John is our editor and primary illustrator, while Suzanne, Emily, Declan, Ceren, and Olivia are our principal writers. Some of us are homeowners, others are apartment dwellers. One’s a professional writer, a couple of us are in management, a couple more are in data management, and a couple more are in marketing. Two of us are, and soon to be three, are students. Between us, we’ve got over a hundred years of how-to experience to discuss with you. That’s our simple mission: share everything we’ve learned, and what we’re continuing to learn with you.
The genesis for the Skippity Whistles mission came from the realization that there’s a ton of old-school technology that needs an instruction manual. Stuff your mom and dad might have explained to you, but, hey, that was a long time ago.

He was a chap performing some arcane ritual known only to him and a very few others, and he earned the nickname Skippity Whistles.
