9/5/00 - Check August 2000 "ComputerUser.com" for good stuff. Most issues have something good.
8/14/00 - Computer column and stuff at www.larrysworld.com.
8/10/00 - An early-morning computer show is Wild Web at www.wildweb.com - but doesn't work. Clicktv.com says Sun, 8/13, 2:30 a.m. & Sun, 8/20, 3:30 a.m., both on KCBS, Chan 2. It's been on for a while, but I seldom see it, so I'm just now listing it. It's ok, better than some. 8/9/00 - I couldn't get clicktv.com, tvguide.com, or the Wild Web site to work today. Do what you can till I fix this.
5/18/00 - Remember, every Thursday Business section in the Los Angeles Times (LAT) paper is their computer and internet issue. Also, Jeff Levy has a computer Q&A column. I don't usually mention any of their content cause most people in L.A. can read it at their local library. Or, it might be on their web site, where I don't go cause I crash.
4/27/00 - Gina Smith who had one of the better computer shows on the radio a few years ago has retired from journalism to CEO a computer-ish company. Leo Laporte, who had worked with Gina, will take over her column in Access magazine. It's all in the 4/23/00 issue of www.accessmagazine.com which is in a few of the local Sunday papers and is worth a look.
4/10/00 - Try to get the free 4/2000 issue of "Computer User" magazine. This month it combines the existing Computer Currents mag and site with the unfamiliar Computer User mag. The first few pages cover the history, back to 1982, and why they combined. Seems Like the old Computer Currents staff will maintain their web site at www.computeruser.com.
4/6/00 - Most of the computer shows on TV aren't very good. Perhaps the best is Digital Duo on PBS and is on a few times a week. One is Monday, 9-9:30 p.m., on KLCS channel 58, and check the guides for other spots. Web site is www.digitalduo.com.

10/19/99 - A good read is "ENIAC" by Scott McCarthey. It's about Mauchly and Eckert who designed and built the first digital computer, started the first computer company, and never made money. This was in the 1940's, and gives some other early computer info.
Free internet - Two sites give free internet: www.netzero.com and www.freei.net. I know a few people on netzero and they like it, no problems. Also, either Mark or Marc on "The KABC Computer Show" suggested it. Freei is newer and I don't remember anyone who tried it.
