Call James for your Computer Problems - at least that's what they say here in Dallas!
Welcome to my resource web, items, thoughts and suggestions that I have found over the years that will help you keep your computer running smoothly.
I have gone for the simple text - hyperlink look to save download time and make navigation simple and quick to use. Flashy menus and graphics take time to load and really only add a little to the overall experience, IMHO (In My Humble Opinion).
First, a little background.
It all started back in 1966 when I was working for, what was then, Ma Bell. During some in house testing they thought that I had some potential for the newest thing around, computers. I was sent to IBM school in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and for 6 months studied RPG, COBOL and FORTRAN languages and coding. Shortly after my training Ma Bell went on a prolonged strike and I was young and out of work. At that place in time there were not very many jobs for that type of work and over the next few years I drifted through several jobs. I finally ended up in construction and for the next 20 years ran my own company. During that time I bought some Tandy 2000 computers ($3,000 each!) that had a 10MB hard drive and ran on DOS. I bought a graphics tablet and started doing designing, additions and changes to blueprints that my customers brought to me for homes that they wanted to build. As time went by I kept buying the "latest" operating system, being very excited over Windows 98, and the latest hardware. Construction was my living but computers had my interest and attention. I was one of the first in our area to get on the incredible Internet with a dialup modem of 9600 BAUD. Man, have we come a long way! I moved to Texas in 1998 after having had my fill of swinging a hammer and went to school at night for 2 years, getting my Microsoft Certs, MCP +I, MCSE and my Network+. I taught the MCSE course for awhile at a local college, did some tech editing on Windows 2000 books by Syngress Press and was the manager for an NT division for a large company here in Texas. Over the years I developed a lot of local contacts, building custom computers, setting up networks for local companies and trouble shooting almost everything.
I have seen many articles that will tell you how to get your computer running better, I belong to several lists that do the same, but I have found that with a few simple basic tools and the understanding of them, that you can do what the Pros do by yourself, even if you know nothing about computers. I have made lists of many common items and tried to explain them in layman's terms so that you can use each item with understanding and efficiently. I have also created an Adobe download that you can print out and follow the step by step instructions.
