of the most exciting things that is happening today is the emergence
of on-line internet communities, places where people with similar
backgrounds and interests can gather electronically to exchange
information, experiences, and ideas . . . and your 44
Website pages comprise such a community! . .
As a '44, you need to take only ONE action to join
our community . . SEND your full name and E-mail address to the Webmaster at
. . firstname.lastname@example.org
How do you navigate the site?
pretty simple . . Click on any of the multi-colored "sections" shown
above or below the main title and a colored deck of "links" will
drop down. These comprise some of the website's 103 broad subject
areas. Clicking on any one of these drop down "links" will
take you directly to the page of that subject area.
reading through a page, click on either the small "TOP" or "HOME" button
at the bottom right of each page and you'll be returned
to the TOP of the section you're reading OR to our HOME Page at which you can use the Nav Bar once again to move to still
another new subject area. Certain pages will carry underlined
links and/or a "See" link found just opposite the byliner's
signature. These are suggested links that will carry you to the
cited underlined areas . . and that's all there is to it.
quick tip: If you're on a page and wish to move through its particular "section" or
subject area, you'll find a green "N" bullet for NEXT
at the bottom right or along the right hand side of all pages.
Click on that "N" and you'll be taken quickly to the
note, more than 80 of the subject areas listed will introduce
you to one of your '44 Class Officers, an active class
member, or a specific University faculty or staff member. This
volunteer person's photo appears at the top of the page and his
or her short biographical sketch is shown at the bottom center
of the page . . This is our electronic way of saying "Howdy!" and
acquainting you first hand with many of your Class Officers. If
there's a horizontal bar underneath the person's photo, this means
that he or she has provided us with a sound bite. Click onto that
bar and hear a 1- to 2-minute message from that person.
that our opening ding-a-ling animated Library Tower opening page
has a BUTTON and the words, "Skip Intro" at the top
right of the page . . They've been added so that the next time
you check in to the '44 website you can go directly to the HOME
PAGE without listening to all of the Cornell bells and whistles
completed, the website can truly be called a '44 time capsule
that covers virtually all of our Class' activities of yesterday
and today . . Many of the photographs and copy that appear in
our Class of '44 Memorial Room - the Reunion photos, the
team and individual photos, our major donors, etc. - will be reproduced
in our website over time and will enable the several hundred of
our classmates who have not been able to return to campus to view
the Memorial Room's 300-odd presentations.
keep checking into the '44 website for your Class Officers
and your Webmaster promise to provide many more pages, facts,
and photos that will be of direct interest to you.
A "password" will be necessary
large part of our
Class of '44 Website is made available
to all viewers, '44
or not. Please understand, however, that certain website pages
will be limited to active, duespaying members
of the Class of '44. These will be secure, password-protected
pages that will assure
the privacy of our classmates. For example, the pages that
provide a listing of the e-mail addresses of your classmates
carry "personal" information and
Cornell has suggested
that '44 protect the privacy of the listed individuals by limiting
access to these areas to those who have been provided with
a '44 "password." Our "Class
Roster" carrying the home addresses of our class members
and the "Snowbirds" second home listings will also
be limited to our
duespaying Class members as will be our "Class
Officer" address list. Sorry, but we live in a probing
world and that's the way
they wish to have it.
do you access the "password"? . . As a '44 duespayer,
please send your full name and e-mail address to email@example.com . . '44's Webmaster will return the working "password" to
you that's needed to access these few restricted pages.
It's a simple password and one you're not likely
to forget. Being of the "senior moment"generation,
if it so happens that you forget the password, just ding the '44
Webmaster again at the website link cited in the second paragraph
- the full website is planned to cover some 550-600 linked
pages by 2007 and have more than 3,500+ photos and illustrations.
We remind you again that our website is a time capsule, one
that you and your progeny will be able to enjoy in the years
