Geek Tip: - Before you rush out to buy that computer part at your local computer store, why not take a minute or two to do a search for it online? Most times, you'll find a cheaper price, even with shipping! Many online stores offer user reviews and helpful instructions so you can easily find out all you'll need to know concerning installation, disposing of the old parts and other tips to help you make a sound decision.



That wraps it up for another week! If you're looking for more, there's an archive of past articles here. Do you know of a great site that's worth sharing? Do you have any comments or suggestions? I'd love to hear from you! Send me an email to sreed@tucows.com
