Hey there! I'm Mike and I've been a tech writer for the last 6 years, specializing in computer hardware and software. My portfolio includes articles concerning how to most economically upgrade your computer to how to use your computer as the video streaming center of your home entertainment system and display the movie on your big screen or using an LCD projector for even more movie enjoyment.
I've been building computers since the days of the Intel 8088 and 300 baud acoustically-coupled modems (Remember Wargames with Matthew Broderick? I do.).
To date, I've built over 200 computer systems from scratch, from full-on power gaming systems, to "grandma just wants to be able to check e-mail and see pictures of the grand kids." But yeah, I enjoy building those power gaming computers with 35-inch LCD flat panel displays and full surround sound built into the gaming chairs.
To keep my finger on the pulse of the industry, I am subscribed to several industry mailing lists from companies such as AMD/ATI, Intel, and ASUS, just to name a few.
If you have any questions about anything I say in any of my reviews, please feel free to drop me a line at the bottom of the review. I try to respond within 24 hours to all comments and questions.
