Some of you may recall about a month ago when my computer suffered a near-fatal accident — you are totally forgiven, Marius, so no worries — and the fact that I was briefly offline. Well, when the disaster happened I was mad enough to bite the fangs off of a king cobra, but I kept it together since it was clearly an accident, but I began to panic when I realized there was no way could afford a new computer. My mind raced as I mulled over my options, and then I remembered Harry, an old friend who also happened to be a Mac whiz.
I picked up the kitchen’s phone and punched in Harry’s digits, expecting not to reach him because it was one of those days, but the internet gods were on my side and I was granted an audience with the Wizard. Harry listened to my impassioned (translation: “freaked out”) ranting, and when I was done his affable voice assured me that all would be well. He even invited me over for a next day repair session, and so I braved torrential rain and schlepped my beige ass to Queens to turn his talented hands loose upon my poor, injured laptop (boy, that reads kind of questionable…).
When Harry let me into his high-tech sanctum, it was more of a social visit for me than a tension-fraught case of twiddling my thumbs while some dickhead ripoff artist molested my machine, possibly even stealing some of the naughty pics that dwell deep in its hard drive. We shot the shit while Harry worked his magic, and I was put totally at ease; I may be a rabid blogger, but I am the worst kind of Luddite and have no head for tech stuff, so Harry is a major godsend. When all was said and done, Harry had restored my computer, and then some, thereby lowering my blood pressure and allowing my never-ending quest for cyber-porn to continue in earnest.
So if you live in the NYC area and need someone who actually knows what the fuck he’s doing to look at your ailing Mac — not PC — I cannot recommend Harry’s skills highly enough. So, here’s his info already!
