I started learning web design to support my efforts as a singer/songwriter. I'm still doing that, but these days my actual job involves building intranet resources as well. My skillset is PHP, HTML, CSS, and Javascript (I'm a big fan of jQuery).

comment Best way to insure my college daughter's laptop?
This isn't a direct answer, but 'get a cheaper laptop' might be good advice if she does lose it. Netbooks do great for most tasks.

comment Add a netbook to an existing Windows XP home network
Awesome! This did the trick for me. I did these steps on the netbook, then repeated them on every computer on the network (even though the other two could already see each other) - each time I did it on one of the others, the netbook saw it for the first time under "view workgroup computers." I can now share files and the printer. Thank you!

I have Windows Firewall turned on. I tried turning it completely off on the netbook and my office computer, and nothing changed.

comment Firefox: Remember new passwords without prompting
This is one reason why I'm glad it prompts me - so I can wait to say "yes" after I see that the login was correct.
