Setting up your computer to get the most out of this site

If you already have a 4.0 or better browser there are some things you can do to enhance your web site viewing experience.

Set your monitor's screen resolution to 800x600 pixels and at least 16 bit High Color or better.
In Windows 98, click and hold on the monitor icon in the system tray (lower right corner on your task bar) and select the above choice.
Open your browser's window to full size.
You can use the font size icon to set font size for your own needs or choose View/Text Size from the drop down menu bar (in IE). This site has been designed to look best at the default Medium size.

Download the latest version of your preferred Browser

In order to experience the web fully, you should download and install the latest version of your favorite browser. While we have made every effort to make this site display in a useable fashion for all browsers, if you don't have at least a 4.0 or newer version of Internet Explorer or Netscape 3.0 or better, some of the behind the scenes programming written in JavaScript won't be supported.

We recommend the Internet Explorer browser because of its more extensive support for the latest World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) which allow for a more accurate and precise layout and design; as well as many other advanced techniques. We've made minimal use of this great new technology at this point in order to assure that the site is as backwards compatible as possible. We urge you to update now so that when we begin to implement CSS you will be able to enjoy the full effect.

Download Internet Explorer 7.0
