Netscape Communicator

Netscape Communicator is a discontinued Internet suite produced by Netscape Communications Corporation, was the fourth major release in the Netscape line of browsers. It was first in beta in 1996 and was released in June 1997. Netscape Communicator addressed the problem of Netscape Navigator 3.x being used as both the name of the suite and the browser contained within it by renaming the suite to Netscape Communicator. It included more groupware features intended to appeal to enterprises. In February 1998, Netscape announced that Mozilla.org would co-ordinate the development of Netscape Communicator 5 as "a dedicated team within Netscape with an associated Web site that will promote and guide open dialog and development of Netscape's client source code." However, the aging Communicator code proved to be difficult to work with, so it was abandoned. The whole source code of Communicator was re-written by Mozilla, who were testing it as Mozilla Application Suite. Netscape, now owned by AOL released Communicator's successor Netscape 6 in November 2000, based on Mozilla Application Suite with changes and additions.

Minor updates to Communicator continued to be issued, culminating in the release of Netscape Communicator 4.8 in August 2002. Netscape Communicator was available in various editions, such as "Professional" and "Complete"; the following components were included in Netscape Communicator: Netscape Navigator — Web browser Netscape Messenger — e-mail client and news client Netscape Collabra — news client Netscape Address Book — address book Netscape ComposerHTML editor Netscape Netcaster — push technology client Netscape Conference — multi-user communication client Netscape Calendar — enterprise calendar client In October 1998, a major update to the program was released as Netscape 4.5. This included many improvements to the Messenger e-mail client, which now took on the features of Collabra. However, some of the less popular components, such as Netcaster, were dropped. A feature called "Roaming Profiles" was added in version 4.5 that synchronized a user's bookmarks, address book and preferences with a remote server, so that a user's home and work browsers could have the same bookmarks.

By the time version 4.5 was released, Netscape had started the Mozilla open source project and had ceased charging for Communicator. The term "Navigator" referred to the browser component alone, while "Communicator" referred to the suite as a whole, as established in version 4.0. However, due to user confusion, the names were used interchangeably; because none of the applications besides Navigator were popular on their own, because Netscape never produced any other desktop software that approached the popularity of Navigator, people would refer to both the Communicator suite and the Navigator browser as "Netscape". The Mozilla Foundation continued to develop the Netscape code base, providing the Mozilla Application Suite as a continuation of Netscape Communicator; the Mozilla Foundation decided in 2006 to discontinue development of the Application Suite.

Linn Run State Park

Linn Run State Park is a Pennsylvania state park on 612 acres in Cook and Ligonier Townships, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The park borders Forbes State Forest. Two smaller streams, Grove Run and Rock Run, join in Linn Run State Park to form Linn Run which has a waterfall, Adams Falls, which can be seen at the park; this state park is just off Pennsylvania Route 381 near the small town of Rector. The area in and surrounding Linn Run State Park is now a thriving second growth forest. One hundred years ago it was described as a "waste land"; the ridges of the Allegheny Mountains had once been covered with old-growth forest. These forests were clear cut during the lumber era that swept over most of the mountains and forests of Pennsylvania during the mid-to-late 19th century and early 20th century; the lumberman stripped the mountains and took the logs to the sawmill where they were cut into lumber. Smaller logs were used to reinforce the mine shafts of the many coal mines throughout southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The bark of the hemlock tree was used as a source of tannin at the tanneries of the area. The only thing the lumbermen left behind was the treetops; these tree tops were left to dry. The passing steam locomotives of the Pittsburgh and Somerset Railroad would ignite this dry brush causing massive wildfires that swept through the mountains and valleys. In 1909, after the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania had purchased the land from the lumberman, Forester John R. Williams reported, "I should say that three-fifths of the reserve had been burned since the lumbering was done; the fires did great damage to the young growth. Some places were covered with nothing but ferns and blackberry bushes." Scars from these fires can still be seen today in the Linn Runn area. Most of the wildlife in the area was devastated due to the destruction of their habitat or over hunting. White-tailed deer were imported from Michigan and New York to reestablish what had once been a thriving population of deer; these deer were released throughout Pennsylvania.

The current population of deer in Pennsylvania are descended from the original stock, introduced in 1910 after the lumberman had moved out of the area. All trails at the park are open to hiking. Mountain biking and snowmobiling are not permitted on the hiking trails. Adams Falls Trail is passes Adams Falls; the trail is rocky and goes by several large boulders. The waterfall is surrounded a stand of hemlock with overhanging rhododendron. Iscrupe Trail is 0.75 miles and follows the original Linn Run Road, ending at the Adams Falls Picnic Area. Flat Rock Trail ends at a large, smooth rock on the banks of Linn Run. Grove Run Trail is a looping 4.0 miles long behind the Grove Run Picnic Area. It becomes progressively steeper. Hunting is permitted on about 400 acres of Linn Run State Park; the most common game species are squirrels and white-tailed deer. The hunting of groundhogs is prohibited. Hunters are expected to follow the regulations of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Linn Run is a trout fishery with native brook trout.

