    all in one This would also be a good opportunity to move all of my web pages to one hosting site because as it was I had started my website at SafeAccess but later added additional pages at Register com when I got my own domain name These two sets of pages were linked together but I had been wishing they all were under the same domain I had recently taken over the leadership of Desert Hills Christian Homeschoolers and I noticed that their hosting account was with GoDaddy com Upon researching that company I discovered that it had been founded by Bob Parsons formerly the president of Parsons Technology which specialized in MS DOS based financial and Bible software back in the 1980 s Does anyone else besides me remember MoneyCounts or QuickVerse I was glad to learn that Bob Parsons was still around and even more pleased to see that GoDaddy s headquarters was located nearby in Scottsdale AZ So a hosting account at GoDaddy was a given and as for a content filtered ISP after comparing different ones I decided to sign up with Christian Net However it would take a week to transfer my domain name over and get the new website and e mail going In the meantime I thought I d still be able to get my e mails through SafeAccess until I had a chance to give everyone my new e mail address From then on I would have my own e mail domain so that I d never have to change e mail addresses again if I ever had to change ISP s like I was doing now But there apparently were some technical difficulties when SafeAccess switched over I couldn t send or receive e mails and a friend of mine told me that all of the e mails she sent to me and anyone else on SafeAccess were bouncing When I called their support department they didn t even have a record of my account So once again I was essentially without e mail for a week As soon as my domain transfer went through I was anxious to get my new e mail accounts going But since everything I was trying to work with was new to me computer operating system e mail web hosting and ISP I had trouble configuring my e mail settings correctly and getting everything in working order Finally with the help of my husband I got my e mail at GoDaddy up and running on May 14 I breathed a sigh of relief thinking that now I could get back to normal Problem 3 Hijackers Before I actually had a chance to start doing anything however my husband was surfing the web that afternoon and noticed that the computer was acting sluggish and the pages he wanted to visit weren t loading Rich thought that was odd since we had just purchased the top of the line fastest computer that Dell offered It was built with a dual hard drive for intense 3 D gaming serious video editing and extreme multitasking so certainly it should be able to perform simple tasks quickly He checked the stats and saw that the CPU was steadily running at 50 capacity when no programs were on And upon taking closer notice while trying to get on the internet he saw that when he typed in a particular URL the browser would be redirected to a completely different unfamiliar address Rich immediately got on the phone with tech support and came to find out that the symptoms indicated that our brand new 3 week old computer had been hijacked A hacker had forcibly changed our internet settings and installed a small web server on our computer for who knows what purpose and making us unable to control our own machine For all intents and purposes our 4 000 Dell Dimension XPS GEN 4 which we purchased and paid for with hard earned money had been converted into a source of revenue for some fly by night hacker It was infuriating to think that this joker had invaded our nice new computer making it useless to us and shortening its operating life by causing the CPU to heat up by running constantly Of course the scary part is not knowing who it was or how he got into our computer in the first place I m glad that my husband discovered what was happening right away but he was so angry and eager to take care of the problem that he acted hastily and didn t give me a chance to save any of my stuff Even though I hadn t used my new computer for long the things I did have on there were the most important things that I was doing first I had gotten my 600 unread e mails whittled down to 300 and was working on several articles All of those were lost and now I have no way to get in touch with people who had contacted me who I hadn t replied to yet Please write again if you can and I ll try to write back this time The tech support guy at first had my husband restore the computer to an earlier date but that didn t get rid of the problem This meant that our brand new factory installed fully loaded system would have to be reformatted and reinstalled by us But we were missing one of the necessary CD s to do that so we had to wait several days to get it in the mail Following that we had deja vu all over again reinstalling the ISP setup software reconfiguring the e mail settings etc It was so frustrating because we d get one going but the other one wouldn t work and vice versa So another whole week went by before I had e mail which was such a waste of time considering that I had just finally

    their possessions in defense of their beliefs Just watch Gods and Generals or Gettysburg and you will know what I mean I ve never lived in a southern state and I don t have any Confederate ancestors but as a student of history I feel that any attempt to denigrate the proud history of the South should be viewed as an insult to the heritage of our country as a whole Yes it s unfortunate that it took the Civil War to accomplish what our nation is today but that makes it all the more important to understand the real reasons for the war Ask most individuals and they will simply say it was a fight over slavery but there was so much more to it than that That s why people need to be educated about both sides in order to protect against distortions misrepresentations or even deliberate alteration by historical revisionists Thus I am very grateful for the historical information available to us on the Civil War and the time and money spent to maintain battle sites historical buildings and landmarks for future generations One such example is the Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Georgia Stone Mountain is a giant granite dome located just outside of Atlanta Georgia The elevation at its summit is 1 683 feet above sea level and 825 feet above the surrounding plateau Perhaps more than its geology Stone Mountain is well known for the enormous bas relief on its north face the largest low relief sculpture in the world The carving depicts three Confederate heroes of the Civil War President Jefferson Davis General Robert E Lee and Thomas J Stonewall Jackson The three men are on horseback appearing to ride in a group from right to left across the mountainside The lower parts of the horses bodies merge into the mountainside at the foot of the carving The three riders are shown bare headed and holding their hats to their chests The carving is actually much larger than it appears from a distance For example workers could easily stand inside the horse s mouth The entire carved surface measures three acres across which is larger than a football field The carving of the three men towers 400 feet above the ground measures 90 by 190 feet and is recessed into a hollowed out area 42 feet into the mountain The deepest point of the carving itself is at Lee s elbow which extends 12 feet into the mountain s surface A sculpture of this size had never been attempted before In 1912 the carving existed only in the imagination of Mrs C Helen Plane charter member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy UDC The Venable family owners of the mountain deeded the north face of the mountain to the UDC in 1916 The UDC was given 12 years to complete a sizable Civil War monument In 1915 Sculptor Gutzon Borglum was approached by the UDC with a project for sculpting a
