Subscriber Richard Day wrote recently about his plans to add a new hard drive to his old Windows XP computer: It is a Dell 64bit computer. It is a model e510. I have been running XP64 on it for several years. It is fast, but I would like to add a large SATA drive. […]
- iPhone and Network Printer Won’t Talk to Router
Subscriber Ed McDowell wrote to ask: Terry, I have been unable to get the router to see my iPhone and HP2550n laser jet printer. Both computers work flawlessly with the router. Any ideas? I called support at Linksys and (from what I could understand as I was talking to 2 people with heavy accents) they wanted to charge me $70 to help me.

This Week Online:
With my new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site, I now publish articles individually rather than as an on-line issue. That also means that I can link directly to the articles, as I’ve done below:

Quite a few people complained about the sturdiness of its attachment to the […]
This Week Online — Blast From The Past
Articles Newly Posted Online
I love the new design of my Terry’s Computer Tips web site — it makes article posting and maintenance much easier than before. I’m glad I switched to WordPress and the Genesis Theme Framework.
The following are new individual articles this week on my Terry’s Computer Tip web site that were originally posted in my email or online newsletters.
As above, these are now direct links to the individual articles…

- Strange Email Addresses Showing Up in Mail Bounce Messages
New subscriber Jerry Argo wrote with a question about an email problem. Jerry had more than one email problem though. I don’t answer questions from non-subscribers — and Jerry had mis-typed his email address in the question he sent via my web site’s Contact Form. Although I don’t normally do this, I checked his name […]

Longtime subscriber Peter Dunckelmann wrote to ask about a problem that he had in viewing a friend’s web site: Hi Terry I am reading your newsletters with great interest and want to ask you for a little help. A photographer colleague asked me to view her web site but to my dismay I was unable […]
