People have been so generous with their insights, experience, and knowledge over the years that I thought I'd post here for some answers. ( Note to Moderators: feel free to boo this one, if you see fit. ) And it is WAAAY off-topic...
My wife and I are family mentors for a refugee family from Burma here in Baltimore. We help with English, getting them library cards, figuring out bus schedules, etc. They recently came into a computer; we got it up and running, and they are now interested in getting on the internet. So here are the questions:
1.) It's a PC, and I am a Mac guy, so how do I check if it has an internal modem? I know there must be something I can do to get a "here's what I am and what I can do" report.
2.) It runs Windows 98 - will there be problems with connections to the net running that OS?
3.) Recommendations for a net provider? I have Verizon DSL, and can say it has been very stable - but there may be more cost-effective solutions...
4.) Anything else I might be missing?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
And the next post will be about music/GPO. Promise.
Thanks in advance,
