Biographies:
From: "Alan Withington" <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Thank you for your Email and for your first Net Letter. I
started my career with Trans Canada Airlines in March of
1958 at LHR in Maintenance working on "Connies", and then
graduating to DC 8's. In March 1965 the family and I
emigrated to Canada, and I transferred to Vancouver. Here I
worked on all the Air Canada fleet as a Certified Electronic
Technician eventually retiring in January of 1992.
Bye for now Al Withington

SURVEY FINDS PC USAGE IN HOMES HAS DROPPED
Although PC ownership has increased significantly, usage of
home computers has dropped, reports a survey by Arbitron
NewMedia. The survey found that PC ownership has grown from
29 percent in 1995 to 54 percent in 1999, yet the percentage
of people that say they regularly use their machine has
fallen from 90 percent to 53 percent in the same time
period. Similarly, the number of PC owners with
subscriptions to ISPs has risen four-fold from 1995 to 1999,
while only two-thirds of these subscribers actually use the
Internet. One factor in these findings is the survey's
exclusion of children under the age of 16, who are often the
most active users. Another factor is a change in buyers'
motives: previously, consumers bought PCs because they were
interested in experimenting with the emerging technology,
while now, consumers buy computers because the prices are
low and they are easy to obtain. (Wall Street Journal
06/21/99)

Smilies.
More sent in by John Hayes, of conversations with a travel
agency. A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it
was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and
got into Chicago at 8:33am. I tried to explain that Michigan
was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she could not understand
the concept of time zones. Finally I told her the plane went
very fast, and she bought that!

I just got off the phone with a man who asked, "How do I
know which plane to get on?" I asked him what exactly he
meant, which he replied, "I was told my flight number is
823, but none of these damn planes have numbers on them."

That's it for this time, please we need your input, send
comments and email addresses of any others who may be
interested to Vesta with a copy to Terry.
