More geeks in downtown Northfield

Northfield is lucky to have two downtown businesses that do a variety of computer-related stuff.

In the past couple of weeks, the friendly guys at Hot Geeks LLC (“Repairs, upgrades, security networks + more”) have added memory to Robbie’s Dell laptop and my HP laptop. (They’re in the same building as Nita’s Salon, between Division and Water St.  on 7th, right behind Lansing’s Hardware.)

  1. I can definitely recommend these Hot Geeks, neighbors of mine on 7th Street near Village on the Cannon. They have twice rescued my computer from meltdown (in the first case, the tower actually sizzled, in the second, it was a virus) and in both cases carried the tower to their store and then back to me to set everything up again and explain what had happened. They are incredibly reassuring for someone who came late to computers and still is not quite sure what she is doing…
    Maybe they should sell cool Hot Geeks vests to Griff and other Geek wannabes?

  2. Hey guys,

    Thanks for your compliments! We feel very fortunate to serve such a great group of folks here in Northfield.

    Now about those vests…
    I think we could work something out 🙂

    You’re welcome, Aarin. As for the vest, it’s probably best to keep them only for you and your colleagues. I’m a ‘hot geek’ only to my wife on those few occasions when I’m prompt at fixing something with her computer. 😉

  4. […] Last March I blogged about the Hot Geeks LLC guys, Adam Rauch and Aarin Morse. I’ve continued to use them for a variety of tasks related to our 4 PC’s as well as for some of my clients’ computers. The latest troublesome problem: spyware infections. I’d been using AVG for both sypware and virus protection until recent problems with their apps sent me looking elsewhere. I switched to using Avira for virus protection and Adam recommended both Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware for nasty spyware/malware infection removal, repair and prevention. So far so good. (No, they’re not clients of mine.) […]
