Lynda is Here!!!

I would like to introduce you to Lynda....Lynda . Com. 

Lynda is the newest member of our team. Lynda was hired specifically for you. Let me tell you a few things about Lynda:
  • She is smart; she knows a little about every technology topic that you might imagine. 
  • She is a teacher, teaching primarily technology oriented topics. 
  • She is fast; she typically teaches in 1-5 minute bursts. 
  • She is available. We had a little work to get this one through HR, but her shift is 24x7x365.
  • She can help all of us out by answering our questions...pronto. She is one click away.
You can meet Lynda by following the instructions below. Spend some time with Lynda to get to know her. I think you will find her to be one of your new BFFs.
