I’ve got Spring Fever! (Computer Training Unleashed – $17!)

February 25, 2011 By: Rich Pryor Category: Uncategorized

Happy Friday all,

Well since I busted my butt getting the videos re-hosted after the server crash, I thought I’d run a crazy sale on them. We’re back to less-than-prelaunch pricing. AND, I put an extra offer on there – for another $10 I’ll let you GIVE THEM away to your friends, family, and co-workers. Crazy, huh? Go check it out now, this won’t last long…

Computer Training Unleashed

That’s it for now…I’ve got a blog post coming tomorrow with some good stuff in it!

Cheers, Rich

Welcome Back!

February 24, 2011 By: Rich Pryor Category: Uncategorized

Just a quick note – I wanted to welcome back all the users who I was able to reconnect with after the server crash. In the past few days I’ve sent several thousand of you an apology note…you were buyers of my products but the autoresponder I had you in had crashed. I had to (manually) put the list together from my fulfillment system, and then re-import it into new autoresponders, and recreate all the messages, rehost the videos….it was a good three day project. UGH.

But it was worth it, because all you fine folks are back on the board! Here’s the latest to catch you up:

I’m working hard on Computer Secrets Unleashed 2011 (Windows 7 Edition). It is going to have at least six different modules: SelfGeek TuneUp, SelfGeek Backup, Malware911, Web Safety Guide, A Printing Module, and a Networking module…which I don’t have clever names for yet. 🙂 I think each one will be available in a “Basic” edition, which will be free, and then a “Professional” edition with lots more details and including videos. And if you get the whole collection, you’ll save a bunch of money and it will collectively be known as CSU 2011.

Give me your thoughts on that below!

Also, Computer Training Unleashed is (finally) rehosted at Amazon AWS, so it isn’t going down again!! And to celebrate, I’m going to run a special on that for those of you who don’t own it…including something I’ve never even heard of anyone doing. This is pretty crazy but…I’m going to let you share it with your friends and family! More details on that, probably tomorrow.

Anyway – Welcome back, and please post a comment below!

Two new FAQs today – hardware troubleshooting & safe mode…

Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts for Moving Windows

January 27, 2011 By: Rich Pryor Category: Uncategorized

I’ve been busy working on SGM 2011, but I wanted to share some cool keyboard shortcuts I discovered for Windows 7! If you’re like me, you have many windows open on your desktop at once! Windows 7 has some great shortcuts to help you manage the windows. Using these shortcuts is much faster than moving the windows with your mouse!

If you want to minimize all the other windows except the one that is currently active, hold down the Windows key and press D. Repeat the keystroke to bring them back. If you want to minimize all the windows including the active window, hold down the Windows key and tap the Home key instead.

To quickly minimize the current window, Windows + up-arrow. To maximize, Windows + down-arrow. To dock the window at the right of the screen, Windows + right-arrow. To dock it at the left of the screen, Windows + left-arrow.

Here is my favorite – if you’re lucky enough to have two monitors, you can move a window to the other monitor by holding Shift + Windows Key + left-arrow or Shift + Windows Key + right-arrow.

The all new SelfGeek Manifesto 2011 is in development. My fingers are bleeding from all the typing I’ve been doing, but things are coming along well. The layout of the new version is slightly different this time around…instead of “Volumes” there will be “Modules” for different areas of interest.
