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.
