Woohoo!  Another podcast and I’m still here to speak about it.  I am finding it is tougher than I thought to put together these weekly shows so if I miss one now and then, don’t fret!  Saying that, it it wasn’t for Brent at PC Computer Help,
none of these podcasts would even exist!  Thanks Brent, I owe you big time!
