I seem to be insane.
You know how all us tech geeks end up our family's de facto tech support person? And the lengths we'll go to to avoid support-type questions? Well, I've now put myself in a situation where I am my family's official
tech support guy.
My new webhosting provider (www.dreamhost.com) has such a sweet deal that I got a domain just for use by my family. I'm going to set up everyone in the clan with email, and I can give them web pages and blogs too if they want. (My family is so clueless. Everyone is responding to my announcement email by asking "what is a blog?".) I figure we can set up a family picture gallery and scan in all the old photos from my grandma's album. My cousin will love doing that.
Oh well, I figure it won't be too much work. If it is, I'll get my 16yo niece who is a computer whiz to be our tech-support rep.By the way, check out the sweet deals at DreamHost:
If you sign up, use my personal domain as a referral and I get a small credit. If you don't know it, email me and I'll let you know.
