Tell a friend ...
Well, mateys, a number o' ye have suggested we provide ye with one o'them
newfangled "e-card" things so's ya can tell yer mates about International
Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Truth be told, we've neither the know-how nor the time ta come up with a
fancy-schmancy automated e-card. Ye can find one o' them at
Amazon.com, if ye've a mind fer that sort o' thing.
But in the meantime, here's a bit of a card ye can use if ye're jest a wee
bit computer savvy (unlike Cap'n Slappy, who thinks it's all done by magic).
Put yer mouse on the graphic below.
If ye be usin' a PC, hold down th' right mouse button
If ye be usin a Mac, hold down th' only button ye've got.
From th' menu that pops up, select the closest thing to
"Save image as ..."
Save the graphic ("postcard.gif") somewhere
on yer own computer where ye can find it again.
Now ye can send it to yer friends as a small (30K) e-mail
attachment so's they can know about TLAPD, too.
A suggestion or two that'll keep ye out o' trouble:
- Don't copy the message t' everybody in yer mailbox. That'll
trigger spam filters and virus warnings, and yer messag'll get bounced back
t'ye. Save it fer yer special friends, an' send it to 'em one by one.
- Include a descriptive subject line an' a personal message that
makes it clear this is a real e-mail from someone they know, not the latest
worm from one o' them scurvy scourges o' the Digital Seas.
