All I can say is Bless you for your succinct article on creating a form in Word.
Re: Welcoming article to the March 2007 issue.
Great magazine by the way. I want to thank you for clearing something up for me. Last September, a very good friend of mine died from a heart attack. The funeral home used had a website that people could come to who had not been able to be at the service, and a function you could have was to be informed by email when someone had contributed to the sign-in book. It was a wonderful site. After about a month, there started to be people who would sign in to the guestbook, but when I went to see who had just found out, they were advertisements for viagra. I only hope that his widow didn't see these. I know I was upset by the insensitivity, but your article made me realize at least that there is nothing the funeral home could do about it. Whenever I got one, I sent an email to the
funeral home and they took it off quickly, but I never knew how to broach
the subject and if she did see it, she kept a stiff upper lip.
Thank you for your article “MS Photo Editor, Wherefore Art Thou?” I have gotten hooked on the ease, speed & friendliness of Photo Editor on an older computer, and actually spent hours & days trying to find it for my new box.
My Dell Dimension 9150 did not come with an XP install disc: it resides on some kind of ghost hard drive, or something. So when I tried to install the Photo Editor component: IT WASN’T THERE!
I found another old Office XP Pro 2002 disc, found the component, and BINGO! I’m up & Running with an old friend. Thank you for providing a valuable service.
Good to hear from you again and looking forward to hearing more from you. Hope things are getting better with your family.
My name is Mike and I've been a subscriber to TechTrax for a few
years now. You've provided a great set of resources which I find I'm
frequently recommending to others. If you're ever in New Orleans the
first Wednesday of the month, it would be a hoot if you could stop by
and say a few words to our computer club: www.nopc.org

No need to reply to this. Just to say that I have wondered how things were with you and the family
since last time you e-mailed out so thank you for the update - sorry the
news couldn't be better.
It is easy to overlook the suffering of those who are caring for others
and who must watch their loved ones battling with illness while always
keeping a brave and cheerful face on to bring comfort and support to
those for whom they care. Keep 'letting of steam' when you e-mail out,
people do care and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and
with those whom you love at this time.
Hello, well after struggling for 2 days and nights and searching for a way to crack the code on frames on the net, I came upon your tutorial and finally I have it done. By far the cleanest, most informative, and clear lesson I have had the pleasure of learning from. So thank you for your help and keep up the great work helping us new people. Well, its off to go play with my site, you have really opened a whole new world for me, thanks again.
Hi Diane, Just took a couple of quiz's from Tech Trax and noticed your bio. What a wonderful thing you and Greg are doing for others. Thank you! I hope that your lives are happy, joyess and free. Keep the rubber side down. Respectfully, Tom

Re: Word DB Connectivity, Introduction
I'm obviously very happy to become a member, I really enjoy your articles. This is something that I've been trying to find out how to do for ages and to do a course at my local college but they don't seem to have anything remotely similar. Thanks for a great newsletter.

Re: Windows XP Security—The Big Joke
This article was extremely useful. By booting using the Win2K repair console, I could copy the files to another directory and thus restore ALL the drive after reformatting. Hats off to the author!
Re: The Art of Plagiarism
I found your article very eye opening as I had just saved to my computer a couple of your articles, for my own perusal at a better leisure time, when it dawned to me that I was doing something wrong. Mind you, something wrong without the intention to rob you of your hard work and money, but still wrong. Please know that I am deleting those 2 articles from my computer as soon as I submit this message. Keep up the good work!
Editor's note...NO, don't delete those article. They ARE for your own use/education and you are free to keep them on your computer, print them, read them on the bus, tape them to the walls of your office, pass a printed copy to a friend for their education and even read them while in the bathroom. NOT to worry...this article was NOT directed at the readers who use our articles to learn. In fact, if there is code in an article, you are free to copy it and use it within your own applications, provided you give the author of the code credit within your own code comments, that is.
What you cannot do...is publish our articles to your web site. Nor can you put your own name on our articles so they appear to be your own material. If you print them, you must leave them in full. You cannot take chunks of our articles and post them to your own online sites, blogs, or use them in your own written material, without permission from the author.
If you want to publish them to a company intranet (accessible only by those in your company) or to use within your own company printed newsletter...that is USUALLY permitted, but you need to write to us to ask the author for their permission first! However, in most all cases, that type of learning duplication has been permitted.
We love it when you use our tutorials for your own learning or print them in full to give to a friend and say "check out this great article I found on TechTrax!" What we DON'T love...in fact what is illegal under federal copyright laws...is to reprint our material in any way and call it your own or make it appear that it is yours by not giving us the proper credit for the material.
And we don't want our articles printed to other web sites because it takes away from our site's search engine ratings. However, you ARE free to link to our article from your site as a helpful resource to your visitors and you can even use a few lines from the article as a teaser to encourage your visitors to click the link or as info to show when they will learn by visiting the linked article.
I hope that clears it up for you. Thank you for your email, but you were no way in the wrong. Save, read, study, print...enjoy! Just don't rip us off by making our work appears to be yours.
