About exHeurikon

Hello and welcome to exHeurikon.com. This is intended as a gathering place, an online community, for those of us who used to work at the late, great, Heurikon Corporation in Madison, WI.

Please explore the site and try out the features. Here is some more information about the services we can provide and the features of this website.


Email Offerings

There are two basic email related services we can provide:

Email Accounts We can give you an email account with the domain @exheurikon.com, using the full gmail interface. If you don't already have a personal email address you'd like to use, this is for you. If you'd like one, please contact us.

Mailing List We're also maintaining a mailing list of ex-Heurikon folks at everyone@exheurikon.com. You must be a member (with any email address you like) to be able to post to it. If you'd like to be on this, please contact us.


Website Features

Here are some of the exHeurikon website features. These are all easily accessed using the menu bar at the top of any page on this site:

People See the People link on the top menu to get a list of all members of this site. If you're not logged in, you'll just see names. Once you're logged in, you will also be able to see email addresses so you can easily get in contact with others.

Forums We have set up some forums where you can post topics and have discussions. For now, there is a General forum which all people can read and a Private forum where only exHeurikon users can see and post topics.

Contact If you'd like to get in touch with the admins of this site, please use the Contact form.

Register - If you're not logged in, you should see a Create New Account link on the left menu.

Password Resets - If you forgot your password, type in your username and request a password reset. An email will be sent to the email address on file with the subject "Replacement login information for". Click on the link provided.  From there you will be directed to a page to enter your new password.  If you do not receive this email, please check your spam filter software to see if it was quarantined. 


Creating Content

This is up to you, the users of this site. Once you have an account, you should see a "Create content" link on the menu at left. Any user can do this, and I encourage you to! There are various options for creating content:

Story - This is sort of like a blog post. It will be automatically posted to the front page of the site, and other users will be able to comment on it. If you've got some recollection you'd like to share from your days at Heurikon, this is a great way to do it.

Forum Topics - This is accessed via the "Forums" menu on the top and is more of a free form discussion. If you'd like to start a conversation on a particular topic, this is probably the best way to do it. Active topics will show up on the sidebar on the left.

Poll - If you'd like to pose a question to the user base, this is how. This will, like a story, automatically show up on the front page of the site.

Inline Images - For stories and forum topics, you can attach images and display them inline. Just use the File Attachments menu at the bottom of to upload your images. To put them inline in your actual story or forum post, use the tag NOT FOUND: filename.jpg (substituting whatever the name of the image is).
