Learn how to drive your computer

(Continued)

MOORE —

The Internet is also loaded with places to continue your computer education. Here’s a short list of websites that you may find helpful:

· Hosted by retired chemistry professor Vic Laurie, vlaurie.com has many good articles covering a multitude of subjects.

· Brought to you by the Goodwill Community Foundation, the same folks that are behind your local Goodwill stores, gfclearnfree.org/computer has an impressive lineup of computer classes covering more subjects than I can list here. I like this website a lot.

· The website customguide.com/quick_references.htm has some really cool “quick reference” guides that you can download and print. The guides cover a variety of Microsoft and Apple products, as well as Adobe Acrobat, Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and QuickBooks. The guides are very well thought out and handy for folks (like me) that just can’t memorize every command for every program on earth.

Using a computer is a lot like driving a car: if not done properly, you can be a danger to others, as well as yourself. You’ll be a lot happier once you learn how to drive.

Dave Moore has been performing computer consulting, repairs, security and networking in Oklahoma since 1984. He also teaches computer safety workshops for public and private organizations. He can be reached at 405-919-9901 or www.davemoorecomputers.com.
