Bob, When you were doing the Internet Tourbus, you had a coauthor, Pat Crispen. What happened to Pat and the Internet Tourbus?

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Internet Tourbus is still rolling. Patrick hopped off about 3 years ago, but he still posts occasionally online in various places.

Dear Bob. I don't know how much or whether to thank or blame you for turning me into an addict. Every night, when in bed, i find myself, having grabbed my mobile phone, and into your website for my daily dose of enlightenment. From the day I got to know of this site, i just can't keep off. Fortunately, its transforming me into a 'geek' which is a good thing I guess. Am humbled by your bio. Just knowing that you were already into computer world ages before I was born is tremendously interesting. Indeed you are a guru by any standards. Thank you for the good work you are doing particularly to me and my likes who savour every article with the appetite it deserves. Kudos.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks for the kind words!

Bob,

I just wanted to say thanks for all the interesting and genuinely helpful content you share. Your email update is litterally the only non-work/non-personal email I actually care to open and read!

Keep it coming!

Sincerely,
Ryan

Grew up watching a great man and legend on television. He is something I consider a hero. His name is Mr. Rogers. :-) Discovered computers around 1994-96 or so. Found another Mr. Rogers in my humble opinion, his name is Bob Rankin. You are both great men and inspirations. Thank you both for your contributions to the world.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I am stunned and humbled. Wow! :-)

Bob,
I enjoy getting your helpful e-mail updates,from "AskBob",as I did,getting them from the"Internet Tourbus".I would however,prefer to get them,on a weekly basis,instead of daily.I do realize,that many of your readers & e-mail recipients,like getting them daily.It would be nice,if you would offer an option,for people to have them come daily,weekly,or maybe even monthly.I hope you will consider this.Thank you,for your time.

Hi Bob, I love your new "ask bob rankin" articles very much, especially the one where you warn us about scams.

I really appreciate the depths you go into and the simple English a German born grandmother like me can understand.

Hi Bob.

It is really nice to know more about you and your life.
I know something about you but I didn't know that you have an online flower shop.

Your life remembers mine too, and I also have an online shop, but for products of silver and located in Japan but for internal market only (we don't ship outside).

You have been doing a good work with your Ask Bob Rankin and I am very glad that you keep posting and helping people with your knowledge.

I just want to thank you for share your articles with us.

Daniel - Aichi, Japan.

Bob, thanks for the many insightful articles that help to keep me current. I just recently became aware of your Flowers Fast connection and wondered why you don't have an ad on your website for them. It seems to me that it would be ideal, people surfing the web and realizing they need to send something to a friend or relative for some occasion and voila there's your ad.

Problem with Windows 7 64bt. Runs fine in safe mode, normal mode task host starts and uses all the memory. Sure miss squirrel.

Sir: I got STUNG by the FBI ransomware virus
and still can't get out of it. I have a Lenovo IBM Thinkpad and re-installed XP Professional. Still locked out. Then I became desperate and returned the Lenovo to original factory settings. Still
locked out! Now I've lost valuable photos.
How stupid are the people working for the FBI that a second and third version of this malware continues to freely circulate? I am poor! Can't afford to have this taken to a shop. I've researched this thing to death. Any suggestions?

HI Bob - Thank you for such timely and inforative topics. Here's one that I'd love to see you tackle (although it may take a few separate emails to cover). "With such a variety of computing options, how do you know what you need? Desktop, all-in-one, laptop, tablet, smartphone..." What does each do best, and what combination of them makes sense? What can't you do on a tablet that you can do on a laptop, for example? I'd love to see a chart with features that compares each device!" Keep the great advise coming...I look forward to it.
