Random Handful (2006) -
Trapper Robbins' music website. "Green Dreams"
(see below) is but one of many offerings. Check this out - you'll be the happier for it!
Green Dreams (December 2003) -
Trapper Robbins composes and plays a witty and entertaining song about the often unsavory circumstances
one must suffer through in completing a state ("green dreams").
The song is about four minutes in duration and 4 megabytes in file size.
One megabyte per minute of playing time is typical of MP3 files.
Word Finder (December 2003) - Bob Bolton produced a computer application
that builds a two-dimensional array of letters based upon a user-specified list of words to be "hidden"
inside the array.
A sample array is given here
for the fifteen Arizona county names and county highpoint names. Twenty-nine words are present,
rather than thirty, because the word Graham serves for both the county and highpoint names;
Gila County has two named highpoints; and because Greenlee County's highpoint is unnamed.
The link above is to a 4.2 megabyte zip file and will take a while to download if you have a standard
modem connection. Once saved to your hard drive, unzip the contents to a new directory. Hopefully you
have Winzip to accomplish this task in Windows. To obtain the latest version of Winzip
click here. If on a UNIX system, use standard command syntax.
Read these instructions to follow the setup procedure and
generate your own word puzzle. It would be wonderful if puzzles with county and/or highpoint names
could be created and posted here for all to share and enjoy.

Palindromes (March 2006) - Jerry Brekhus offers numerous
