Seeing if some user is at his computer and reading email: you can't. But if
you send him/her an email and (s)he answers, you'll know that (s)he will have
been online at some point between your mail and the reply.
Seeing if some friend of yours is chatting somewhere: go to the same chat room
and see who's online.
Seeing if some server is online and accepting connections: try to connect.
Seeing if your modem is online: that depends on OS and modem driver. Under
Windows you can check that connection by clicking its icon in "Control Panel
=> Network". Under Linux you can use the "ifconfig" command with no parameters
-- but only as root. In the latter case only "connected" devices will be
Seeing if your browser is online: first check whether your modem is online. If
it is, check near the ends of Firefox's status bar. There may be a widget
there that appears (depending on which theme you're using) as a cord and plug
with or without a red X over it, as two plugs plugged into each other or not,
etc. Hover your mouse over that widget: it will tell you (after a few seconds)
whether you are online at the moment. (Note: That widget may be a function of
the "Work Offline" extension but I'm not sure: I have that extension in Fx2
but not in Sm-trunk and both show the widget.)
The Soviet pre-eminence in chess can be traced to the average Russian's
readiness to brood obsessively over anything, even the arrangement of
some pieces of wood. Indeed, the Russians' predisposition for quiet
reflection followed by sudden preventive action explains why they led
the field for many years in both chess and ax murders. It is well
known that as early as 1970, the U.S.S.R., aware of what a defeat at
Reykjavik would do to national prestige, implemented a vigorous program
of preparation and incentive. Every day for an entire year, a team of
psychologists, chess analysts and coaches met with the top three
Russian grand masters and threatened them with a pointy stick. That
these tactics proved fruitless is now a part of chess history and a
further testament to the American way, which provides that if you want
something badly enough, you can always go to Iceland and get it from
