Get the Rest of the Story – at

I’ve been blogging regularly for several months at as well as elsewhere. If you haven’t caught my blog yet, here’s what you’ve been missing:

  • How to use the Windows Vista Recovery Environment (unlike Windows XP’s Recovery Console, it works – and you will understand what it’s doing)
  • How to help Windows XP and Windows Vista share folders with each other
  • How to find out how much working RAM Windows has, and why you may need to add more than you think for adequate performance
  • Coverage of Windows Vista Ultimate Extras: useful added features, tools, and (let’s be fair) a bit of additional eye candy as well especially for Vista Ultimate users

Thankfully, it’s not too late to dive in. Enjoy!

… I have digital imaging in Windows Vista covered.

Keep an eye on the continuing Windows saga (Windows XP fans also get their fair shakes).

Off to Orlando …

I’m heading off to Microsoft’s Tech Ed 2007 extravaganza in Orlando this week. While I’m down there, I’ll be recording a half-hour video podcast for my publisher – I’ll post links to the video and audio versions when they’re available.

Before I’m out the door, let me say a big thank you! to the Southwest Indiana PC Users Group for inviting me to talk about layers in Photoshop Elements and Photoshop on May 20th. It was a well-attended meeting, with lots of great questions (and, I hope, some decent answers from yours truly).  The notes from the meeting will be available shortly at the SWIPCUG newsletters page.
