"I highly recommend Rich at the Computer Geek. We had all sorts of bugs left over from our previous web company...he fixed everything on our very long list and within days we were up and running strong...he even took on some custom site-wide fixes that were very complicated. We received affordable, professional and prompt service...would recommend him to anyone!"

I had a band website that relied on an old media player that eventually became obsolete when support for it was dropped. I had designed it myself, and in doing so I had a very specific way I wanted our music page to look and work, and in searching around for a fix I found that other web services were more interested in their own vision - rather than following the one I had in mind. I felt instinctively that my website was in much better hands when I found Rich, and he and his team at Computer Geek were terrific and patient, following my notes outlining the various areas throughout my site that needed attention, especially the music player which now works great! Professional. Prompt. Thorough. Friendly. Fair Pricing. I recommend them highly!

After being let down by a plethora of programmers in the past, I was a bit skeptical about even talking to another programmer. Then I met The Computer Geek! It was truly refreshing talking and eventually working with The Computer Geek. The term "Geek" doesn't describe Rich at all. He's a talented, hard working, guy who's true desire was to see our projects through to completion. The ONLY issue I had with The Computer Geek was that he would finish my projects BEFORE I was ready. As a programmer myself, I spent most of my time getting the next project ready instead of assisting. Like I said earlier, it has been a "refreshing" relationship that I hope will last for many years to come.
It's been great working with someone who actually DOES what they SAY! REFRESHING!
"I was having issues with my web site and did a Google search which led me to Rich. It can be scary trusting someone to go behind the scenes, but I'm glad I chose him to do the job. Rich not only took the time to talk with me on the phone, offering me insights and alternatives, but he handled the problem quickly. I highly recommend him. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns."

Rich saved my life!!!
I was hacked and Rich saved me. It was a terrible experience, as is always the case when you deal with some pointless, yet malevolent malware created by some greasy faced kid living in his grandmothers basement.
My host immediately took my site down, and was trying to charge me $500 to clean it so it can be opened again. Bull$#*!. Rich did it for much cheaper and also stuck around after the fact, helping really polish it off, making sure my site had regenerated into its fresh immunity. All in all, I don't know what I would do without his help. My entire business is my site.
He had it up and running the same day of the hack.
Five star service for sure!!!

Our company was at a crucial point in development when we contacted Rich at Computer-geek.net. One of the reasons we chose him was the number of impressive client comments we saw on his web site. Now, I'm writing one! Rich and his staff have been instrumental in redesigning our web site and in helping us to develop advertising revenue. I have appreciated his honesty and his assistance and I can recommend him without reservation. He has the expertise we need and if he doesn't know something he will find out. We expect to continue this relationship in the future and to work with him as we grow the company.
"I had been putting off migrating my website for months, but when the company that hosted my services went AWOL, I knew I had no time to spare. I reached out to Rich & his team on a long weekend. I wasn’t expecting a response until the following Tuesday: Rich got back to me within a couple of hours. From that point forward, he treated my problem like his problem. Not only did Rich and his team help me work through all the logistics, they displayed tremendous patience and offered superior guidance ensuring a seamless migration. The team at Computer-Geek are professional, ethical, patient and reliable. I highly recommend their services."

When I needed some major changes made to my website, I was hesitant about putting my livelihood in the hands of a total stranger, however, after reading the positive testimonials on your website, I felt comfortable engaging your services. After our first phone conversation, I had total confidence in your capabilities and integrity.
You tackled my punch list with enthusiasm, all the while staying in close communication until the last item was addressed and I was satisfied. Your ability to think ‘outside the box’ in sourcing solutions resulted in savings of both time and money. I appreciate all the recommendations you made to streamline my website’s ease of operation and would not hesitate to recommend you to any web professional. Lastly, I appreciate the way you put customer service above all else - your easy friendly manner gives “geek” a whole new image.
Many thanks for a job well done - my site looks great!
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.

Several years back I was informed by a client that they couldn't access my website. After countless days I was able to get a call back from my hosting and web page design company. The company got it back up but the content of the site was messed up. After weeks of no response, I contacted Computer Geek on a Sunday to leave a message for a return call on Monday. 10 minutes later to my surprise I had a return phone call from Rich at the Geek. By the following day my website was back to normal. As soon as I could I had the Geeks do my hosting and have recently had them build me a new website. Rich and his crew have been very professional, have always answered any questions I have had and are priced reasonably. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is having website issues or needs a face lift on their existing one.
