DHARMA HAVEN'S WEB NOTEPAD 

Webpad Basics   Consider using hypertext for your own notes:  A Web page doesn't have to be made public on the internet. 
Searches & Stuff    Our startup pages: Web searches and directories, newsgroup searches, and other research tools -- with useful (weather, purchasing guides, etc.) and fun stuff, too. 
S&S Notes  Comments on the entries in Searches and Stuff go here, to keep the search page itself short enough to load quickly. 
Links & Resources  Here we temporarily store links and off-line resources that might enhance the regular Dharma-Haven pages. 
Local Notes  We never upload our local version of this page to the Web:  It's a space for rough drafts and trying out new ideas.

COMPUTER SYSTEMS FOR WEB WORK 

Basic Systems   Get a basic system right away; then delay upgrades until the new gizmos are common, and you really need them. 


Connections  Contribute to the World Wide Web, even with little or no access to the Internet; and learn to improve your access. 
Webwork Software  Excellent software for working with basic Web pages can be downloaded from the Internet -- some for free, some as inexpensive shareware. 
Wetware Training  Of all the components of a computer system, human beings are hardest to install correctly.

WEBLISHING:  CREATING PAGES
AND MAKING THEM AVAILABLE 

Guidelines  Although commonly called 'style,' these issues powerfully affect how people will experience your pages, and whether they can even read them at all. 

Making Pages  It's easy to create Web pages in a page-view editor -- but a look at the formatting codes sometimes helps. 


Weblishing and Site Keeping  Find a reasonably priced host for your Web pages, upload the pages to your server -- and keep them up to date. 

Weblicity  Among the millions of pages out here, how are people going to find yours?

    Keys  - Working with Intuition and Ordinary Magic 
    Science Topics  -  Understanding and Extending Science 
    Tibetan Topics  -  Buddhism, Culture, Healing Methods 

Site Directory  Direct links to each of the pages on the Dharma Haven Web site, with dates of latest revision. 
Dharma Haven's Vision Statement  Working with the vision of building an enlightened society: Our extremely non-sectarian goals for the Dharma Haven Web site. 

Supporting Dharma Haven 

Information for Volunteers  Volunteers are welcome to contribute to the Dharma Haven pages in any of these ways:  by creating annotated indices for material that already exists on the Web; by develop pages containing new (to the Web) material; or by adopting all or part of an existing Dharma Haven page. 
Adopt-a-Page  Helping us maintain and improve our pages is a good way to help, while developing Web building skills.  One could start by adopting all or part of an existing Dharma Haven page. 

Pages and Sites Hosted by Dharma Haven  We gladly host Web pages that further our basic vision. Here are links to the pages we are currently hosting.

DHARMA HAVEN SITE KEEPING

Your Comments and Suggestions  Our decisions about what to do next, when working on creating and maintaining the Dharma Haven pages, are strongly influences by the feedback we get from visitors to our site. 
Dead Links  Through the kindness of the Shambhala Webmasters, Mom Spider checks our pages each week for expired or redirected links and other problems. 

Searches for "dharma haven"  One good way to make our pages available to people is to get accurate descriptions into the Internet searches and directories.  This shows what people will see if one of our pages turns up in a search.

SEARCHES FOR "dharma haven" 

Getting accurate descriptions into the Internet searches and directories is quite a challenge.  Different services have different methods for deciding what pages to put into an index, and what to provide as a description of a particular Web page. 

Searching for "dharma haven" shows what people will see if one of our pages turns up in a search.  (It doesn't matter what they searched for -- if our page is in the search results, this is how it will look.)
