Question: 28 May 2007


I have been into computers for awhile now, but am still amazed at the number of programs that are available. Everyone has opinions on what is best to use.

I have been following your website for a couple of years and like your simple approach to things. It should would be useful to have a rundown of the software you use.

Thanks In Advance



Hi Dave,

Good idea. Following your suggestion we have created a page showing the programs we use. The following link will take you to the page

Should I upgrade to Windows Vista. I am currently using Windows XP. I am pretty happy with it. I mainly use my computer for email, web surfing, and Microsoft Word. I create the occasional music CD and am just starting with digital photography.

Question: 31 December 2003   (Answer updated 05 Oct 2007)


I use Outlook Express for my email client. Recently I have received an email from my ISP that my space on the mail server is nearing its maximum allowable size. I have deleted all my old emails and this does not seem to solve the problem.

Question: 16 April 2003   (Answer updated 06 Oct 2007)


My Question: I am having a serious problem with my mouse. I have an older Pentium computer. Not the fastest, but it does all the things I need it to do. My 4 year old mouse has died. I tried cleaning and all the other things but the mouse is just dead. The problem is that I donít have a USB port or one of those round sockets that the newer mouse fits into. My mouse socket is trapezoid shaped. I bought a mouse with a round shaped plug and an adaptor that would allow it to fit in the trapezoid socket, but this didnít work. Does this mean I have to have a major upgrade to my computer.

Question: 27 February 2003

I want to buy a web camera, but have a problem. It seems that all the cameras I look at require a USB connection. My computer is an older one and I don't have a USB connection. Does this mean that I need a new computer.  Any help would be appreciated.
