COVID NOTICE: You can bring your computer to me, all computers-tablets-phones worked on will be wiped down before and after servicing. If you do need on site service, I’m vaxxed and can wear a mask it’s no more inconvenient to me than asking me to take off my shoes, it is your place after all.

LEARN: If you want to learn how to use your computer, or how do something with it, or on the Internet I can explain in language you understand and in a way you can remember. I can sit with you and show you, or even show you step by step remotely. I can advise you on things that could help you without a sales pitch. I’m someone who’s been mucking with computers as long as Bill Gates and show you first, so you can decide if that costly software will help you at all.  Call me, I’m willing to tutor just you or even a group.

Breathe new life into your older system with an SSD!

Chances are, you’re not even using all of that big hard drive. Upgrade to a new ultrafast SSD and keep your old hard drive as a backup. Add a little RAM and clean up that startup and malware. Call me, it will feel like new once done. For far less than a new computer.

Internet problems?

I was the guy who brought the Internet to Fort St. James way back when. Fort St. James was one of the first rural areas to get Internet access. From dial-up to ADSL and wireless-to-home access, I am able to pinpoint your problems (is it you, or them?) or even advise you on the best system to use at your location. With years of experience working with Telus, ABC and running Max, I have many contacts who can help resolve problems that trace to your ISP. If it’s your router or computer, I’m the first person for you to call.
