Tech help during quarantine
I hope you are all healthy and safe. The Coronavirus has put us in a bizarre situation where we need to keep ourselves sequestered from much of the human contact we need and are used to. A lot of our connection with the outside world now is through our technology. And it is times like these where we see just how good our tech is. If anything malfunctions, though, I can't pop on over for a visit. Fortunately, I can still help.
Through the magic of remote access, I can still diagnose and even fix your issues. Sometimes, a simple phone call is all that's necessary. Other times, you and I can use something called "remote desktop access" to solve the problem. This is where you give me permission through a safe, secure 1-time code that allows me to not only see, but also control your computer. (Once the session is over, I can't access your computer until you give me a new permission code.) It works very well and actually costs a bit less than an in-person visit.
If remote access sounds like something that interests you, I encourage you to let me know. Just call me, and we can diagnose the best course of action for your needs–whether for tutoring or for fixing a problem. Heck, call or email me even if you're not having technology issues. I'd love to hear how you're doing regardless!

I would like to set up a new computer and transfer all the contents ( or most of the contents) from my old computer to my new computer. I would like you to do it !

Could’t download an upgrade on my Mac Airbook Pro because they say “Not enough room”...Have been trying to make room and in the process sent my entire desktop to TRASH. It was fully loaded and I’ve been struggling to salvage what I think I might need. There are a numbeR of important photo albums that I want to put somewhere else for safekeeping, but where? How? Etc etc

I have a mid-2011 iMac, running El Capitan 10.11.6, with Safari 11.1.2. I have been getting "Server not found" and "Safari can't open the page" imessages " and inability to connect to many normal websites. It's requiring me to force visiting them. Is this a Certificate Trust Settings issue or something else? And is it fixable?

Thanks for reaching out, Guy. It sounds like your Mac may be having issues with its age. For instance, your version of Safari may be out of date. Have you tried updating it lately? Keep in mind that, often, when a computer's operating system is too old, it can't support the latest versions of apps anyway. El Capitan in rather old. Have you tried upgrading your operating system?
