Greetings,   

Well, camping was actually not too bad last weekend. We went 
to the beach during the day, swimming and laying out on the 
sand. We also did our yearly climb up the dune, which left 
my legs screaming! Then at night we sat around the fire 
eating smores and telling stories. All in all, it was a good 
time. The only thing I could have done without was all the 
mosquito bites!

Enjoy,   
Mandi

          :::::  This Week's Computer Tip  :::::   

Overwriting

When you have a Word document open, look at the bottom of 
the screen. You'll notice a status bar, which tells you such 
things as what page you are on, how many pages total, etc. 

Near the middle of the status bar, you will see a small 
section with the letters "OVR" inside. The letters are 
probably a faint grey shadow. OVR stands for overwrite, 
which is a mode in Word that let's you replace text as you 
type instead of moving all the text over as you type. 

There are three ways to turn the overwrite function on:

1. Double Click on the OVR box at the bottom of the Word 
window. The letters will become dark. Just double click on 
them again to turn it off.

2. Press the "Insert" key on your keyboard. The insert key 
is usually somewhere near the "Delete" key, but on some 
keyboards it is in different places. Press the "insert" key 
again to turn the overwrite function off.

3. Click on "Tools" in the menu bar at the top of your 
screen, click Options to display the "Options" window. In 
the Options window, click on the "Edit" tab at the top, and 
in the "Editing options" section click to select or clear 
the "Overtype mode" check box. Be sure to click "OK" to 
save your changes.

          GopherCentral's Question of the Week

   Timely and topical, please click the link below to answer 
          GopherCentral's Question of the Week:

Question of the Week

 

                       ROBOT ARENA
                  F-R-E-E (Pay only s&d)   
               Normal Retail price $29.95

This game is unlike any I've ever seen, and that's why I 
think it's so cool. First, you build your robot to use in 
battle. Then you try to destroy the computer's powerful AI 
or fight one-on-one over LAN or the Internet. However, 
besides your opponent, there are other dangers lurking all 
around you - so beware! You may survive with just scrapes 
and dents, if you're lucky! Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP
