The halls of Geek Tower were alive with music and merriment this week, as the crew of It’s Geek To Me celebrated our milestone 400th issue!  It’ll probably take Clyde the Janitor days to sweep up all the confetti, and we’ll probably be pulling Silly String® out of the ductwork in the break room for […]

Issue #399: Mar 15–21, 2015

Looks like it’s Mac week here at It’s Geek To Me!  As I’ve previously said, I’m not much of a Mac expert.  If anybody out there, perhaps from a local Mac User’s Group, would like to step-up as a subject matter expert, I’d love to be able to use you as a resource when Mac-specific […]

Issue 398: Mar 8-14, 2015

Q: I hate my new computer. It’s a Lenovo G50 with Windows 8.1, AMD A6 and 12g RAM. I use Webroot as my security software. I am using a program Pokki, that restores the look of Windows 7 and hides the all the “charming” crap that should be reserved for tablets. But I digress. I […]

Any suggestions on how to “easily” backup the data to another drive? – Terry P. Fort Walton Beach, Florida A: That’s very forward-thinking of you, Terry.  Let’s be sure everyone knows what […]

Issue #394: Feb 8–14, 2015

Q: I find most of the operation of Windows confusing at best. I have more questions than you could possibly have time to answer but I’ll start out with a couple. The first is why there seems to be so much duplication. On the C: drive there is “Program Files” and “Program Files(x86)” which seem […]

Issue #393: Feb 1–7, 2015

Q: A year or two ago I asked about programs temporarily stopping – The title bar on the window says “(not responding)”. Most respond after a few to several seconds. At the time you felt I has joking and used my question in your “humor” column. However, it is real and I still have the […]

Issue #392: Jan 25–31, 2015

I’ve received numerous e-mails from readers responding to the column about malware lurking in smartphone flashlight apps (I.G.T.M. # 389, Jan 4-10, 2015).  The replies ranged from bare URLs, which I was apparently intended to visit and read (but, with no accompanying explanation, I often just ignored) to pages-long diatribes about how great certain particular […]
