I wrote my first program in 1969, Got my own computer in 1984 to design a database for my chimney sweeping customers. In 1999 I was looking for for work as a programmer and realized there were much better programmers also looking for work. I had been helping friends for years and started PC Housecalls doing home visits only. In 2009 i opened Your Computer Store with 2 other men with retail experience to become a full service shop building custom desktop, repairing laptop and desktop PCs and offering support in s the shop, relotely and on site.
