April 16 - Everyone
here at Lore is very excited about the look of our new site. This
long overdue revamp embraces our design philosophy that simplicity
is paramount. We will use this space to announce the latest news
and events from Lore and our clients, as well as our opinions on
the technology world at large. We'd love to know what
you think of the new site? Send us any comments, good or bad.
Are you a movie buff, particularly a "Star Wars" fan?
Check out Skinner's
Web site. We've just put Skinner's catalog for their upcoming "Movie
Picture Posters" auction online. If you see something you like
make an absentee bid right on the site. In addition to a number
of "Star Wars" items, the auction contains some pretty
cool stuff including a "Lawrence of Arabia" poster and
a "King Kong" puzzle.
A big congratulations to Fernald Lumber of
Nottingham, NH. After 15 years of managing the lumber mill's
sales and inventory on paper, we've successfully helped them computerized
their operations. With over a million board feet of inventory, it
took a lot of courage for them to give up their paper method and
trust the computer. But the transition went well and it looks like
smooth sailing from here.
Another big congratulations to Yaz,
Inc. After many months of planning and development, we've helped
them successfully launch their new Web site. The site is welcome
news to most men. Men, listen up! Yaz asks you a series of questions
about the women in your life. Then it will not only remind you of
important events (like anniversaries, birthdays and holidays), but
it will choose an appropriate gift. Shopping will never be the same.
Catch the buzz? Microsoft released Internet Explorer
5.0 -- big deal. As with other versions of the browser, it is free
from the Microsoft site,
but I wouldn't bother. It's large, cumbersome and doesn't add much
value over IE 4.x or Netscape 4.x for that matter. However, if you're
using a browser version older than IE 4.0 or Netscape 4.0, we recommend
upgrading (you can use the links below).
