Kawartha Lakes Region Events!
We are in the process of gathering information on events in the Kawartha Lakes Region, Peterborough, Lindsay and beyond. Please check back.
We were the first Internet provider and hosting company in the region, with offices in Peterborough, Lindsay (City of Kawartha Lakes) and Haliburton. Many attempt to claim that prize! Check our sites, if you need to be on all screen sizes go to atq.biz. Kawartha now fits any screen size!
The Business started in 1989. Internet began in 1992 and we have created or updated more then a thousand web sites. Our own The Trent Severn Waterway or Ontario Cottages are designed to supply information plus vacation property listings.
Below are links and a brief description to tolls we use. If you are not comfortable with installing software or do not have the knowledge to decipher computer terminology, that may be required by the links we provide, then please to not proceed.
Anti Virus Scanners
There are numerous anti-virus scanners on the market. If you are more comfortable with a commercial one then do so. Here is the link to AVG, the free product we recommend:
When it comes to Office Suites we wanted one that would seamlessly open all file formats from other suites and save to those formats as well. The one we use is Open Office Suite and recommend it.
What good is having a graphic editor if it does not open all graphic formats and save to those formats as well. We recommend inkscape for that criteria.
You want a program that works with ease, has many options like notifying you when an email arrives and will handle multiple accounts all on the same screen. We recommend Mozilla's ThunderBird and you may also wish to try their browser, FireFox.
Using HTML editors is somewhat like having a Content Management System, most people are lost! We recommend two editors. One, Arachnophelia for the beginner who simply wishes to create a great webpage and PsPad for those more technical who need to open and use most file extensions.
There is no simpler way to upload your files then with a good ftp client. Thee are many out there and most are great. We recommend FileZilla.
