Getting Mum & Dad Connected

By Jane Finette I've been working with the Web since 1997 & during this time my parents have always shied away from my attempts to get them connected. "... we're too old!" was their cry! Well, enough is enough. I'm going to get them broadband, refurbish a Mac Mini, buy a cheap monitor & give them tutoring lessons. Related Link

Will Do Data Entry for Sidewalks

By Austin King I've been doing data entry for a local group that is trying to get sidewalks installed in Greenwood, which is neighborhood in Seattle.

Seattle is supposed to be one of the most walkable cities in the United States. The truth of the matter is that 30% of Seattle neighborhoods have no sidewalks.

I've been volunteering my time create a DabbleDb database for volunteer information as well as doing data entry for the RFQ processes for a demonstration site sidewalk project. Related Link
