About

In every group of friends there is usually one person who is good at the tech stuff.  They are the one that you call when your computer stops working or you need help picking out that new gadget or gizmo.

I am that guy, I am Chris, your tech friend.

So what is TechSnail?

I started TechSnail after an elderly neighbour asked if I would take a look at his laptop. He said he had paid a computer expert £50 to fix it but it was still not working.

I was furious.

We sat down together and I showed him how to get it working again. He offered to pay me but I refused, telling him that he could always ask for my help.

That’s great Chris but what is TechSnail?

Well, as the weeks passed he asked me how to do more and more things. He said that I was very patient and I explained things clearly but he was having trouble remembering what I had said.

I decided to start a website that would explain how to do simple tasks and make it available on the internet as a reference for him.
