On Wednesday morning, hundreds of highly touted high school football players across the country dusted off the nearest fax machine to send their signed letters of intent to college football programs, from powerhouses to smaller schools. These commitments bring hope to every program every winter, but the reality is that projecting how high school prospects will pan out can at times be a total crapshoot. Sure, there are players such as South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who is expected to be a top-five draft pick in May's NFL draft, who met the immense hype of being a top prospect.

So many of today's communication electronic devices are acquiring the ability to connect to the Internet. The telephone does; it's called Voice Over Internet Protocol or VoIP. Several digital camera models can go online. Television devices such as the SlingBox let you see what's being displayed on your TV from anywhere you can get Internet access. So it was inevitable that we'd eventually see a fax machine go online, too. The UX-B800SE BroadbandFax from Sharp Corp. is a normal progression of that technology.

There is noise all around Elvis Dumervil. Terrell Suggs is singing to no one in particular. Lardarius Webb is playfully yelling at a teammate. The sound of a whistle followed by the boom of a coach's voice is heard from an adjacent field. About 50 players are spread out over two fields when the Ravens' newest defensive star walks out of the team facility, stops on the edge of the turf, takes a knee and bows his head in prayer. "I think this year more than anything, I'm at ease," Dumervil said.

It's difficult to imagine that the fax machine's creative potential is anything more than its usual workload of producing illegible characters on curly, high-glare, non-recyclable paper.Michael Starke, however, has expanded the possibilities of this office fixture far beyond the copier room.Starke, of A.K.A. Photographers in Ellicott City, used a fax machine to create "Yosemite Valley -- Afternoon Storm," which has been accepted into the Yosemite Renaissance VII, an annual international juried competition established to promote public awareness of the importance of preserving state and national parks.

If you're setting up an office, you need a fax machine.This advice sounds prehistoric to Web heads and Net nuts. They figure electronic mail is faster, cheaper and more powerful than fax. Even if forced to receive and reply to a fax from some Neanderthal - defined as a person without an e-mail address - they figure they'll stick to the fax-modem in their computer, which can send and receive faxes without ever involving paper.But, in practice, I've rarely found any software more frustrating than fax programs.

The familiar gathering of employees around the water cooler to exchange the latest delicious gossip and to mutter seditious remarks about management is an outdated, unfair stereotype.After all, it's almost the year 2000 and practically everything in the workplace has a futuristic spin to it. For instance, everyone knows workers do not gather around the water cooler, which has dried up as a meeting place.Instead, they gather around the fax machine. They stand there and talk for very worthy reasons:They sincerely want to be part of their office's informal and instantaneous communication system no worker can afford to ignore, according to advice from the best-informed career counselors; and, of course, to exchange the latest delicious DTC gossip (now upgraded and known as networking)

That big collective sigh you heard late Sunday came from Ravens Nation, which was in full-scale panic mode and exhausting the region's supply of Xanax until the news of Elvis Dumervil's deal came down. What a heist Ozzie Newsome pulled off, something on the scale of "Ocean's 11," only without a casino involved. Let's see, the Ravens get one of the best pass rushers in the league to replace Paul Kruger, who pulled off his own heist when he got the Cleveland Browns to pay him $40 million over five years.

The telephone landed its own gallery show first, way back in 1968. People on one end of the curly-corded land line carried out instructions in art-making issued by folks at the other end. Later - much later - came a retrospective devoted to the graph- ics and snapshots created by the gadget's annoying, chirpy little cousin, the cell phone. Both types of talking machine are still, God help us, very much in use in modern society. But a national traveling show opening this weekend at the Contemporary Museum celebrates another communication device that is on its way out: the fax machine.

The Q: While technology keeps making it easier for people to reach us by phone, more of us would prefer that it didn't. Several questions recently have focused on reducing calls from charities and telemarketers and how the National Do Not Call Registry applies. Reader Chris Thomas of Phoenix, Md., wants to know, "Is there some equivalent for unwanted faxes? We have a fax machine for our home businesses and we get unwanted faxes a lot - especially in the middle of the night or early morning."

OTTAWA, Canada -- You're not exactly a Luddite, but you're far from being a technophile. You realize high-tech is here to stay, and that you have to adjust. But it doesn't mean you have to accept it. Truth be known, you'd rather stick with early 20th-century technology. All you really want and need are the visible signs of technical literacy - not the actual knowledge. That's why the following products may be just right for you. The PVC. Everyone's expected to have a personal computer today.

Good morning. Or is it?If you work, your mornings are probably full of little challenges: picking out the right clothes, scarfing down breakfast, taking kids to day care, and that best-loved of all a.m. rituals, commuting.There are people who don't have to worry about such things, and, no, they're not lottery winners or Trappist monks. They're telecommuters, gainfully employed and socially adjusted men and women who just happen to spend their workdays at home, plying their trade via computer, telephone and fax machine.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -Even judges have momentary lapses of judgment. But it's a pretty safe bet in this unpredictable election that Judge Terry P. Lewis will think twice before giving out his fax number again with CNN in the room. About midnight Friday, having just received the Florida Supreme Court's order to manually recount ballots statewide before a Tuesday deadline to name electors, Lewis set the case on a fast track. The Leon County Circuit Court judge ordered the recounts of more than 40,000 undercounted ballots to start immediately.
