Happy Holidays from Daves Computer Tips!

Santa_ClausIt’s that time of year again… No matter what your beliefs are it is a time of celebration, family, thankfulness, and reflection.

Looking back on the past year here at DCT is nothing but a pleasure. From quality content to the great authors I have the pleasure of working with and backed up by awesome readers (like you) DCT amazes me every day. I am constantly astounded by the time and effort the DCT staff dedicates to our readers as they go about finding software and writing informative articles to share with you. I’m equally astounded by the readers who take time out of their day to actually visit DCT and often share their own knowledge through comments and forum posts, after all that’s what DCT is about – sharing knowledge and developing relationships!

Who knew way back in 2006 that DCT would come so far? Not me!

This isn’t to say that 2012 was without problems. We’ve experienced server problems and worked our way through what often seems like a million smaller issues (whew), but in the end we prevail and improve. The most notable improvements in 2012, for me, were the move to a larger server and increasing our content for Apple products.

In 2013 we’ll work hard to add additional authors, information, and viewpoints in hopes of providing our readers with useful news, tutorials, and information.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your participation, kind words, and support of DCT, but if I had only one wish it would be that each of us have a bit more patience, a bit more time with our loved ones, and a truly wonderful new year!

Now for a little lighthearted fun…

About the Author

David Hartsock

Executive Editor/Owner/Admin of Daves Computer Tips and all-around good guy - Dave's interest in computers began in the early 1980's during the Apple II era. In the early 1990's the PC began to replace proprietary and mainframe devices in Dave's industry so he began to learn and experiment with the PC. Through DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and now Windows 10. Dave became the "go to" guy for friends, family, and coworkers with computer problems. Daves Computer Tips was born in 2006 in an effort to share these experiences with others in an easy to understand, plain English, form.
