Anyone want to write about software?

by AmyEditor / April 6, 2011 1:06 PM PDT

Hey guys, I'm an editor for Software.com and we've just launched an articles section for the site. I'm trying to find people interested in writing articles, it's a good opportunity to develop skills, get feedback and earn a little extra.

I'm hoping this is the right place to post this kind of thing, and if anyone is interested please let me know and we can take it from there Happy

FYI, I thought I would include a link to the actual sign up so you can see more about it: www.software.com/auth/writers

Feel free to post question etc in this thread Happy

That link won't work - it's www.software.com/auth/writer - I accidentally added an "s" on the end.

Dr Pruner, if only I had an app for link-checking Wink

about using them to draw folks to another discussion site. TPTB frown upon that. You might want to read those and rewrite your introduction and clarify your purpose. Otherwise, feel free to join in any of these discussions here and add your thoughts or opinions. And again....welcome to SE....the friendly snake pit. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
