At the risk of being accused of sending personal messages I will continue
with the following because you all will appreciate my ignorance.  I had
tried entering Frank's address at the top of the Web browser, in the
address area, also and it did not work.  Guess why?  I didn't know I should
hit "return" to put it into effect.  I was "pushing" all sorts of other
buttons, like "search," which put me back where I was or into search engine
choices, etc.  Today I hit "return" and - voila - there was Frank's art
work.  You can tell I don't use the WWW very much.  The obvious is not
always obvious.

Does this story qualify for the silliness category?  I, too, enjoy the
jokes, but I do get annoyed at obviously personal messages on the list.
Often, however, it is a mistake on the part of the sender, which I well
understand.  I've made the same error.

Thanks for the explanation of why search engines do not have new web
addresses right away.  Interesting and makes sense.

Incidentally, I cannot download Netscape.  Apparently Microsoft Explorer
prevents downloading Netscape for some people, according to Netscape's help
page.  [What a surprise!  Good old Bill Gates.]  The Netscape download is
supposed to be free. I contacted Netscape by e-mail but have received no
response.  Incidentally, Netscape charges quite a bit for help.  I want to
use Netscape and trash Explorer, if only because Explorer sabotages in this
manner.  This is on a Power Mac 7300/180.

Is my only solution to buy a copy of Netscape, either in the store or on
the WWW?  I bet Explorer will not let me buy Netscape over the WWW using
Explorer.  It is worth a try.
