We do not yet have a phone line in the classroom so I end up using my
machines at home to do a lot of work on the web. I have constructed my home
machines from assorted cards, drives, etc. one is a sleepy 486 which runs
OS2 and the other is a Pentium running windows 95. On these machines, I
run email exchanges for the kids, collect materials from the web for offline
surfing using Teleport Pro (Download whole sites) and Unmozify (mine the
Netscape Cache directory after surfing) on the Windows95 machine and after
moving the web sites and useful lecture materials onto a MAC formatted Zip
using Conversion Plus, I bring the materials in to the classroom. I have a
personal color scanner and assorted software which I use for lecture
preparation at home in the evenings and weekends. In addition to Paintshop
Pro, PhotoStacker, Photo Morph, F.D. Dabbler, LView Pro, Gif Construction
Kit, and Wordkinx (OCR software). For the work I do on the Web for the
District and for the High School I use WSFtp, Netscape 3, and Hotdog Pro. I
use Eudora and HyperTerminal for email.
Hope this helps.
