About Me

Here is more information about me, Marlo Strydom, and the how and why of creating this website.

From the earliest memory of interacting with the first home gaming console plugged into the TV, I have always loved technology.

But when I came across the first computer at my primary school, I knew I found my life’s passion.

I spent my childhood savings on my first computer when I was 10. From that day forward, I never went without owning a computer, upgrading it every few years.

It continued to be my obsession until I became a senior computer programmer and engineer for a company that manufactures its own touchscreen interactive music systems.

So you are in good hands! I have many years of experience in using, repairing, building, and even teaching people complex tasks about computers and technology that require training in the company I worked at. I also provided tech support for our clients, whether by phone or out on location.

Occasionally, I consult with other companies to help train their staff.

The journey in building this website has provided great pleasure, and I hope to help as many people as possible to use computers confidently.

I’ve begun writing full-time on this website and couldn’t be happier. Hearing from various people sharing their insights and joining in my passion for learning more about computers and the technologies surrounding them has been an absolute joy.

If you want to grow your knowledge in computing, look over the Basics category so you can start seeing how to do small tasks.

This is a great place to start, and from there, you can look at taking on more challenging tasks.

This is where I hope a starter course will come in handy. Hopefully, it won’t be too long until I can start working on one.

Until then, I’ll be working to write more articles to provide enough information to help as many people as I can.

So, if you have anything helpful to contribute, like an article suggestion, please let me know by sending me an email.

I am working all the time to produce helpful articles and hope that I can continue to add helpful content that everyone enjoys.

You must take the next leap to pursue your desires, despite the strong feelings of fear. If you don’t, you’re stuck and more unhappiness will ensue.
