In this section, I will include some items related to managing and using technology - including computers, email, the Internet, and mobile phones. I hope you find it interesting.

The focus this month is on free software that is easily available to run on Windows PCs. Why pay huge amounts, when the free equivalents are almost as good?

The poetry page


Poetry has been my lifelong companion, so I thought it would be good to share some of it through these pages. This month's focus is on the poetry of one of the most renowned English poets — John Keats. Or, more particularly, his beloved Ode, "To Autumn". Everybody knows the first line of this poem, which seems so apt in October, as Summer slides into Autumn. This is a poem I read regularly, especially when I feel the need for tranquility. It is a treat for the senses and the best evocation of Autumn you could possibly wish for.
