lake tahoe web designOver a decade ago this website was the first commercial online e-commerce store in the Lake Tahoe area. 56K modems had taken the area by storm and I ran the online store on a Windows NT workstation I configured as a server using O'Reilly's WebSite Professional (later taken over by Deerfield), iHtml Merchant, and hooked up to the Internet using a blazing fast ISDN connection running at 128K!

The NT box was a blazer at the time, a Intel 586 running at 460Mhz. The entire system was rock solid and it still runs today, that is if I'd plug it back in and turn it on.

Today, I use the domains tahoestores.com, tahoestores.net, and tahoestores.org to name the various Unix servers I use to run my Internet properties. Tahoestores.net is currently deployed as our primary Internet server.

Computer Repair

I learned the basics of computer repair back in the late 70's and early 80s while at Texas Instrument's Digital System Division. While those monstrous motherboards fit in one of today's computer chips, the art of diagnosing and repairing a computer system remains the same. When it comes to fast, efficient computer repair experience does matter.
