Module 1 - Telnet task

Yeah!!! Telnet ... I remember using this years ago...!!

So here are my steps ... so proud so proud!

Went to the start menu and clicked on the run box either my computer was slow but geesh took forever to come up! Anyhow came up with "escape character is "CTRL + ]and then microsoft telnet> ..... yes ... I was there!!!

I then looked at the screen and started a conversation with my computer and yes .. it did not talk back! .. How rude!
So I took its suggestion and asked for help ?/ (enter)
Gave me a whole list of commands .. by this stage I was pretty chuffed with myself ... almost felt like a pro! then selected "o" to open a port (now Im talking the lingo) and then space and typed the then more questions some kind of screen thingy ... yes went back to our discussion board ... thank god for smart people.! went back to telnet and selected NCSA VT100 and would you believe it .... it loaded the library catalogue ...then I did my bit and went to search for Benna what's his name and then buggered up the email part....Kinda .. forgot to go to the print part but don't worry ... I figured it out!!

Anyhow to cut this Soapie short ... manage to get the email from the library to my student account ... what a champion huh? simple I know ..but hey's between you me and the world ..who is to know... stay tuned for my next episode

Tasks from Module 1 .... OVER AND OUT

Module 1 - The Readings

I have finished the readings in Module 1.

Yes well, lot's made sense, little confused around a couple of things but, by the talk that is going on in the discussion rooms, I'm glad I am not the only one. I want to ask questions but I think I might attempt the tasks first and then go on and share my knowledge, there are so many helpful people, pity I can't contribute in that sense yet.

But that is ok ....

Well have to go and try out the first task ... telnet ... .... OVER AND OUT.

I'm no longer a virgin blogger!!!

Yes you had better believe it!!!
I have no idea what I am doing but hey I think I am a natural!......
So I would like to think :OP

Well I now have my blog/dear diary/confession page and I am about to start my Module 1 for Net11...I have to say I am a little scared about this degree but I will stick to it!Determination has set in and thank god our tutor for this subject is not a stick in the mud .... (Hi Cynthia!!! *waves*)

People are really friendly in the discussion rooms and are really getting into it all but I am finding it a little strange to get back into the chat world after being out from it for so long. I am finding that I am talking to my and words are just staring back. I feel like what I am thinking is dumb,lost and not sure what is going on but I think that is more of me being a little nervous about this whole thing.

Anyhow I will be trying really hard to come up with some kind of intelligent talk or not and just stick to asking stuff.
