How To Disable Those Annoying Facebook Voting Reminders

About


Welcome to Tech Marks The Spot. My name is Harvey Suddarth. Originally from Indiana I moved to Washington state several years ago after meeting the person that would eventually become my wife. I love technology, geocaching, writing, movies, and trying new hardware and software. I am experienced with Windows and a few Linux distributions, though I would call myself a Windows user. You will notice that when is comes to operating systems that I write almost exclusively about Windows and Android. The reason why is because Windows and Android are what I am most experienced with.
