Meet the Editors
Meet Co-Editor Fran Klasinski
I got my first computer back in the early 90's. An old
286 iron monster of a legacy IBM compatible that I was
taught to tweak into believing it was a fully operational
Previous to this questionable purchase, the only real
computer training I had was chucked down my throat in a
7-day period by a wing-nut who crash coursed yours truly
and several business classmates with a program
called Word Star.
Now my fellow classmates were kids who came up
through high-school using computers. I was the
'mature' student who didn't have a clue short of
knowing where the button to turn the darned thing
on was located.
These bright kids all proved her correct ... it could be
taught in a 7-day period. This mature student missed the
passing grade by two lousy points.
I never forgot the lesson I learned in this computer
class. It is the reason I am here. The reason that our
eZine How2-4Newbies was born.
I will never ever assume that because someone owns a
computer that they even know how to turn the darned
thing on, let alone operate it correctly.
For two solid years I learned DOS up to and including
Dos 6.22 and every component that made up that
When I graduated to learning Windows 3x, I decided I
knew enough to go on the Internet.
Every day of my life I have learned something new and
something better that goes right along with something
From the frustration I have learned that having a sound
knowledge of the basics will always keep you in the
driver's seat fully in charge of this wondrous tool.
"M" taught me frustration; "NMN" taught me patience and gave me insight into myself and the computer I will
always be grateful for. That list of mentors continues
to grow exponentially.
And now I offer you the chance to journey safely, and
happily down the Super Information Highway called the
Internet with the help of Chris Klasinski and myself to
help you find the way.
May your journey be endless and the routes chosen lead to your continued success.
If you haven't joined us yet, by all means do so now ...
... and let the journey begin.
