This is to help newcomers to Techtite.com get an overview of this web site. This is not necessarily a FAQ per se, although it should answer most likely questions. In addition, on page 4, is A Greeting from the Editor...
First, a bottom-line definition of what this site is:
TECHtite.com is a web site created by an actual software developer (with two college degrees). Although this web site will someday (soon, hopefully!) be used to distribute personal software made by the site's creator, it is presently used for entertainment purposes, reviewing any number of products; what a software developer buys, himself, what he thinks of said products, and why. This initially includes Movies, TV, DVD, and Software. Other product categories may be added as time goes along...
Other FYI-type factoids :
Some Font Help (If Needed)...
In The Interests of putting as much on a page as possible, Techtite.com uses an 8-point font on all menus and most "sidebars" (the gray information column, at the right of the newest reviews). If the font is too small on your system, click on the "view" menu of Internet Explorer, and Choose "Font Size," and choose any font size larger than "smallest." In fact, this should make similar web pages even more crystal clear. Personally, I don't know why the "smallest" option in Internet Explorer is offered at all; what good is a font you can't read?
A Macintosh-Friendly Policy...
...Techtite is a loyal Mac-fan, and Techtite.com strives to be Macintosh-friendly, whenever possible. I have a 1999 "lime" iMac I'm particularly fond of, no matter how dated its technology is getting these days. It's a cute, standalone computer, which rarely gives as much grief as the PC...until you start looking for software!
At first, Techtite.com had Mac owners searching for the spinning Apple logos, for any review of Macintosh-compatible software or hardware. Unfortunately, as popular as Macintosh still is, finding such Mac-compatible products among all the PC-exclusives, is becoming a lot like a game of "Where's Waldo?" (a grievance that even made Techtite's editorial page in 2003). So, now there's The Mac Page for all Macintosh reviews. Enjoy!
When are You Updated?!?
...As of January, 2003, Techtite.com is a weekly "web-zine" updated every Friday. It's not going as smoothly as anyone would hope though, with the limited resources and manpower available. As a rule, each end-of-the-week update will include new reviews, and new featurettes, as follows:
