Subject: Red Rover Site Open
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 1997 21:15:34 -0400 (EDT)
Our Red Rover site here in La Canada, California is officially open, hopefully for the rest of the school year. We are open for driving Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 3:00 PST. Here are the instructions (you might want to print these out). The only thing you need to do this is Netscape. 1. Open Netscape and go to File, Open Location. Type in our IP address, which is: 22.214.171.124 2. Click on "Explore Mars" 3. You will see 2 boxes for typing a passcode, etc. Type in the words "guest" in both places (no capitals), then scroll down to see the box "Press here to validate your password" and click on that. 4. You will then see an image box in the upper left, a message box in the upper right, and some directionals below. Depending on your screen size, you will probably have to scroll through the directional part of the screen to see everything needed to direct the rover. There is a box in the directionals for "zoom". If the picture of the mars site is too small, I suggest you zoom to 2x and click on "Submit Change". You won't see the image enlarge until you have performed a function. For the directionals, if you change the "seconds" driven, you must "submit change" or your change won't be effective. If you want to simply take a new picture without moving, click on the circle in the middle of the directional arrows. If you want to send a message, scroll down in the directional screen to see a box called "Open Message Window". Once you open that, you can type a message and then click on Send. 4. If you are having problems, you can send me an email to my classroom at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will hear my email alarm go off and will check your message and hopefully figure out the problem. Or, you can call me in my room at (818) 952-8349. In any case, I would love to hear from you about good experiences too! Norma Barnes, one of our PTK Advocates, also wanted me to mention that her site and a neighboring site are open for driving 9:00-3:00 Central time. There IP addresses are: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 (this one closed on Wednesdays). Happy Driving!
