Title:     My first big step...
Date:      Thu Oct 14 22:59:32 1999

Today is October 14, 1999.  Perhaps the biggest step I have made in opening 
the city's first Internet cafe, get the bilding oked to be in.  The hardest 
part will be finding a three sink area where I can put in a water supply.. I 
think I have chosen in front of my window.  This way I can put the extra money 
in a locked room if I need to really fast.

The landlord will do the rest.  I needed to know what to go by and where to 
put the exit signs.  The electrical inspector was there too.  I think the 
time went quite well.  We all were willing to work together to make it work.

I now have time to get the rest of the things needed, the painter is coming 
i to paint the colours I would like to have.. I think my landlord and I can 
work towards aquality property together.

I am excited there are people are wanting to pay to work in the states.  They 
risk lots for this time that's promised.  I think Sheri's Web will serve to 
make that possible with complete dedication, determination, hard work, and 
fun.  Definitely fun.  Computer fun family style.. Relaxing, informative, and 
personable.  My goal, to link more in a fun way to the internet, hopefully 
taking some of the fear of comptuers away for some, and a new way to spend 
family nights, groups, friends, students.  I have found the internet very 
impersonable til those on it make it personable.  I believe that while people 
go to restaurants even though they good food, they will want to do that with 
their other time regarding their computer fun and services.  While the word 
Cafe says a menu, this menu will be the use of our computers.  We have two  
operating systems, Linux and Microsoft to choose from.  

My shop will have what's called an On Site Net Nanny: Gretchen.  It is a 
safety system for people under age.  Rather than us monitoring their 
children's actions, we will take responsibility up to using protective 
software tried and found to be effective.  We can not replace parents.  
Parents of four teens, we know if a child wants to bad enough, they will get 
to material they shouldn't.  As Parents, Paul and I have had to often monitor 
our children's actions many times.

I look forward to the challenge.. more later..
