Relax. You're In The Clubhouse Now.
On the digital sea known as the Internet, this is your harbor.
You've got questions. I've got answers.
This is where you can learn tips and tricks that will help you quickly and easily navigate the seemingly dark and murky online waters.
Net newbie or experienced surfer -- all are welcome here.
If you're like me, you see the Internet as a tool and a toy. You're amazed, amused and, in some cases, alarmed by what's available online and what you can do online.
This website will help you understand the Internet and help you master the online world.
You can learn a little about me to see what experience and credentials I bring as your online guide. E-mail is always welcome -- in fact, it's encouraged because your questions help shape the content and usefulness of this website.
You'll find a repository of newspaper columns I've written over the years, dating back to the days when going online meant having your computer dial a long distance number to access a text-based Bulletin Board Service (BBS) and download data at the incredible speed of 300 bps (today's modems are designed for 56,000 bps).
The Net Library is a handpicked collection of the best the Internet has to offer -- the only websites you'll need to find what you're looking for in a variety of categories. The library grows and thrives based on input from you.
Net 101 is a beginner's guide to various aspects of the online world. From using search engines to building simple web pages, you're likely to find many of the answers to your questions here.
The Club Stuff section features downloadable membership cards and other club features that may prove useful to you during your Net travels.
The goal of all this is to make sure going online remains a clear, simple and fun thing to do. It's been that way for me over the years. I want you to have the same experience.
So, relax. You're in the clubhouse now.
