Techy: The Season To Do Tech Support

From my current webhost’s blog – an article about it “being the season to do tech support and how we techies do seem to spend our “downtime” (such as weekends, Christmas, Easter etc) fixing other peoples computers.
I can guarantee that any weekend I go around to see my parents, I’ll spend an hour “optimising” my Dad’s PC (antivirus checks, Windows updates, spyware removal etc etc) – and the only reason I don’t think I’ll be doing the same this Christmas is as I’ll only be doing a “flying visit” for around an hour before I go off to my Partner’s parents.
This post is over 6 months old.
This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.
This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.
Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
