Comments and suggestions are welcome, or if you find something missing from here that you'd like me to cover please email me and tell me about it. (No more tech support requests please. Besides not having time to answer these lately, I'd much rather see these go to public forums where a lot more people can help with the answers and other people can benefit from the discussion too.)

You'll often find me in the Whirlpool Forums where lots of other people gather to share information and tips, or if you need a quick answer to a problem, take note of the error message and type it into google.com. It is amazing how many times this will find the necessary answer.
