Robert started life as a comparatively fast sperm. At age 13, no longer a sperm, he got his first computer and broke it. He has spent much of his adult life devoted to helping others not to break computers; first as an IT Pro and now as a senior software developer.

His work in helping others has earned him numerous Microsoft ALM MVP awards in the past and many opportunities to speak at major software developer events.

He is most proud of his son, who Robert has tricked into playing Xbox under Robert's own profile, so he can increase his Gamer Score while he is helping others or building apps. His website is www.sadev.co.za and can also be found on Twitter.

comment How to upgrade Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 offline?
Issue with this to be aware of that MSDN/technet is not meant for production. MSDN is for development & TechNet is for testing. So if you have a retail key, it isn't the supported methods for this.

Avoid Crystal now - it was great but the latest version (5.6.2) contains a lot of malware :(
