How Me Being Homeless All Those Years Ago Helps You with Your Technology


We hope you had a safe, relaxing and reflective Memorial Day. 

We here at Fedora enjoyed our three day weekend but are ready to jump back in and tackle your questions and concerns.

Here are just a few we’ve had come in via our various social media platforms:

• I’m virtually homeless and between jobs and I need your best advice and help

• Audio routing frustrates me and I just don’t understand it

• Navigating Pages on the Mac is problematic for me… please HELP!
