It occurs to me that the number one issue facing most people at the moment (apart from insomnia, cirrhosis of the liver, pending divorce blah blah insert joke here) is IT hassle.
From networking to forgotten passwords and just plain old computer gremlins, IT is the real issue. Get it? Many people are blessed to be good with computers, or to live with or know someone who is good with computers, but if you are barely tech literate then it’s a right nightmare and causes a barnyard full of rows if you’re living in a houseful of analogues.
The worst is if you live with someone who knows how to do tech but they’re all huffy when you say something like: “What’s this flashing vertical line called again?”
My amazing IT guy, Andrew, does this incredible thing where he accesses my computer via an app called AnyDesk. He literally takes control of my laptop from his laptop and deals with the bastard directly, which I find intensely soothing. I watch the cursor whizzing about efficiently, opening tabs and scrolling through drop-down menus and think – ha ha ha, laptop old boy: you’ve met your match. Andrew has all my passwords. He could clean out my bank account today and then vanish into thin air. I trust him with my life.
Andrew is located in north London and his website is here.
