The Phantom Computers story
Let me introduce my self, my name is Sean Moore. The owner operator of Phantom Computers. I’d like to share the Phantom Computers story with you. Not many computer shops stories begin on a fruit farm, like this one does. I was raised by my grandparents the late Dave and Rebia Pierson of Ripley New York. They ran a vary successful fruit farm in Ripley New York for many years. I watched how my grandparents, and how they treated every customer as if they were a good friend. I remember going places with my grandpa and it seemed like he knew someone everywhere we went. They were always happy to see him coming and greeted him with “ Hey Mr. Pierson, how you doing!”. Once I asked my grandpa what he like most about farming. He said: “ The farm makes feel like I’m closer to GOD. I love to see things grow and I really love the feeling I get when a satisfied customer walks out the door and I know I sold him good produce at a reasonable price. Then I’ll sleep good tonight”. When I look back its so plain to see, that they really had worked hard both in the fields and with the customers to make a small fruit farm work. I mean we had folks come as faraway as Niagara Falls or Ohio just to pick our U-pick tomatoes and peppers. Then when I was in 7th. Grade my grandparents had retired and sold their farm. Then shortly after that my grandparents bought me a TRS-80 color computer. My first computer! This was at the suggestion of my high school principle, who somehow had some incite into my computer abilities that were yet to come. It was that one computer that started me off on a life long journey. The rest is merely history now. So when you hear our slogan you will understand what we mean when we say: “ Phantom Computers, The service you deserve at prices you can ford“.
I’d like to leave you with three computer tips:
1). BACK UP YOUR FILES! Its not if but more truly like how soon will it happen to you. Someday your computer will crash, or hard drive will fail and all the files on it will be gone.
2). Dust Bunnies do KILL! Have your computer case cleaned out every 6 months. CPU heat sinks, fans and power supply fans cant cool off if they are plugged up by dust bunnies. And the if the CPU. fan gets clogged and stops turning the CPU will overheat and burn up. The same thing happens to many power supplies as well.
3). With all the virus that are out and about, keep your virus software up to date. Remember tip # 1! Also remember there are many new virus out there that try to trick you into installing virus that prevent you from using your computer, unless you pay them to remove their virus first. So if your computer reports that “Windows” has found a virus.. Stop right there, Windows its self cant detect virus. If the virus warning does not show your virus scanning software’s name or show its logo, don’t click the “remove virus” button. Just click the close button. When the virus alert does not show your virus scanners name or show its logo, its trying to trick you to install a virus that will make you pay to have that virus removed!
