Who Is Richard Cravy. . . and Why This Blog

Do you like to find something that works as advertised? …And is FREE or very low cost?

I love to find and use free and inexpensive computer software that does something unique for me. I also love to find sources of other good “stuff,” whether software, computer hardware, internet hosting, books, etc., which I can use myself and/or share with others.

This blog is being developed to share some of my sources, and some of my favorite things in these categories. Over time we hope to include mini-reviews, full reviews, tutorials, and even a few “best of” lists.

I have also enrolled some fellow geeks to (hopefully) contribute from time to time:
– Aaron Cravy – (www.aaroncravy.com) one of my sons, a co-worker at Sunset Extension School (www.extensionschool.com), and fellow computer geek.
– Rob Hindman – (www.robhindman.com) webmaster for Sunset Extension School and Sunset International Bible Institute (www.sibi.cc), a great friend and the guy who answers most of the tough questions I have about creating a website.

The views and opinions expressed on this website are our own, and are not intended to either offend or curry favor with anyone. We’re just 3 computer guys who think we have something useful to contribute.

Who is Richard Cravy? Born in 1948 in the eastern part of Texas, attended Rice University (Electrical Engineering) and Florida College (Bible). Working and serving in church and church-related ministries since 1970. Extensive experience in graphics, printing, computers, and teaching. Married since 1967, with three children and three grandchildren (so far). The picture below, taken in November 2006, shows our clan except for one daughter and son-in-law. I’m the guy in the middle with the gray beard. Aaron Cravy is second from the left.

    I enjoy trying various things on your site. You may have talked about Webaroo web browser. I found it on U3 software that is on my jump drive. Really neat. Check out U3 at: http://www.u3.com and Webaroo at: http://my.webaroo.com/ Really BIG improvement over just hitting Favorite button.
    Yours in Christ,

    Thanks, Clarence, for the suggestion. I have several thumb drives with U3 on them but have never checked out Webaroo. Here is a link to someone’s review of Webaroo 2: http://www.reviewsaurus.com/software-reviews/webaroo-2-useful-but-bandwidth-killer-too/

    Also, a challenge some folks have is uninstalling it if they don’t like it. Go to the Webaroo website under FAQs instructions for uninstalling.

    I originally came to this site because you’re my wife’s uncle. I keep coming back here because I love it. I’m a computer geek too so I always find something interesting. This is one of the best blogs I’ve ever read.

    I’ve clicked over to Aaron’s site too. He needs to post more pictures of Natty and Michah, they’re beautiful. That’s coming from both Ang and me.
