Dear Reader,

I did it! My dream trip to Florence with my daughter and step-mom was phenomenal! The best part was the way my plan came together with a fabulous rented apartment in the heart of the city and a variety of guided tours spread out every couple of days.

#2. Computer Questions and Answers

by Barbara J. Feldman

Computer Questions and Answers Printable (** for premium members only)

Oh, the joys and terrors of technology! We’ve all been through it. Sometimes computers can be so useful, and other times they can be so frustrating. To help with your technology hurdles, here’s my personal list of favorite tech gurus, each with a huge online archive of questions and answers. Like the Internet itself, these free websites run 24/7 to help find answers when you need them. Each guru also sends a free newsletter to keep you updated on new topics. I recommend signing up for a few of them.

Ask Dave Taylor
Dave Taylor covers a lot of territory, answering questions about iPhones, Facebook, Unix, Limewire, HTML, blogs, CSS, building websites, Mac OS, and even “D) None of the Above.” Site search is located in the right-hand menu, where there is also a listing of popular articles, a category listing, and a big red Ask Dave button. When you get to the Ask Dave page, you have three choices: search his site, post your question at a for-a-fee site endorsed by Dave, or scroll all the way down the page to send Dave a question for free (as long as you don’t check the “Help! I need immediate assistance” button, which is fee-based.)

Ask Leo
“Helping people with computers … one answer at a time.” Leo Notenboom is a retired Microsoft software engineer who has been answering tech questions online since 2003. Best way to find an answer is to use the search function (scroll down the front page to see it.) Popular and recent answers are listed in the right-hand column, or peruse answers listed by category (look for the Categories link near the bottom of the page.) Although Leo does cover a variety of Apple topics, and many questions are applicable to all platforms, he fields a lot of Microsoft, Hotmail and Windows questions.

Jake Ludington’s Digital Lifestyle
Jake Ludington is a multimedia expert, and answers questions about digital video and podcasting, as well as computer productivity tools, Macs, iPhones, and social media such as blogging and Facebook. His “Ask a Question” form is easy to find (in the upper left-hand corner of every page), as is his site search (upper right-hand corner.) Many of his tutorials include video.
