About TWC Contributor : Lee Whittington

Lee Whittington, USA, started with his first computer in 1999, a Hewlett Packard bought at Wal-Mart for $1,500.

“Until purchasing one, I thought that computers had to be the most evil things on the planet. Upon purchasing my first pc that same year I attended Southeast College of Technology for Computer Programming. My main focus of studies were Visual Basic, C++ and Networking. After a year and a half I left college to pursue a career at Dell where I did In-House Software Debugging and Tech Support. In 2005 I left Dell to move closer to Birmingham after finding out one of my daughters needed a Kidney Transplant.

Since then I am now a professional Painter using my learned talents to write my own software as a hobby. I also enjoy playing with Photoshop and I am a serious Tech news buff. I spend my free time between gathering every bit of knowledge of Windows 7 I can and keeping up with all the latest gadgets and software.

I’m a huge fan of Nascar, DIY (Do-It-Yourself) websites, Multi-Touch computers, and I am currently Blue-Printing my own design for a Multi-Touch Coffee table that will control most of the electronics around my home. I am also seriously addicted to the Need for Speed series of Xbox 360 games (That’s right, I’m the Drift Master, Smirk).

First full-scale application I wrote was a complete mimic of the once popular Jasc Paint Shop Pro application for a final project in College. In a review by one professor, I was told that someday I would work for Microsoft and if I didn’t that they would be missing a key developer. Alas, the dream never happened, so now I am content with learning and creating what I can to help everyone I can.”

Lee is a 47 year old father of 5 children.

“My children are every bit of my inspiration in life. Without their daily questions, I would have never been inspired to help others. I am also engaged to wonderful woman, who herself inspires me to be the person I am each day instead of being who everyone wants me to be.”

Lee is a member of the TWC Team and also participates at TWC Forums.

    Hi Lee,
    I was checking out the tweaker plus v2.0 app. It is pretty awesome!
    However, I noticed I’m unable to do https sites. Ironically, the check exists in v1.0 but still allows me to use it, whereas in v2.0 the check prevents me from even using https://.
    Any chance this could be corrected? 🙂

    Hi. Would love to see an updated version of the Metro UI Tweaker for Windows 8. The executables currently don’t run correctly on the Release Preview. I think the apps should be installed on every windows 8 and placed on the start screen in an effort to replicate the missing options of the start menu, and it just seems more logical to me to use them instead of the charms bar.. i don’t think of that when i want to shutdown or logoff

    I will be updating all apps as quickly as possible. Just now able to get ahold of the latest Windows 8 Preview and working as fast as possible. 🙂

    wish somebody would add to the wifi profile manager that it doesn’t work in RTM

  7. It does run in my RTM – strange it does not run in yours …

    Lee,

    Is there any chance your WiFi Profile Manager will be recompiled for Windows RT and hosted on the Windows Store? It seems like a great app.

  9. R Peters

    Could you please add a command line option to Quick Restore Maker to exit the program when the restore point is created

    Hi Lee any chance you would give a developer permission to create a portableapp using your “WiFi Profile Manager 8”. They would need your permission, access to the source code and need to know the language you have written it in… have a look at portableapps dot com to see if is something you would consider thanks

    Is there a way to get in touch with you so I make the WLB Blocked senders list program work? mw@homestudyonline.com

  12. Michael

    any chance you could help WLM Blocked senders list application so it could be made to work in Windows 7- 64 bit with WLM. It throws nonstop error

    Lee, I need some help. I installed MailMyFile v1.0 Beta. I could not get it to work. I looked for the uninstall but there isn’t one that I could see. How do I completely uninstall this app?

    Re: WiFi Profile Manager Win8
    Any chance you can update and fix the issues with this utility?
    There seems to be a problem deleting profiles – it creates duplicates.
    With the changes in Win 8.1 this utility is even more essential.

    Lee: Any chance you or The Windows Club members used RT7Lite to customize Windows Install DVD? I am looking for an alternative, since I can’t get the update: http://www.rt7lite.com/updates/update.html
    Thanks for a reply from here…- DonaldB

    I can’t get your Icon Cache Rebuilder to work on Windows 8.1. I had to do the process by hand. “Rebuild” button is grayed out.

    I always knew you would be a great programmer. Course it does take up your time. It’s hard for us “old friends” to keep in touch with you! Keep up the good work, my friend!
