Wow! I'm impressed! You are quick on the response to my e-mail. :-)
I found out about your site from Tourbus. Our school web page has only been up for about two months. We are just learning but have unlimited access to internet on about 30 computers. Thanks for taking a peek at it. Your product is definitely an inspiration to all and I am sharing the URL with others. And especially thanks for the news about CyberSurfari '98.
It has been a busy school year (aren't they all?) and I had not came across that event. We will definitely be registering. I am sure our students will enjoy the competition. Maybe Montana will make its mark??

WHY IS MONA LISA SMILING? ------------------------- Steve Feld, Computer Graphics Instructor at John F. Kennedy High School writes: > I would like to suggest a worthy site to share with you, which was > created by my high school students using 15 year old computers. Our > site compares the theory of Dr. Lilian Schwartz and Rina de Firenze, > author of Mystery of the Mona Lisa. As head coach of a ThinkQuest > team I can say that there are many interactive learning opportunities > for students to discover da Vinci and listen to his music, create > multilingual musical postcards in one of sixteen languages, take an > online quiz or create one. > Our award winning site is part of the Getty Museum's Digital > Experience, Encarta, and the Global SchoolNet Foundation.

You'll need a PC with a microphone and speakers to place the call, but the recipient needs only a regular telephone. This special rate is only good until Friday October 16th.
