My Newsletter

I was really late getting my newsletter out this time. I tell subscribers they will get a newsletter every 10 days to 2 weeks. My last one was October 12, and I just got this one sent last night, November 5. :-( I subscribe to a couple of newsletters that arrive in my inbox every Saturday morning, just like clockwork! I am just not a clockwork kinda gal! I may beat up on myself for being late, but I doubt that any subscribers notice or care. In fact, the only unsubcribes I have received are from those who thought I sent too many emails. I wish they had hung in there a while longer, because what they were reacting to was the first two weeks. In the beginning, I have several 'get acquainted' emails that I send out in order to ... well ... get acquainted! I usually write 3 short articles about computer topics of interest to RVers. Usually, I'm responding to questions that people are asking us. For this issue I recorded a video tutorial to go along with each article. Please take a look, watch these videos and let me know what you think.

On your "Back up witn Windows XP" article, I think you should also mention you need XP Professional to do backups. XP Home Office does not have that option.

Good point Vangoh - thanx! Backup is not available with a standard installation of Windows XP Home, however it DOES come on the installation disks in the ValueAdd folder. Instructions for installing it are written at: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q302894

True, but most of us don't have the full set of Microsoft XP installation disks. We only have what came factory installed on our pc's (or laptops) and a Windows XP recovery disk. There is no ValueAdd folder. Maybe you could point your audience to an alternate source for the Windows backup program. Thanks.

hmmm - I thought for sure it would be on Microsft's site, but I don't find it. I did find it on http://www.winxptutor.com/ntbackup.htm
