Q. What is CompInfo?

A. The Computer Information Center (CompInfo) is a specialised directory of Information Technology. Most of the information you would see through a general Search Engine can be found through our Technical Topic areas. Many of our non-topic specific pages ( such as this one ) have a column to the right of the page which shows some of the more popular topics and sub-topics.

We do not seek to link to every site on the Internet, but only to those sites that seem to us to provide the best resources for those, like yourself, who are looking for good information.

Q. How do I use the Technical Topic Center?

A. Each technical topic has three columns to the page:

  • The left-hand column is the general navigation section for the CompInfo site. (See Q. What other resources are provided on CompInfo? )
  • The central column is the general information section for the specific topic
  • The right-hand column provides Quick Links to resources for the specific topic.

Each topic center has a table at the top of the page which links to the following sections (whererever information is available) for that topic:

Beginners, Glossary and Background | Technical Knowledge Bases | News | Events | Books | Magazines | Manufacturers | Products and Reviews | White Papers, Reports and Articles | Training Tools | Where to buy | Where to get help | Trainers | News Groups, Mail Lists and FAQs | User Groups | Trade Associations

There may also be a list of sub-topics. For instance, the Internet technical topic shows the following sub-topics:

Browsers | Internet | Internet Service Providers (ISP) | Mail Lists (Topics) | Newsgroups | Privacy | Search Engine | Web Servers | Website Management | Website Promotion

The right-hand column for each topic page provides Quick Links to resources for the specific topic. These include News, Manufacturers, Products, Resellers and Service Providers, Books, Training Tools, Events and Magazines. In most cases, only five Quick Links are provided, so click on the "More..." link at the end of each section of Quick Links to get more information.

Q. What other resources are provided on CompInfo?

In addition to the Technical Topics Center, which covers some 80 different technology topics, there are the following:

IT Support Centers

Information Centers

Business Centers

And For Leisure ...

Q. Can we add our URLs?

You are welcome to add your company's URL. Add it here

You may also submit News or Events information for consideration, provided there is a web page for the news/press release or event.

We also welcome submissions for entry of high-quality collections of technical resources or white papers.

Editorial discretion applies to all submissions.

Q. How can we increase the coverage of our products or services?

Opportunities now exist for you to sponsor specific topics within the site to increase the coverage of your company and its products and/or services. Please contact our Sales division , indicating the specific topic(s) you wish to sponsor.
