This week’s email newsletter articles are:
- A First Look at Eudora OSE
I got a surprise this week. I’d been keeping tabs on the new version of Eudora, which is based on the Thunderbird email program from the Mozilla Foundation along with the user interface from the Eudora program that I have used for years. This week, long-time subscriber Clif Sipe wrote to let me know that the new version had finally been released as Eudora OSE v1.0.
- My Terry’s Computer Tips RSS Feed
Another long-time subscriber, Ed Pilarczyk, wrote me with a different kind of problem. He’s not the only one who’s had it, so maybe I need to mention the issue and the solution.
This Week Online:
With my new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site, I now publish articles individually rather than as an on-line issue. That also means that I can link directly to the articles, as I’ve done below:
- CSS Book Review – "Smashing CSS" by Eric Meyer
When I ordered a new Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) book the other night from Amazon.com, little did I realize that it was a brand new book. I recognized the author’s name (Eric Meyer) and knew he had written a number of popular books on CSS. I also had recently purchased another book in the "Smashing" […]
- New Eudora OSE eMail Program Released
An expanded version of the Eudora OSE article in my email newsletter this week.
- What Does Chkdsk Do in Windows?
Long-time subscriber Rudy wrote this week to ask a question about the Windows program "chkdsk." The name alone tells me that Rudy isn’t running Windows 7, as it’s no longer known by that name (it’s found via Computer (My Computer) > selecting the hard drive to check > Properties > Tools > Error Checking).
- Most of my newsletter and site work this week has been posting older articles to the web site, as you can see in the list of articles below…
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
I love the new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to the Genesis Theme Framework.
The following are new individual articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally posted in my email or online newsletters.
As above, these are now direct links to the individual articles…
- She Wants a Netbook…
I recently had a series of emails with subscriber Ed McDowell, in which he was asking about how well 64-bit Windows 7 handled software that was written for earlier versions of Windows. We also wrote back and forth about email programs under Windows 7. He followed that with a new question: My spouse wants a […]
- Using Older Software With 64-bit Windows 7
Whether you’re buying a new computer or upgrading to Windows 7 on your existing computer, an important question is "will my software work?"
- Computer Repairs That Include Replacing the Motherboard
After one of my recent articles mentioned problems with restoring Windows XP to different motherboards, reader Bob from Australia wrote to ask: Terry, I have a computer with a P4P800-VM motherboard whch partially failed a year ago — there was no video output. I then fitted an NVIDIA video card to get the computer working […]
- Making an Incremental Backup with Acronis True Image Home
Acronis True Image Home 2010 shows an icon in the Windows Status Bar when it’s running, but not at other times. That icon allows you to stop a backup, but not to start one. So, how do you start a backup?
- Saving Bookmarks and Favorites for Portable Use with Other Computers
Subscriber Suzanne Veilleux wrote with a great question I hadn’t considered before this: Hi Terry, Do you have an article that explains how to import SOME Firefox bookmarks, (not all of them) into Internet Explorer or to a disk so that I can use it on someone else’s computer while traveling when that someone else […]
- Another User "Hits the Wall" With Outlook Express
New subscriber Bruce wrote about a new email problem he was having: I have used outlook forever. all of a sudden the red x does not delete stuff. I have re-booted. that did nothing. help. After some emails to determine that Bruce was really using Outlook Express 6 and not any version of Outlook, I […]
- Sharing a Printer with a Wireless Notebook
New subscriber Keith wrote to ask about printer sharing help: Not sure if you can help, I have a Canon MP610 and want to make it wireless to both my Fujitsu notebook and my custom built desktop. The former has wireless built in and I have a USB TP-LINK plug in for the Desktop – […]
- Outlook 2007 — Opening an HTML eMail in Your Web Browser
This week, I got an interesting question from reader Lew Gazaway, who had started using Outlook 2007 as his email program: Hi Terry, I find your newsletter informative and interesting to read. I am using Windows 7 and Office 2007. How do I open your newsletter in Outlook and view it as an attachment rather […]
