Summer Activities

Did you know that most aquariums and zoos have free, printable coloring pages? National Geographic even has a whole printable coloring book! Most of them include fun facts, like did you know that sea otters cuddle to stay together as the ocean moves?
My favorites are the Monterey Bay Aquarium, National Geographic Kids, and zoowithus.com. I also really enjoy not having to find parking. Zoo with Us has a list of major zoos with links to their coloring pages.

Correction

Our new address is 12045 Hanson Blvd Coon Rapids Mn 55433, not 14025 Hanson.

Exciting news!

We are moving into a new space! We are moving the beginning of July to 14025 Hanson blvd. We know this change may be inconvenient for some people but we are hopeful that this new space makes things a little easier for most of our customers. The parking lot is easier to get into, the shops next door are a pizza place and a breakfast cafe so, if your repair is going to be fast, like a simple tune up, then you can enjoy some lunch or breakfast while you wait.


CCleaner Update

We've had a couple of people call in concerned about the updates to CCleaner and the missing registry button. You can skip that part of the monthly to do list, most of the time no one has any issues with their registry anyway. Otherwise, everything is good to go as always.

Memorial Day

Hello, we will be closed on Saturday, 5/25, for Memorial Day weekend. We will be open Tuesday for our normal hours. Thank you!

New Grad?

If you have a new high school graduate, make sure their computer is set for college! Whether their current one needs a tune up or they need a new one we can help. We just restocked our refurbished computer stock. We even have a 2-in-1 with a touchscreen!

Making Minnesota

Hey folks! We just wanted to share with you something super awesome from the Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS). They have a free activity book about the history of Minnesota and how awesome the state is now. It talks about the people who live here, the dinosaurs and megafauna that would have been in the area, the climates and natural resources, the lakes, the agriculture (including our amazing wild rice), and all the outdoor fun we have available to us as Minnesotans! This is meant for kids but I did order one for myself, despite being 27. This book is entirely free (including shipping for MN residents and anyone out of state can get one for just the price of shipping.

We aren't getting paid for any of this, we just want to share the MNHS and the beauty of Minnesota with everyone! Of course we wouldn't share something this awesome without giving you the link to get one for yourself. Order yours here.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Stories Foundation

Hey folks! When you stop in for your computer tune up make sure to stop by and talk to Deb about the Stories Cafe coming to Ramsey off of Armstrong. The Stories Cafe helps support the Stories Foundation, which fights human trafficking in Minnesota. They are selling some really cool bracelets to help raise money to fund the cafe. The bracelets are $15 and the quality is amazing. You can check out the Stories Foundation at storiesfoundation.org. Deb at Impact Accounting has 150 bracelets to sell, let's help her sell them all!

Thank you!

Antivirus for my Phone?

Did you know you can get antivirus for your phone? Both of our recommended  antivirus programs, Avira and Malwarebytes, have mobile versions! Just search for them in your app store and download the app. They run scans the same way they do on your computer. 

Closing Early

We have closed early today because of the weather. We hope you have a beautiful day and we will see you tomorrow !

Getting Political Spam Texts?

Hi! We have had quite a few people either calling or popping in asking how to stop getting spam messages for political candidates. They should have  away for you to unsubscribe or stop but if you go that route and they don't stop, you can block the number. We also recommend reporting the spam texts to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). You can do this by forwarding the text to 7726 (SPAM) or by visiting fcc.gov. The FCC has also compiled a list of what you can do to stop spam calls. We will include a couple of links to FCC web pages that can help you with this. As always you are also welcome to pop in or give us a call, we are happy to help!
