  1. I save many of your tech tips but there are many here I missed. So I’ll peruse the list and let you know – seems like some great info. I tend not to quantify or categorize, too close to math for me, but use applications as needed. Thanks for so many good tips – you corral my nomadic computer tendencies.


  2. Oh yeah, these are timeless old beautifully simple and idiot-proof [any more adjectives/adverbs?] advice. I keep them handy as they keep me sane. Arun
