  • Sometimes People Say The Nicest Things

    Posted on April 8th, 2009 iamhandyandy No comments

    In my line of work I usually catch folks on their worst days. A computer just crashed, they just lost that file or clicked on the wrong thing and became infected. I can usually fix the problem and be on my way, and I rarely hear back from them, other than an envelope with the check of course :>)

    Well, over the last week or so I had a client have a major catastophe; not a lost file or two, but an entire flooded office. I was able to put him back in a reasonable state to work, while the building contractors fixed his office. Last night everything was reloacted back where it belongs.

    Today I received this very nice letter and I thought I would share it with you. It reminded me of why I am in this business and that there really are some good people left in the world. These are the people I like to help get the most from their technology on the good days, but most importantly to help them out on the really bad days. Dr. Newton of Peter Rock Consulting is one of those good people, I am glad I was able to help him through this trying experience.

    Here is a link to the actual letter

    Sometimes it takes a while for our contributions to be recognised, such is the case with my dear friend and second oldest client Carl Clement. Carl who was one of the forefathers of the computers we can’t live without today, is virtually unknown to the current generation of computer users, maybe even the last generation as well. Unknown that is until two days ago, when David Cassidy decided to set the record straight! Read his nice write-up in the Mercury News CLICK FOR ARTICLE

    Make sure to click the numbers under the photo to jump through the rest of them, use your mouse in Carl’s Honor!
