The Internet is still cool. I sent my little sister a computer a couple weeks ago. She lives in Austin, Texas. She's 26, never went to college, and has been a waitress for most of the time she's been out of high school. So she's basically learning everything from scratch. She managed to put everything together, get online, and send me an email. Very cool. Her having a window to a bigger world is pretty exciting. I'm anxious for her to get her own site and have an outlet for her significant creative talents. She's funny, too.

Update: From an email from my mom: "So excited that Al is finally 'on line'. Thanks tons and tons and tons!"
