In my digital media class I am creating an online resource for young people (high school and college age) who may have had a less than adequate evolution education. This is meant to be a safe place for students who are curious about evolution and may be questioning their beliefs.
I plan on making a game and a interactive guide to evolution using InDesign (ideas are welcome).
I currently have a blog http://awesomeevolution.wordpress.com/
A Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/evolution.is.legit?ref=hl
and a Twitter account https://twitter.com/EvolutionFAQ
As well as a survey. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/19bAxL7HMsEaGVW_mKnpaKB7YEiN4ZTFX0c...
I plan on making a refined version of this survey to pass out to students at the library as well as interview science profs about their opinions on the current level of evolution education in schools.
Constructive criticism is welcome, but don't be mean. Much of this is still in an unfinished stage and I will be working on it up until the last week of school.
A follow on to Samuel's answer to Jake - the CHR function is really helpful in general - you can also use it for CR/LF (i.e. Carriage Return/Line Feed - basically what you get when you hit ENTER in a text field), where other ways of getting a return aren't as easy. The code for CR/LF is Chr(13) + Chr(10), respectively.
Also, you can easily get the numeric values for your font/font family by looking at CHARMAP in Win32/64 OSes, or by looking up the code table for ASCII.
In short, the £ symbol is CHR(156) - which returns a variant containing a string, or for explicit tex/string type casting, use CHR$(156) - the $ symbol is shorthand for the "string" data type.
Hope this helps!
Hey fellow geeks (and future geeks as well ;) ) - I wanted to give a brief geeky-technical introduction so you would know my history, what I do, and some of the technologies I know.
In the Lotus Notes/Domino arena I have worked for Lotus twice, in Product Development (first time was pre-IBM, second time was post-IBM). I have been a speaker at conferences around the world, written two books and contributed to a third, and used to be a tech editor/writer for a couple of magazines.
Finally, I've worked for huge companies, small pre-IPO startups, and I've had various businesses of my own. I am currently an independent consultant, because quite frankly it is paying the bills right now.
I think it is GREAT that this group was started, and I look forward to both helping others and learning more!
