Dr. Bill's Superdisk:

Hello ASL Heroes!

Have I got an amazing deal for you.

I used to offer over a dozen different CDs with all kinds of ASL resources with a total cost of over $100 or more.  But now that almost everyone has access to a computer with a DVD player it just makes sense to put the content from all those CDs onto one DVD "super disk!"

You can now pick up one of these gems for the amazingly low price of just $19.95: 

   Superdisk ($19.95)

Dear Dr. Vicars-

Would you mind sharing briefly what is included in the CD?

Thanks so kindly!!

Dear ______,
Sure :)
First of all, it is now a DVD. 
It used to be a CD, but since DVDs can hold so much more information I decided to consolidate a bunch of different CDs into one "Superdisk" (DVD).
Most of the former CDs used to sell for $20 each, and there are over 5 CD disks worth of files on the "Superdisk" so you get over $100 of ASL-related material for just $20.  Why such a low price?  Well, gee, it is just a piece of round plastic in a paper envelope. I burn them in my little studio here and Belinda (the shipping Department / wife) sends them out via US Postal Service. It doesn't come in a fancy package or anything.  But if you'd like -- I could doodle something on the cover and charge you more. Let me know.

Ann writes to ask: "Can I use this disk without an internet connection?"

Hello :)
Yes, you can use the "Superdisk" on a computer without being connected to the internet. 
The disk does use your computer's browser program, but the disk doesn't need the internet nor an internet connection.
(But you can't use it on a TV.  You need a computer.)
Basically what I did is I downloaded my various web resources as well as some of my teaching resources and stuck 'em all on a disk for people to use when they are not "online."
The disk thus consists of "web pages" that are running off of your local computer's disk player.  Occasionally you might find a link on the disk that tries to take you to an online page. If so, just press your back button. I'd say 98% of the pages stay right there on your local computer.
