WordPress 2.8.5 – Part 2

Last week we were looking in to the powerful WordPress editor. Those that missed my last article can view a copy either at the Herald Express’s website (www.thisissouthdevon.co.uk) or on my own online blog (www.computerarticles.co.uk).

To recap,WordPress (www.wordpress.org) is an open source application which gives home users the ability to quickly and easily create [...]

Accounting Software

We’ll kick straight off this week with a letter from one of my readers:

I am a keen reader of your Herald Express column and have downloaded some useful free software as a result. I was wondering if you know of any free downloads of Home Accounting [...]

Online Fraud #2

Backing up movies

As you can imagine a company such as ours that sells blank media (CD’s,DVD’s etc) does get asked on a daily basis how to go about making a copy of a movie using a home PC. As this is something not yet covered in Click I thought this week I [...]
