I’ve been helping one of my mates out with his computer recently, and then another friend wanted advice on buying a PC, maybe that’s why the idea occurred to me, you see, I get asked a lot of the same questions, and each time I write out roughly the same answer, so I figured I might as well write them down and then I can just send them to people. Then I had a better idea, put it online, all I have to do is send a link and then anyone who can use Google can find the advice too. Plus, I could then add tips for some of the things I do without thinking about it (like checking up on a store I’m buying from) and bring together some of the things I’ve written on other sites over the years.

So, with that in mind, I have re-ordered the tips page and expanded it to include some more articles, with more still to come (as I write them). Hopefully some of you will find them useful.
