Contacting Me

A lot of people who come to this site are readers of my columns and/or books, or have attended a session of mine at a conference.  I appreciate your interest!

I get a lot of computer and programming related questions.   If this is your first visit to this site, be sure to check my Frequently Asked Questions.

In general, feel free to contact me, especially about the following items:

  • Questions about prior columns
  • A presentation of mine that you attended
  • This web site

As for questions, you're welcome to ask, but I can't guarantee an answer.  Windows has just grown too complex!

There very well may be another MSDN columnist who is better suited to answer a question. Be sure to check my "Other Writers" page.
