Welcome to Stupid Computer Tricks! Glad you stopped by.
Stupid Computer Tricks (SCT) is here to inform regular users on what’s hot and what’s not – everything from new tech to the latest malware plaguing users around the globe. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be filling up the site with articles and links to help you navigate the murky waters of computer technology.
Sure, there are a million websites out there that provide a ton of content directed at the average computer user, but that’s the problem: it’s a TON of information to absorb, often written with bent toward advertisers and sponsors. SCT is written by technician(s) who deal with user issues on a daily basis. We KNOW what is current and what people just like you are facing.
Stupid Computer Tricks understands that all you want to do is turn the computer on, use it, read, write and play. You don’t want to get side-tracked trying to work out a problem, and you want to avoid turning your computer over to be repaired for any length of time.
The genesis of this site came from John Boatner’s (that’s me) facebook page of the same name. As a techie, I often get asked for help or advice. Just about everyone has that computer/technology geek they go to when they need help or advice – and that’s what I want this page to be.
In a connected world, problems are going to arise. There’s just no getting around it. Computers are incredibly complex machines – machines that need maintenance and are subject to the reliability of both the hardware and the software that makes them run. When trouble does rear its ugly head, it can often be a nightmare trying to find a solution. While we don’t claim to be the number one go-to for all computer problems, we strive to build a resource to, first and foremost, avoid common problems, protect your personal and private information, troubleshoot particular problems, and when to know it is time to throw in the towel and replace and reinstall.
Since we don’t take money from our readers and have very little control over the advertisements we show, we are free to be completely honest with our reviews and advice. It is equally likely you will see an ad for a product we do like, as to see an ad for a product or service we advise avoiding.
Thank you so much for visiting. Enjoy!
