The Better Bow

You only think you know how to tie your shows.  The better bow unties with a simple tug, just like to soon-to-be outdated model you have on your shoes right now.  But the difference is - it doesn't jiggle loose!  Learn it and you'll never go back, I promise.

As the illustrations show, there's only one crucial difference between this knot and the old style.  Instead of taking a single turn around the middle of the loops, you'll take two.  Be sure to wrap both these turns around the end of your finger.  When you withdraw your finger, the "hole" it leaves is the place where you push the second loop through.

[ CGIWrap Error: Script Execution Failed

CGIWrap Error: Script Execution Failed

CGIWrap encountered an error while attempting to execute this script:

Error Message: Permission denied
Error Number: 13
This message usually indicates there is a problem with the script itself. Often this indicates either that the #! line of the script is incorrect, or the script was uploaded in binary mode instead of ascii mode. Check to make sure that the script does not have control-M's at the end of every line. That will prevent it from executing. An easy fix that takes care of this most of the time is to put '#!/.../perl --' instead of '#!/.../perl' on the first line of the script.

If you are not the owner of this script, please forward this error and the URL that caused it to the script owner. That is often the component in the URL right after /cgiwrap/.
