Bookmarks for aj ward

This link list is intended to provide the broadest scope on philately that I can find on the 'net (limited only by my knowledge, imagination and time).
.
And further: This file is a Netscape BOOKMARK.HTM format file created with Netscape 4.05 and may be FREELY downloaded for personal use.
Best dealt with by:
(if you have Netscape's Communicator: open the "User Profile Manager" and create a new user account - then simplly replace 'bookmark.htm' by deleting the one created and placing a copy of this file in that directory; naming this file 'bookmark.htm' of course)
OR - there's the 'hard' way....
1. exiting your browser
2. copy your bookmark/favorites file to a safe location.
3. rename YOUR bookmark.htm file (or whatever it's name) to .... (whatever you like)
4. copy THIS file (xx#.htm - unless you renamed it) to the same directory as 'bookmark.htm' etc. ... (convert the file format if necessary - if all else fails - just load it like any ol' webpage.htm(l) file)
5. restart your browser
(COPY it first - if you answer a dialog question wrong Netscape wipes it out! ) - it's crude but. .... and as time goes by I hope to annotate the listings with address/contact info, philatelic stories etc. ...and there's conversion software 'out there' for MSIE and other browsers out there ...... (let me know what you know on this... )
To read the descriptions easily just load it like a regular webpage! - ENJOY!!! aj 1/15/99

International Catalog Numbers for Postage Stamps effort
StampFinder Image Database Project
StampFinder has begun a project to create an image catalog which will encompass all philatelic items, whether postage stamps, revenue stamps, or postal stationary. Using the USID numbering protocol, the system will allow stamps to be displayed by country, by topic or by varieties. Individuals interested in supplying images from their collection for this project are invited to contact us at usid@stampfinder.com for further information.
World Postal Issues Database (WPID) material available on 26 countries & British No. America
mined 1/99
Stamp databases for 26 countries (AND several on varieties AND topics) & British North America (data up to 1986-1993, depending on country)
The World Postal Issues Database (WPID) had some success although it is still a long way from providing philatelic data for all the countries of the world. The work in gathering this data is both time consuming and tiresome and volunteers are inclined to "burn-out" very quickly. Each of the volunteers who did complete any potion of this task deserve our heartfelt thanks. Others are needed to continuethe task.
Please be aware that this is data only--it is not an inventory or other computer program. The data needs to be imported into a database program such as Access, Approach, dBase, Foxpro, Paradox etc., and the user should have enough knowledge of these programs to create forms and reports. Also the data has not been updated in a number of years and no issues after 1992 are included for any of the countries listed.
An alternate site for the WPID data is in Finland. ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/doc/mail/stamps/wpid

Indo-China, French (Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam 1889-1945) - all issues - outstanding site
Indochina (Indo-chine) was under French control from 1889-1945, area consisting of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. All the postage stamps used in Indochina were issues of French stamps with "INDOCHINE" imprint. There was only one souvenir sheet issued in Indochina, Colonial Arts Exhibition Issue on April 15, 1937. Indochina stamps are relative cheaper than other Asian countries' stamps. I believe Indochina will be a hot collecting area with in two years. 1/99 - Ben Sheng, bsheng@uwyo.edu

ASCAT is a young and dynamic organization worldwide recognized together with FIP and IFSDA as an able partner of UPU for the solution of the most important philatelic problems. ...
After the success of various important initiatives, approved by the UPU, such as the "Code of Ethics" which received great acclaim in the international field, ASCAT has now undertaken an active campaign against the flood of new issues, particularly those produced by territories, provinces or islands which are an integral part of the territory of a sovereign country and for which there is no postal justification whatsoever.
ASCAT with its 86 associates in 28 countries is a small "rotary": a potential force allowing our organization to face with optimism all the problems of Philately.

Linn's: Reference: Stamp Issuing Entities
Since Great Britain issued the Penny Black and Two-Pence Blue in 1840, postage stamps have been issued in the name of more than 700 geopolitical entities. This has resulted in an array of stamps that may bewilder the beginning stamp collector, especially the collector whose study of history has somehow not included such areas as Alaouites or Trebizond.
In the following listing, we have attempted to provide a compilation of the nations, provinces, cities, armies and other entities that have, at one point or another, issued postage stamps.

"... Because of ... varied rules and regulations, it is best to write to a postal administration before sending any form of payment. To learn more about an administration's or agency's policies and what it offers, write to it at the listed address. When writing to an overseas postal administration, it is wise to include an International Reply Coupon (IRC) for return answer. IRCs should be availableat local post offices. ...
... Unfortunately, for some of the new or re-emerging countries, no addresses are known. Many of these countries do not have philatelic bureaus or a special service for collectors.

The URL-minder: Your Own Personal Web Robot!
Enter a URL (the URL-minder will send you an automatically-generated e-mail message whenever the resource at this URL changes from its current contents, until you cancel your registration):
The URL-minder keeps track of one Web page, gif, or other resource at a time. It will not keep track of all the Web pages linked to the page you submit. A separate URL must be submitted for every distinct page you want the URL-minder to track for you. The URL-minder tracks the actual HTML markup, binary contents, or ascii contents of the URL you submit. If an HTML page includes a GIF or JPEG graphic, the URL-minder will inform you when the reference to the graphic changes. If you want to know when the actual content of a binary graphic file changes, you must submit the URL to the binary graphic itself. The URL-minder currently checks on your registered URL's at least once per week, and will inform you if it fails to retrieve your registered URL after trying twice.

URL Mind-it: For Webmasters
Add FREE Mind-it to Your Website in 5 Minutes
Thousands of Webmasters are using Mind-it's "change detection" technology to provide their site with a free automatic update service requiring very little work and no monetary investment. All you do is copy the HTML source code for one of the Mind-it buttons shown later on this page. You do not need to have any special CGI programs and there is no special set-up.
This button lets your users sign up for the Mind-it service from a form on your page and NetMind runs the service for you. Users register their page by simply entering an email address and clicking on the "Mind-it" button. The form automatically sends the correct URL to the Mind-it database. Your users' membership in the free service is subject to NetMind's User Terms and Conditions, which among other things promise the user privacy protection and no spamming as a result of this service
The URL-minder: Your Own Personal Web Robot!
Enter a URL (the URL-minder will send you an automatically-generated e-mail message whenever the resource at this URL changes from its current contents, until you cancel your registration):
The URL-minder keeps track of one Web page, gif, or other resource at a time. It will not keep track of all the Web pages linked to the page you submit. A separate URL must be submitted for every distinct page you want the URL-minder to track for you. The URL-minder tracks the actual HTML markup, binary contents, or ascii contents of the URL you submit. If an HTML page includes a GIF or JPEG graphic, the URL-minder will inform you when the reference to the graphic changes. If you want to know when the actual content of a binary graphic file changes, you must submit the URL to the binary graphic itself. The URL-minder currently checks on your registered URL's at least once per week, and will inform you if it fails to retrieve your registered URL after trying twice.
