JDM - on a different note!

I see you are very kind in giving people advice. I was looking at a franchise to purchase. One of them was 'Geeks on Call'. Any feelings on that one? I am not sure what the future holds for such businesses but would love to hear your feedback. I also have other ideas but don't know where to start. Is there a way to reach you to ask these questions?

What to write?

Let me lead off with a few bills presented to people I know.

1. "Install Microsoft XP." 400 US bucks.
2. "Install Wifi Router, configure 3 machines to use said router." 900 bucks.

I'm unsure if this is an indication that geeks on call is doing fine or thatn the PC and peripherals industry should be taken out and hanged.

As for Geeks on Call...

In reply to: JDM - on a different note!

I don't really know much about them. What I can tell you for sure is that the market for such services is becoming saturated. I'd recommend that you find yourself another niche.

You can ask me anything you like right here in this forum. (Open forums give you the benefit of additional opinions and advice.) You can also email me through my member profile. Make sure you write something like "From CNET Member 'hh'", or something like that, as the subject. (Your first stop will be my junk-mail bin, so you'll need to stand out.) And include your email address if you want me to reply directly.

Sincerely, JDM
