02/18/19 Grif.Net – Very first Grif.Net Entry

[I was asked =
how the daily Grif Net blog began.  I was a professor in a small =
college in 1996 that had just installed a computer lab and each student =
had e-mail but seldom received any.  So I vowed to “fill up =
their in-box” with a daily joke, quiz, sober message, etc.  =

This was the =
FIRST Grif.Net ever sent out to 13 people in September 1996 . . and it =
still applies today!]
