Message Detail:
Ray and all, it is my pleasure. I'm happy it is useful and you enjoy it. It won't shrink in size, just grow more. ;-)

My latest achievement has been the dot code education website. I wished I had thought of this many moons ago. The website has always been a dream. However, I've been thick headed when it comes to ideas. The idea and recent inspiration that helped develop the website you see on dot code education can be credited to Mr. Jim Farrior, W4FOK who has written a DOS based program to teach you American and international morse code. He mentioned to me once that you COULD learn DOT if you fed in text files into the program with a series of e's, i's and s's (an "e" is one dot, an "i" is two dots" and an "s" is three dots).

I had some help, but I devised a program to input text and convert it to dot. Then, I used a text to wav conversion program from an amateur radio website to turn the text file into a morse code sound file. Then, it's imported into a Microsoft Media server into a format that can be streamed to the user so the user doesn't have to download a huge file.

Jim's website is here:
