Tech – for Everyone

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

A Monday In December…

Have you ever had one of those days? One of those days where everything seems to go.. right?

Well, lo and behold, I had one. And so I am busy busy. No time to write today. But I will refer you to an interesting article fresh-posted by my friend and fellow tech blogger, Rick Robinette. Those of you who write online will want to read it. And those who don’t may want to (probably want to..) read it to get a look behind the scenes at our wonderful Internet thingy.
