See you real soon

Wrapping things up. Preparing for a new beginning.


We did it!

Thanks to everyone who sponsored me (or anyone!) in the Ride Don’t Hide event June 24. It was a great day for a bike ride, and over 400 riders participated in the event. The Kelowna ride raised $85,000. Together we contributed almost $1,000 to that. I am so grateful to each of you for your support. Thank you!


I retired from the computer business…

I retired from the business of fixing computers, printers, and local networks on Friday, June 29, 2018. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you. I’m proud of the work I’ve done, and I will miss visiting you!


…But I’m still going to write this column and newsletter.

I’m going to continue writing about computers, and I’m going to expand the scope of that writing to include more about tablets, phones, and other technology-related topics. It’s really hard to shut me up, as you might have noticed.

The column will run monthly, rather than weekly, on Castanet, and if you already subscribe to my (free! Always free!) newsletter, you’ll receive information there about where and when you can read the new column.

If you don’t subscribe, watch Castanet for news about when the column will run. It’s up to the columnist wrangler at Castanet to find a spot.



Practice safe computing!

Thank you all again. I’ll see you soon!
