 If the light on your surge protector is flickering, it may be time to think about a new one.  
It may also indicate a "dirty" power source.

 

Better yet, get an Uninteruptable Power Supply and JUST plug the computer and monitor into it.  Plug the printer and other
 accessories into a different source.

News From The Computer Guy

I was in Des Moines a few days last week and picked up a few new tips from the various events I attended. 

 

On Wednesday night, I attened an event sponsored by Dwolla.  Dwolla is a payment service (similar to PayPal) that can be used directly from your cellphone or computer to pay or get paid.  Instead of a percentage of the purchase price for a transaction fee, all transactions are just $0.25.  I had a chance to speak with the owner, Ben Milne, as I was doing a stringer report for the North Iowa Today.com

 

WHAT IS DWOLLA?? 


The Computer Guy takes Dwolla as a form of payment, along with PayPal, Credit Cards, your GOOD check, as well as old fashioned cash.

 

Have a fantastic week!

Many times, we have people ask us about classes they could take to become more computer savvy.  Well, we decided to ask you what would interest you!

 

Stay tuned to The Monday Morning Memo for class details, but in the meantime, if you want individualized instruction, we do offer in-home tutoring.  Our basic policy is $50 for around an hour and a half of instruction.  This means, write down as many questions as you want and we will come to your home or business and go through them with you.  This is done on YOUR computer so you don't have to worry about remembering what was said or done when you get home from a class.  You can see immediately what is done and we can show you specific examples of how something will work on your own computer. 

 

We do limit the class to an hour and a half.  We have found that anything more than that as both instructor and student have a limit on what is taught or absorbed.

 

Call and book a time if you need this service.  Also, some things can be done quickly via Remote Repair, so if it's an easy/quick fix, just let us know and we can get it done.

 

Stop by or call the shop Monday - Friday from 10am - 6pm or Saturday from 10am - 2pm.  Our number is 641-456-1936.
