Need help with any sort of electronic device? I'm just a message away for a vast array of solutions for you. If you have any needs not listed on my page, just ask. I am sure I can help.

Pricing:
+ Diagnosing is free
+ $20/hr is my rate. You will not believe how much I can get done in that amount of time
+ $10 fee if I meet you. I can come to your house or a place like a library
+ $50 is usually what wiping a computer costs. This includes: reloading Windows, restoring your documents and programs, removing unneeded preinstalled software, updating, configuring for you, speeding it up, etc. This process usually takes 4 or more hours.

By "devices" I mean basically anything that uses electricity: computers, smartphones, tablets, programs, TVs, stereos, consoles, WiFi routers, etc.

Just a few of our commonly used services:
+ Recommend hardware to purchase to improve experience
+ Speed up any slow device by cleaning it up or installing hardware
+ Fix any desktop computer issues, period
+ Build or upgrade a computer to perfectly fit your needs and budget
+ Tutor how to do use devices, websites, programs, etc
+ If needed, refer you to my friend who does anything I do not like replace broken screens and hinges
+ Try to recover important files you have lost
+ Any advice about anything
+ Answer any questions about digital privacy you have concerns about
+ Securely wipe or protect files
+ Reset passwords to devices or websites
+ Set up devices to be ready for use, like WiFi routers

I also will do many other things too like wiring a home for speakers, Ethernet, cable, intercom, etc, as long as it is fairly straightforward. I can recommend the perfect technological solution to anything you want. From choosing the right mouse to choosing the right $3,000 computer or TV to buy. I can help you make a very informed, confident decision on your next big investment.

    This site keeps track and manages my BOINC account. Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open source middleware system for volunteer and grid computing. It was originally developed to support the SETI@home project before it became useful as a platform for other distributed applications in areas as diverse as mathematics, medicine, molecular biology, climatology, and astrophysics. The intent of BOINC is to make it possible for researchers to tap into the enormous processing power of personal computers around the world.
