About this Website

Greater New York Mensa is hosted by American Mensa web hosting

  To return to the home page, click on the banner at the top any page. Or use your web browser's "Back" button.

  When clicking on a link which would cause your browser to leave this website, a new browser window is opened, within which the external page is displayed. Since this is a new window, clicking on the back button in it will not return you to this site. Close the new window or switch to the original browser window in order to resume viewing this website.

  This site is best viewed using "any" web browser.  Best viewed with ANY browser.

  This web site is compatible with older web browsing software. Some very old web browsers might have problems. But any web browser more than 3 months old is completely completely unsafe to use because of vulnerabilities to hostile content (malware). Sure to function with Internet Explorer 5 or later, Netscape Navigator 4.7 or later, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla SeaMonkey® Suite, Google Chrome, Opera Opera, Apple Safari, etc.

  This site is edited using Microsoft FrontPage Express, an HTML editor dated 1999. It is WYSIWYG. For me, it crashes less, and is more predictable and stable than other HTML editors I have tried (W3C's Amaya, Nvu -> KompoZer, Mozilla Composer (part of SeaMonkey® Suite), etc.). (Arachnophilia, Metapad, Notepad2, SciTE, etc. are not WYSIWYG.) HTML-Kit (alt)seems promising, but I haven't had time. Any ideas?
  Edited pages are post-processed with a custom program that compresses whitespace.
  A small amount of CSS is used inline, for compactness (enforcing page default font without using hundreds of <font> tags).

  Microsoft FrontPage Express is easy to install on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. You only need FPESETUP.CAB from Internet Explorer 5.01SP2.
  Obviously, run as an Administrator while installing.
  Unzip FPESETUP.CAB to a folder named FPESETUP. Then run this command:
rundll32.exe advpack.dll, LaunchINFSection FPESETUP\fpxpress.inf, DefaultInstall
  This method installs FPE to the right folder ("C:\Program Files\Microsoft FrontPage Express"), and makes proper uninstall and registry keys. (Right-clicking on FPXpress.inf and the clicking Install does not work correctly because it uses the wrong installer.)
  Then delete the folder FPESETUP.
  (Note, this "Advanced INF Install" asks you to reboot the computer, because of the "grpconv.exe -o" it puts in under RunOnce and the "setup.ini" it creates, which apparently create the Start Menu entries. Actually, logging off and logging on is enough.)
  Launching FPE has this flaw: if you multi-launch while it is NOT already running, it will open in multiple windows, instead of one window with multiple documents, like it should.
  When a non-administrator logs on, there is extended wait and then an error message about INF fail. (A one-time thing.)
  When a non-administrator runs the program, there is an error message about the Registry.
  One solution is to add all non-Administrator users who need to use FPE to the "Power Users" Group, which allows them to run "legacy applications".
  You can assign Users' Groups under Computer Management, Local Users and Groups. The special shortcut (control userpasswords2) is not needed.
  UnInstall also asks for a reboot.  Uninstall leaves empty folders behind. (Not a rare phenomenon.)
