Ahlân wa Sahlân!
My Summer in Syria (a.k.a. Summer of Peace and Reconciliation) Web Page is slowly taking shape. When I get connected to the campus network, it will be much easier to scan my slides, as I won't lose half of my work to floppies deciding to go corrupt between the lab and my machine :-) I'll let you know when I have the first pictures on-line.
But for now . . .
By request of our "baTal", Shahram Paksima, a short clip of "Habîbî" (a.k.a. `Amr Dîâb's "Nûr il-`Aîn"). This is a 200K one minute clip in RealAudio 5.0 format. The download time should be negligible since RealAudio uses streaming.
Since I had a lack of content initially, I thought I'd throw up everyone's email addresses; however, nearly five years later, most are no longer valid, so just our names are now listed, unless I know the address still works. Ironically, I last updated this page exactly a year ago, in May 2001, but since I have some pictures scanned, real content is coming soon, I promise!
