    • Computing interests from 1999 when I first started this Web Site
      Learning how to write and upload Web Pages using mainly HTML4
      and assistance from the many persons who tell me what I have done wrong!
      I am also interested in preventing E-Mail sent Viruses from infecting my computer.
      I now run AntiVirus and Firewall software.
      Learning is an enjoyable but painful process!
