St Jude

St. Jude, as some of you might know, is the patron saint of Loast Causes.

A customer came to me recently with a laptop which was failing as soon as Windows loaded. A local computer shop had shrugged and said it wasn't worth mending. Client had given up with it and left it on te shelf for 6 months. A222, however, had it up and fixed for just £110.

So, do you have a computer which is gathering dust because it's not working properly?

Do you want to get it going again? Retrieve vital data stored on it? Get in touch with us via www.a222.net

We'll see what we can do. If it's not repairable then we can retrieve any data and dispose of it properly per our previous posting - you might even get some money back!

Bring out ye dead!

Old and dead computers are a problem. People worry about throwing them out because of personal or confidential data which they contain.
A222 can help.
So, what do we do with your old computer?
Firstly, all data is removed. If you need that data then it can be returned to you on some form of media or even loaded back on to one of your other computers. Alternatively we can retain it in our archives for you for a finite or infinite time.
The equipment is inspected and one of three things happens to each item.
Anything salvagable and of value is sold and the proceeds split - so you may get something back!
Working items with no commercial value are usually passed to a charity which provides computers for schools in Sri Lanka.
Whatever remains is properly disposed of via licensed or council recycling facilities.
So if your PC or laptop is on its last legs we can give it a safe secure send-off, find the best green solution, and maybe get you some cash back in the process.
Call us on 020 8 662 1124 or email to mail@a222.net

Wordpress - how to change the author of a post.

This is not immediately obvious and WP documentation is not 100%

The usual Edit mode does not always provide the author selection drop-down.

Instead, choose Quick Edit - this will work.
