Subject:   PC Lube and Tune

Dear Colleagues -

The current issue of The NSDL Scout Report on Math, Engineering and
includes a report of a Yale-resource about 8 years old now, "PC Lube
and Tune", a personal project of Howard Gilbert, and one of the many
"hidden treasures" right here at Yale.


PC Lube and Tune

The objective of PC Lube and Tune "is to supply usable
introductions, tutorials, and education on technical subjects to the
large audience of computer users." For example, an article added
January 20, 2003, looks at the history and evolution of the
graphical user interface. The author demonstrates how computers
interpret items such as the mouse, toolbars, and menus. Another
article explains the basics of Web standards, such as HTML and XML,
and how they are used to encode information. Not all of the articles
are about computer technologies, though. For instance, one deals
with the Microsoft's anti-trust case and its associated technical
issues and implications.
