Technology Advice

A while back, I got a call at about 10:45 PM. It was my mother and she had a very worried tone of voice.

"Bob", she said, "we have a problem here. I don't think it's serious but I thought I'd better call you."

My parents are in their 80's and their health is not the best so when I get a call like that at that hour, I start reaching for my car keys and a phone to call 911.

Then she said, "It's this damn printer."

Ah, parents. (as told by Steve Bass)

I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.

Remember there is no such thing as a stupid question, except the one you don't ask!

Important notice from our Tech expert
April 2009

Many people have been lulled into a possibly false sense of security because nothing happened to their computer on April Foolís Day from the Conficker Worm. But there are still millions of people infected with Conficker who donít know it and nobody knows when it might act.

There is a very easy way to quickly see if Conficker is in your system.

Visit this website and depending on what pictures you see, you will be told if you are infected or not.

Good Luck
