From the Ed­i­tor

Computer Active (UK) - - Welcome - Daniel Booth ed­i­tor@com­put­er­ac­

My last­ing mem­ory of my first day as Com­put­er­ac­tive ed­i­tor was how many emails I re­ceived from read­ers. Some were re­quests for tech­ni­cal help, oth­ers made thought­ful com­ments on the mag­a­zine, but most of them con­tained in­ge­nious tech tips. From the start I learnt that our read­ers are just as keen to share their com­put­ing knowl­edge as they are to boost their own. In­deed, many read­ers have told me that they love be­ing the recog­nised ‘PC ex­pert’ among their fam­ily and friends.

So it wasn’t sur­pris­ing that hun­dreds of you emailed me when I men­tioned re­cently we were plan­ning a spe­cial is­sue of read­ers’ tips. I was im­pressed not only by the breadth of top­ics cov­ered, but also the clar­ity with which you ex­plained the tips (our plain-english ethos must be rub­bing off!).

Those we couldn’t fit on the seven pages of this Cover Fea­ture we’ll save for the nor­mal ‘Read­ers’ Tips’ sec­tion over the next few months. Thanks to ev­ery­one who emailed.
