Happy New Years to Everyone!

We are back in business and preparing for a new relaunch within the next few 
weeks for a whole new web site and magazine with expanded streamlined services 
and information.

I got to  holiday in Paris and am staying in New York, working closely with Jay 
and John to finish up the web site.  Had a few drinks recently with Leisure Guy 
over at a Rave in Tribecca.

We're beta testing right now with netscape 6 it's quite a problem child for 
developers, anyone else have any trouble with Flash/Shockwave Plugins with 
Netscape 6.  Any Suggestions would love to hear from all of you.

If you got the Flash 4 Plug-in, let me know. We are developing in Flash 4 for 
backwards compatiability. Will develop the whole site in Flash 4, question do 
you folks need an HTML version of our new magazine or is FLash 4 ok? 

Also, if anyone needs web hosting for a gallery please let me know -- we got 
gallery hosting now for everyone and the space to support it.  It's 20mbs and 
advertising supported and by subscription only.

We also have a new email service in beta testing if you need a fast email you 
can check it out, or contact me and i will set you up with one.

Also preparing an events calender for you folks to post your arts events to the 
global community!

Another question for everyone out there, what do you folks think the Bush 
Administration will mean to the Internet Economony and the arts world  as a 

Anyone got anything they want to announce relating to arts and new media let me 
know and send it here. Lets get this party started  All non-flames will be 

I don't like flames.

Anyone in the NYC got any good parties planned let us, know--John, Jay and 
Leisure Guy are looking for some cool drinking cronies.

Visit my friends at the Nuyorican.com, tell them I sent you (it's not an 
advertisement)--if you are in NYC the Nuyorican always has the most wild Slams!

And yeah, check out &dee varalli grober's new web site, we've been down for so 
long with the zine (7 months of preperations and relaunches) that I keep for 
getting our purpose to keep you folks informed, any way check out Varlli's new 
web site studio exhibition: <http://www.nd-grober.com>www.nd-grober.com. You 
can tell him I sent you.

Oh yeah, we're having NT problems again on our workstation--getting it to 
Network  with our cable modem, the enternet card doesn't seem to be working--NT 
4's a beast and we're hoping toup grade to 2000, any one hear about 2000

ob Description
Install Engineering Manager 

Seattle, WA; Dallas, TX; New York, NY; Mclean, VA

InterNAP Network Services is currently searching for a strong Network Manager 
to join our team as an Install Engineering Manager . Install Engineering 
Managers supervise up to ten mid-level Network Engineers in their quest to 
maintain the highest standard of Quality of Service in the industry. They are 
also responsible for helping their team apply our strict engineering standards 
to our customers' networks in order to integrate them into InterNAP's Private 
Network Access Points (P-NAP's). 

Install Engineering Managers must have the following background in order to be 
sucessful at InterNAP:

*       1 year of managing technical staff in an ISP or WAN operations 
environment (such as a NOC)
*       3 years of service as a Network Engineer or Senior Network Engineer in 
an ISP/WAN environment
*       Strong Unix skills (preferably Linux)
*       1 year of BGP
*       Strong dedication to customer service

InterNAP's connectivity service routes data to and from businesses across the 
Internet in a manner that minimizes data loss by avoiding the Internet's 
conventional traffic exchange process known as "peering." Private and public 
peering arrangements between backbone providers lead not only to congestion at 
peering points, but also to routing inefficiencies, two factors that 
significantly reduce the speed of data transmission across the Internet. 
InterNAP's P-NAP(R) facilities and ASsimilator(R) technology orchestrate the 
routing of mission-critical data in a faster, more reliable, and more managed 
fashion than conventional Internet technology. For more information about 
InterNAP or our other openings, please visit us at http://www.internap.com.
