(1)  (Class Demo) Go to and get a Yahoo Personal Page.  If you have a Yahoo Messenger account, the same ID works.   With some "hacking" you should be able to do this on your own.  Hint: click the My Yahoo to get started. Once you have your Yahoo page, use the Add Content then choose Yahoo! Services to add functions.  Be sure and include the following: (a) Message center, (b) Yahoo search, (c) Calendar, (d) Briefcase, (e) Bookmarks, (f) Yellow pages, (g) Maps, (h) Phone Search.   Then click Change Layout button, to set up your personal Yahoo page.  Your page should look somewhat like mine.  You may be required to show your Yahoo page with the elements listed included on your yahoo page to the instructor for the next quiz.  You should know how to use the My Yahoo functions on your page..

(2) Review previous lab material on email:

     E-Mail Intro
    CSUB Runner Mail

    Study understand and be able to perform the following in RunnerMail--takes a little "hacking", there are no instructions on this in the documentation.  You have had a laptop for 8 weeks now so you should have developed some problem solving skills.  Give it your best shot!
    (a) How would you set a vacation message in RunnerMail--Hint: you will have to use the Help in RunnerMail to answer this.
    (b) How would you set up an address book, people to whom you send frequent messages--you will have to use the Help in RunnerMail to answer this.  Hint; click the ? in compose.
    How would you redirect all messages from your RunnerMail to a diffirent email account

(3)  Define the Terms with an "*" and improve on definitions of terms you already have in your dictionarySave your definitions in  your portfolio and place a copy in your homework folder. Wording should be yours  (not just copy and pasted from another source) clear, complete and understandable to someone like your self but not in this class. 

Erase all files in your homework folder.  Place a copy of all homework, in red above,  in your homework folder and bring to next class to place in class homework folder on the transfer drive
