As many of you have noticed, I have not been posting any articles to this website. Some of you have wondered if everything is OK with. Well, let me reassure you all that I am OK. First of all, recent commitments have been very overwhelming for me. This meant that I could not post articles to this website. Normally, I would let you all know about such a hiatus, but things have been very hectic for me, so I sincerely apologise for that. However, I am glad to report that I am back and as of tomorrow, I will be resuming normal service.
It’s go time once again readers! I currently host a podcast called MHF Tech. If you have not done so then I highly recommend checking it out.
Anyway, thanks to our friends at Parallels, I am currently running a giveaway where you could win a copy of Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac. I would appreciate it if you could pass this along to as many people as you can.
If you have been listening to the MHF Tech podcast then you might already know that my show is a proud member of the Tech Podcast Network. Thanks to the folks over at the Tech Podcast Network, I am pleased to announce that I am able to carry the Tech Podcast Network’s live CES 2013 coverage on the MHF Tech website. The live video stream and chatroom are up right now. I will then take it down on 11th January 2013.
I am really pleased to announce that this site now has a responsive design. If you’re on a mobile device, simply turn the mobile theme off using the toggle at the bottom of the page and it will bring you to the desktop version of this site. When you browse from a phone or a tablet in this manner, the website will automatically re-shape itself depending on what kind of device you have. This means that it will still look beautiful no matter what device you have! I’ve tested this on an iPhone 4 and a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I can confirm that it does work.

There are times when some of us need to take a tiny break for some time. Even us techies need some time to just take a break to focus on other things. This is why I have an announcement to make.
You may have noticed a couple of glitches, this is because I am trying to get the entire website transferred over from one web hosting provider to the other. As you know this can take time. During this move, I will not be posting articles to this site. I want to make sure that everything gets transferred over so that nothing gets overlooked. Until my next article, have a great day whatever you do.
When setting up a new website, one of the things you need to do is sign up for what is known as web hosting. This is effectively the server which stores the files for your website. There are a lot of these web hosting providers out there. This is where I have an announcement to make. I am going to be switching this site to a new web hosting provider.
What will this mean for you, the reader? Well, all of the articles that I have published might become unavailable for a short time. After transferring all of the articles, pictures and pages over to the new website, normal service will resume. If all goes well, you will have nothing to worry about.
note: A web hosting provider is a company that provides you with online storage for your website. All of the pictures, web pages, links etc would be served up from this storage.
Last week, I had the opportunity to guest on a show called Saturday Morning Tech. Every Saturday morning, Todd Cochrane(host of Saturday Morning Tech) and two other guests sit down to talk about the week’s technology stories. In his studio, Todd has two machines running skype running into two monitors which show the guests. I am the one on the top screen. I was guesting alongside Rob Greenlee(RobGreenlee.com) for episode number 50 of the Saturday Morning Tech Show. You can watch the video below or you can download it over on the Geek News Central website. I want to say a huge thank you to Todd Cochrane for letting me come on the show and making me feel welcome.
side note: I apologise for being unprofessional. In the last ten minutes of the show, I had someone who had left their Skype account on my other computer logged on and it started ringing.
