I’m a technology journalist. I’ve been writing (mostly) about computers for the last 15 years and using them for considerably longer.
I was originally just going to use this site to keep track of all the stuff I’ve had to figure out over the years. I get lots of ideas about little things throughout the day and don’t always get to act on them — and if I don’t act on them, I usually forget them, and then have to figure them out all over again later on.
So, I decided instead to use this site as part brain-dump for things I don’t want to forget and part blog for useful bits of practical advice about computer-related stuff that might be useful to someone else. I’ve found lots of great advice on other web sites over the years, so I’d like to return the favour, no matter how trivial. At the moment, my focus is on Mac-related matters, since I switched full-time to Mac OS X from Windows in early 2009.
I don’t have any particular plans for this site — I’m just going to post things when i think of them. If there’s something computer-related that you’ve always wanted to know how to do though, drop me a line at thegeekguides (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll see what I can do.
