“The Talk of the Mac Community” is introducing a new feature starting with this edition. Pat Fauquet of Dr. Mac Consulting has joined MacVoices as the resident tech guru. Pat will be discussing technical issues in-depth, assisting listeners with their problems and sharing her experiences as a troubleshooter and problem solver for the business she shares with author, Houston Chronicle columnist and MacNotable Bob LeVitus.
In this show, Pat shares some humorous tech support stories and covers an important topic to anyone in storm country: the need for surge suppressors and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Pat tells you what they are, what to look for when buying and dismisses some old wives’ tales in her first appearance.
