Ask Dave Taylor

I met Dave Taylor in person a little less than two years ago at an Internet entrepreneur conference in Las Vegas. Prior to that I had communicated with him via email for about 3 years or so. Dave has more computer brain juice than a ripe watermelon.

Dave has written 16 computer books. His latest is Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML and CSS.

Anyway, he loves to help people and answers questions that you may have about computer programming, servers, HTML questions, UNIX, etc. When you visit his AskDaveTaylor website, you will see what I mean very quickly.

I don't care if you are a programming wizard or a person who barely knows computers, Dave has an abundance of computer programming and software information that might get you out of a jam. The trick is to have the patience to read through many of his past questions and answers. Not only may you find the answer you need, but you might also discover two or three other gems along the way.

Dave really knows his stuff. I challenge you to stump him. If you do, he will buy both you and I a chocolate Aglamesis malt. He doesn't know that yet, so remind him if he says he doesn't know the answer to your question.

Ask Leo

Are you puzzled from time to time about why your computer crashes and just doesn't see eye-to-eye with you? What about all of those horrible popup ads that have invaded your computer? My guess is your computer is infected with bad adware and maybe spyware.

I'll bet you would love to ask an expert, someone you can really trust, a question to find out how to get your computer back to where it was the day you took it out of the box. Well, my buddy Leo is the man! Wait until you read his biography. Leo has got more computer expertise than I have power and hand tools!

Go to and search through his past questions and answers. I'll bet Leo has already solved your problem. If not, just ask him a question and there is a great chance he might get back with you.

One of the reasons I like going to is the tremendous amount of helpful Windows tips you will find. It should come as no surprise as Leo was hired by the Bill Gates team back in the mid-1980's as a software engineer. Leo knows Windows like I know circular saws.

You will also discover an enormous amount of questions and answers concerning spyware and adware. Malicious spyware is dangerous and you should read what Leo has to say about cleansing your computer and keeping it free of this sinister software that installs itself as you simply surf the Internet.

Tell Leo I said "Hello!" Oh, also ask him how much he likes mocha chip ice cream. You don't need to get back with me as I already know that answer!
