Yes, we will fix your computer

I’m a geek, I really am. I don’t blog much about the geekyness I get up to, but I’ve clocked up a decent number of hours taking computers apart, putting computers together, cleaning out viruses, making computers go faster and, of course, playing lots of games. None of this has ever been my job, but it hasn’t stopped me yet.

I use computers every day in one way or another and so do you. I provide all my own tech support, which is great for me, but I know there are lots of computers out there that could do with care and attention. So here we are.

My friends and I are running a computer fixing day for everyone in the community through our church. It will be on Saturday 28th April at Silverstream Retreat, 3 Reynolds Bach Dr, Lower Hutt. We have assembled a team of geeks who will be providing totally free tech support to you on the day. There’s also a rumour that there will be food around and a few non-geeky people too.

The geeks will do the best they can to fix, update and speed up your computer. We even have some spare parts that were generously gifted for the event by the company I work for, Catalyst IT Ltd. So even if your computer doesn’t start you can still bring it and if your computer isn’t fixable but you need to recover the files we can help with that too. We can’t guarantee that we will fix every computer we come across, but we’re going to do our best.

Because computer fixing can take a while we’re asking people to come in the morning from 9-11am and drop their computer off and then come back between 4-5pm to pick it up. If you leave a contact number with us we can let you know if it’s ready before that. This gives us the time we may need to run updates, scan for viruses and diagnose any faults you may be having. Your computer will get a sticker so we know which is yours, it won’t get lost.

We will have plenty of keyboards, mice and monitors, so all you need to bring is the main computer, which will look something like one of the pictures below, or your laptop if that needs fixing.

So bring up your computer from 9am-11am on Saturday 28th April and we’ll see you then :)
