Instant Homepage


I developed an instant homepage in new Google Page facilities. This is the link to it. Why I call it "instant" because Google page creator is like an instant coffee maker.

JSTOR

I was looking for a paper published in 1955 that means 51 years ago! I knew it is so unlikely to find it on the web. However, I tried once and fortuitously found it in a few minutes. The site that I used for this purpose was JSTOR. I would suggest you at least try it once. It is free.
