It is amazing the number of people I meet who are addicted to chatting online. From the occasional ICQ sender, to user groups and all the flavours in between, more and more people are spanning the great divide and building friendships and sometimes long-term relationships online (I even have friends who married online before they met in person) - and raving about it. But if you are not in the know, where do you start?

Cyberflirting will definitely point you in the right direction, and give you tips on getting started, creating online personalities (what to reveal and what not to reveal) as well as some tips on how to get the attention you want online.

This book comes across as an American-style self helper to getting a date on the Internet. But if you can ignore the schmaltzy style of writing, it does take a look at the lighter side, and some might say the fun side, of the Internet.

Some of the how to tips include deciphering chatroom shorthand, choosing a screen name, creating a personal profile, and how to overcome chatroom shyness. Rabin with her can-do attitude certainly makes you feel as if you are missing out on a new frontier of friendships and fun . . . so, hey . . . why not give it a go?

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
