After giving permission, the PCNINEONEONE folks have withdrawn it. So we are having to remove the "PC Nine One One Pages" they said we were taking revenue from them by allowing the pages on our site.  If you would like more information, as well as online help go to http://www.pcnineoneone.com.  This is a marvelous set of help guides.

The "Orientation & Training" page has many new pages.
A " Foster Parent Association" County Presidents Page. This lists the name, address and phone number for all of the county SCFPA presidents.
The "All Software" page lists all of the software including descriptions of all software in one folder (it is large  90 pages so give it time to download).

We also have pages with helpful information for all of you, it is called the "Job Description" page.  There is a page for the "Coordinator", the " Technical Manager", " Technical tips for the Computer Buddies", and a new page for the " Computer Users" themselves, this page explains what the computers users can expect from the Computer Buddies and the rest of us.

There four pages in the "Media Fact Sheet".  Check out the pictures of some of the computers we have picked up on page 2 of the 340 computer page

New exciting information on the "Advice to Parents" page. Become a shoulder to shoulder computer buddy it also explains what to do about predators when you are online.

In the "Help/Guides" page you will find the new " Tech Dictionary" finished. Ever wonder what all those strange, new words mean?  Here is a useful guide to the language of the Computer and the Internet.  We have also added a new "How to" section.  Please check out our new pages.

The SOFWEB site is located in Australia.  We are still working on this area. Some of the links and terms will not be familiar or available.  The information is some of the best we have found anywhere.  Please click on the SOFWEB logo to go to their site for much more information.
