When you need Technicians level Service and Repair.

News _1-28-2015How in the world did you miss all the 64bit hardware upgrades? If you're still running Server 2003 you'll be in for a shock when someone like me tells you that none of your hardware is going to work. Should have upgraded when Intel and SuperMicro still made 64bit servers in the USA.

The end of service and upgrades life for Windows Server 2003 / R2 will be starting July 14, 2015.

You do not have to update at all if you feel you will not benefit, have no internet connection or are just plain so far out of the IT world you think all will be good for you and your Windows Server 2003, Small Business Server 2003 and that XP box you are working on right now.

My Offer: You buy the hardware I suggest, I install your new Server Software, configure everything you need on the Microsoft server side and ship it back to you. Flat fee for all 2008 R2 and 2012 server setups $750.00. 

This is a complete OS setup with Active Directory, full backup (tested and proven) and network ready for your business office or home office. 

For each software bundle that you have I'll either test it prior to production configuration or you can do it yourself. If you have data to transfer I'll setup the scripts to do the task.

From Financial and medical servers to file sharing it's a walk in the park when you plan for every role and feature. 

Contact me with your details and beat the deadline.


When you need Repair Service and Technical Service you're going to find the best in class right here. 

You should know their are no single titles other than Technician that will bring a smile on your face. No Administrator can repair from A to Z your electronics. No "Systems Analyst" can upgrade your hardware and no Remote Desktop Support can correct a power backup or faulty ground. 

Let me help you clear up a few things. If you're able to follow simple instructions you can, with a great technician fix just about any IT equipment you have in your home or office. 

I have an 80% over email and phone success rate and the 20% outstanding often is referred to a local technician so you don't have to wait. I also have had remote desktop repairs and server configurations remotely.

Not to mention the firewall, router and switch work that can be done online. 

If you need Customer Service you can call any 800, 877, 888 number and your local neighborhood franchised computer Customer Service Representative.

What's in the News.

Waiting for Windows 9? Keep waiting if you want to know how IT Pros work the system. 

Let the PC Bundles work out the bugs and buy the software after one year and / or after 1 year and one service pack. 

By the time you're ready for another Windows round you could have Ubuntu up and running and really knowing how to use it. 

It's simple and here's my list: 

  • Windows 3.1 and 3.11 good stuff coming from DOS. 
  • Windows 95 upgrade did the trick to get the GUI.
  • Windows 98 not so much which sparked the Windows 98 SE version.
  • Windows ME or Millennium what a failure that was. 
  • Windows 2000 Pro came from building on top of NT 4.0 called it NT 5.0.
  • Windows XP 
  • Windows Vista (Failed on many levels)
  • Windows Vista merged into a server family that had limits. 
  • Windows 7 all but Pro, Ultimate and Enterprise were junk.
  • Windows 8 should have been called Windows CE2 failed in my book. 
  • Windows 8.1 public cried for a start button, should have mentioned we need a bit more than just a start button.
  • Windows 9?

As you can see it's almost perfect every other release didn't hit home. 

What's in it for XtremeComputer.Com ? Here's the deal, I'm selling this domain with the .Net and .Org.

Let the Good Times Roll!

It's once again time for you to prove you actually know your stuff. 

Sure it's easy to con the interviewer and that manager that couldn't tell the difference between a SSD and a Spindle.

My Comment: Management is stressed more than ever now with the end of support for XP. Keep calm, email for help and stick to your plans.

Your IT staff will pull you out of a bad migration if it ends that way.

I have one piece of advice for management: Let your IT staff run with the plan, they know what is up and they will ask you for help if needed. When they ask for help listen to them and get them the people they need.

I've been training one person to setup drives for the migration but management has delayed the purchasing of swap drives. ... 

Soon, when it's time they will make conference call after conference call asking why the drives requested have not arrived. 

Time to get management out of IT path that doesn't come from an IT grassroots background and allow IT to develop.
