About this site

The best way to learn about computers and software is still to jump in headfirst, search the web when you hit a wall, and repeat the process until you finish what you are doing. Then you start a new project.

Having benefited from the free content that so many others have contributed to the web, especially when it comes to computers and software, the Halogen Bolt blog is my way to pay it forward and share some of what I have learned along the way. That is why the front page articles cover computers, software, and getting the most out of your tech, while other topics are included in the back pages.

On a minority of articles, you may notice one or more advertisements. These exist to help pay for the site's server space and upkeep so that it may become self-supporting. The site also includes Google Analytics to help understand which content is most in-demand.

Over 13,000 people have visited the Halogen Bolt, and I hope you are excited about it, too. Thank you for visiting.
