 for the harddrive. If you copy every djvu issue file to the local issues directory and change the issues table so that every issue points to the local hard drive (9), then you can scream through the issues. It is fast like the blazes. So elegant and beautiful. I downloaded a shareware SQL database manager off CNet to make the changes, but individuals smarter than I could do it with the free command line SQLite."

Rules of Card Games: Chinkway: "The Origin of CHINKWAY

Having invented a number of games, some of which have been published, I considered that the ultimate challenge for any self-styled 'games inventor' was to invent a good game that could be played with normal playing cards (as opposed to special cards). Because our group has favourite cardgames for 3, 4 and 6 players I decided that my aim should be a game specifically for 5 players."
