a lot."

"My gosh!  You are the author of Hammurabi!   We love that! ... We sent your link everywhere, just as we have with your African myths.  FYI: Your Hammurabi's Code site is being used in computer labs in schools all over the country with web access.  I know this because one day, you must been reloading ... we received over 40 e-mails from various schools, asking if "our" site was down.  We explained -- it isn't ours.  We just strongly recommended it, and gave them your link.  By then, you were back online.  You may not be aware how many schools are using your site, because an entire day of kids from one school will read as 1 on your counter.  But, if you reload your site Mon-Fri, please keep this in mind -- your site is loved and used, nationwide!" 

"Thank you again for all your work.   Creative, original, and fun!  (And excellent learning adventures!)  You are truly a gift to the web!   I hope you find time to write many more sites!"
