MacBook For Dummies revision underway!  With the announcement of macOS Big Sur, I'm hard at work writing the Ninth Edition of my bestselling MacBook For Dummies!  Naturally, I'll keep you updated on release dates when I learn more.


Macs For Seniors For Dummies 4th Edition is on the shelves!  No matter what Mac you own - and no matter what your experience level with computers - the new 4th Edition has you covered! Learn everything you need to know about macOS Catalina and the Apple productivity apps, explained without the jargon and technobabble. Get your copy now!


MacBook For Dummies 8th Edition is a bestseller... AGAIN!  Amazon.com ranks my newest edition as NUMBER 1 among Mac hardware books! Pick up a copy to learn all about macOS Catalina and all the details on the latest Mac laptops.


I’m On Video!  Thanks to Wiley Publishing, I'm featured in two videos featured on YouTube – one covers the Mac and macOS, while the other covers today’s PCs and Windows. To watch them, click on the Watch My YouTube Videos link at the left!


Our Regular Attractions…


Jam to MLC RADIO ONLINE!  Ready for a heady mixture of classic 70’s music?  If you’re using a broadband DSL or cable modem connection and you’re using Winamp MP3 player, Windows Media Player or iTunes for Mac/PC, you can listen to my streaming Internet radio station. We’re talking CD-quality, delivered directly to your computer commercial-free!  (Well, come to think of it, there are commercials, but they’re all 30 years old.) MLC RADIO ONLINE features hundreds of pop, rock, soul and R&B favorites from 1970 to 1979 – I call it my “70’s Time Machine”, and I know you’ll love it!  To listen, visit the station’s status page at  Enjoy!


Visit The BATBOARD BBS online!  Would you like to experience the text-based online world the way it used to be – you know, before that “Web” thing took off?  If so, I’m proud to announce that a character-based Telnet connection is now available to my classic character-based BBS! The BATBOARD has been online continuously since 1984, with a selection of great online games, online chatting between members and what could be best described as a “free-for-all” message base.  Aliases are allowed, and no modem necessary… all you need is a Telnet client for Windows (macOS users don’t even need a separate client). Click “Visit My Classic BBS” in the menu to your left. Enjoy – and if you’re a fan of fantasy gaming, don’t forget to try out our selection of multiplayer games, including Legend of the Red Dragon!
