========== Duplex Printing - EZ Way to Print Tips Book

When printing any document of substantial size (the Tips book is approximately 70 pages), you'll find that the extra time and effort is well worth it to use duplex printing (that is, printing on both front and back sides of the paper).

Many popular programs, including the 4.05 version of Acrobat Reader (see Software Spotlight below) are beginning to include this functionality as a choice when you print.

How do you print both sides of the paper? Here are the basic steps, and we prepared a visual printing tutorial for you.

1. Choose the printer icon, or File > Print from the menu

2. There will be a button (if the ability to print duplex is available) that says "Duplex" or "Print Duplex". Click there.

3. Choose either odd or even (doesn't matter which)

4. Remove the pages from your printer, turn them over and reposition them how ever your printer requires. In other words, when you place the paper in the tray, the printing will actually be put on the under side of the paper (in most cases), so you'll want the already printed side up. Whether the front of the page should be facing you or not is the question, so print a test page.

5. Once you know the correct orientation for the paper, print the other side (even if you chose odd for the first pass). You will now have a document printed on both sides of the paper.

See our review below on Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.05 which now includes this feature built right in. If you have an older version of Acrobat Reader and do not plan intend to get 4.0, you can still take advantage of this feature by downloading and installing Arts Duplex. Read our review on our Traders Tools - Software Utilities for Traders page and then go get yourself a free copy.

========= Trouble Staying Online? Here's How to Stay Connected

Do you have trouble staying online while trying to receive the Bulletin Real-Time Signals, or during any Internet session?

Do any of these sound familiar?

  • It takes you several tries before you can get connected to your ISP
  • When trying to connect you get the message, "The computer you are dialing is not answering".
  • You are online browsing or handling your e-mail and you suddenly get disconnected for no reason and this happens regularly.

This can be caused by many things, but most often is one of two things:

1. Your modem is out of date OR
2. Your ISP has set it up that way (AOL and NetZero are well known for this)

Read further for ideas of how to combat these problems:

MODEM UPDATE - If you have had your computer for more than six months (even new systems can include modems with outdated drivers) go to the following web sites for additional information and/or instructions on how to download newer drivers or determine if yours are current:

56k = vUnreliable
Firmware Updates

Also, try contacting your ISP directly to ask if they have suggestions. Most ISPs will offer assistance in determining if your settings are correct (and most will recommend updating your modem drivers).

ISP KNOCKING YOU OFF - You can do three things to combat an ISP with this policy:

a. Install software (such as Stay Connected) which will fool your ISP. See below.
b. Set up your E-mail client to check your E-mail every six to 10 minutes.
c. Change to another ISP that doesn't have this policy.

The data being sent to or from your computer is how the ISP determines whether you are online. Trouble is, you can be reading a long E-mail, composing an E-mail, or reading a web page, and BOOM suddenly you're disconnected. Crazy making, that's what it is! As if it doesn't take long enough to get online in the first place.

Use Stay Connected and wave goodbye to this annoying problem. This software is designed to mimic a browser session. It will also deal with AOL's constant dialog box asking politely if you want to stay connected (who would answer "No"?).

If your problem is a limited "unlimited" policy, get Stay Connected. It is your best solution. Read their information and get a copy today. Free trial period then only $19.95 to register.

Remember, don't stay online when you are actually leaving your computer, such as going out to dinner ;-) Out of courtesy to other surfers, do log off when you are finished.
