New “Basics” category



I’ve added a new Computers-Basics category that will be a catchall for all sorts of “what is a” articles and hopefully very simple how-to’s (the kind of things that will have some viewers rushing for the exits, or the search boxes…) One of the things I like trying to do is explaining tech stuff in less than tech terms, or at least in an approachable way. On this site, so far, I’ve dealt with pretty technical issues and the kind of stuff that has a new user searching for an exit (probably the x in the upper right hand corner, or the back button), or maybe a translator. I hope that this series will not need extra referencing to understand. I’ll probably post to this category in spurts….


Just like the other categories it’s hard to say when the mood will strike for a post. I think there was 1 post in all of October and I have no idea how many last month. (~300 ?!??) Anyway… given that I do other things than sit at the computer and type on the website…. entries may be few and far between, and they may come in groups of 10 or 20 as I get time. I hope their useful to someone.
