Hempsters are invited to use copies of these tours on their own web sites, as well as use them in pro-hemp printed materials.
Hempsters are also invited to create NEW tours for use on the next edition of the Electric Emperor. Tours should be 240 pixels tall by 320 pixels wide (or smaller) and should be primarily graphic presentations of some hemp related fact(s) if you can make them language independent, all the better. Send copies (keep your originals) of your tours to: Milo, POB 1361, Tustin, CA, 92781, USA on Mac or PC formatted 90 cm floppy disk(s) or Zip cartridge(s) or ISO or Macintosh formatted CD-R(s). Make sure all artwork is your own original artwork or derived from materials on the Electric Emperor CD-ROM. In addition to GIF or JPEG versions of your tour pictures, also provide PhotoShop, Painter, Illustrator, Flash, TIFF, EPS, or PICT copies, if available. Thanks.
4. Take the materials on this CD-ROM and use them to create pro-hemp web pages, fliers, newsletters, and other materials. Spread the word! If you come up with anything really cool, please donate a copy for future editions of the Electric Emperor. Hints on creating or improving your own personal web pages are included on this CD-ROM.
Version 1.4 of the Electric Emperor CD-ROM (a faithful rendering of Jack Herers best selling The Emperor Wears No Clothes: the authorative historical record of the cannabis plant, marijuana prohibition, & how hemp can still save the world).
This World Wide Web version of the Electric Emperor should run on any computer that can read CD-ROMs and has a web browser.
See Instructions for more information about what is on this disk and how to use it.
The multi-platform portion of the disk carries all of the text from the original book, all of the pictures and photographs from the original book (many colorized), voice commentary by the author, songs donated by pro-hemp musicians, and the entire 1942 U.S. government Hemp for Victory film as a QuickTime movie, plus several other videos. Everything is provided as raw data files and in a HTML/web presentation. The raw data files are in common computer standards to allow easy use in print and broadcast media.
The Macintosh portion of the disk carries all of the above plus a custom reader that includes all of the above plus color animations, original color pictures, computer tools to support research and the writing of academic/school papers, and support for the handicapped (thanks to the excellent built-in support in the Mac OS). The Macintosh custom reader runs on System 4 or later and any Macintosh with any speed CD-ROM drive, although some features require System 6, System 7, 256-colors, thousands of colors, or millions of colors.
The Custom Electric Emperor Macintosh Reader will run much faster than this World Wide Web version. It will run even faster if you copy the Working Code folder to your hard drive (you can then make a new alias to the Electric Emperor file and put that in your Apple Menu folder).
Services for the blind, vision impaired, motor skill impaired, and other disabled persons available through the Electric Emperor Macintosh Reader.
Advanced services and multi-media presentations available through the Electric Emperor Macintosh Reader.
The Emperor materials (but NOT the materials donated by others) can be used to create personal pro-hemp web pages, newsletters, fliers, and other materials. We encourage pro-hemp activists to mix material from the CD-ROM (with appropriate credit) with their own materials to create interesting materials for the World Wide Web and elsewhere. We also encourage you to donate copies of your work for use in future editions of the Electric Emperor. We also encourage the donation of artwork, photographs, and short articles.
You should own all copyrights to any materials you donate.
Text materials should be in either Plain Text ASCII or formatted HTML.
Graphic materials (pictures, photographs, drawings, illustrations) should be in GIF, JPEG, TIFF, EPS, PDF, PhotoShop, Illustrator, Flash, or PICT formats and should be 240 pixels tall by 320 pixels wide or smaller. Graphics materials intended for use in print should be in EPS format and can be up to full page size.
Sound materials (music or voice) should be very short and in AIFF, System 7 SND, or QuickTime movie format. We are particularly interested in QuickTime movie MIDI files in a variety of styles for use as background music.
Multi-media materials (animations, videos, interactive pieces) should be very short and in QuickTime movie, ShockWave, Flash, PDF or Immedia formats.
Web materials should be completely self-contained, including the HTML code. NOTE: Make sure that web materials meet ISO 9660 Level 1 limitations: one to eight character file names (limited to only upper case letters, decimal digits, and underscore character), followed by a period, followed by three character file extensions (limited to only upper case letters and decimal digits, with only upper case letters as the initial character), arranged in folders (directories) no more than eight levels deep with one to eight characters directory names (limited to only upper case letters, decimal digits, and underscore character, with only upper case letters as the initial character). Also, three of the possible eight directory levels are used by the CD-ROM.
Hempsters are also invited to create NEW tours for use on the next edition of the Electric Emperor. Tours should be 240 pixels tall by 320 pixels wide (or smaller) and should be primarily graphic presentations of some hemp related fact(s) if you can make them language independent, all the better. Send copies of your tours to: Milo, POB 1361, Tustin, CA, 92781, USA on Mac or PC formatted 90 cm floppy disk(s) or Zip cartridge(s) or CD-R(s). Disks will not be returned. Make sure all artwork is your own original artwork or derived from materials on the Electric Emperor CD-ROM. In addition to GIF or JPEG versions of your tour pictures, also provide TIFF, PICT, PhotoShop, Painter, or Flash copies, if available. Thanks.
