Scot's Newsletter Forums Celebrate 8 Years!

Many people know Scot Finnie as Editor-in-Chief of Computerworld or remember his articles in a variety of popular journals. Others, like myself, started with Scot's writings in the WinMag.com days and the subsequent Scot's Newsletter.   On March 8, 2001, Scot launched Scot's Newsletter Forums (SNF).

Scot's Newsletter Forums provides help and information on a variety of topics, including
  • The "All Things Windows" (ATW) forum,  which includes topics related to Windows, Microsoft, help with Windows, techniques, performance, betas, Windows news, Windows server OSes, the future of operating systems, and more.  
  •  The "All Things Mac" (ATM) forum is devoted to topics and discussions related to Apple, Macintosh hardware and accessories, OS X, Classic, iTunes / iTMS (Mac & PC), and mainstream Mac software.  
  •  Other forms are dedicated to Browsers and E-Mail, Hardware, Security Networking, Application Software and Web Dev and Programming.
Most notable, however, is the well known "Bruno's All Things Linux" (BATL) forum which includes the archived "Tips for Linux Explorers", created by Bruno Knaapen " to provide just enough information to whet your appetite for more.

Special appreciation is extended to ESET and WinPatrol PLUS for providing software licenses as prizes for Highlanders to help celebrate SNF's 8th Anniversary. 

You may have noticed the mention of "Highlanders".  Not long after the forums were underway, by popular vote, the members selected "Highlanders" as our nickname, rather than the broad term, "Scot's Newsletter Forum Members".  The nickname stuck and we still refer to ourselves as Highlanders.

If I have wet your appetite and you decide to register at SNF, please be patient if there is a delay in your account being approved.  All new registrations are individually vetted to keep spammers at bay.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
