We are specifically looking for things that look like they could have been produced in the Luna City Cavern 100 years from now. In general our reviews are focused much more on Livin' Luna than on the quality and content of all the other wonderful stuff offered on these web sites.

Pasiphae says, "Hey, Adam, just one more review and the links1 page is done!"
Adam says, "I can't seem to get Killer Sims to load completely."
Carla says, "Done until we find more Sims sites to add. These links pages are getting pretty long again."
Caddy says, "Did you try MSIE?"
Adam says, "Yup. MSIE, Netscape, and Mozilla on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. No luck."
Aam says, "Oho! There it comes. Finally! Just took a stock Netscape and lots of patience."
Caddy says, "Cable modem giving you fits, Adam?"
Adam says, "I don't think so. Maybe there's a kink in the pipe somewhere between us and them. I can get to qs33 just fine."
Pasiphae says, "Does that mean I finally get a review of Killer Sims, Adam?"
Adam says, "Like I said: patience, Pas. I want to make sure I fully grok the site before I write comments."
Caddy says, "[deleted] frames!"
Carla says, "Caddy, when did you first notice this obsession with frames?"
Caddy says, "Besides [messing up] navigation, they make me feel claustrophobic. What's the point of having this huge monitor if the webmaster crams all the content into this teeny little window in the corner of my screen?"
Carla says, "Don't frames make it easier to program the links?"
Caddy says, "Laziness is no excuse. There are lots of authoring utilities that will take care of the page layout."
Carla says, "Not everybody can afford WebSite Director, Caddy."
Caddy says, "There's always good old cut-and-paste. That's still faster than fiddling with frames. No excuse for frames."
Carla says, "Until you want to update your links. Then you have to go back to every page."
Caddy says, "If your web site is that complex, you need an authoring program, even if you have to write it yourself. Besides, WSD Express is only $1200."
Adam says, "This must be a creative new use of the word 'only' with which I was previously unfamiliar."
Caddy says, "OK, so WSD Express was designed for commercial sites. But there's still stuff like Adobe PageMaker."
Caddy says, "Besides, they could try WSD Express for free if they wanted to take advantage of Greg's offer for hosting."
[COMMONS] Greg says, "Don't even think about it! Killer Sims is HUGE. They also have their own domain, so we can't host them on qs33."
Caddy says, "Oops! I didn't know he was listening."
[COMMONS] Greg says, "Look at the room description. It tells you who is tuned in on the comm channels."
Caddy says, "Well, I wasn't thinking specifically of Killer Sims."
[COMMONS] Greg says, "Oh. OK."
Adam says, "I'm lost."
Caddy says, "You can't get lost! You're ADAM!"
Adam says, "Lost in Killer Sims. How the heck do you navigate this site?"
Caddy says, "You need to study all the buttons. The navigation changes in accordance with the context."
Adam says, "Hmph. Can you come over and show me how you do this?"
Pasiphae says, "Adam! You're out of character! She CAN'T come over to your place, remember?"
Adam says, "Oops!"
Adam says, "I'd better put this on hold again. Need to get back to writing these K-12 notes."
Adam spreads his wings and leaps for the sky!
Caddy says, "He's not supposed to be able to do that, either."
Carla says, "Maybe we're just watching him on the videophone!"
Pasiphae says, "Adam! Come back here! I WANT MY REVIEW!"
Adam (#2432) Limbo (#15)
Pasiphae says, "Rats! He's gone! I think I'll post this log on the web. Maybe that will nag him."
Carla says, "He won't publish it."
Caddy says, "I will!"
Pasiphae says, Thanks, Caddy!"
Caddy says, "Well, no wonder! killersims.com is registered in Germany. We're pushing bits all the way across the Atlantic!"
