Hi There!

     Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July :) If you've 
been experiencing periods of down time while trying to access Tedrico's 
Page lately, this is due to the relocating of XOOM's 
site and member servers to an expanded network operations center. 
They are constantly working on the server in an attempt to correct 
all server bugs. All I can say is, keep trying until you are 
able to access the site. Server down time periods generally 
last no longer than 5 hours at a time.

     The SURVEY SEZ results were not posted this past Saturday 
on purpose. I'm getting loads of responses from all angles, as 
result of the increased placement of survey pop-up windows 
throughout the site, and I'd like another full week's worth of 
responses, so as to have undisputably thorough answers under 
this coming Saturday's results posting.

     Let us Congratulate Leslie Schentag, our latest Tedrico's 
Page Voice of the Homeless Award Winner! You may read her award winning 
entry at:

     I've been BUSY promoting all of the new revisions and 
additions to this site over the past week and will continue to 
do so, on throughout this week. Once again I'd like to remind 
you to get your emergency shelter and food service listed under 
your home state in the Shelters -N- Soup Kitchens Index, if you haven't 
already done so, at:

     Another reminder! If you've ever wanted to make a 
contribution to my efforts but were unable to for one reason or another, 
you can indirectly do so by clicking on the banners 
located at the following URLs each time you visit Tedrico's Page:

    I'd like to Thank each and every one of you for visiting 
Tedrico's Page on a regular basis (those who do) and helping 
this site to achieve a 10.3% increase in visits, during the 
month of Jun, over the month of May! Click on the following link 
to see the increase under General Site Statistics:

     We're going to do the update part a little different this 
time! I've decided to send this site update notification letter 
out on the 1st and 3rd Monday's of the month, and instead of 
this letter consisting of Welfare in the Air, In Case You Didn't 
Know, and the Select Discussion Topic of the Week, I'm going to 
just list the URLs of the site segments that have been updated 
along with a few helpful links to webmaster resources and 
freebies. Also, if you have anything that you'd like to share 
with the rest of the list members, e-mail me with the details, 
and I'll include that as well.
