Hey, my mamanger at work bought a new dell computer and he is a total newbie to computers. I told him i got two monitors he almost fell unconcious. j/k. he wants to learn html programming, i can get him an e-book on that but he is also an extreme newbie to the computer world, he doesnt know the basics of computers, so does anybody know of any free program that shows you how to use a PC., with animations and stuff, or any good e-book for extreme new users.

I heard a couple people say these are good (at school... total noobs)... however I've heard bad things about them (by more experienced users).
I have never used them myself... but for "free" *plus 6.95 shipping* you can try one out.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

I've seen that video-professor guy so much on TV I think I know his commercials by heart now.
From what I understand, the shipping is what they (professor) pay to UPS or whatever shipper and the handling is what they receive, right? And that's how video-professor makes his money?
Always wondered about that.

Funny thing about the video-professor dude is I seem to remember him on TV one time and he inserted his disk into the CD-tray but instead of pressing the close button he mashed the tray in. Sure after a little push it'll automaticly close but given time on some of these older desktop computers you can also damage your computer like this.
Whimpy noob today... cocky end user who uses CD-trays as cup holders tomarrow.
