Q: I read your recent article regarding using Microsoft Word without having to pay. I am in the situation where I often do not have internet/Wi-Fi or even phone service (on a private boat). I like Microsoft Word because Wi-Fi is not needed. I keep all of my recipes on Word and access them when I am in remote areas on the boat. Is there any way around having to pay for Word?

— Janet Kvistad

A: If you want the capabilities of Word, including the ability to work without an internet connection, without having to pay for Word, I recommend you take a look at OpenOffice.

Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing

May 9, 2020 | internet | No Comments


Internet
Connection Sharing (ICS) enables a Windows computer to share its
Internet connection with computers on local area networks. It’s
been around since Windows 98 SE, and with the launch of Windows
XP, it’s only gotten better.

Windows XP ICS has some notable advantages over the versions of
ICS in Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows Me:

  • It’s easier
    to set up
    . There’s no software to install, and it doesn’t
    add any network components or protocols.
  • It’s much
    more reliable and much less likely to cause network problems.
  • You can create
    a Network Bridge connecting
    two or more local area networks and share the Internet connection
    with the computers on all of them. This is especially useful if
    your XP computer is connected to both a wired and wireless network.
  • ICS
    client computers can use XP’s
    Internet Gateway
    to monitor and control

Today, it is hard to imagine life without a computer or television and other electronic gadgets that have become so commonplace since the advent of modern technology that it is leaving us and our children with little time to enjoy nature and the outdoors. Not so long ago, parents derived much pleasure from seeing their kids cavorting in the outdoors beneath the sun or climbing trees and remaining somewhat more active than the kids of today who have found a virtual world in which to remain engrossed. Thus, technology and childhood obesity are closely related because we have now become accustomed to having our eyes glued to the computer screen or television screen and are otherwise taken up with different forms of electronic entertainment.
