We moved house this past Friday. My wife and the movers did the vast bulk of the work. My primary role in things was to stay the heck out of the way on Move Day, and then to ask where the Apple TV power cable had got to at the most inopportune and annoying times on the day following the move.
One of the best things about the new place is that it’s bigger, and I’ve got a dedicated office room. It’s big, has a lovely view out to trees and woods, and works perfectly for me. I feel sure it will make all my articles here 27% better than before.
Oh, and my Deputy Editor is happy with the new office too. He has found at least three serious snoozing spots in it that are acceptable to him, and given it a big paws-up of approval.
Hope you all will excuse a little bit of shameless self-promotion here. I’ve just started up a little new venture here in my hometown of Austin, Texas. I’m going to provide one-to-one iPad training, to help people get to know and master their magical new friend.
I’ve worked for many years as a network engineer / manager and IT consultant, but over the last 10 years or so mobile tech has become my biggest passion and I consider the iPad the ultimate mobile device – so I’m going to try my hand at sharing that passion and helping folks get the most out of their iPads.
My iPad training will cover everything from basics through to advanced topics and time-saving tips and tricks for novice to intermediate users. I’m also offering training on the iPhone and troubleshooting / support for both devices. At some point I may look at extending the training to the web, so I can offer to help people outside of the Austin area as well.
Anyway, if you have any friends or family in the Austin area who would like some help learning the iPad, I hope you might point them this way:
As some of you may recall, my big, beautiful Yellow Lab, Newton, passed away a few weeks back. I’ve been around and owned dogs all my life and never known a dog as big-hearted and wonderful as him. He’ll always be sorely missed and ever so fondly remembered.
This week we’ve adopted a lovely black Lab girl called Wanda. So there is a new Apprentice Deputy Dawg Editor for the site. I’m glad we found her, and look forward to working with her. :)
