The Excalibur Chime

Did anyone ever use the Excalibur BBS's back in their time (roughly in the late 90s)?

What I'm trying to do is get a hold of the default chiming sound it had when a user logged on while you were logged on, so that I can use it on MSN messenger for when people log on. I can't find it anywhere!

(For those of you who don't know and are curious, it was basically a windows-based app used for hosting BBS's, unlike the dos-based Remote Access or any of the others. Very cool. I believe some of them are still active, towards its death, there used to be a way for older versions of windows (ie. Win95) to login via the internet, as opposed to dialing straight in.)

Does anyone know any good creams that would stop itching due to allergic reaction?

I have a topical allergic reaction to, well, the sun. Would allergy medication have any effect on that? do you know anything that would stop the itching on my arms and feet (and face to a lesser extent)?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi! I have a sciency question which you can probably guess at the answer to, but it'd be nice if someone knew for sure. It is this:

How (and when) does dew form? And is dewfall a real thing or was it invented by romance writers so they could talk about it happening gently and waking couples up al fresco?

I'm looking for a webcam broadcasting program. I want something that I can minimize to my taskbar, and that I can use my IP type address (ex as the link. I'd be willing to pay for one, but would really prefer free.

Any suggestions?

Two questions;

1. I have a very sore ear, it's inside so I can't see why it hurts, I believe it is from those god awful earphones that sit inside your ears, it's making my jaw sore now too, any ideas on how I could get rid of it quickly?
2. Does anyone know any links for information on ingredients in cosmetics, or something that lists potentially harmful synthetic ingredients in cosmetics and other products?

Has anyone here had any experience with microdermabrasion to get rid of acne scars? I've heard it works well, but only from like, one random person. I'm also interested in the cost. Any info would be appreciated!

next month, im going to a couple of concerts that are about an hour away, two if you consider the traffic we'll hit (the venue is in indianapolis, so traffic is a mess). one of them starts at 7:30 the 21st, and one of them is at noon the 22nd. being only 17 years old, my parents limitations on my "freedoms", so-to-speak, are as strict as gas prices are high. im going with a group of friends, including my boyfriend, so a hotel room probably would not tickle my parents fancy.

my question - is there any other way two avoid two trips to and from the venue that you think the average pair of semi-strict parents would allow, or are we just going to be shelling out a lot of gas money?
