Please! To me, whatever html linking codes are, they sound like strange

ogres living under this internet bridge, and this billy goat fears being

devoured or caught in some Web page. For those of us who travel this

super-highway in a horse and buggy, this doesn't sound fun.

It is true that the ogres do strange things at times. Early this morning

on my home-rigged winsock/mosaic (since my office computer is too feeble

to run mosaic at all), I was merrily browsing through pictures in Italy

when a box suddenly popped onto my screen saying "Alert! Unexpected Heap!"

and I found myself transported back to my own little computer world of

Starkville, Mississippi. At least the heap didn't devour me or trap me

forever. If any of you can explain to me what creature an unexpected heap

is, I'd appreciate it.
