My daughter received a Dell PC with the Windows XP operating system for Christmas. My daughter's old PC used Windows 98, and she wants data saved to her new PC. Your suggestion in an earlier column to buy a Zip drive was very enlightening but a little too expensive for me. Please tell me if you think this is a viable alternative. I was going to remove the old hard drive and install it in a spare bay in the new PC. I suspect that you can fix things for your daughter quite nicely with a $5 Ethernet cable instead of a $50 to $100 Zip drive.

I just purchased a new Nikon professional-quality digital camera that allows interchangeable lenses. My old camera produced great pictures right off the storage card. But now I usually need to adjust my pictures using Photoshop Elements before they look right to me. Do I have a defective camera? - Debra McCarthy I can't know, but I can offer some possibilities. First, there are more settings with a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex), so it could be that you need to spend more time with the manual and experimenting - always a good idea before shooting big moments.

If it seems that networkers speak a whole different language, it's because they do. Here's a glossary of netspeak: Bridge - A device used to tie two network components together, such as a phone line and Ethernet networks. Broadband - High-speed Internet access, usually through a cable modem or a digital subscriber line (DSL) service. Category 5 cable - The most commonly used cable in an Ethernet network. It usually has connectors that look like large telephone plugs. Ethernet - The most widely installed local area network technology.

Are your kids staying up half the night playing online games and chatting with strangers? Are they driving you nuts because they just won't get off the Internet even though you've told them a thousand times to do so? Wouldn't it be great if you could just somehow press a magic button from anywhere in the house and their Internet connections would be instantly severed? It's the ultimate in parental power and control - and available in a new product called Best NetGuard. There are all kinds of monitoring software that will show you where your kids are surfing, when they're going there and what they're doing once they've landed.

Before you throw your first touchdown pass across the Internet, you'll have to set up your Sony PlayStation 2 or Microsoft Xbox for online play. Don't panic. Setup is a painless process that took three minutes on each system. To start, you'll need the right software and hardware. Also, make sure that you've bought a game that is online-enabled (which costs between $40 and $60). Without a game, you'll be limited to demos. Here's the rest of what you need to know: PlayStation 2 Service is available now for broadband and dialup connections.

When I started this column 20 years ago, my kids would get excited whenever a new gadget came in for review. As they grew older, they also grew more blase about technology. Today, as adults, they're rarely impressed by anything less than a 50-inch HDTV. So my eldest son surprised me this summer when he stopped by for a visit one day, spotted a box from Netgear and asked if he could try it out. He has a more adventurous network setup than I do, so I told him to go ahead - with one condition.

The trend toward ever larger laptop computers has become a literal pain in the neck for those who have to haul them around. Thank goodness Toshiba has taken pity and introduced a gem of a full-featured mini-notebook.

When I set up a basement network between my office and the kids' rec room two years ago, I learned that making computers talk to one another is 50 percent science and 50 percent voodoo. After more sweat than I care to remember, we wound up with a cozy little system - all standard Ethernet - that serves up to five PCs and allows three to share a cable Internet connection. Unfortunately, it's limited to the basement, which, as any true geek knows, is unacceptable. So for this project, I volunteered to extend it above ground by splicing in a wireless system based on TechWorks' $279 Buffalo AirStation.

Borderline hysteria was in the air at the massive Apple booth at San Franciso's MacWorld in January when the titanium PowerBook was introduced. Steve Jobs, he of all things silicon and digital, had aimed to jump-start his struggling company; the new PowerBook G4 was hailed as the resurrection, the renaissance and real cool, too. Your faithful correspondent waited in lines 10 deep to get his hands on one of the G4 laptops, but, as with most things, it...

Danielle Weissman has always been athletic. She has played a lot of sports and danced a lot of dance - modern, jazz, ballet. But with hooping she has found her calling. "It was the first thing that clicked with me," she said. Yes, hooping. It, of course, goes beyond the hooping you did when you were 7 and then promptly left your hoop in the garage to be run over by the family car. Weissman, a 22-year-old lifelong Baltimorean who lives in Hampden was introduced to the frenetic, captivating and still somewhat underground world of hoop dancing in late 2008 and has since performed at area bars, clubs, parks and museums, and has taught a hooping class.
