Welcome to Dawn Patrol Readers

If you’ve reached this blog via my guest post at The Dawn Patrol, welcome! Many thanks to Ms. Eden for allowing me to speak to her readers. While you’re here, I hope you’ll find useful information to help keep your computer running smoothly.

This blog is primarily about my full-time work as a technology writer and consultant. I do most of my day-to-day blogging at Maximum PC’s newly-remodeled website, and also blog from time to time at (where my current and older books are available for purchase) and my publisher’s developer-oriented website,

To get a taste of what I think about topics that are more important in the long run than the latest computer or photography gizmo, see the Beyond Technology – Thoughts on Ultimate Issues (God, Life, Right and Wrong) section of this website.

Have a wonderful 4th of July – and beyond.

TV Department

Remington Steele. Invent the perfect detective, and you might be surprised what happens when your invention becomes reality.

Best of Britain Department

Jane Austen series. Love is a serious decision, a fun-filled romp, or sometimes as overblown as a Gothic thriller. Jane Austen knew it, and fortunately so does the BBC.

Lord Peter Wimsey – Harriet Vane series. The titled sleuth faces a double-barreled dilemma when he falls in love with a mystery writer on trial for murder: even if he saves her from the gallows, can they overcome their pasts to create a future together?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
