Greetings,   

This weekend should be a busy one. We're supposed to meet 
some friends at an Irish fest tomorrow, then we have a first 
birthday party on Saturday, and then it's shopping with my 
mom and sister on Sunday. I'm going to try not to spend too 
much money!

Enjoy,   
Mandi

       The Bee Gees: One Night Only Live on DVD

In 1997, musical legends "the Bee Gees" topped off a year 
which included inductions into both the Rock N’ Roll and 
Songwriters Halls of Fame (among the many honors of the year), 
with their only live performance of the year from the MGM 
Grand in Las Vegas, One Night Only. Their first US concert 
in nearly 10 years featured many of the hits from their 
performing and songwriting careers. This one of a kind DVD
is available now for the low price of $17.99 when you visit:

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

How To Configure a Dial-Up Connection

Although many people have switched to DSL, there are still 
several folks who still use dial-up. 

Well, if you are reading this, you must have some form of 
Internet connection going, but maybe you've been using 
broadband for awhile and you want to go back to dial-up. Or 
maybe you need to set up dial-up on a second computer. If 
you fall into any of those categories, this tip will take 
you step by step through the process and you can get it 
done in a jiffy. Note: This tip is for Windows XP, but 
similar directions are used for older versions of Windows 
as well.

1.) Go to Start, Control Panel and click on Network Connect-
ions. To do this, you must be in the classic view of the 
Control Panel.

2.) The Network Task window will come up on the left hand 
side of your screen. Click "Create a new connection."

3.) Once you have done that, the New Connection Wizard box 
will appear. Click Next. 

4.) Here you can select from the options that fit your 
connection needs. If you are just using a single computer, 
go ahead and select "Connect to the Internet." If you are 
setting up this connection for other computers in different 
areas, choose the one that is right for you. Click Next 
when done. 

5.) From the next screen, choose "Set up my connection 
manually" and click on Next.

6.) Now, select "Connect using a dial-up modem" and click 
Next again. 

7.) Next, you will see an ISP name box. The ISP is your 
Internet Service Provider. Whoever you are getting Internet 
from is the name you will want to put in this box. So, go 
ahead and type in their name.

8.) Now, you'll need to enter your phone number. This is the 
phone number of your ISP, because you will be dialing into 
their service, not your own. Be careful to type in the 
correct phone number and double check it a couple times to 
be sure. Again, entering a wrong phone number could result 
in a non-connection. Once done, click Next. 

9.) The Username text box will appear, so go ahead and type 
in a username. Next, type in a password in the Password and
Confirm Password box. 

10.) Once you have all of that done, your dial-up connection 
is complete. You can choose to make a shortcut icon for your 
desktop if you want. This will make it much easier for you 
to connect to the Internet each time you need to. Click 
Finish and you'll be all set.
