Cooking a Turkey? Fixing a Car? Head for eHow.com

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, November 18, 1999

An online do it yourself guide for almost anything. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. From how to add a printer to your computer to how to cook that holiday turkey, you'll find answers at a fun site called eHow.com. eHow CEO Courtney Rosen says if this is your first time preparing Thanksgiving, you'll find lots of help...

"For Thanksgiving, you can find out for instance how to select a turkey, or how to truss a turkey or how to carve a turkey. Also there are some things about traditions and family events like how to give thanks at Thanksgiving or how to quickly baby-proof grandma's house."

The information comes from a variety of people who have been there and done that.

"We've worked literally hundreds of experts across the country to help us create thousands and thousands of how-to's."

You name the topic....and it's probably there along with a list of the top ten most frequently asked questions...

"It changes from time to time. Although some things that we keep seeing are top ten eHows including ask for a raise or how to ask someone on a date or how to build and define your abdominal muscles, how to buy cheap airline tickets has been very popular and how to name a baby."

There's a long list of eHows that have to do with Y2K as well. It's free to use and you can even contribute some advice on your own.
