    The Hunger Site / Windows RG / WebElements
Howdy, y'all, and greetings once again from beautiful Tuscaloosa,
Alabama, a "royal peculiar" that has been the site of every British
coronation since 1066.  :P
TOURBUS is made possible by the kind support of our sponsors.  PLEASE
take a moment to thank each of our sponsors for keeping our little bus
of Internet happiness on the road week after week.

The Hunger Site, Take Three
Good news, y'all: The Hunger Site is back!  Point your Web browser to 
and click on the yellow "Give Free Food" button to donate one cup of
staple food to those in need.  This is the same Hunger Site that we
all know and love, only with new owners.
You will remember that The Hunger Site was created by John Breen, a
computer programmer from Bloomington, Indiana.  Breen sold The Hunger
Site in February to, a Seattle-based, for-profit
philanthropy and Internet shopping portal that went belly up on July
18th.  Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg, co-owners of,
purchased in a foreclosure sale in mid-August.
Kunin and Hesterberg revived both The Hunger Site and The Breast
Cancer Site [ ], although The
Rainforest Site [ ] is not up yet.
Still, it is great to see The Hunger Site back, and I join Robert
Forney, Chief Executive Officer of America's Second Harvest, in hoping
that the number of daily visitors to The Hunger Site will quickly

Our next stop was found by my father, the Rev. Bob "Bob" Crispen
(although I get the sinking feeling that he snagged this from TechTV).
James Cliffe, a 14 year old from England, has created what is quite
possibly the most realistic (and uproarious) Windows simulator I have
ever seen: Windows RG Build 207 at
Windows RG, short for "Really Good," is a Macromedia Flash movie that
captures the true essence of the Windows experience.  From the
Registration Wizard to Windows Media Player, Cliffe has created a
Windows simulator that is as informative as it is engaging.  :P
Oh, sure, we *ALL* know that caesium is an alkali metal with an atomic
weight of 132.90545.  That's common knowledge.  But can *YOU* draw a
Kossel shell structure of caesium or discuss the bond enthalpies in
the gaseous diatomic species CsCs?  I think not, Chester.
Thank heavens for WebElements at .
Created by chemist Mark Winter at the University of Sheffield,
WebElements provides a user-friendly, online edition of the periodic
table that we all learned in chemistry.  Click on your favorite
element -- which, in my case, is caesium (Cs) -- and you are presented
with more information about that element than you could ever imagine.
Why is this cool?  Well, if you are a chemistry student or teacher,
the information at WebElements is invaluable.  And, if you slept
through chemistry (like me) but are still interested in finding out
more about elements that react "angrily" with water (like caesium),
WebElements is for you!
One word of advice, though: if you are like me, you ignore the stuff
on the left side of most Web pages (like ).  Don't do that at
WebElements!  Most of the cool stuff at WebElements is on the left
side.  For example, on the left side of WebElement's caesium page are
links to information about caesium's history, uses, reactions, bulk
and thermal properties, and so on.
The right side of WebElements' element pages shouldn't be missed
either.  The right side of WebElements' caesium page includes a small
picture of the element, images of the element's Kossel and electron
shells, and even links to information about some of caesium's more
"popular" compounds.
Neat, huh?
That's it for today.  Have a safe and happy next couple of days,
and we'll talk again soon.
