Georgean's Tech Tips

Georgean's Tech Tips will be a monthly feature at Volunteer Today. You can learn about a variety of technical and electronic means for working with volunteers. It is by no means limited to the computer. Some volunteer programs are providing on-call volunteers with cell phones. Visit this page monthly for helpful articles. 

"Don't byte off more than you can view."


I admit I have the February Blah's and I need to laugh! So, in this will be a somewhat whimsical issue of Tech Tips. We will continue our visits to Volunteer Department websites, this month it will be a hospital. We will also giggle and moan over some cyber bytes of wisdom!

February's Volunteer Department Website

Trinity Medical Center in Rock Island Illinois has a website at: http://www.trinityqc.com. There is a link to the volunteer page towards the top of the hospital's main page.

The actual volunteer page has quite a bit of information on volunteer positions. The positions are organized in columns telling the location and if there is a current need. Clicking on each of the position names gives you additional information such as a short description. Contact information is clearly displayed and the site was updated recently.

If you are looking for ideas for website design, this is an interesting one to view.

Please feel free to send to me the URL of your Volunteer Department's website at georgeanjc@aol.com.

Bytes of Wisdom

Here is some cyber humor to chase the mid-winter blues away!

- A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single click.

- You can't teach a new mouse old clicks.

- Pentium wise; pen and paper foolish.

- What boots up must come down.

- Anywhere you hang your @ is home.

- Too many clicks spoil the browse.

- The geek shall inherit the earth.

- Fax is stranger than fiction
