How I Make (Spend) Money on the Internet

You can read magazine articles or buy books about eBay.com to see how you can make a fortune selling your old junk, which is someone else's treasure. This is a good deal, especially since in almost all cases, the buyer pays shipping costs, and in some cases, more for "handling." Sellers have the... Sign in to see full entry.

Frustrated Incorporated

I've been working at computers for quite a while. Since 1987, in fact. A little before that, we had a Texas Instruments T-something that didn't do very much, but was an appreciated gift from my mother-in-law.

Today I found out my doctor is a science fiction fan. And a computer newbie. The medical group or association, whatever it’s called, it’s an HMO and a complex of clinics and hospital, has gone computer. Finally.

FreeCell, Don't Release Me

I like FreeCell a lot. Okay, I love FreeCell. All right, ALL RIGHT! I'm addicted to FreeCell. But it's not my fault; it's my upbringing. The roots are in my childhood, which, by the way, was an unbelievably long time ago. So, be prepared to go waaay back. I was born into a family where we had a lot... Sign in to see full entry.
