Welcome to our community!

While I've enjoyed interacting with our audience via social media and the forums over the last several years, as the audience has grown it become difficult to try to reply to all the questions and messages that come in.

So with that in mind I've decided to move all our Q & A discussions and Insider Updates to, which essentially replaces our forums, social media, and patron pages.

And as of January 2021 it will be the one place I'll be visiting each day to answer questions from our readers at, as well as from our audience of The Automation Show, Podcast, Minute, and Tech Tips.

That in mind I invite you to sign-up and become part of our community today!
