help serve The Henna Page’s mission as an Internet-based resource
for people interested in Henna and related subjects, we’ve added a
section with technical information on computers, the Internet and the
World Wide Web.
Over the years, The Henna Page has grown in size and in the range of services it offers, including electronic books, multimedia, and downloadable files. As the sites’ offerings have increased, so has the power and complexity of personal computers and the number of security threats computer users face on the public Internet.
Our plan for the technical information section is to assist you with your questions about accessing and using The Henna Page’s resources and to provide information to help you keep your computer operating safely on the Internet.
You can e-mail specific computer questions to Roy Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
