Multimedia Workshop


A friend once told me I could have been a Multimedia Guru if I'd tried harder. Well, maybe it's not too late! So as self described Guru -- and also because people keep sending me email asking me questions so why not reuse the answers I send them -- here is the "Ask the Guru" column.
