0.	Introduction.

I had been planning a really funny newsletter this month based on a gag
that everybody had unsubscribed. But now, even a week after the 
incident, I'm still not feeling very light-hearted. Hopefully by next 
month the whole world climate will have improved a shade. This month's 
edition is going to be pretty short and to the point.

We put up a page on victim help resources on our main site here:
http://www.dreamhost.com/helpvictims.html . I'm sure you've all seen 
this information countless times in the last seven days, but we thought 
there was no harm in another one, and we tried to offer multiple links 
in each of the categories of "Donations", "Blood Drives", and "News".

1.      Frontpage Extensions support.

Well, after four years of not supporting FrontPage extensions, we're 
pleased to announce that we finally do! There isn't going to be much 
fanfare to go with the new feature.. it'll just work like this:

If you have CGI enabled (every plan besides Crazy Domain Insane), you 
can get Frontpage Extensions enabled for FREE by contacting support and
letting them know the domain name you'd like them turned on for.

Realize, this doesn't support ADO or Access databases or ODBC or 
anything like that, it is JUST the Frontpage Extensions (the counters, 
buttons, etc.)

Since your site will have to be moved to a server with the Extensions 
installed, it will take a few days for the dns to propogate after the 
change and your extensions begin to work. So please, don't request the 
extensions unless you're really going to use them!

You'll be able to administer your site from this url once it is set up: 
http://yoursite.com/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmcgi.exe

Your username/password for the Frontpage admin area is the same as for 
your NDN ID (the one you use at https://panel.dreamhost.com/).

You can read all about it in this section of our Knowledge Base:
/kbase/?area=74

Another caveat.. when you make the switch, your whole site gets chowned 
to the "dhapache" user. Kind of sucky, but if you ever decide to switch 
off of Frontpage Extensions in the future we can then easily chown it 
back!

2.	DHSOTM.

This month's lucky luck DHSOTM winner is http://www.bookartoons.com/ !

It's the animation web site of Josh BOOK, no relation to the writer of 
this newsletter! Good job Josh, your T-Shirt, pins, stickers, and 
congratulatory letter will be on the way soon!

I recommend everybody check the site out and look at the various 
animations (in flash and real video) there! EVERYBODY.

If you're wondering what the deal is with DHSOTM, check out:
https://panel.dreamhost.com/?tab=home&subtab=dhsotm and be cleared.

3.	Random quote from newdream.net.

It happened that a fire broke out backstage in a theater. The clown 
came out to inform the public. They thought it was just a jest and 
applauded. He repeated his warning, they shouted even louder. So I 
think the world will come to an end amid general applause from all the 
wits, who believe that it is a joke.

Thanks,
josh!
