Basic Computer Set-ups....



[just my opinion.... Anyone got other ideas, pro or con?]



Typically, we all need to be able to do the following... 


(current versions, please)


  • MS Internet Explorer
  • Firefox browser
  • Flash player
  • Real Player
  • Windows Media
  • Quicktime
  • Acrobat Reader
  • YouTube videos
  • Flickr photos
  • Facebook.com
  • [and they need to be able to actually PLAY videos inside Facebook -- Our class has a group page with videos in it, which apparently our computers won't play.]
  • And somehow, we need to be able to provide (cheap) ear-buds -- say in the Student Admin office (or Library) as practical.  The public libraries apparently offer cheap sets for $1.




  • And btw, as long as you're optimizing our browsers with some basic functionalities.... please make the LINKS-bar visible on all the computers so our students will start understanding how to take advantage of this great (unheralded) feature.  Please delete Microsoft's self-serving buttons (nobody uses them, thus people assume the LINKS-bar is useless).  And as you have time... let me encourage you to ADD some standard buttons that a lot of people might use... Crossroads.edu, IndyChristian.com, IndyStar.com, GoogleNews, GoogleReader, GospelCom.net (Bible).



Other ideas, thoughts, links... re Basic setups?
