Fred Volking's Column
About the Author

Howdy pardner. My name is Frederick. My friends call me Farmer Fred cause Iím a down-home sort of olícoot and I donít take easy with high brow technology. Iíd rather whip out my shotgun and shoot those dang buzz words than try to remember them all. So in these articles, Iíve tried to explain technology in words and pictures that my olídog might even understand. Simple easy explanations. So simple, that sometimes my explanations might be a bit simplistic.

My intent is to give ya the foundation ya need to go read those other articles filled with those $20 words.

So pull up a chair, pour yourself a lemonade, and enjoy your reading Ö
