Help for Internet Newcomers

Notes For Newbies

Welcome to the World Wide Web, newcomers, (newbies.) It's a jungle out there. Let me throw you a few vines, er, lines.

If an email comes back to you, recheck the address. If some fool has gone and moved without sending you a notice, let them find you after they have a new address. Otherwise, try sending it again. Wait a day, try again and then give up.

Making Your Own Webpage

Webmonkey Webmonkey will answer most of your questions about the latest of developments, as well as basics. For a fine program to get you creating, use Arachnophelia, a Careware program that's free, but you have to do some good deeds. It's the brainchild of Paul Lutus. Sorry, but I can't answer questions about pagemaking. Too, too busy here.

I hope the Internet is more fun than frustration for you. Thanks for finding Our Tentative Times. If you have a newbie frustration please send it to editor@tentativetimes.net
