Out and About – Week of January 8th

A week or so ago, Mother Nature bared her teeth on some of those states way south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Tallahassee, Florida, even experienced some snow. I doubt if they even have snow shovels available in that part of the country. As a result, there were a lot of drivers who were more than puzzled as to how to …

Out and About – Week of December 25th

Every year at this time, I usually come up with some lame comment like, “I’m taking the rest of the year off, so my next column will not appear until next year.” I try to be funny by saying something that I feel might come across as clever. Sometimes I succeed, and other times I feel stupid for even trying …

This week’s “Myth Buster”: Computers are more reliable, and they last longer when they’re left on all the time. FALSE. The theory was that thermal cycling, from powering computers up and down, stressed and broke the components. The fact is that thermal problems are usually from heat buildup and/or poor ventilation.

Out and About – Week of December 11th

I’d like to start off this week’s column with the “Myth Buster”. When I switch an appliance off, it might still be using electricity. TRUE. Many electronic appliances, such as TVs, DVD players, and microwave ovens, draw a significant amount of “standby power”. In the average home, 75% of the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while they …
