Still playing catch up here with the week in review here in the Computing blog. This was a fun week, with lots of graphics to spruce up your web pages, e-mail messages and forum postings for fall and Halloween. The blinkies were especially popular, so look for future articles about them. Maybe you’ll even be able to make your own.
For now, though, won’t you take a look at all of the interesting stuff that happened here last week?
Thanks so much. And as always, I would love to hear from you with the topics you’d love to see, as well as any suggestions you might have for this blog.
