==> 1. --- Tom's Thoughts ... "Moving Day"
Are you still learning to be patient with yourself? It's the
hardest thing in the world for some of us...
As you spend time with your computer, the best thing we can
suggest is that you simply "take it easy". The world isn't
going any slower, but you can choose to take things a day
at a time.
We appreciate your signing up for membership. I trust you're
finding the tutorials, articles, and educational material FUN
above all else.
Everybody wants to make more money. And folks are flocking to
the Internet, knowing it's going to make them rich. Well,
don't get caught in that trap. Just a warning... it's never as
easy as they say it is!
Like anything else, education is the key to success. In the
dirt world, and in cyberspace. Above all, it should be FUN.
Some interesting tutorials in this issue... keep reading. :-)
Until next time,
A server computer lives a life of servitude. It's sole
purpose in life is to live as a waiter. It just sits there
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year after year doing nothing
but giving information to the browsers who request it. A
noble task, 'tis true. For without the server... we'd have
no Internet, and no web pages to view.
This device lets you connect your computer to the Internet.
It stands for "Modulate-Demodulate" which is very much like
a human interpreter, who listens to the foreign tongue, and
then speaks in the native tongue. The modem's job is translate
a signal from sound into numbers. That screeching noise you
hear is translated into numbers, or a "digital" communication
fit for the Internet. The numbers are moved about, and it
all comes out looking like a web page or email when it's
finished. The easiest way to describe this: "It's magic! :-)

==> 2. Tutorial: "Easy Web Site Locater"
Surely you visit web sites that you want to visit again, or
think, "Now there's some valauble information." So let's
make it super easy for you to visit again. We'll show you how to
make a push button link to our site, or any site at all,
or to any page within a site.
Internet Explorer users:
1. Be sure your Links buttons are active. On the Menu line,
click View, put your mouse over Toolbars, and be sure
that Links is checked.
2. Visit a web page. When you're at the site you want to
create the Link button for, put your mouse cursor on the
blue "e" or the icon next to the URL (the www stuff) and
click, hold down the mouse button, and drag the URL out
of the address bar, dropping it onto the links area.
A new link will appear, with the title of the page in it.
3. Change the title! If it's too long, or doesn't say what
you want it to say, RIGHT click the link button, and select
Rename. Type the name you want for this button, and click
OK. It's renamed!
To visit the site next time you're on-line, just click the
button... and the page loads. You don't have to type anything!
There's a link icon to the left of the location field. Drag
this link and drop it to create a link button. The principles
are the same between the two browsers, but the details are
a bit different. To rename a link, go to Window > Bookmarks >
Edit Bookmarks. RIGHT click the bookmark you want to work
with, and select Properties.
Type in a new name, click OK, close the window, and you're
done. It's a bit more involved with Netscape, but like
anything, once you've done it a few times it's old hat.
Have fun. Create instant links and don't bother typing!
------ Don't be Shy - Unzip with Confidence!
Some Zip programs are frustratingly confusing to use. But it's
essential to have one if you're downloading stuff from the Net.
'Unzip Wizard' is so simple it's impossible to go wrong. That's
because it's specifically designed with Newbies in mind. And
The Newbie Club has arranged a special discount for you at this
page. So now you can save AND unzip without embarrassment!
This is a stunner!
-------------- "MYTH BUSTER!" ---------------

are all those mysterious keys on you keyboard? Learning to use
them will absolutely TRANSFORM your PC experience - and your
creativity. Your keyboard was designed to achieve more than
your mouse could ever even hope to attempt. Yet most people are
never shown HOW! Keyboard MAGIC! by The Newbie Club blows away
the Myths for ever -and opens up a world you never knew existed!
What an eye-opener! http://newbieclub.com/keyboard/?
==> 3. Tutorial: "Organizing Made Easy"
One of the biggest problems facing new computer users is losing
stuff. The computer is like a bottomless pit -- you can just
keep adding info to it, and if you aren't careful, you'll
never find anything!
The whole concept of "My Computer", "My Folders", "My Stuff",
and "My Music" is pretty easy to understand, right? We can
all relate to it. It's mine!
Use this to your advantage.
Create new folders in the My Documents folder. Name them
whatever turns you on. "My Recipes". Or how about "My Downloads"
or "My Newbie Club Newsletters". (You may want to save your
newsletters in a file in your email client, of course.)
Want to access something at any time? Just open My Documents,
and there are all of your folders, smiling up at you, labeled
and ready for service.
If you download music, there's already a folder named "My
Music". Create new folders inside, to organize yourself.
The computer is the ultimate organizer. And it's the ultimate
Now, how do you create new folders? Open My Documents and
look at the Menu line... you should see the word "File". Click
File, point to New with our cursor, and click Folder. It'll
be right at the top.
You'll see a new folder appear, with its name area all blank
and blinking, ready for you to start typing. Type a name...
spaces are fine, and the name can real long if you want. The
limit is right at 254 characters... maybe 255. The precise
number escapes me.
Once done, click off the folder, and the name is set. And
you're done. Now you can store your stuff there whenever
==> 4. Linda's Office Corner: "The Need to Know"
OK. Here's the scenario: You have been assigned to supervise
a group of people to update the Employee Manual. Now your boss
wants to know how long it is, how long has it been since anyone
revised it, when was it first created, who worked on it last
and how much time has been spent on it.

to see how this all gets taken care of in record time!
