January 2001

Let's begin the 21st century with a bang and..... the January edition of HOTP.

We welcome all the new readers that have joined us recently. Chances are you are looking for your old friends. Guess what? We are right here! Located on the left side of this webpage you'll find some handy links. You'll want to bookmark this one -- the
AfterHours Homepage. From there, you can look up email addresses in our community Directory. Or, read posts and join in the conversation on
Message Board, hosted by Delphi.

Last month we moved HOTP to a new server. We hope you'll agree it was a change for the better. We are especially pleased with our new navigation system. You can now click from page to page using the links along the left side, instead of navigating back to the front page each time you wish to "turn the page". Gee, there's nothing like starting over 12 times huh? :)

Please also note we changed one email address. You can now reach us only at
thehotpress@yahoo.com since our AOL address is no longer valid.

And now...on with the sh0w...........

January 7th marks the end of the official Hurricane season for the year 2000. Carolina isn't doing well anyway, they are 15-16-5. With that win-loss record, no wonder we are giving up on them half way through the NHL season.

The Kids AIDS Site

The Kids AIDS Site was founded in 2000 to help provide HIV care, education, and counseling to pregnant women and mothers with newborns. With the click of a button, visitors to the site donate free care to help reduce the transmission of HIV from mother to child.

This donation of several hours of nursing care to children with AIDS in developing nations is paid for by the sponsors of the website. Clicking on the sponsors ads and making purchases from their websites also adds to the number of hours of nursing care donated.

The donations from the site go to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "Call to Action Project". The Kids AIDS Site was founded by GreaterGood.com, which also operates The Hunger Site and The Rainforest Site (previously featured in the April edition of
