FITTING THE PART
By Eddie L Hines
GOING INTO EFFECT
Effective October 1, 2005, we are implementing a new, more efficient pricing structure Our new catch-all flat rate, regardless if it is in the daytime or after hours for 1 computer will now be $80 an hour. If we are servicing 2 computers in the same location at the same time, the new catch-all flat rate will be $100 an hour. For 3 computers, the cost will be $120 an hour. Catch-all means any services that you want performed that don’t fall in the pre priced projects listed our services web page, or if multiple projects are to be performed on one computer at time of visit. All services can now be paid online using a check or credit card so you can save your paper checks for other bills! Well how do I avoid paying these higher prices? (cont. on pg 2) Have you ever made a bad decision after it was too deep in the process to turn back? Well we just had a bad experience closing on the new house because of just that. By not doing proper research and trusting people we really did not know, we ended up going through a nightmare of a closing. We trusted in a real estate and mortgage company that did not deserve the trust we gave them. The process was littered with incompetence, withheld information, non disclosure of important procedures we had to accomplish, and unrealistic expectations. I feel the same way when it comes to buying a computer. You are putting your trust usually in the store clerk, who rarely has your best interest in mind. Instead of leading you over the computer that will make him the most commission, he should first see if you and he/she have a good rapport. They should first ask you what your goals are when it comes to the computer. Asking that will make sure that the computer and parts you buy fit your vision of computer success. Some of the questions you need answered are… • Will you watch TV or DVDs on this computer? (Why pay an extra $500 for parts on a computer you will rarely use, like a TV Tuner or DVD burner) • Will this be a business computer or an entertainment center? (Business-only computers cost $500 less then gaming machines or multimedia PCs) • How long are you going to want to keep this computer for? (If you are going to want to keep it for 5-7 years, consider a pc with lots of expansion ports) • Are you going to store lots of data on this computer? (Get a pc with lots of hard drive space for music downloads or use it as a file server) (cont. in pg 2)
FITTING THE PART (cont.)
By asking these questions on the front end, you will save a lot of anger and resentment toward the sales guy because you know that you got what you paid for and you are going to use the most of what you invested in. When it comes to buying a house or getting a mortgage, we now recommend Home America Mortgage and Keller Williams Realty.
This month we would like to congratulate Dr. Dan Kuehne as
the September KCC

PRICE CHANGES... (cont.)

People who refer me to their friends and family get up to a 25% discount on their services. This should encourage you to spread the word of our services because it will help you save money in the long run. With more technicians to serve you and more convenient payment methods, we feel we are continuing the great service you have been privileged to enjoy!

Tips of the Month
How to Disable Browser Add-ons in XP SP2
Service Pack 2 adds several functions to Internet Explorer; one of these is the Add-on Manager. You can use it to disable add-on programs that may be causing problems, or just to view the add-ons that are installed. Here's how: 1. In Internet Explorer with XP SP2 installed, click Tools | Add-on Manager. 2. In the Add-on Manager dialog box, you can view the names, publishers, status (enabled or disabled), add-on type and file name for any browser add-ons that are installed. 3. To disable an add-on, right click its name and select Disable. You can't remove add-ons through the Add-on Manager; you'll have to uninstall the program that installed the add-on. For more info about using the Add-on Manager, see: http://www.wxpnews.com/rd/rd.cfm?id=050809HT-Disable_Addons (cont. on pg 4)

Spiritual Word of the Month
Roughed Up To Grow Up
Read: Hebrews 12:1-11 Do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction. —Proverbs 3:11 Bible In One Year: 1 Chronicles 17-19
Many Christians have to be lovingly roughed up before they will grow up. Although the heavenly Father never allows His children to suffer needlessly, sometimes He lets them experience hard knocks so they'll become mature believers. (cont. on pg 4)
Tips of the Month
Outlook How-to: Use the Future Delivery Feature to Send Mail Later
Sometimes you may want to compose or respond to an email message now, but you'd like to wait a while before sending it. Maybe you don't want it to reach the recipient until he/she is at a certain location, or maybe you don't want the recipient to get it until you're out of the office. Maybe you just don't want the recipient to know that you're answering his mail five seconds after getting it - he might start expecting such quick responses all the time. Maybe you belong to a discussion list that only allow each member to post once and day and you've already used up your daily allotment, so you need to delay sending your new post until after midnight. Whatever the reason, you can use Outlook's future delivery feature to send the message when you want it sent, without having to save it and then remember to send it later. Here's how: 1. Compose your message and then click the Options button on the toolbar. 2. Under Delivery Options, check the box that says "Do not deliver before." 3. Enter a date and time in the drop-down boxes to the right. 4. Click Close. 5. Now click the Send button as usual. Your mail will be sent on the day and time you specified. Note that the time stamp information will be the compose time rather than the actual sent time.
Spiritual Word of the Month... (cont.)
The need for "bad weather" to stimulate growth can be seen in nature. Scientists say that the seeds of some desert bushes must be damaged by a storm before they will germinate. They are covered with hard shells that keep out water. This allows them to lie dormant on the sand for several seasons until conditions are right for growth. When heavy rains finally come, the little seeds are carried away in a flash flood. They are banged against sand, gravel, and rocks as they rush down the slopes. Eventually they settle in a depression where the soil has become damp to a depth of several feet. Only then do they begin to grow, for moisture is absorbed through the nicks and scratches they picked up on their downhill plunge. Similarly, difficulties may be needed to wake up a sleeping saint. This may hurt for a while, but if we yield to the Lord we will find that life's bruises can mark the beginning of spiritual advances. We may prefer to remain "seeds," but He wants us to become "fruitful trees." —Mart De Haan
Should Thy mercy send me sorrow, toil, and woe, Or should pain attend me on my path below, Grant that I may never fail Thy hand to see, Grant that I may ever cast my care on Thee. —Montgomery There are no gains without pains. FOR FURTHER STUDY Knowing God Through Proverbs
