Finding future keepers of city's past
BY TIM ELFRINK
Up a dank staircase, through a dimly lit hallway, behind a
chipped and battered door, Vern Lenzen and Morey Landman
thumb through boxes of old photo negatives.
The two men are working in the dusty, shelf-filled room to
preserve 150 years of Omaha history in the most literal sense - caring for the thousands
of delicate, weathered negatives at the Durham Western Heritage Museum.

Toledo Blade
Flag collection has new home
Findlay - 'Flag City USA' - an appropriate site for display
By JENNIFER FEEHAN
BLADE STAFF WRITER
FINDLAY- Bob McKee wasn't
certain what year in American
history his oversized 41-star
flag represented.
North and South Dakota
became the 39th and 40th
states on Nov. 2, 1889, followed
soon after by the 41st,
Montana, on Nov. 8, 1889. That
would seem to answer the
question except for the fact that
Washington became the 42nd
state just three days after
Montana.

Records Trickle Out of Reagan Library
Only 10% of 55 million pages at the facility near Simi Valley are public.
By Catherine Saillant, Times Staff Writer
The unvarnished story of the Ronald Reagan presidency, scholars and historians
agree, is buried deep within the 55 million pages of presidential documents
housed at his library near Simi Valley.
Will history remember the nation's 40th president as the master politician and
Cold War hero portrayed in countless memorials last week?
Or will his legacy be marred by evidence of an increasingly out-of-touch
president who ignored the AIDS epidemic, racked up an enormous national debt
and then became entangled in an arms-for-hostages deal with Iran?

The Independent
Britain's film heritage at risk
after 2.5m budget cut, say
campaigners
By Louise Jury, Arts
Correspondent
12 June 2004
Britain's vast heritage of film and television
archives is under threat of "irreparable
devastation", according to an alliance of film
historians, curators and directors.
The new lobbying force, called the Curatori Lucis
(treasures of light) Group, claims that Britain's
rich tradition of films and television programmes
is at risk as a result of threatened cuts to the
National Film and Television Archive (NFTVA).

UNLOCKING THE RECORDS
Star-Telegram
Ever wonder whether your favorite restaurant
is really clean?
Whether there's crime occurring in your
neighborhood that you don't know about?
Whether the local high school is overzealously
suspending students for minor dress code
violations?

The Hawkeye
Online records provide
another level of access
It's been more than two years since many court records were put online by the Iowa
Judicial Branch. The site can be accessed 24 hours a day.
"I think we average about 250,000 to 300,000 hits a day," said Rebecca Colton, assistant
to the chief justice.
Colton has heard from many clerks of court who have experienced a drop in the number
of calls and visits since the records went online.

Orbital Data's Fat Pipe
Former Inktomi execs tackle appliance solution for large file
transfers; digital asset management targeted first
by Jim Ericson, Line56
Monday, June 14, 2004
Two-year-old Orbital Data today closed a $12 million round of financing and launched
its flagship rack appliance, aimed at speeding large file transfers, specifically in the
digital asset management (DAM) space.
The Orbital 5500 is not a compression device. Rather, it employs an updated
transport algorithm technology called TotalTransport, which is tuned to business
applications. One device at each end of a distant network link speeds file transfer by 10 times
and many more according to Orbital. Pricing runs $10,000 to $50,000 per appliance.
