Please: Just submit ONE question or comment at a time, in each form submission. But feel free to submit as many forms/questions as you need to. Thanks.
This site is primarily intended to be used by the Tolland (CT) Senior Center Computer Training students and class attendees.
Welcome to "Ask W1z111" (say "wizzeee")!
The concept is simple:
Students come upon a particular Computer or Internet related issue while doing "normal" Computer or Internet activities; they can immediately come to this site, enter their question or issue, and Ask W1z111 will provide answers for them as quickly as possible. Answers will showup in the spreadsheet frame below the question input frame, once they are input by Ask W1z111.
Since there are multiple ways to resolve or explain Computer or Internet issues, the answers provided by Ask W1z111 might be different from answers found elsewhere for similar Computer or Internet issues.
Click any of these buttons to go to other Ask W1z111 pages, where you can ask your Computer & Internet questions (and look for answers to other questions); or suggest a topic to be covered inupcoming classes; or suggest things you'd like to see changed with this Ask W1z111 site; or share some of your own thoughts and wisdom for others to learn and benefit from; or fill out a Local Eatery Review Form; or read other Local Eatery Reviews; or just have-a-look at some interesting "miscelloonia".
Thanks for your participation!
Working together, we can make this site more interesting and moreuseful for all!

The Tower of "Babble"?
One of the most frustrating things about our modern-day digital world is the confusion and non-interactivity or non-compatibility of so many devices and applications. Different manufacturers and programmers are all over the lot with which computer language or code they use for their products and applications; and which hardware components; and which networking protocols; which file extensions; which GUI (GraphicalUser Interface); which templates; which widgets, gadgets; and on and on it goes!
And, as technology improves and devices get smaller and smaller, manufacturers must find ways to somehow take advantage of all their previous efforts; when similarly-intended devices were larger and more cumbersome, and could contain more electronics, and more storage, and bulkier applications. Indeed, today's high-tech cellphones have barely begunto open the doors of opportunity that (I believe!) will continue to evolve and will become necessary, even permanent, adjuncts to our daily lives; with regard to personal computing and communications in general. Soon, people will be in-touch constantly if they wish to be, (and if they can afford the rates the communications companies are sure to charge).
Perhaps someday, when the dust settles down from the now somewhat chaotic frenzy for pushing through only the best-there-is-for-now technology; maybe all things digital and electronic will be designed to seamlessly communicate with each other (the devices themselves) and will be capable of carrying out their intended functions through simpler user-interfaces, including using simple thought input! Wow! Think of that!
What a journey!
