New Years Challenge update

You do remember the challenge, don’t you? Go ahead and check back, just in case.

I’m doing my part. How many of you switched to OpenDNS? Not only that, but the car wash company is now almost 100% on OpenDNS. So is Mom’s new lappy.

Other things I helped with this year so far…

  • Showed grand dad copy and paste from a pdf to word doc.
  • Got Mom taking tons of pictures with her new camera and using the gallery system, correctly, in Vista. Flickr is next.
  • Got the lad using Flickr
  • Posted a tutorial on embedding YouTube videos using the WP visual editor (which, from what I’m told, hasn’t improved)
  • Got a bunch of you to use Viddler (thanks for the comments!) instead of YouTube

I think I did a pretty good job for the first quarter of ’08. How goes it on your end?

  1. Wow! How cool that you’re spreading the word about OpenDNS. And that you set up Mom’s lappy. Did you show her how to add a custom image? Maybe a photo of the whole cast of characters? 😉
