Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy continue to be popular on the ‘net. Amazing but true – maceddy.com is fast approaching 3 million hits on the website!
And – I’m not talking about 3 million hits since the website first went up in 1996. I’m talking about since our new, high-tech website went live in October 2006 – exactly two years ago this month!
The software program that runs the site has a built-in counter; I insisted the web designer put a link to it on our home page. It’s on the far left of the page, just below the “Babelfish” translation tool.
If you are the lucky person who clicks onto maceddy.com and sees the number 3,000,000 – you will receive a gift credit of $100 towards ANYTHING on our website!
All you need to do is take a screen shot of that part of the page and email it to us. Here’s how you do it:
1. Each time you visit http://www.maceddy.com over the next few days, scroll down the page to see whether you are visitor #3 million. If you are, make sure you have scrolled down enough so that the number is clearly visible on your monitor.
2. Hold down the “ctrl” key and while still holding it down, hit the “PrtSc” print-screen key on your computer. Doing that means that you have taken a snapshot of the screen. Then, minimize your browser. (DON’T close the browser, just minimize it.)
3. Open up a new Word document. Right-click your mouse on the page and click “paste.” It will paste the screen snapshot into the document.
4. Save the Word document and email it as an attachment to us.
5. If for some reason this didn’t work for you, you can maximize your browser and try taking a snapshot again. Or – if you have WebTV – you can take a picture of it with a digital camera, make a print of it and send it to the club. In this case, also please email us to let us know that you are the 3 millionth visitor!
