I'm Lost! How Do I Navigate This Site?

Well, I hope nobody ever has to use this page, as I really tried hard to make it intuitive and easy to navigate. If you do have problems, please email me and let me know what confused you. Maybe I can improve the site to help you and others out.

In the meantime, here is the general layout. Under the MindStorm banner is a row of buttons. Move your mouse over them, and they will change color, indicating that they can be pressed to take you to a region of the site. The general regions are:

Home: Moves you to the home page of the site

Software: Takes you to the area that discusses my skills as a software developer. I am always interested in hearing about serious software development projects you may have, in either Java or C++ on either PCs or Macs.

Videos: Shows you into our online store to purchase the various videos (presently 52 of them) we have produced and sell.

Links: Brings up a series of pages showing other web sites that we have found we liked.

Contact Us: Gives you a variety of ways to contact us — phone, mail, email, and also provides a feedback form and way to download our catalog.

Cart: Brings up your shopping cart and allows you to conclude a purchase of our videos.

Help: Well, you are here, so you already know what that does!

If you have gone to the Videos section, then you will find a second row of buttons that lets you choose which of the series we have produced. Hopefully the choices are obvious. If not, click them and see where you end up.

Most pages have a list of links on the left edge of the screen, like this page does. Those give you access to the specific page within the region you want. Just click on one and go to that page — just as you got to this one.

In both the Videos section and here in the Help section, there are additional navigational aids on the bottom. The Previous and Next buttons move you to the 'previous' and 'next' pages in the list, as you would expect.

The middle has two buttons. The left one shows a house (think "home"). Pressing it will take you back to our initial home page. The other one is an up-arrow, which will send you back to the top of the page you are on. Go ahead - try it now and go back to the top of this page.
