Tech – for Everyone

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

A Daily Dose of Tech

It’s a fact: over time, things grow, and expand. The Internet itself is constantly growing, and every day thousands of new websites, blogs, and ‘online services’ appear.

I find it hard to keep up! (As, other things that are constantly growing are my business and my To Do List..) I simply do not have the time to explore them all.. and I bet you don’t either. (As a matter of fact, they say over 1,000 new ‘tech blogs’ are created each month. That’s the kind of market I am in!)

Fortunately, I know a guy.


That “guy” is Rick Robinette, and for over two years now his What’s On My PC… website has been a daily read of mine — one of the half dozen (or less) remaining “daily reads”. I cannot say enough nice things about him; but the reason I am mentioning him to you, Dear Reader, is — he is reporting on the new ‘cloud computing’ developments as they happen, and bringing us the best of this new stuff. As you can see from his list of ‘pages’, below. (With a strong emphasis on free.. which I like!)

His writing is friendly, relaxed, fun, and yes, educational. He enjoys exploring fun and useful small utilities like desktop clocks and weather reports and sticky notes. For proof, here’s a few recent What’s On My PC… articles:

If you are at all interested in free software, useful tips, and/or want to get a feel for this “cloud computing”.. well, now you ‘know a guy’ too. Visit and find out why I cannot say enough good things about this great online resource.

I am pretty sure that if you do, Rick will become one of your “must reads” too!

  1. TechPaul,

    I was just checking my WordPress comments in my dashboard when I saw the pingbacks… I was going, what the???? Then I saw that friendly logo of yours and went WOW. Friend you made my day and give back a THANK YOU from the heart!

    You have been a great mentor to me and friend.

    • Rick,
      You are a good man, Charlie Brown, and it is both my pleasure and privileged to try to spread the word about your online efforts, and that “undiscovered gem on the Internet” website of yours.

      I have been doing this (being a Geek) for a very long while, and I have always been a reader (watched a lot of tech publications come and go). I believe I can – after all these years – separate the wheat from the chaff.

      I consider your work a public service. Fun as well as informative.

      It’s that simple.

      I hope you will be writing articles for many, many years to come.

  2. Paul,
    As always great suggestion on Checking out Rick’s site. I check his site everyday as I do yours and Bill Mullins. All great places to stop for an ice latte and some good reading.

  3. Good Day Paul

    Yes, Yes, Yes, and YES… Both you and Rick provide a great service to us all. And, Bill Mullins, and Paul Lubic, and more…

    It’s very hard to keep up with tech change even if you are in the field. I rely on you and all of your friends for this kind of input. Invaluable.
