Tweedledee and Treacle Reference
I believe that everyone should read the works of Lewis Carroll, so I've included
Gopher links to
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,
Through the Looking Glass
The Hunting of the Snark.
Hopefully, someone (maybe even you) will render this stuff into HyperText and
scan in the original illustrations some day. Alas, I fear that I don't have
the time to undertake such a project at present (what with this one still
trundling along so merrily).
Actually, I did get bored enough to do one chapter (``Tweedledum and
Tweedledee'' from Through the Looking Glass, predictably), and I must say
it wasn't that bad. The artwork took a grand total of about half an hour to
scan in (using Ye Olde Logiteche ScanMan) and fiddle with (contrastiwise and
brilligancy, mostly [ouch]). Once I pulled in the text (using Gopher), it
only took me another half hour or so to format it in HyperText, inline the
images and link it in
Those of you with slow Internet links may not want to inspect it, since it
does have seven inline images and is a total of about 220K in size.
For Lewis Carroll fans (that is, people who like the idea of Lewis Carroll
spinning in his grave like a turbine) that live in the Garden State (``My
goodness, Agatha, there certainly are a lot of seagulls over the petunia patch
today''), I offer
which was dug up by Pope John Paul George Ringo I, resident informavore and
general knowledge index (who, natch, has a
on his happy little Linux box).
