    I now present you with the working tools of an E-mason....
    They are the mouse.
    The keyboard.
    And the modem.

    The mouse is to move within the desktop.
    The keyboard to input the data.
    And the modem to publish in cyber space.

    But as we are not online, as computer nerds.

    But rather as Free and Accepted E-Masons.

    We use these tools to obtain more Masonic light and to show us the true meaning and value of E-Masons.

    And thus we apply them.....

    The mouse teaches us to keep within the bounds of the screen. A square wherein which we all meet on the level.

    The keyboard is to show us that communicating will lead us to a better understanding of each other and the rest of mankind.

    The modem to teach us that even when we are alone, or in the most remote part of the globe, we may meet and gain moral sustenance and support from each other and thus gain more light, from our Ancient and Honorable Fraternity.

    So Mote it Be...

    besides, those are more like gateways. gateways to the internets.

    Virtual Advanced - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I would often use a wardialer (dials all numbers in a prefix) to find computer systems to mess with. Ahh...good times.

    Those of us who have Verizon service would love such advanced service. All they have available is dial up.
