Assorted resources that I regularly use. You might find them useful too.

Do you see technology as a strategic asset or a necessary evil?

Tim speaks multiple languages.  He speaks Ignorant User, in which he can turn computer jargon and complicated issues into layperson’s terms and present them in a friendly, knowledgeable, and easy-to-understand way.  I’ve also heard him speak Professional Computerese, when he talks to my husband, who is a network manager, or to the other computer professionals at my place of employment.  He knows his Mac’s inside and out, both current and vintage models.  I can count on him to provide me with the education I need in a gentle and respectful manner.  And I can also count on him to give me expert information and practical advice to help me make good decisions on maintenance, upgrades, and choices in software and hardware.  He’s bailed me out both at home and at work numerous times, and I know all I have to do is call, and he’s there.  On top of all that, he’s a really nice guy.