Linn Run State Park has long been a popular destination for families and church groups for picnicking. There are two main picnic areas at the park. Adams Falls Picnic Area is near Adams Falls, it has a selection of picnic tables, a pavilion and modern restrooms. Grove Run Picnic Area is near Grove Run, it otherwise has the same facilities at the Adams Falls Picnic Area. The cabin area has been designated as the Linn Run State Park Family Cabin District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places; the older cabins, dating back to 1933, were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, in an architectural style known as WPA Rustic. There are ten cabins at Linn Run State Park. Only one of them is modern with a bathroom; the other nine cabins are rustic, meaning that there is no indoor plumbing, but they do have basic furniture as well as wood-burning stoves, electricity, a refrigerator, oven and microwave. Each rustic cabin has an water pump. There is a modern bathhouse in the area of the cabins.

Sub-Parish Church of Santo Cristo

The Sub-Parish Church of Santo Cristo known as "Apo Kristo" Chapel and Visita ng Sto. Cristo, is the oldest "ermita" in Baliuag, Philippines; the visita is bounded by the cities of San Fernando and Mabalacat in Pampanga, Balanga in Bataan. At present, its mother Parish, the Saint Augustine Parish Church of Baliuag, has 4 parishes; the "Visita ng Sto. Cristo" celebrated its 131st anniversary on May 3, 2012, with a pontifical Mass co-celebrated with its mother parish of St. Augustine's Church; the Mass in this Visita is being celebrated by the Team Ministry of Saint Augustine Parish headed by Msgr. Andres S. Valera H. P. SLL. E. V, together with Rev. Fr. Edgardo Toribio, JR. Rev. Fr. Joseph Franz T. Dizon and Rev Fr. Edgardo D. Abano; the St. Augustine Church of Baliuag and the Sub-Parish Church of Santo Cristo both belong to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Malolos; the Bisita ng Santo Kristo is under Saint Augustine Parish Church jurisdiction. During the Spanish colonization period of the 1880s, the settlement, baryo of Baliuag, had no name until it was called "Santo Cristo."

The Feast Day was celebrated annually on May 3, led by a "President" of the Fiesta. Brother Juan was the first, while Kabisera Andres Ramos was the caretaker of the Statue or Holy Image, according to writer Alejandro Fernando, they chose the "Hubad" Kristo as their Patron due to poverty. Since and pilgrims from many provinces have visited the miraculous statue of the Chapel on Fridays and Sundays. More than 12 local and visitor's faith healers conducted regular Friday spiritual healing there. Nipa leaves and bamboo were used to build the small Kapilya. During the American regime, Jeremiah James Harty filed a suit in the Court of First Instance of Bulacan, claiming title of the Santo Cristo, Bulacan Parish Church property on 1909; the prelate included in the civil case, the properties where the San Jose and Makinabang Parish Churches were built upon. The defendants filed an answer by way of opposition thereto; the residents alleging, inter alia, that the subject real estate is owned by them by virtue of a Deed of Donation signed by Don Julian Buyson.

This Spanish Mestizo was a philanthropist who bestowed upon the natives of the Santo Cristo neighborhood the lot where an "ermita" or Bisita was built for religious and liturgical needs of the townsfolk, per a notarial Document dated August 1, 1881. The condition specified in the public document that the chapel and school built upon the lot must be used by and for the neighborhood residents for devotional purposes. Further, the Deed required the administration of the property by a) Hermano Mayor, b) Mayor domo and c) Secretaryo. Willie Buyson Villarama, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's former chief of staff, from Bacolor, Pampanga stated that "his great-great-great grandfather is Don Julian Buyson, who served as a gobernadorcillo, xxx"; the CFI of Malolos Auxiliary Judge Buenaventura Reyes dismissed the Archbishop's complaint for recovery of possession and title. In 1930, the Bulacan Court ordered the Registry of Property to issue Original Certificates of Titles to the 3 donated properties in the names of the 3 emitas or kapilyas: Ermita de Santo Cristo, Ermita de San Jose Parish Churches of Santo Cristo and Concepcion, Bulacan.

The people acquired the adjacent lot where they built the grandstand and 4 comfort rooms. On its 100th anniversary on May 3, 1981, the Santo Cristo Parish Church was inaugurated under the leadership of Mauricio Pascual. In 2012, Santo Cristo Church is presently under the care and administration of the Parish Church Pastoral Council of Barangay Santo Cristo, Bulacan. Baliwag: Then and Now, by Roland E.
