TechnoMom, Ltd.

Wel­come! I am Cyn­thia Armis­tead, aka Tech­noMom. I am the geek who under­stands you and your needs, because of my unique com­bi­na­tion of tech­ni­cal skills and eclec­tic back­ground. I offer tech­ni­cal sup­port and train­ing ser­vices to indi­vid­u­als and small busi­ness­es. If you’re in the metro Atlanta area, I can come to your loca­tion or help you remote­ly. If you’re not in this area, I’d be hap­py to help you remote­ly.

  • I can assist you with Win­dows, Microsoft Office, the Inter­net, and email.
  • Do you think your com­put­er might have a virus? Has it got­ten slow­er, or are you get­ting pop-ups when you’re on the web? I can remove mal­ware from your com­put­er and repair the dam­age it has done to your sys­tem.
  • If you have more than one com­put­er or a com­put­er and mobile devices like a smart­phone or table, I can help you net­work them togeth­er to share files and print­ers.
  • Do you need help mov­ing files from your old com­put­er to your new one, or set­ting up a back­up sys­tem?
  • Are you not sure if it’s worth the mon­ey to upgrade your old com­put­er, or if you need to buy a new one? I can help you with that deci­sion — as well as decid­ing what to buy.
  • Are you sit­ting in front of a new com­put­er or look­ing at your new smart­phone or tablet, feel­ing lost? We can spend an hour or two togeth­er and get you up to speed.

I start­ed learn­ing about com­put­ers in self-defense back when I did admin­is­tra­tive work, because the IT peo­ple usu­al­ly did­n’t have time for admin staff, or they were rude and con­de­scend­ing when we asked them ques­tions or report­ed prob­lems. After a while, I did­n’t need the IT staff for the most part, and my co-work­ers start­ed com­ing to me for help instead of ask­ing the “com­put­er peo­ple” to fix things. My hus­band took a job 150 miles away from Atlanta in 1990, and my employ­er could­n’t find any­one to do my job, so I got my own com­put­er and began work­ing from home. Soon after that, I had my first con­sult­ing job, teach­ing some­one else how to use his com­put­er.

Things have changed a lot since 1990, but I’ve kept up with them, and I can help you, as well. You should­n’t have to learn what I did to use tech­nol­o­gy as a con­ve­nient tool. Your smart­phone, tablet, and com­put­er are all great ways to stay in touch with your fam­i­ly and friends, but that can’t hap­pen if they aren’t work­ing prop­er­ly, or if you don’t know how to use them!

If you need a hand, give me a call at 478–787-4475, or use the con­tact form here on the site. I look for­ward to hear­ing from you!
