"This is by far the absolute best e-zine (Computer Tips) I have ever seen on the net. I actually can't wait to get each newsletter, and I've been online since 1996! Super job to you and everyone involved with WorldStart.com, from the newsletters to the excellent "eye-appeal" of the well-designed website. I've ordered CD's, screensavers, subscribed to your publications, actually used and benefited from the super computer tips, you name it. I'm in Cyber-Heaven with this whole package! Congratulations on having the best thing on the net!" ~E
"Dear Sirs, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your site! I paid for a year of lessons from Gateway when I bought my computer because I didn't have a clue. That was a year ago and you have taught me more than I have learned from the lessons. Thank you, Keep up the good work." ~D
"I just wanted to let you know what a fine job you are doing with your newsletter. I have been involved with computers my entire professional career. That means I give a lot of help to a lot of people. I can tell you that I have found no single better resource about helping people understand their computer and than your letter. It's simple, common sense, funny and written in English (as opposed to computer-speak!). I have recommended your letter to all my family, relatives, friends, co-workers and customers. Thank you and keep up the good work!" ~K
Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your emails; I've recommended them to several people.
I really like the way you present your information, along with URLs to click on for more details; I enjoy all the different subjects you cover (especially the computer tips!). The information itself covers a multitude of areas which many people don't have a lot of knowledge about, and it is much appreciated!
I am always impressed by the way you have your emails formatted; they are orderly, logical, and easy to read and follow up on. Also, I can't remember having ever received any other regular emails that actually have all words spelled correctly and are grammatically correct! This is actually important for most people; if there are errors like this, the impression is that the author may be careless, sloppy, and/or uncaring, or they would have tried to craft a better product.
From time to time, I unsubscribe from emails that I thought initially might be good ones to receive; I can't think of any reason why I would ever do that from yours - it would be quite a loss for me!
All in all, I just wanted to tell you what a GREAT JOB you're doing!!" ~P
"I have been meaning to drop you a line for quite some time now. After you were gone for almost a week recently, I really missed seeing your VERY informative daily pages. I am fairly new at the PC and you great comments have been most helpful to me.
One area that I like the most is your daily Tip section. Since you change your format a while back and it now shows a picture of your PC screen and what it should look like as we follow along, even we beginners can't miss.
I also want to speak about your "chat board"----Those people on there that fill up page after page about questions and answers are most helpful to us "newbies". I have used it many times for my questions and they have been very polite and helped me a lot." ~J
"I have been receiving your newsletters for quite a while, and I think I've just been taking for granted the wealth of info you send just in your newsletters alone!
I visited your web page for the first time in months, or maybe as much as a year, and I was pleasantly surprised at all the changes, and extremely impressed.
I know you have shut down from time to time for improvements and such, but I never gave it a second thought that the newsletters would continue. I just wanted to say Thanks for your newsletters, your web page, and your diligence in obtaining all the information and opportunities you make available for your subscribers!" ~R
"I received the Virus named Darknight@cableone.net yesterday and thanks to your information my computer was not infected. Unfortunately I deleted it before I wrote down the actual name of the virus that showed up when my virus scan detected it. The e-mail came in and I didn't know who it was from and using your advise I saved it to disk ( or at least tried to ) and a message popped up that the e-mail had a virus and couldn't be saved. I then deleted the e-mail and ran a Virus scan on the computer just to be safe. It paid off NO Virus. I'm glad I have subscribed to your letter." ~"
"I REALLY enjoy your newsletters. The "personal" touch you give them makes you stands heads above all the others. Keep up the good work and know that you are appreciated by me." ~C
"Hi Steve, Being a techie for a major computer company, and a subscriber to your newsletter, I want to tell you how much your advice helps the beginner and novice users out there. It is a great newsletter, written precisely on a layman's terms, giving beneficial and understanding info to those in need. Great Job, keep up the good work. Just wanted to let you know you are highly recognized and respected in the tech industry. Best Wishes." ~G
"Just want to let you know how helpful your email info has been to me, a non-expert. My friend, Brenda Robinson, told me about your site. I look forward to the computer 101 lessons; Those that I find useful and appropriate, are copied to a file to be accessed when and if needed. Please keep this going. Love the stories, too." ~L
"Just a quick note here....to begin with I must say that I don't know when or where I signed up for your services, but am I EVER GLAD THAT I DID. You have made it possible for a "Computer Nerd Wannabee" like myself to learn about the ins and outs of the computer without all that expensive schooling.
