What’s with the Squares?

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am


You’ve probably seen them, puzzled over them or perhaps just let them go. They infect web pages galore, but you can find them in chat rooms or anywhere you may encounter computers from overseas. They’re the mystery squares. Let me explain what’s going on.

New Years Resolution

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I just reviewed a list of popular New Years resolutions here in the US. What amazes me is that most, if not all, of the items in the list center around the topic of self-control. Indeed, “bad” things that affect us greatly represent the consequences of our own actions or inactions. That applies to your computer as well.

Predictions for 2009

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

Once upon a time, I ended my newsletter, the Weekly Wambooli Salad, with an annual prediction of things to coming in the new year. Generally, I was wrong, but that didn’t stop me. So here I go again!

PorchCam Year in Review

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

The year 2008 is drawing to a merciful close. The last few days of the year are truly meaningless; nothing happens, nothing gets done, nothing, nothing.

Making Labels

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Microsoft Word has the ability to make labels. You can make a sheet of identical labels or merge a list of names into different labels. I explain it all in my Word For Dummies books. Even so, I don’t use Word to make labels. In fact, I just did my Christmas list using a program I’ve had for years. It’s great. It’s free. It’s from the Avery Label people.

Wambooli Changes

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I’ve been messing with the Wambooli web site recently. It seems like I tend to mess with the site whenever I’m between projects. Actually, I’m kind of happy to be between projects at Christmastime since it’s awful to be under deadline pressure this time of year.
