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
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.
