Let me make a BIG suggestion to you! If you use your computer quite a bit (school work, research, playtime) and have not cleaned your C drive up - you need to! Following these directions:
Make sure that there are NO programs running (ie the internet, a virus protector, AOL instant messenger)
Go to Programs
Click System Tools
Click Scan Disk
A box will appear - make sure your C drive is highlighted. Put a check in the box that says (under type of test) Thorough. Also check the box that is beside the sentence "Automatically fix errors"
This will take some time to perform. The amount of time depends on your computer (how quick it is!) Once your systems check is done your computer will run a lot smoother. Do this once a week.
You should be able to copy and paste from
this page....all the spaces have been added, even if it does not look like it! JUST be sure and change
all the pertinant information that relates to YOU!
Make sure and this
Posting size when
It's very important to post the size when you post a graphic. This will help your site load as
quickly as possible. If you do not know the size, simply right click on the graphic, then click VIEW
width is always posted first, height second. Here is an example:
<img src="thecoop.gif" width="150" height="100" border="0" alt="CoopLink">
Posting border="0" will keep your linking graphics CLEAN...without that bothersome ring around
Posting alt="___________" is simply the name you give the graphic.
Putting a "mailto:" address on an email
If you email someone and would like them to respond to another email address, simply put this on your email:
That will create a hyperlink that can be clicked to obtain a new message box.

Putting A Signature
On Your Email
You have to make up something to save-a quote and your http address is
fine-- go to an area where you can write it and save it... like note
pad or even a blank page in Microsoft works would
do- You take that blank page, and type in what you want to show at the
bottom of your mail-
Type in what you want...then save to your C-drive- this will have to be saved as TEXT
document, not just document.
Go to your mail section, find the OPTIONS...MAIL AND NEWS
then go to Identify- you will see a signature file- Browse until you
have the file that you saved- I saved mine as SIGNATURE (duh!!!)
now...once you have finished- go to your mail, and mail me a note-
whatever you have saved.....should be on the bottom of the email- like
This should generate more traffic to your page- you advertise it each
time you send an email!

need to indent your wording. Visit my teaching background site to find out how
do do this.
