Hi, I'm Andrew Hockings. I live in Harberton near Totnes.
I fix computers and other techie things for a large customer base in South Devon I have built up over the last 12 years.
I got hooked on computers when my friend in school got a Sinclair ZX81 and he couldn't keep me off it. I was lucky enough to get a ZX Spectrum for Christmas in 1983 and I never looked back. I programmed it, pulled it apart, upgraded it (when you weren’t supposed to) and generally spent hours learning about how it all worked.
I eventually sold it and got a Commodore Amiga and did it all over again. Then the farm (which I worked on) got a new PC. I upgraded that until it wasn't the same machine.
Overall I have around 31 years of experience working with many different types of computer.
After a stint at Farming and other things I decided I could put all this knowledge to use and start helping people with their computing problems. This was around 2001. The rest as they say, is history.
My motto is simple. If you're going to do a job, do it properly.
To that end, I repair all customer computers as if they were my own.
