Computers and Internet Surfing

Barry Codron, brother of our listmate Deanne, shares his computer know-how with us via standalone Safe Surfing newsletters available on this page. Many thanks to Barry!

Each Safe Surfing newsletter is a "pdf" because they are nicely formatted and include photos. To read a newsletter, click its issue month to download it, and it will automatically open in the Adobe Reader software. If you don’t already have the free Adobe Reader program, you can download it (free) from the Adobe website.
