Thread: General Computer group?

    General Computer group?

    Howdy,

    I was wondering which group you considered suitable for "general computer"
    questions? I'll give you a for example:

    We have a training facility in our office we use for training, both of
    training our folks on various computer languages and training our customers
    on their software. In it we have an older Sony projector that shows what's
    on the instructors PC up on the whiteboard. Being old, it only does 640x480
    x 16 colors. We want to upgrade to something that'll do 800x600 by at least
    256 colors. As you can see this is what I call a "one off" activity, it's
    not exactly a programming question but it's something a lot of programmers
    (especially those that also do training) may have dealt with. I wanted to
    ask the local groups, but didn't know exactly where to go.
    Enterprise.General maybe?

    (By the way we are also looking for software to push what's on the
    instructors PC to the other PCs in the classroom via the network, sort of
    like lap link in reverse.)

    If you don't have a general questions group, perhaps you should consider
    one. A place where we can go to ask these "one off" questions that we all
    have to deal with but are not directly related to programming. There's no
    substitute for experience, and I've found the folks who hang out in these
    areas have the most experience of anywhere else on the 'net.

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Robert: Thanks for asking. We do have a group for off-topic posts: the
    off.ramp. If you find the volatile atmosphere there disconcerting, however,
    feel free to post your "one-off" questions in the general programming group
    of your choice. Others may appreciate your using the words "Off Topic" or
    the abbreviation "OT" in your subject heading (e.g., "OT: Best SVGA digital
    projector?")
