Hint: In Netscape, type in the following in the Location: box at the top of the screen.*http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Day_files/Day####.html*

whereis a 3 or 4 digit number corresponding to the month (1-12) and the day (01 - 31) you were born in. Notice the month may be one or two digits, but the day is always two digits (pad with a 0 if necessary). For example, someone born on January 4th, would put in**####***Day104.html*whereas someone born on October 4th would put in*Day1004.html*, and someone born on Christmas would put in*Day1225.html*.
