A little over a week before the site's 3rd anniversary, I'm very
pleased to announce that it's reached the 1
million visit milestone. Over 1 million unique visits have been served
by EverythingComputers since its launch on October 11, 1997. Thanks to all
of you who've helped me reach that goal and here's to the next couple of

I've run out of my own supply of "Personal
Computer Secrets," so I will no longer be offering the ability to
purchase a signed copy directly from this web site. Copies are still
available, however, and you can purchase one directly from Amazon.com by

I've updated numerous pages on the site to reflect the new time slot
(or old one, depending on your perspective) for "O'Donnell
on Computers." I've also added a page about
the Computer Press Award that the program won and improved the Java
Chat page to encourage even more people to participate in the weekly
live chat. Finally, I've also
added a link to a new review of "Personal Computer
Secrets" by the Washington Times on the book's Review

Computers" is going back to its original 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

format and content will remain the same; it's simply moving to a new (and
better) place in the station's programming lineup.

June 9, 2000
In honor of "O'Donnell
on Computers'" fourth anniversary (or start of the fifth year, as
I prefer to think of it), I've made several upgrades to the site. First
and foremost, I've added my long-ago promised article on "Home
Networking and the Internet" to the Troubleshooting
Guide. You'll find both a regular and printer-friendly
version. In addition, I've also created lots of new links on the Troubleshooting
Resources page, including many that focus on home networking-related
issues. Finally, to keep things up-to-date, I've made a few tweaks to the "Computer
Shopping Tips" article.

In order to improve the RealAudio performance of "O'Donnell
on Computers," we've added a new RealAudio server for the live
feed and this year's archives. As a result, you may need to adjust
bookmarks you have made in the past. I also made a few minor tweaks to Dr.
Rom's bio page.

I've added an updated index file
(in Adobe Acrobat .PDF format) for my book "Personal
Computer Secrets." The index is freely available to both existing
book owners as well as anyone else curious to see the types of things
covered in the book. The new index improves on the existing one printed in
the book by offering both more entries as well as more complete references
for existing entries.

I've updated the site for the new year, adding
1999 archive pages for RealAudio,
Links and News,

of continuing problems with it.
