To see what kind of articles we post, visit our Submissions page. is closely connected to but the two differ. updates entries to reflect new developments and opinions. doesn’t edit articles once they’re posted, unless requested by an author.


Earthpages in 2006

The site began in 1997, an optimistic era before 9/11 and the winter. The web was new and many believed it could change the world.

One day while walking to the library, I got the idea to develop an interfaith, global-village style web site, where different kinds of articles, perspectives and opinions could find expression.

Since then, Earthpages has seen many changes. But we still believe that dialogue can make a difference.

  1. We’re currently in transistion from the ‘old’ earthpages to the ‘new’ earthpages. Mostly the site content will be the same but comments, such as this one, will be incredibly easy to post and read.

    We’re very enthusiastic about this change and hope you will be too!

  13. I can so relate to the comment you posted about your computer, I am working wih an older computer too. When my first one died on me, this one was given to me.its a Windows 7, slow. I been mainly working on a tablet, that not good, to do, I heard. It is all I have right now until I up grade. It makes it harder to edit.

  14. There are things you can do to speed up a windows 7 computer. That’s actually what I use on my “good” computer. Two things that slow down computers are:

    – not enuf RAM and
    – weak/slow processor ability

    You can usually tweak for more free RAM by limiting startup items and stopping or disabling any unnecessary processes. If more people did a bit of Googling (research) they would probably buy a lot less new computers!

    Let me know if you want to try, have any specific questions. Always good to *back up any important files* before messing with your computer!
