Something Old, Something New
I'm a firm believer in making computers work for you - whenever I have a problem that I think computers should be able to help with, I'll usually fire up a web browser and start searching - 99 times out of a 100 someone has blazed the trail before you and written it up.
This blog is all about those other times - times when I've come up with a solution myself (yes, I'm tech savvy, can program in a variety of languages and am a bit of a geek, but I've also spent years helping my non-tech friends and family enjoy what computers are good for - legwork).
The aim of these pages is to document in a clear and simple way, steps that regular folks can follow to enjoy the benefits of various projects and solutions I've come up with over the years ... stuff that I think will be genuinely helpful but that just isn't out there on any other website.

It goes without saying that I hope you find something useful that you can use in these pages - and if it turns out my efforts have saved you time or money, any sort of donation would be greatly appreciated to help keep things ticking over ...
