About

My experiences with Micah have been excellent! He has been to my home to work on my computer and printer on 5 occasions. He has installed my complete new computer setup, and my new printer all-in-one, all in a professional, timely, and explanatory fashion! He had been here previously twice on a service call with my former equipment and was the same.... timely, professional, explained the work. He has returned twice recently, at my request, to explain and take me through more than one frustrating problem I was having with my new program. I can vouch that he was totally satisfactory, again exhibiting his knowledge, experience, patience and professionalism. I would not hesitate to give him an excellent referral report.

When Charlie was living in Lexington, he was an invaluable tech person to help me with ANY computer problems. He really knows his job and is adept at solving any problems. He can be counted on to give you excellent service. I heartily recommend him. In addition to his computer expertise, he was always on time, personable, and a pleasure to work with. I regretted his departure from Lexington.

About

Do you need some friendly, patient, one-on-one lessons, teaching, training, and tutoring in the use of personal computers (Mac & PC), mobile devices and apps (Apple iPhone & iPad, Android smartphones & tablets), or other computer-related programs, features, and services? Or perhaps you'd like your website and business to appear much higher in Google organic search results, dramatically improving your Internet presence and reputation, and attracting significantly more customers and revenue. Please don't fall for the sales pitches of unscrupulous SEO companies ... they make false promises and implications, lock you into overpriced ongoing contracts, and deliver very poor results. Perhaps most importantly, they employ techniques that are not "Google-friendly" ... Google does not approve of their practices, and actually penalizes your website and your business by ranking you much lower in Google organic search results. I utilize only Google-friendly SEO techniques ... my results speak for themselves, and I'm glad to show you the unbiased results. Some of the areas in which I can help ... - Computer basics/fundamentals (Mac & PC) - Microsoft Office - Organizing your computer's files & folders - Making full use of the Internet (including downloadable programs) - Protecting your computer from viruses, spyware, & other malicious software ... and removing them - Arranging your workplace for optimal health - Google-friendly SEO for your website and your business
