Week #4 (May 2,
Have you been able to
send your last week assignment to other members of the class? Have you read the
assignment of the others? It helps a great deal to read what others are writing to
improve your writing. I think that your English writing is improving. At
least, thanks to the "spelling check" of Word 98, your spelling improved
drastically in your last assignment.
1) (Optional) Review Exercise: Let's write an
e-mail message using Word 98 and send it after checking spelling. The following is a
way to do so:
Open the Word 98 and create a message to
your key-pal or a person listed on Dave's E-Mail Connection.
Check and correct the spelling.
Open Hidemaru and paste the spelling-checked
message on Hidemaru.
Edit the message on Hidemaru and remove the
"bugs." Save the file giving it a name.
Open Eudora and create a new message window.
Paste the Hidemaru message on the new
Fill in the address (To: ) and send the
message. (I noticed that many of you have not yet created your "signature"
on Eudora. Select "signature" from the "tool" menu on Eudora and
create your signature before sending the e-mail. For instructions, click here.)
2) Review Exercise: Let's review how to
"paste" e-mail messages on Hidemaru editor. I would like you to make a
Hidemaru file on which are pasted, chronologically (from the oldest to the most recent),
all the e-mail messages you have sent and received:
Open a "Hidemaru" window: 1) Click
the "Start" button. 2) Select the "Program" menu 3) Select
the "Tool" menu. 4) Click on "Hidemaru" in the
Start Eudora. Select a message you
would like to paste and open it.
Select all the content of the message you
have selected. Let me introduce three ways to do so: 1) "Drag" all the
content of the e-mail message, then, click on the right button of your mouse and click on
the "copy" command in the short-cut menu. 2) Select "Edit" on
the Eudora menu bar and select "select all" command on the pull-down menu.
Again select "Edit" on the Eudora menu bar and select "copy"
command on the pull-down menu. 3) Make sure the cursor is active on the e-mail
message window. Press a "Ctrl" key and "A" key on your keyboard
at the same time. Click on the right button of your mouse and click on the
"copy" command in the short-cut menu.
Now you order where to "paste."
Click on the Hidemaru window and then do one of the following: 1) Select
"Edit" on the "Hidemaru" menu bar and click on the "paste"
command from the pull-down menu. 2) Press the "F9" key on your keyboard.
3) Click on the "paste" icon on the "Hidemaru" icon menu.
(The "paste" icon is located just at the right of the scissors icon.)
Now you select another e-mail message from
the Eudora mailbox and paste it at the bottom of the "Hidemaru" message you have
just pasted, repeating the above procedures #2, 3, and 4.
After you finish pasting all the messages
you would like to paste, edit the "Hidemaru" file. Perhaps you would like
to adjust line breaks and remove bugs.
Save the "Hidemaru" file as
"em000502.txt" on your floppy disk: 0) Make sure your floppy disk is in the
floppy disk drive of your machine. 1) Select the "file" and select
"save as" command from the pull-down menu. 2) Press the black inverted triangle
at the right of "file location." 3) Click on "3.5 inch FD."
4) Move your cursor in the "file name" box and click the left button of
the mouse. 5) Type em000502.txt in the "file name" box. 6) Press the
"save" button and wait until the lamp of the floppy disk drive turns off.

make a new "folder" and change the name of "files" and

"view" pull-down menu. 3) Click on the "view" tag of the option

Using the nickname "Mr. Shimada" ("email@example.com"
and "firstname.lastname@example.org"), send me
e-mail attaching the modified "ht000502.htm" on your floppy disk. (If you
