Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Spring-ing Forward

A Word To Faithful Friends Of Tech – for Everyone

This “Tech” D-I-Y Tips & Tricks, Advice and Answers website was launched in mid-2007. I have published six days a week (over 950 articles ago now) pretty much without a break or respite. It is time for one. For the next week to ten days, I will be here…

In my mind, anyway… Mentally, I am teleporting to a tropical paradise. Spring is here, and I have “the fever”!

I may put up some of my older posts again, or I might not. I will – most likely – continue to answer reader mail/comments, as I always do. But I must step away and recharge my batteries, before my “blogger’s burnout” reaches “critical mass”.

I thank you for your patience and understanding.. and I remind you that all 974 previous articles are available for you to peruse (or, re-peruse) in the “Previous Tips & Answers” and keyword Search tools in the right-hand widget column.

  1. TechPaul,

    You deserve a “much needed” break…

  2. Thank you Rick. As a 6x-per-week blogger yourself, I’m sure you can “relate”!

    Folks, I am a big, big fan (and daily reader) of Rick’s blog, What’s On My PC…, and I humbly suggest that if you haven’t been there yet, you’re missing out.

    • paulandrewrussell,
      I thank you for your support.

      It sure would be fantastic if I had the time and the resources to really spend a week strolling a tropical beach.. but. So I am making the tropics come to me: I bought a couple of pineapples, set my Firefox “persona” to palm trees, and every so often watch a video like this one.

      I hope you’ll keep dropping by. I will from time to time copy>paste up an a post from days past that maybe will be new to you.

  4. WOW, what a “beautiful” place for a vacation – even if it is in a dream state for your “well deserved break”

    … that pot-of-gold at the end of the rainbow
    that “tropical paradise”…who knows…

    Paul hope your brief sabbatical will be relaxing,restful and enjoyed.

    • Gaia,
      It is always a pleasure to see your name here.

      Yes, thank you. A break and “mental traveling” is already having a rejuvenating effect .. as are the warmer days. So far, it has been just what the doctor ordered.
