I do not often write reviews however I felt I should with Computer Geek.
I have a fair knowledge of servers and php code that I have built up since 2003. I had spent some days trying to get a new bit of stock control software to work. Having narrowed down what was causing the problem and with a few alterations managed to bring the entire site down. I am laughing about it now but 20 minutes ago I was almost sick.
Having spent an hour trying to fix it or undo the damage with no success, I contacted Richard and within 2 minutes the site was up and running and within 10 minutes the bit of software I had been trying to get to work now works.
Thank you again Richard

Rich and Justin really know their stuff. Whenever an unexpected issue comes up, which happens a lot in our business, they fix the issue immediately while providing exceptional customer service. I truly enjoy working with them and I recommend them to everybody that needs help with their website! Way to go guys!
"I have been relying on the Computer Geek and the Website Guardian for well over a year. I then realized I never even took the time to write a testimonial knowing that they are so important to my own business. Rich and the Website Guardian are top notch. Awesome and as one other customer put it - you and Website Guardian are part of my team. Without security your customers are at risk. Enough said - this is too important to ignore. All I can say is that this is the one call you will be happy you made."

My entire business revolves around my website - and without it I could not exist. Rich built the first page 9 years ago and has been instrumental in my business success. He thinks about my business goals, explains options in terms I can understand and has helped me solve numerous situations with creative cost effective technology. Most important he is reliable, available and I trust him completely with my most important business asset. I always feel that I am a priority. I highly recommend Rich and his team.

"On more than one occasion the folks at the Computer Geek have helped me with web set-up, configuration of e-commerce, and the myriad technical issues that sometimes pop up when conducting business in cyberspace. Rich and the crew have always been cheerful, helpful and most of all efficient in their work...fast and reliable!! I will return to the Computer Geek for all of my web needs in the future. Five stars and two thumbs up!"

"I am that most difficult and dangerous of clients
"I am that most difficult and dangerous of clients, one with just enough working knowledge of what goes on on the IT side of things to want to try my hand. And mess things up. I'm quite good at this. And what someone like me needs even more than someone to say "NO!" (which I wouldn't heed anyway) is someone with the knowledge, patience and sense of humor to bail me out. Multiple times.
Rich Agnew has been that person for me, and in several ventures. Our non-profit organization relies on him for our most technical builds, and to keep us running straight on the smaller things as well. And my publishing website is still operational, and unhacked, through his ministrations. Add to this that he's responsive and fair, and you can see why I happily recommend him to my friends with similar needs.
Did I mention a sense of humor?"

Rich and Alejandro, thank you so much. I am going through both sites and they look great! Thank you very much for your hard work and support during this very stressful time for me. I really appreciate your help. Especially on the long weekend.
I would like you to know I am very grateful for your help and I apologize for having to rush you. This has been a hard year for me and despite working crazy hours I am far behind. Once again, you and Rich have pulled me through and I sincerely appreciate your hard work and great results!
It is truly a pleasure to work with you and Rich and I hope to continue working with you for years to come. Your level of service and attention to detail is second to none!
Please feel free to use me as a reference as one very satisfied client.

"Thanks for the quick work of getting our sites back up and running. I really appriciate your team being so professional and experienced at osCommerce. Your security software is doing an amazing job and is so easy to use ! Thanks for the quick work on setting up security on both of our sites...the emails keep coming in showing countries and IP's being blockded that I have never heard of before We are getting hits from every corner of the globe. By locking down every folder on our site you have given us peace of mind to know that we are a little more secure. I appricate the tools to block Countries and locations that are notorious for hackers and ecommerce bandits. It has been a pleasure working with you and I highly reccomend you and your team to others who need assistance staying alive."
