Future Webinars

Rather than hide them somewhere, here are some ideas that have been suggested for future webinars or things that might make the cut if we have enough time:

  • Social Media: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ - What are they, how do they work, and do you care?

  • Do you need a swap file? - It depends. I'll review what it depends on.

  • Document organization - My Documents, but then what? Using folders, naming conventions, and other techniques to keep track of what's on your computer can be simple.

  • Setting a default mail program - How to change what happens when you click an email link or click "Send To".

  • Master of your own domain - Domain purchase, website hosting, and setting up your own email address.

Feel free to suggest more!
