......When I first started learning about computer tools, I did so on the common interest Internet Forums. This was where I learned to copy & paste, post images, center my posts, resize, post photos from my desk top, my flat top printer, & my image provider, how to post hyperlinks, and I learned how to post my topics with a large colorful headline.

......The forums has other members that would glad to help you to learn these things. When I first arrived on The Internet, I didn't know how to copy & paste or post images, I would have piles of books at my side, for the topics at hand. Everyone was wondering where I was getting this information from. ......Placing personal experiences, knowledge, and sharing this, is what The Internet Forums are all about.

......Posting Home Movies, on youtube, is my latest learning experience. I have a lot of VHS tapes that I had to convert from Video to DVD Disc, and then, I have to convert to DVD Disc by using another tool.

.......I have had a very difficult time learning this these tasks on my own, and I always wished for some help. There was times when I thought about throwing my computer out of my window,

....One of the things that I dislike, on The Internet, is predators of children. Because of this; I have to monitor every move that my grandchildren goes to on The Internet. It's sad that the children is not safe on The Internet, because there is a vast knowledge base. .....Using Spell Checkers and pulling up a Dictionary tab, is another way to teach.

....I have a one forum, with a staff of ten moderators, to keep out unsavory posts. These Staff members has the tools to delete posts, banned members, logged IP Addresses, and to placed the reasons why, in our hidden Staff section. All ten of our Staff members will be alerted to any suspicious activity. Safe Guards has to be in place at all times.
