Anyone reading this that ‘knows’ me, will ‘know’ that I am not a complete ‘Internet Junkie’, merely a humble acolyte who ‘knows her place’ at the feet of the one true Internet Junkie.
That being said, I have been seen to throw the odd glimpse at the occasional ‘Computer Magazine’ - although, - and I want this to be noted in my defence, - simply glimpsing does not make one an adherent to the claims of the contents thereof, -as it were, - so to speak.
To the point, -
Scarcely moments ago, I concluded the most recent of these ‘glimpses’. However, this time the glimpse became more of a browse and the browse became something of a gander, which ...
Allow me to explain...
“Webuser” came in the house yesterday and, as is the ‘norm’ around here, it sat unread and un- ruffled on the settee, not getting in anyone’s way because we were all ‘doing something more useful instead’ - (oh boy, does that date me ;- )
Finding that I had a few meagre moment between chores (chores are the new ‘therapy’ - don’t cha’ know :-? ) I picked up this lonely magazine and as I said, started to ‘glimpse’ through it.
I won’t repeat myself - suffice it to say that, I found myself being soothed by its wise words and subtly instructed by its interesting ingredients.
My initiation began with the gentle reminder supplied by its ‘Workshops’ section, where it showed how to ‘Transfer you bookmarks’.
This is something I have been meaning to do for some time now and, as the ‘hint’ at the edge of the page suggested, it is an ideal way to keep your ‘favourites’ from the Internet ‘backed up’.
I won’t go into detail here about how to carry out this simple, safeguarding manoeuvre, if you really need to know
, then you can go to the “Webuser” Internet pages at
Next in line for my perusal -
(you’ll notice that I have shifted into a ‘higher gear’ at this point - I was simply ‘glimpsing’ until now :-7 ) - was the item on in the ‘On Test’ section about ‘Instant messengers’, and very informative it was too.
Reading between the lines (- as I always do - comes naturally to me - must be ‘in the genes’).
Like I said, reading between the lines - it would appear that it is only a matter of time till the various ‘Instant messengers’ become inter-compatible. The same goes for text messaging - as part of the deal in a recent take-over was that AOL would allow things to become more flexible. (it would also appear that, at the moment, it is AOL who are holding things up Boooo to them say I)
There was an other great article about ‘cookies’- now don’t start me on that one (which is the ‘smiley’ for ‘steam coming out of her ears’? ) - and one on reorganising you life, which I found far more acceptable than the usual ‘run-of-the-mill advertising in disguise’ normally associated with this ‘type’ of promotional/interest group magazine.
All in all, this is a great new magazine;
a breath of fresh air in what is an over commercialised field.
(‘computer related’ magazines)
At the amazingly low price of 99p
and with an offer to have six months
(that’s twelve copies) of this excellent magazine delivered to you door for only £9:00, ...
I’m seriously thinking of subscribing myself - as for my ‘other half’ ...
Oh, I forgot about him, - shhhh
He’s not even seen it yet!
I better away and get him his tea, before he cottons on.
