Mike Montoya gave some great advice to Goodyear Pete about screen captures,
and Goodyear Pete came up with a great idea for roundtables...

Haven't been doing anything during Roundtables.
I have been working on a certificate that I can snailmail to those that give
snailmail address...nothing really fancy, but something that they can put on
somewhere...I've stopped working on it because of all of my military stuff,
be more than willing to share it with anyone that wants to recognize their
Scouts for "using the resources of the Internet to do a better job
also asked Big Ed to see about creating a "Internet" interpreter strip
similar to those
for other languages, because it's a small item, people can readily see it,
is a connection between this "language" we speak and others' inability to do so
presently. Big Ed, I sent it back before I left, but it could have been
with the email program failure that I suffered back in June. Please let me
you've found out, and let me know if your Virtual Trading Post wants to sell
or should I invest a couple hundred (at the end of the month, Jessiann...at
the end of the month!!) to have them made and distributed myself.
The Interpreter's strip would be red and white (yeah, I know that we're
this khahitan and red stuff, but somehow when you create a patch with tan as
it ends up being a shade off one way or the other...the red and white is
it can be still used and it's bright enough to be seen against the drab tan
shirts) with the word "INTERNET" centered in white. Nothing more.
The certificate has the Interpreter's strip centered along with a definition
of the "Internet" as compiled from several resources. The wording states:
"Congratulations on using the Internet as an additional resource to do a
better job Scouting! While this certificate only states that you have
attempted to start your
journey into cyberspace, your true experiences with online Scouting will
better the longer you are "online" and participating. Don't forget to share
new resources with others in your unit and community as you continue down a new
Scouting trail!" There are two lines, one for the date and the other for
This could be the Roundtable Commissioner, a Scoutmaster or Cubmaster or
Advisor, or even (*hehehhee*) me. When I get it done, I'll place a copy of
in our archives, and you can download at your own leisure and use it (and
make a version in SOMETHING ELSE other than Geoworks, for those that need a
Pagemaker version, for say, or something...you really need to try Geoworks!
Big Ed, let us all know please!
Mike Montoya suggested using a screen capture utility...but I think that he
about LViewPro's screen capturing ability....that way, you only need ONE utility
to do both the screen captures AND the slide show. LViewPro is a good program
that has muliple purposes....pretty great for shareware! Mike's advise is
