Welcome Back to You and Me

Hi all of you,

I’ve been away for a couple of years battling illness. I’m feeling better now and saw an old video on YouTube by Carey Holzman.

For those of you that don’t know Carey, he posts videos on PC Repair as well as his hobbies. I’ve seen Carey’s passion for his craft in the way that he revolutionized the PC repair video. He is constantly adding new features to his videos. That is where I see his commitment to the people. He could have thrown up a few videos to attract clientel but instead Carey constantly changes, wanting to perfect his videos like he has with his business.

The reason why I speak of Carey is, that watching hisĀ  recent video gave me the hunger again. The hunger to help people in a small way. The smiles I used to see on customer’s faces when I returned their computers to them with viruses removed, with the system fixed or performance enhanced. I miss that the most.

So I’m returning, not so much as a business but as a hobbyist. If you need help with your computer, give me a call of drop me an email. If you live in the Chapel Hill area, I’d be more than happy to take a look at it for you.

Hope to see you soon.

OK Guys and Gals, Do Those Updates

I realize most of you are busy with life’s matters and seemingly lesser important things are put aside until or if we find the time.

Same is true when it comes to our computers. We’re doing a quick Google search, updating our Facebook page or website, then a pop-up tells us there is an update. Grrr, I don’t have time for that! MAYBE later.

But the honest truth is, with today’s fast internet connections, an update is usually quick and painless, and besides that, it helps keep our computers and software programs running smoothly and up to date.

And maybe the most important thing to remember when that update pop-up appears, the majority of updates, whether it be Adobe Flash or Adobe Reader, your anti-virus software, Internet Explorer, Java (if you have that installed), or even Windows itself, are security updates. Updates that patch security holes in the before mentioned software that have been discovered to be vulnerable to virus, spyware, malware and hacking attacks.

So let’s keep the bad guys out and our computers running more efficiently and do those updates!

If you feel it a bit daunting, give me a call and I can help you to make sure your computer is up to date.
