Put PC and Gadget Help Desk to work for you and your tech

My latest book, The PC and Gadgets Help Desk, is my most ambitious troubleshooting book yet. It shows youCover for Mark Edward Soper's The PC and Gadget Help Desk how to:

  • Back up your Windows computers and devices (tablets, all-in-ones, laptops and desktops)
  • Back up your Android and iOS smartphones and tablets
  • Connect your mobile devices and Windows devices to HDTVs and home theater systems
  • Stop attacks on your devices
  • Recover lost data…

…and much more. Check it out at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, or directly from the publisher.

Many Thanks to Everyone…

…for making last night’s public library program on Preserving Your Old Family Photos possible. I want to thank McCollough Branch head librarian Glynis Rosendall for asking me to do this presentation, to WNIN-FM88 for interviewing me, to the over 50 attendees who asked great questions, to those who lent me their photos for some demonstrations, to those who purchased books, and to my wife, McCollough Branch children’s librarian Cheryl Soper, for helping me set up and take down my equipment.

For a taste of what we covered last night, check out these samples from the PowerPoint preview I ran before the presentation started:

… 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.

Photoshop Layer Power! Catch the Fever In Evansville, Indiana …

… Sunday, May 20, from 2-4PM at Central Library’s second floor meeting room. I’ll be demonstrating the power of layers in Adobe Photoshop to the Southwest Indiana PC Users Group. I’ll be using Photoshop Elements 5.0, but if you’re using other recent versions of Photoshop Elements or Photoshop, you’ll also find this a useful demonstration. I will have copies of my recent books available for purchase, and I’m happy to sign books – bring copies you already have, or pick up some at the meeting (my office is moving this summer and I’m offering great deals!)

Come early, as the Evansville Public Library system is also kicking off its summer reading program that afternoon. There’s free underground and surface parking at the library and nearby, but spaces may be scarce from time to time. See you there!

Central Library is at the corner of Walnut St and Martin Luther King Jr Blvd in downtown Evansville.

I appreciate the opportunity to speak again to the Southwest Indiana PC Users Group, as I have several times before:

Posting here’s been pretty light of late, as I’ve been putting the finishing touches on my book Maximum PC Microsoft Windows Vista Exposed, but, I haven’t exactly been idle.

Enjoy!
