(( [intro] [RUNS05]
Hours after the shooting began there was a flurry of activity on the web. As people rushed to register website names containing the word "Trenchcoat".
Trenchcoatmafia-dot-org and dot-net were registered with the intent of keeping them OFF-line. Trenchcoat mafia-dot-com began as a memorial site and is now shut down.
Trenchcoat-dot-net was also registered by someone who did NOT want it used for anything tasteless... like this... Trenchcoat-dot-org is another story... A dark and disturbing parody site, using actual images from the shooting and the suspects yearbook... why? for a buck apparently... owners of the site put the dot-org-address up for sale on E-bay... so anyone who didn't like it could buy it and take it down... e-bay cancelled the auction, the site is still up.
Over at Trenchcoat dot com, once an X-rated site unrelated to the tragedy, the owner has removed the adult content, and turned it into an anti-violence resource page.

On another helpful note, Columbine-High, and ColumbineHighSchool-dot-com are both set up as memorial sites for the victim, and include forums allowing people to post messages of support and sympathy for their families.

As for the suspects' AOL webpages... they've been removed by AOL, but nothing dissappears easily on the web... several mirror sites are springing up, claiming to preserve some of the suspects original writings and images.

Just in time for baseball season, a new batting helmet for girls. A helmet makes sense... because
it protects a batter's head from wild pitches. But for players with pony tails...putting on a helmet
on usually means poking all that hair out through a hole in the back. We asked the girl's team at
Evergreen High School in Seattle to try a new kind of helmet... one with a "Pony Tail Port" that
slips right OVER a player's hair...pony tail and all.

That's right. You don't have to waste all that energy sitting up on the couch anymore... when you
can watch it flat on your back! The secret is a pair of mirrors that adjust to any angle.
Just look straight up and watch a picture that's been reversed...and then reversed again so it looks normal. We got Jordan to try it for us and he thought it was cool.

(with wipes?)

The device installs in minutes and swings away when not in use.
The Sky TV costs about $40 and is available through the Absolute Amenities catalog.
