This is getting hard. Had 4 off the top of my head. Had to eliminate the previous winners just to come up with only one.

I'll start things off with harryb2448

Always helpful and pretty darn good with those older Mac systems that some of us newer "switchers/multi-platform users" don't have the knowledge with
