Don, purchased his first computer, a Commodore 64 in the early 1980's. A few years later Don purchased his second computer from Radio Shack a Tandy 1000 running MS-DOS as the Operating System and consequently began his fascination with computers. In 1989 a friend introduced him to the Macintosh computer system. The Mac wasn't like any other computer of its time, it didn't run MS-DOS as its Operating System, you didn't type in commands to perform an action or launch an application, you just pointed and clicked at icons on the desktop with a mouse to perform actions and launch applications. The graphics on the Mac were outstanding and the mouse made using the Mac fun. It wasn't but a week before Don purchased his first Apple Computer, a Macintosh IIx and a couple months later an Apple LaserWriter IINTx laser printer.Don taught himself the Basic Programming Language. He then went on to learn several other programming languages COBOL, C, C++, Pascal and Objective C. Don soon developed two shareware products Dumpster and FileLift, with clients such as the National Geographic, The Washington School System and hundred's of other individuals. Don now specializes in helping his clients become more comfortable working with their computers and alleviating the stress and complications of purchasing and using new Apple products and technologies. His diverse skills with Apple computers allows him to assist clients new to Apple products or someone who has been using Mac's for years and just need some assistance, troubleshooting and, or advice. Don is here to help his clients in any way he can and nothing is too simple nor to difficult. If you are need of any assistance with your Apple product, Don is just a phone call away (508)322-1366.
