|About this web site: n2prise.org
|August 22, 2004: I have been
working on the web since 1998 when I first created a web site for a company I worked with
in those days. The look and feel of this web site follows that one. I
wrote most of the technical articles there.
|Let's talk about this site. I have wanted to get my own
domain name for some time. You probably noticed by now that I am a fan of Star Trek.
I was in college when Star Trek was first on NBC network television. I have
remained a fan of all the Star Trek spin-off television series and movies since
1966. When I first got a personalized FLORIDA license plate, I wanted to pay homage
to my favorite entertainment. Only hard core fans would understand NCC1701 as a license plate number. I thought about Doctor
McCoy being from Georgia, and so am I. What happened next was to decide how to use
the SEVEN letters permitted on the license plate to produce a phonetic sounding acronym
that would say ENTERPRISE. Now, use your imagination and a bit of Georgia Southern
Drawl, and say it "N-2-PRISE." Now you know how I got N2PRISE on my FLORIDA and Tennessee license plates.
|As for finally getting a domain name, well some guy in England
must have seen my postings on the web over the years with my email address and said that
looks good and took www.n2prise.com but he isn't
doing anything with it. As of May 18, 2010, it appears to have been abandoned. I
took the web address www.n2prise.org for this web
site. In 2011, I bought the web address www.n2prise.com
and pointed to this web site.
|And of course, the name on the side of my airplane is ENTERPRISE, and the N-number registration is N2PZ. I chose
that one because of what appears in the opening credits of each episode of the Star Trek
"ENTERPRISE" television show. When the main titles show, they have scenes
of famous ships and airplanes. One of those ships is the old English sailing ship ENTERPRIZE. Now you know where the Z came from.
|And as if that is not enough, the opening words of the theme song
of the new Enterprise television show say a lot about my project:
|"It's been a long road, getting from
there to here."
"It's been a long time, but my time is finally near."
"And I will see my dream come alive at last. I will touch the sky."
"And they're not gonna hold me down no more, not they're not gonna change my

"I'm going where my heart will take me."
"I've got faith to believe. I can do anything."
"I've got strength of the soul. An no one's gonna bend or break me."
"I can reach any star. I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the
