You don't need any fancy software to develop documents for the Insulin Pumpers web site - everything we need is available on line in the developer's area (thank goodness). Up until this point, you still do not need to know anything more "technical" about preparing information for Internet web pages than how to type an e-mail message.
"Useful tools" might include:
FTP lets you quickly transfer large files to another computer.
If you don't have ftp or telnet on your computer, you may download some simple versions from the Insulin Pumpers ftp site. This will connect you to the "PUB" directory on the FTP server. Click on the Microsoft link to continue to the area where the FTP tools are located.
Clicking on the blue hypertext for each of the files will then initiate a download process for the file. When the download manager screen comes up, direct it to place these files in your Windows folder. You will have to do this separately for each file. Download the ftp, telnet, and telnet help files if you need them.
There are several of us who are comfortable with these tools and can walk "new comers" through the steps for their use. You'll certainly feel comfortable fairly soon with these basic utilities. The important point here is that you are not on your own. Others will gladly help if you ask!