"I get a lot of junk mail and delete most of it, but when I see YOUR name there I save it, sometimes I even put what you have to say in a special folder just so I have it for future reference. Keep up the good work." ~J
"Steve, I just had to write you and say thank you so much for the tips you send each day. As it happened a couple of days ago, I had been going nuts trying to find out how to use my Norton to virus scan attachments. I know, it is simple, but unless one knows how, it is not. Your email came just as I had finished pulling out all my hair and was looking at my cat (long hair) with viciousness in my heart. (grin) Thank you for this newsletter." ~P
"I almost can't stand how much I LOVE your newsletters! Maybe the most valuable thing I have found on the internet! (phew, got THAT out of my system!)" ~J
"I just have to drop a little line to tell you how much a love receiving these tips everyday. I have learned so much from you, and I love the fact that it's tips "real people" can use. I'm a senior citizen and I love my computer. Now I'm getting even more out of it, thanks to you. I'm also recommending you to everyone who will listen to me." ~T
"Just a quick note to let you know I LOVE your newsletter. It is the greatest. Keep up the excellent work." ~M
"This probably won't get to you, it is probably destined for an empty email box in cyberlimbo, but in case it does, I just wanted to thank you for the time and effort you put into this publication. I've been on the Internet since 1995 but still learn a new thing from you almost every day. Keep up the good work and thank you for this ezine, newsletter, or whatever, I just call it the computer tips bible. :)" ~R
"Just wanted to thank you for all the great tips. I can't remember just how I got on your mailing list, (I'm sure I signed up for it somehow) but the bottom line is that the newsletter is GREAT. It's so good in fact, that I created a file called Comp101, and all your tips go in it. Now when I need some of that wonderful help you've given me and I've forgotten, I can go back and look it up. Just wanted you to know how helpful you've been to this old woman." ~M
"I've been building, modifying and tinkering with computers since my first Atari 400. I've written simple DOS programs and games. I've had every kind of OS Microsoft has put out up to Windows 98 and thought I had every trick possible down pat. Then I got your tips newsletter. The first one was pretty simple old stuff, but I thought, I know some beginners who might like this. So I decided to subscribe.
Well, by your third newsletter I learned a trick that I hadn't known. Since then I've learned a few more, especially some interesting desktop tricks that turned it from just the opening into a gateway into everything I do with my system. So I just wanted to say thanks for teaching an old dog new tricks.
Your tips are well presented, so that even a beginner can get up to speed quickly and you offer perfect software matches at great prices to boot. If only your page had been accessible in 1980. Thank you for devoting the time to help thousands of people." ~D
"Steve, I am new to this computer thing. Or rather the home PC type of computer thing. I worked with computers when I was in the Air Force some ???? years ago. Then, I had a dear friend who helped me out of tough spots. (like the time my classified document I had spent 36 hours on converted to ASCI!)
Anyway, I am writing to complement you and your staff on your computer tips newsletter. I don't always have time to read them, but always print them out and store them in a notebook. I keep the notebook right next to my computer. I like the way you explain things and usually find exactly the answer I need. Thank you all so much." ~C
"Wow...you guy's are simply great! Thank you for being there. I really appreciate your service, your various offerings, and the wonderful tips and instructions that you provide.
Also, thank you for your recent offering of Norton System Works 2002. I just ordered it online. What a great deal. Thanks again." ~C
