security... dont give out your address (oops)
dont give out your full real name (oops)

Yes i can, but she keeps asking the SAME questions over & again, & I'm TIRED!
If there were a tutorial, she could keep it on file and reference it herself (instead of calling me every 5 secs.)
Your suggestions are good, and I'll probably have to write the **** thing myself. Oh, well. I'm learning how to teach, Mom's learning to use a PC, and I can probably get a meal or two out of the deal. Plus, it gives us something to talk about. (monumentally overdramatic sigh)
