Bio/Description

Once you understand, you don’t have to remember. That’s the motto of former computer system designer Chas Newport. He spent a quarter of a century working with huge helicopters, underground bunkers, nuclear reactors and armed guards before starting his new career as a non-fiction writer. Peppered with trivia and anecdotes his No 1 Best Seller “The Rusty Nut Bible” prompted one Amazon reviewer to say “I particularly liked the tongue in cheek humour that pervades the volume.” To date his books have been published in 10 countries.

Cars, films, good food.

WordPress Origin Story

I discovered WordPress via the automated install system at my ISP and never looked back. Following a hack of one of my early sites, the search began for a set of plugins to automate site maintenance, defence and backups as much as possible. This culminated in a book: “How to Make Your Website Run Itself” (formerly “WordPress Like Clockwork”) and allows me to run over 50 sites with about half an hour of maintenance per week.
