Ken is preparing and testing wireless access points for internet connectivity with all of his technology tools. It’s not my thing but it’s what he does and loves!

Thank you for praying even now, that God would prepare the group for the lessons and that the technology would work!

- TechRepublic also has an excellent article article entitled, “How to Sync Your iPod With Another PC without Losing Your Music“
If you have easier methods or additional information that might help others, please share them with us. We would love to hear them.

And, for most systems it’s not that hard. So, before you tear down your system, unplug the cables, lug the machine to the car, drive to the computer store, wait to have RAM installed, and pay for the service—read Microsoft At Home’s article entitled, “Add More Memory to Your Computer” on how to install it yourself.
Here’s an excellent and helpful TechRepublic checklist entitled “Items to Address with a PC Tune-up” that will help you remember WHAT to focus on in maintaining your computer.
