    Thanks, Adam. You had just given me a whole field full of info to enhance my web site. :)

    For screen cap images, trailers and other info related to Star Trek, Trekpulse is an excellent starting point. Check them out.

    I find the following site very useful (it is my computer's start up page):

    http://www.rocketscientists.ca/


    From here, I am one click away from several real-world sources of tools and information for anybody interested in the aerospace sciences.

    Aaaahhh! It never fails- any time I have a question I can get the answer on the BBS. :D :D :D

    What about sites for D/L templates? I want to start a site as an electronic business card for displaying my writing (newspaper articles I've written, press releases, brochures, course outlines, ect) and the ones I've found don't really go with what I'm looking for. :confused:
