I've made the transition from Netscape from Mac.Mail and I like Mac.Mail more.

Of course, it helps to be a Mac person.

What a coincidence, the end of the line for Netscape and then in today's Memphis newspaper this story.

<span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">Barksdales give to Ole Miss
Ex-Netscape head donates $12.8 million to alma mater

Sunday, January 13, 2008

With the help of former Netscape president and CEO James L. Barksdale, the University of Mississippi is nearing its goal to raise $200 million through the university's "MomentUM" campaign.

Barksdale and his wife, Donna, announced a $12.8 million donation to the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College.

"Through this gift, we will expand the range of educational opportunities provided by the Honors College," Barksdale said in a prepared statement from Ole Miss.

The donation is the Mississippi grad's fourth major gift to the Honors College, which he and his late wife, Sally, founded in 1996 with a $5.4 million grant. She died in 2003 after a five-month battle with colon cancer.

The Honors College, which is home to some 670 academically outstanding undergraduates, plans to reach a maximum enrollment of 1,000 students.

The donation brings the total raised through the university-wide "MomentUM" campaign to more than $160 million. The money will fund scholarships and be used to build new facilities and colleges on the campus. The campaign began four years ago and ends in December.

The Honors College will use the Barksdales' new contribution to increase the number of scholarships from 14 to 21, expand course offerings and increase staff over the next five years.

"This recent gift ... will enable us to continue to attract the state's most high-performing students and provide them with a vibrant center of academic excellence," said university Chancellor Robert Khayat.

The Barksdales have given generously to charitable endeavors in Mississippi. In 2000, the couple donated $100 million to establish The Barksdale Reading Institute to battle illiteracy in the state.

Donations such as the Barksdales' are critical in the continued growth and expansion of the Honors College, Barbara Lago, director of media and public relations for Ole Miss, said Saturday.

"Without this donation we wouldn't be able to offer the range of courses," she said. "It's a phenomenal program, and we want to get as many bright Mississippi kids in there as we can."
