Troubleshooting and Repair
I have over 15 years of experience diagnosing and solving computer problems. The initial consultation is free.
Perhaps you don’t need that new computer. The useful life of your current hardware can often be extended by adding memory or storage.
Do you feel that you could get more out of your Apple equipment? Have you been thinking about digitizing your workflow and going paperless? Do you want to learn how to use the internet securely and retain your privacy? I can help with expert instruction and advice.
What would you do if you lost your data? Passwords, documents, photos? Nothing lasts forever – 100% of all hard drives fail. That goes for solid state drives (SSD), as well. This can be a disaster or a minor inconvenience depending on whether you have an effective backup regimen. That means one that is automatically done without you having to think about it, with multiple copies, some off-site. If the fire or earthquake that destroys your computers also destroys all your backups, they do you no good. Off-site backups can be done inexpensively and without turning your life over to those who would mine your data for profit.
I can transfer your data from one computer to another. Old or new.
Web Site Building
Take control of your own presence on the web. Easy to update, easy to maintain web sites built with WordPress and hosted on servers that you control.
Wired and wireless. I can help you set up a network that is right for your building and uses. Add a server for filesharing and backups. Always done with an eye toward protecting your privacy and security.
Apple gear works very easily with Apple gear. Getting technologies from a variety of sources to work together takes more doing. I can help integrate Macs and iOS devices with Windows, Android, and Linux systems.
Network connected home technologies can bring convenience and security. But if done without considering all the implications can open your private life to data brokers. I can help you chose technologies and network layouts that will automate your home while preserving your privacy.
