Newsletter FAQ & administration
Happy Anniversary to . . . me!
August 10, 2003 is when the first Ask Leo! article was published.
Those were the days of Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6, MSN Messenger, Outlook Express, and more. Good times.
A lot has changed in the intervening 18(!) years, but one thing certainly hasn't: there's no shortage of questions about computers and technology.
It's "steady as she goes" for the forseeable future. Ask Leo! remains my excuse to keep playing with technology, and help a few folks along the way.
If you want to join the celebration, consider consider becoming a patron (if you're not already -- THANKS if you are!), or maybe just buy me a coffee or a beer. And even if not, of all the ways to support Ask Leo! even just sharing the newsletter with a friend, or passing the word in some other way helps immensely.
With luck and your support let's keep doing this for another 18 years, shall we?
This week's featured article
I got to my hotel room, tried to sign in to LastPass . . . and I couldn't.
What followed was some small frustration, some realization of how many ways I was covered no matter what, and ultimately understanding that it was really my own fault.
No Email from LastPass? Dealing with Sign-In Problems has the story.
Also this week:
- Neighbor using your IP address? If true, it's a bad thing.
- What it means to reformat a disk, and four ways to do it.
- The mystery of the moving mouse.
One more week off. Should be back on track next week.
Thanks, as always, for being here and for your ongoing support,

No Email from LastPass? Dealing with Sign-In Problems
It happened to me. The steps I took, the mistake I made, and what I had at risk.
While travelling, I signed in to my LastPass account only to be told I needed to confirm an email message that never arrived -- or so I thought.
