How Your PC Can Help You Have a Merrier Christmas
No doubt many of you have been doing your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your computer desk, but once the postman has been and the presents are wrapped, there’s no need to leave you PC out of the festive fun. Why not use your P.C to store and print all those delicious Christmas recipes? You could store them in a document using a word processor such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice.org Writer or even buy software specially designed for the job. Mountain software makes a recipe database that you can read all about

Having a Christmas party? Why not use your PC as a jukebox? Modern PC’s can store and play huge amounts of music on their hard drives. Check out our free utility of the month for our pick of the best MP3 players and for some traditional Christmas music, visit
Need to keep the kids occupied in the run up to the big day? Even the best behaved kids become hyperactive when Santa’s visit is getting close. Keep them occupied making
decorations or craft items
or even with a festive game or two. Thanks to my friend Eloise for suggesting the following two great Christmas sites for kids

Tip of the Month – Share Photos Easily with Photobucket
Are you going to take lots of pictures this Christmas? If so, are you going to share them with friends all around the world? Perhaps you had planned to e-mail them, that’s fine for two or three pictures but sending lots of pictures like this can quickly clog-up in-boxes, especially if your friends are on slower internet connections. If you have more than just a handful of photographs you might want to consider signing up for a Photobucket account. Once you have uploaded your pictures to Photobucket, via the easy to use web interface, you can send the link to anyone anywhere so they can see your pictures, or even your videos if you have a suitable digital video camera. Don’t want the whole world seeing your pictures of Grandad sleeping off his Christmas dinner? No problem, simply set a password for your gallery and only share it with your friends. Photobucket is free to join and lots of fun to use,

Free Utility of the Month – Winamp
Having a party over the festive season? Why not invite your PC and a copy of Winamp along? Winamp is a free media player that plays a wide variety of music and video formats. Need some accompaniment to the music? Turn on Winamp’s excellent visualizations and hook your computer to a television or large monitor for instant in-home disco lights. When you are done partying, Winamp can help you organise your MP3 collection too, as well as syncing with your portable MP3 player. An excellent alternative to both Windows Media Player and Itunes, check out Winamp this holiday season by visiting
