Blogs and copyright infringement

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20060606.htm Harlan, As someone who has fought the good fight for copyright protection, I thought you might find this of interest.

Hitchcock anthologies

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20051120.htm Harlan, You wrote that the Hitchcock anthologies were ghost-edited by the late Gordon R. Dickson. I have to disagree- at least with regard to the two anthologies Steve Barber cited. Both Alfred Hitchcock's Ghostly Gallery and Alfred Hitchcocks Monster Museum w...

Thank you

Harlan,

Thank you for your generous offer to assist me with the typewriter problem via phone. I never imagined that you'd ask me to call you, and the fact that you did so is much appreciated. And more than a little cool.

Thanks again.

Rick

Problem solved

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20050926.htm Thanks to all who offered suggestions, but as is usually the case, soon after I posted my request for help, I figured out how to correct the problems. And, as I suspected, the solutions were right in front of me. As I said, there's no "tab set" key, but there ...

Seeking typewriter assistance

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20050926.htm Since Harlan uses an Olympia typewriter, I'm hoping he might he might know how to resolve my two typewriter problems.

"You dirty rat..."

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20050524.htm Of course Cagney never said, "you dirty rat... you killed my brother", but few people probably know that a similar phrase is part of the test to ensure all the alphabetical keys on a typewriter are working properly. That's right. Contrary to popular rumor, one...

Andre Norton

Name: Rick K. Source: unca20050524.htm I just recently learned that Andre Norton died. That's sad. I devoured many of her books in junior high and high school; and a few years ago, when I discovered two books in her "Time Traders" series I'd not previously known about at a library book sale, I boug...

Granted, these people of the variant speech pattern are only in the book for a brief period, and none of them give long monologues; but even so, I wasn't th...

Just a guy who found himself getting involved in other people's problems. He either wandered into the situation, or peopl...
