DoctorLaptop: I heartily urge anyone with a laptop computer problem to consult with Dr. Laptop. I did yesterday, seeking advice about two competing word processing programs. I am, much like my Dell Latitude, an antique and especially in the dark when it comes to the digital age, which seems to have blown by me. But Naythan (Dr. Laptop) promptly and in detail offered some stop-gap and cogent, practical advice as well as suggesting long-term solutions. I recommend him without reservation.
