Printers:

When you purchase a new printer, remember to add it to the list of printers for your computer. This will allow you to print to your new printer. If you have a network printer remember to check you TCP/IP setup.

Need more Memory?

Adding more memory (RAM) is the single most ecconomical way to increase your systems performance. Want to know exactly what you should get for your specific sytem? Well why not get your RAM where I get my RAM. The Crucial System Scanner takes the guesswork out of upgrading your memory. 

Do your part to prevent the spread of Virus Hoaxes

There are almost as many virus hoaxes out there as there are true viruses. A hoax is harmless and is basically a rumor designed to clog mail servers and spread panic. They are generally messages sent or forwarded via e-mail warning of some particularly nasty virus and requesting that you forward the message to everyone on the planet. Rarely are these warnings legitimate, most times they are hoaxes. Just delete them. Still paranoid? Check it out before ignoring or forwarding the message to everyone on your e-mail list! How? Go to Symantec's AntiVirus Research Center Hoax Page . They list known hoaxes with examples.

What to do with chain e-mails

If you receive a "chain" e-mail that threatens bad luck if it isn't sent on to ten other people, retaliate by sending it 10 times to the person who sent it to you. (That should teach them!)

Respect and Protect your friends privacy

Remember, when sending e-mails to multiple recipients at one time that some of those people might not appreciate your reveling of their e-mail addresses to everyone else.  Do the right thing and use use BCC (blind carbon copy) instead of TO:.
