We are safe and publishing again

If you are reading this, it means a few things:

  • We are safe.
  • Our hosting provider is safe.
  • Your ISP’s systems are working and safe.
  • You are safe.
  • We kept our promise.

The death toll from Florence stands at 5 people so far, and the storm completely missed Maryland.  Other storms in the past few weeks had hit us though, and one life was lost in Ellicott City in the flood on May, 28th, 2018.  Still, 5 people is 5 too many, and our hearts are with the family of the departed and those who lost their homes and property.

We recommend that you be careful when donating online, and choose reputable fundraisers like Facebook Donate, The Red Cross, or a local church.

The next post will be a tech one, we promise.

Stay safe during the hurricane

Due to hurricane florence and the need to prepare on our end and the end of our clients, readers, and providers across the East Coast; there will be no articles until we are certain the storm has ended.

We don’t want the last bit of your battery or data to be used on us, so please save it for an emergency and please charge your devices now before landfall.

Make sure you store all electronics high up and in ziploc bags. Be ready to go at a moments notice and have every bit of data backed up to the cloud.

After the storm passes, be wary of any online donations and stick to reputable charities like churches or the Red Cross.

We will not be providing disaster relief as the last time we did the site went down. Discounts on support or other products are limited to current offerings for now.

Stay safe.

New Facebook Chat System in place

@915d71cIf you need any technical work done or have any questions, direct them to http://m.me/bendycomputers and our 24/7 chat service will alert me or a trusted agent.  You can do everything from set appointments to get follow up messages about your service or products, and it’s all automated and integrated into Facebook Messenger.

This is just to ensure that all communications are central and secure, as well as to allow faster payment processing and support remotely via telephone or screen-share.

Please note that online ordering and payment is still done here, but all other communications will be done via our business Facebook page.  After you get in contact via Facebook, we can use a conventional phone call, email, or any other means of communications you prefer.

Please also note that prepayment before any goods or services are rendered is still required, and we now only use paypal or cards.  Cash on Delivery has been discontinued.

Home Internet outage

Due to a local Internet outage, articles will not be written until the ISP restores connectivity.

Tethering isn’t exactly a good solution and I need it for other purposes.

We appreciate your understanding.

  4. We accept PayPal and Cash on Delivery for some items.
  5. We have 6 Years of Accredited Higher education together as an organization!
