We’ve talked for a while about figuring out how we can sell some of our products via the website. Well, I think I figured it out this weekend. So starting today I’ll be making some changes to the website to enable us to sell several various electronics products and deliver them straight to your door.…

So last Thursday marked the opening day for the Texas Rangers. I had recently moved our game console testing TV into the office so that Andrew and I could collaborate on our current projects, and I realized that I could actually watch the Rangers this year! In years past I have always signed up for…

Honestly, I can’t think of a new tip for this week. We have been so overwhelmed with customers this last week or so that I’m plumb worn out. So I decided that I would take today’s post and just say thank you! We have seen a clear change in our business traffic and we know it’s…

Each week we have quite a few computers that come through the shop that we have to reload Windows to ensure that the issue is resolved. We’ve talked in the past about backing up your data and most people have at least some way they’re trying to back it up. Sometimes the backup is a little weak,…

Many people today know that you can just run to Walmart and pick up a new wireless router if, and when, their’s dies. It happens to everyone the router goes out and, as we all know, we can’t live without our internet so we just run to the store and grab a new one. It…

Worms and viruses and malware… OH MY! We have a lot people ask us about antivirus programs on their computers. A few years ago Microsoft introduced Windows Defender, a built in antivirus for Windows. We’ve seen this antivirus program take care of the most common issues for users. Therefore we don’t suggest a paid antivirus program for…

We have a saying around the office, “if your data isn’t backed up in at least two separate places, it’s not backed up”. While this may sound like a slight over exaggeration, when you think about the implications it’s almost not enough. We have had several customers bring their computers in with failing, or completely…

Battery Backup

This time of the year, at least for us in south Arkansas, the weather can get a bit….iffy. We suffer through some pretty major thunderstorms here. At my house at least we lose power with almost every one of them. Because of this I’ve taken to just turning the computer off and unplugging whenever I…

Tri-State Technologies just recently started a partnership with Bridging the Gaps of AR to begin offering programming and development classes and courses for their students. We have a list of projects that we’re going to be working on, and for some of them we’re going to use the Raspberry Pi computer. So our tech today…
