Wishing for Spring—Again!
It's been a year since our last issue and much is happening. And like
last year we are all waiting for the Spring sunshine and flowers, even more
so since we were so cold for so long this year.
We have a lot going on. John Myers leads off with an article about the
purchase and use of Adobe Presenter. This is a tool designed to help you
make professional looking PowerPoint presentations to share on the Web and elsewhere. He also
has some staff changes to tell you about.
Joe Lear has two timely articles as well. The first outlines the philosophy
and setup of backup operations for your file servers, from the 2004 installation
of your first servers to present policy as related to backup operations.
This article is primarily informational and he does have an alternative
you may find useful. Joe's other article details the procedure for upgrading
Office Communicator. Communicator is a useful tool that I will probably
push many more of you to use once it's upgraded. You'll find it quite useful
in replacing a flurry of emails if you and someone else are having a rapid
fire conversation. It's an Instant Messaging tool that has voice and
video features for an enhanced experience.
This month I talk about Adobe Connect Pro. There are 7 articles reviewing
some of the basic usage of the tool including permission levels, login,
and microphone setup. The articles are in a step-by-step format with illustrations,
and a reduced emphasis on narrative. The idea is to help give you a quick
leg up on some of the basic tasks you'll need to master in Adobe Connect. Watch
for another issue of Inner Circuits next month as we have a lot more to
focus on with Adobe Connect. I'm working on materials for that so please watch for them.
Finally the last article talks briefly about InnerCircuits in a Blog
format, be sure to check it out.
