Lesson 3 - Tues 1 March
Mr Stephens taught us how to make a blog and how to do a entry to share to everyone and for everyone to read
we used ishare to make the blog, we also used Mr Stephens blog
It's quite difficult to make a blog because i don't know where the blog button is
the internet is slow since there are many people using it at the same time
classmates were distracting, this made me focus on my classmates instead on the computer

Mr Stephens introduced us to our Scout Database task.
We took a look at a sample database built in Filemaker Pro

One difficulty I experienced was when trying to save to my network home directly it did not appear on the desktop. I asked how to make it appear and now know that i need to use the 'Mount Shares' icon on the desktop first to load the shares, then do the save.
