Announcement Emailed to Friends and Family

It is now official, and I am on the hook!

Here is the mesage:

I have created a new "blog" called "Ask Uncle Mark", which is a place to get info on computers, the internet, and how to use them. I've worked on a few writing projects over the years, including the Computer Primer in '86 and the SandBlast in 2001, and I wanted to get some of this actually published and out. It is a way to write up my hat, as it were, and spread the joy and the knowledge about computers and all the wonderful problems and pains that go with them.
The blog is at:
If you have news feeds, like "RSS" or Atom, you can get the feed at
If you don't know what a feed is, stay tuned to AskUncleMark! As I figure it out, so I will pass it along.
Check it out. I will be adding more, including a profile of me, and hopefully a search capability. If you have questions, email me here, or at If I can answer them, I will post the answers on the blog. If not, I will sulk, probably...
If you find it useful, let me know, and spread the link around to your friends and family. The purpose of this is to help people out.
