“What can we help you with?

If you need help you could email me with a specific question ~ I’ll do my best to answer promptly. You could join the forum by registering or logging in to the Forum and start a topic. Someone or me will be monitoring it. The Forum is really a great way of getting things moving ~ take your time registering, there is no rush. If you get it right the first time you won’t have to do it again right? Remember you are here to have fun as well. It is OK to make mistakes. From my experience everyone on the Internet is kind, friendly and willing to share. If you are not able to share much at the moment ~ don’t worry…YOU will become a resource too! Sure there are scams, spams and pushy marketers, you are not stupid and never part with your hard-earned cash immediately, think about it, book mark it ~ if its any good it will be there tomorrow despite : Act Now! Limited Offer! Only You! Expires in 24 hours! Crap! LOL.

There are 30 day free trials too. Early on I downloaded everything, the try-before-you-buy scheme is great. But for God’s sake don’t install anything that asks for global dominance of stuff like associating all your .jpg files with the program. Unless its from someone like Microsoft or Google. Always trust Google and you won’t go wrong. What is more all Google stuff is generally free. Picasa is a great example, it will index all the images stored on your computer. Yes all of them, even the one you took of your dog five years ago that you had totally forgotten about. Google Earth is another great example. BTW if you don’t like a program or its too expensive then uninstall it. If the program is any good it will uninstall easily. I tend to dislike money back guarantees that ask for your credit card details and promise a refund (tho I use it myself) but if you don’t like it take them up on it. If you ask and they don’t then report them! You have rights!

PC Maintenance. MUST be done. You are probably running Windows so once a week get rid of all those Temp files for example. DeFrag regularly. A lot of these tasks can be automated. Please please back up regularly, set a restore point regularly. Don’t trust your computer (sorry ~ had to be said), trust yourself. Your computer has a memory, don’t trust it, it may be showing you old stuff that is no longer real, no longer up-to-date. Close down your computer and start fresh. If any program, browser, plug in wants to update itself then just do it. Always have the latest version, trust Adobe for example. Pay for a good anti-virus program like Norton, don’t scrimp on essential stuff ~ you will regret it. P.S. If you are doing anything : save every 5 mins, save before you have a cup of coffee, Save before you fuck up not after.

Finally, what you are reading is free. This template was free. Searching for stuff is free. The Forum software was free. Twitter is free. This domain costs me $28 per month. My Internet connection costs me €40 a month. I only have a basic Laptop. I have experience, I have time. Its yours. What’s special?
