Coming home after a strenuous workout in tropical conditions, I sat down to do moorelife as the phone rang. One of my ‘clients’, which I help with their computer problems on a voluntary basis. I’d love to say I do it to help them, but my motives are far less honourable: I do such things because for me it is easy, and it gives me the idea I’m being useful…..

A simple printer problem this time, quickly fixed through the help of the lady at http://www.teamviewer.com/, who allows me to see my clients desktops, with their permission of course. One happy friend across , and one happy helper here at the Goethesingel. Can one ask for more? More people to help perhaps, so I’ll just repeat the offer here as well: if you have computer problems, no where you are (teamviewer works worldwide), it is always possible to call on me. We may have to juggle timezones a bit, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

I guess the only problem would be my newly acquired netbook, who has a screen that’s just a might too small to properly run teamviewer on. But no doubt my sincere request for a solution there will soon enough bring me a secondhand TFT screen to connect to the netbook….

Love to Help,

Dre’
