Back to Basics

From the NY Times, a great link to send to people who are struggling with learning computers: Tech Tips for the Basic Computer User. BTW, if you're self-taught (as I am) you might want to skim through it, in case there's any little things you missed. I'm totally familiar with word and email and such, but didn't know "The number of megapixels does not determine a camera’s picture quality; that’s a marketing myth. The sensor size is far more important. (Use Google to find it. For example, search for “sensor size Nikon D90.”)". Nor was I aware that the space bar functions as a "page down" key online. I've just always hit page down *shrug*. Interesting how you can be totally versed with some rather complex stuff in one area and yet miss silly tricks like that, it's all a matter of need-to-know.
