NetSquirrel by Patrick Crispin
Patrick wrote an absolutely excellent tutorial on everything related
to the Internet. It's now a few years old, and gone
away. Fortunately, he still does lots of articles and presentations to help
new users out. He not only helps with the Internet, he has helpful articles
on computer basics like Securing Windows, privacy issues, slow computer maintenance.
Visit his site, and you will be glad you did.

Run alternately with his Cohort above, Bob Rankin and Patrick have a
world reknown newsletter and an excellent website that has many things but
my two favorites are the archives of his newsletter (which you should subscribe
to!) and his Best Of Everything pages

anti-virus, astronomy, and auctions to the W's of weather, webmaster,
women, and word fun.

things to do once you get there. This site will help you get to lots of
places. They have links to tons of subjects such as arts, business, education,
entertainment, and especially great links under Computers for learning more
about computers and the Internet!
