...for all your computer requirements
"we do EVERYTHING computer"
in computers about
30 years ago, back in 1979,
when the Commodore Business Machines
one of the first PCs and the
king, with Apple II as
it's main rival,
with CBM 3016
(Commodore PET (Personal Electronic
Translator)) then progressing onto
4000 and 8000 series and also the
C64 and 128, our teeth were cut on the
various programming languages - Basic, Fortran, Cobol, C and so on. We had little memory - from 8 to 32 Kilobytes and Cassette Drive storage. Later came the 'Floppy" Drives, then the Hard Disk Drives.
In 1982 we started using the new IBM
XT and then AT machines, which,
excitingly, had open architecture,
and you could build them yourself
and add or change components.
With it came MS-DOS (Microsoft -
Disc Operating System), starting
from, needless to say, 1.00 and went
up to 6.22 (1994).
Along the way (in 1985-6) came
Windows Version 1.0, which was very
unimpressive, but Version 2 and
subsequently Version 3 proved very
successful and got Windows rolling
onto what it is today. Both the
later had viable environments for
development of major applications,
Processors ad Spread Sheets and the outstanding feature was multi-tasking - able to run more than one program at a time, which, until then, was all we could do.
mainly on writing programs in DOS for
various business applications, little
else was done. But as more and more
people were buying computers, we then
started first upgrading, modifying,
altering, repairing them and so on.
until Windows NT 3.1, 3.5 and 4.0 hit
the market, in 1994, and the release of
Windows 95 the next year, that
was a surge
wanting to be trained in
using this new and exciting software and
the applications that could be used in
it. The ease (compared to DOS) that
things could be done, even for someone
that new nothing about computers, made
it easier to learn the basic operations
of these systems.
learned more about these new systems, we
found ways of doing things quicker and
easier thus saving time in using these
systems and the applications that could
be used in them.
So, apart from training people in the
Windows operating system and the
applications and programs that could be
used there-in, we taught them how to
save time by doing things in a more
efficient and quicker manner by use of
shortcuts, personalising and setting
out their computer to quickly use the
applications that they mostly and
commonly used as well as many other very
This, to business, meant tasks completed
quicker, more work done, subsequently
money saved by the employer (a better
bottom line). To the small business
owner(s) (sole trader - partnerships)
and to the individuals, this enabled
then to use less time on the computer,
thus giving them more free time to do
what they really wanted ................
playing golf, sailing, spending more
time with your loved ones, making more
purpose of teaching people, we
did courses ourselves to help us teach
and train people better, and currently
hold the Certificate IV in Assessment
and Workplace Training.
All this to help us be able to teach and
train people to the best of our ability
so they can achieve whatever computer
goals they want and subsequently improve
themselves and their businesses.
We trained people,
both businesses and private individuals, in
classroom facilities as well as in work
environments, like their offices, factories and
so forth, to become mini Windows experts thus
taking out the mystique of computers and some
peoples fear of them.
(NT) systems came the ability to link
computers in the workplace and LAN
(Local Area Network) networking became
part of our repertoire, with WAN (Wide
Area Networking......computers at
different sites (locations)) after that.
Now with the Internet, we also do VPN
(Virtual Private Networks).
We have long
since broadened our horizons with the
advent and popularity of the World Wide
Web (Internet), and also train people in
all aspects of using the Web. As well as
registering a Web name and having a
presence on the Web, building Web pages,
ISP (Internet Service Provider) setup,
E-mail setup, Site hosting and so on.
and modifying the earlier computers and
subsequently building, modifying and
upgrading our many machines over the
years (from the 8086 CPU to the Pentium
of today) it has become second nature to
build machines to people specifications
and requirements and upgrading them when
they have been out grown, like
installing a larger or second Hard
Drive, a DVD writer or installing extra
cards. A faster video card or SCSI
card, for example.
you will ever need, to do with
computers, we can provide. From building
a machine with whatever specifications,
wants and needs you or your business
requires. Installing the machine(s) and
software, additional hardware (printers
etc.), software needs, training,
networking, internet requirements and
much more. We are your 'one call shop'
deliver and do it reliably
Our goal is your security and wisdom.
This being achieved by teaching you how
to use your computer, if not like an
expert, close there to.
This will subsequently allow you to save
money and time. With money saved you
have a bigger nest egg, thus security,
and more free time to make more money if
you wish, and a bigger nest egg.
Then giving you more knowledge of the
use of computers, thus giving you
