A year or two ago, we asked our content experts to create “Top Picks” pages on a number of topics. Creating sets of useful links was a great idea (and a big shout-out to our experts for making them!), but we made one big mistake. Can you guess what it was?
SECURITY ALERT – Think before using this or any online fax service to send documents that may contain confidential information. Online services work by having you upload your document to their servers. Your documents are then no longer under your direct physical control. END OF ALERT
If you occasionally need to fax a short (1-3 page) Word document or PDF file that’s on your computer – and you’re not in a rush – here’s a free online service called faxZero. You don’t need to create an account; just go to the website and fill out the form to send a fax.
The UUA runs a mailing list server for both discussion lists and announcement lists. A number of discussion lists are active, invaluable places where UU congregational leaders and activists share stories and advice.
ITS regrets to inform you that there is a glitch with some of the files on our intranet (internal website). Internet Explorer 8 refuses to download some DOC files that contain forms. Fortunately, you can download them in Firefox, Google Chrome, and other versions of Internet Explorer.
If you run into a problem you might want to retry with another web browser. When your computer is upgraded to Windows 7, it will upgrade to Internet Explorer 9, which should fix the problem as well.
As always if you have any questions let us know by email at helpdesk [at] uua.org or phone at extension 109.
Just a quick note about where to get a copy of Remote Desktop Connection for Mac (the program that lets you connect to Jefferson). A couple of the old download locations have been moved or taken down, but you can still get it directly from Microsoft. Or if the official Microsoft program isn’t your style you might want to check out a great alternative: CoRD.
People don’t read web pages the way they read magazines or books. If they don’t see what they are looking for right away, they click a link, or press the Back button in their browser, or use the search box. Jakob Nielsen (the web usability guru) calculates that people have time to read perhaps 18% of your words before they move on.
