Congrats! I awoke this morning wondering how your were doing. I thought I might check out your website for updates. Before I could, my mom called me to say that Debbie got a letter in CT with Pics, yesterday! Again, congrats! No guilt if I do not have a letter in the mail. But, regardless, can't wait to see pictures. Jeanne

It was so nice running into you tonight. I'm sorry if I was too chatty. My friend Liz and I had just come from a big dinner with plenty of sangria. I went straight to your book page(after a lengthy conversation with my friend Dave about Billie Holliday vs Sarah Vaughn. Have you ever read Lady Sings the Blues? It begins with the wonderful line "Mom and Pop were just a couple of kids when they had me. He was 18, she was 16 and I was three.") Your book page is full of wonderful things - I've always loved Laurie Colwin and Two Girls Fat and Thin is one of my favorites. So hard and good, that book. I'm glad that you liked River Midnight, it's a lovely thing and no one knows about it. Thanks for the mention of the store, that was very sweet. I am curious about what the vegetarian manifesto novel is. I do hope that you like Kissing in Manhattan. I have a difficult time handsellng it. It's odd - sex and power and hate and love. But very good, I think. Pick up Travels with My Aunt - Graham Greene -sometime if you need a good laugh. Just read it recently and fell in love with it. Anyway, such a pleasure to see you both (if only I had you on staff, I'm sure that we could clear the hurdles of the economy tht we've been jumping). Til next time - Michael

Hi, I am actually a friend of Michael Griesdorf's and have unfortunately lost touch with him. I have no phone number where to reach him and have been trying by all means to get a hold of him. I finally went on the internet and found this website. Should you have his phone number where I could reach him, I would really appreciate if you could email me back, or at least tell him he can reach me here in New York at (212) 447-9644. This may me a strange request, but I would love to speak to him again! Thanks for your help, Karine Perez

Was searching for Adele Wiseman's daughter, Tamara Stone, and your site popped up. Was wondering if she is indeed Adele's daughter because if she is we're related and I'd like to try to find her. Could you let me know if this could be the case? Thanx so much. Great pix, btw! :o}

Ah, I think I can safely paraphrase Dr. Samuel Johnson when I say "If a person is tired of Samuel-Cottingham.com, he or she is tired of life." I enjoyed the wedding photos, and felt again the sharp pangs of regret that I couldn't be there. Is there perhaps something you need that I could get for you as a much-belated present? I also got a good laugh out of "Sisko's guide to filosuffy" - he must be quite a dog. Anyway, write and let me know how you're doing. Love to all y'all, Dave

http://www.gofree.co.uk/home/smh/mp3/ The display is a standard 1/4 VGA LCD from EIO (picture). I needed to use a VGA to NTSC converter to get output on my LCD (which had an NTSC composite input). I got this from Maplin, they call it a "VGA to PAL gamer" and it cost about 30 uk pounds. It can actually output PAL or NTSC (picture). The LCD kit requires power at 3 voltages: 350 volts AC (for the backlight), +5v (logic) and -8 volts (LCD control). I found the -5v from the PSU to be sufficient to power it, although I'll probably get around to introducing a -8v regulator to do it properly. I got the 350 volts AC from an inverter from Jameco (part number #142252). There's some more info on the strife I had getting the LCD to work here. 10/5/98 Jerry Biehler e-mailed the following regarding the use of the LCD with a Macintosh: Hi. I saw your page on the $99 LCD display. I noticed there was a question about connecting the display to a computer and the response was to hook it to an NTSC out connection, which he had never heard of on a desktop pc. Many models of Macintosh (840AV, PM7600, PM8500, PM8600, ect.) have standard 640*480 NTSC out which can be used simultaniously with the standard video, allowing (With adequate vram) Seperate but connected desktops, video mirroring, or you can boot with just an NTSC monitor and use your Mac that way. This display would make a great portable monitor for someones PowerMac.

Sisko replies: Oops. I've passed your message on to Alex, and she tells me that she already called you, that June 30 was a little late for me to pass this on to her given that you left it more than a month before, and that maybe I leave something to be desired as an answering machine. I responded by eating her favourite pair of canary yellow shoes — the ones with the delicious wedge heel. Mmm, mmm, good!

Dear Sisko, Happy Easter! I hope the Easter bunny came to your house. We are enjoying a warm spring day which gives us a chance to sit on our front porch and bark at passersby. The lamb is roasting in the oven and we are looking forward to getting some decent table scraps for a change. Sure beats linguine with chick pea sauce! Love, Sobey and Shaker

Sisko replies: I made out like a bandit! I snatched a chunk of chocolate egg when nobody was watching and wolfed down — get this — half a pound of butter! But that was nothing compared to the barbeque these guys held a few weeks later. Oh, man... those sausages tasted just as good coming up as they did going down. But hey, what am I telling this to you two for? You're living in mooch heaven!

Loved your web page. So nice to see you after quite a while and to see Rob. Interesting that I already have a disc of Mike's Lanark On Line. Tried to see Sisko, but picture never came up. We're all well here, altho, pun intended Well ran dry today - no water, had to melt sno for a while till plumber came. Great wedding attire - but where are Rob's options. Tons of love, Cynthia.

I had no idea my daughter, Tobin Belzer, was afraid of dogs. She had a wonderful relations with Angie her childhood dog and Joey her grandfathers dog who came to visit with us often. It is amazing the things you learn on the internet. Ask her how she feels about cats.
