Hmm, hopefully i know enough english to argue, normally use it only computer-related.. Private Web-pages have this typical stuff like "email me", guestbook and such. i imagined a guestbook with a rebol-interpreter-applet, where people could post and test short funny scripts, to have some additional fun. Rebol has a certain kind of ridle-ability, because it is short and surprising. Also, Newspapers have some "standard" tools like crosswords, chess, weather, horoscope. Rebol-ridles could be another such tool. Like Chess not everyone would solve them, but they give a kind of intellectual flair, and some of the non-solvers at least have a look to the ridle, some thinking and a look to the solution. And thinking about horoscope and biorythmus: having such programms on the site, people would really use and trust them *g*. And short understandable code for the curious could be supplied too. With "ide" in rebol on the webpage (edit, output-field minimally). You know, not reading descriptions or "click yes/no" or move mouse. change a letter on the screen, run, see what happens. try. In the very old days with homecomputers, BASIC and declaration-free programming (input, print, no gui) people where interested in programming. Specially Scientific American had small interesting programming projects. So having a rebol-page with cute one-liners, graphics demos, find the bug and something could be another feature for web-magazines. -Volker
