Calling all computer illiterates!

So let’s face it…We as a community love our porn. Love it! Gotta have it! The only problem is that frequently porn use can open us up to malicious software—the viruses, spyware, adware, worms, Trojans, and other generally nasty bits of software code that can wreak havoc on your computer system. 

Or maybe you need some favorite correspondence from a, ahem, loved one, to be accessible to you but hidden from other prying eyes using the same system as yours.

Or maybe you are setting up a new computer system and network for your business and you want to support other business owners in the GLBT community.

Whatever your need, and whatever your reason, GLBT Computer Repair is willing to assist with a variety of services.

GLBT Computer Repair "exists as a safe place for your computer repair." They specialize in discretion, and frequently can remotely access your computer at a time convenient for you to do many repairs, especially malware removal. This often eliminates a potentially embarrassing visit from a technician to your home.

I asked the owner, Tabitha, why we should choose her over one of the bigger computer repair/big box companies that specialize in in-home computer service calls. 

“Well, most computer services charge around $299 to do onsite virus removal," she says. "We will do it for much less while keeping in mind how important your privacy is."

Their understanding of discretion extends to payment options as well. They accept cash, of course, but they also accept checks and all major credit cards. The payment, however, does not reflect anything GLBT in the entry, removing any potential recriminations from frequenting a GLBT-themed business if one is still in the closet.

For those fully out and wanting to support GLBT-owned businesses, GLBT Computer Repair is owned by "family." The staff is trained to accommodate customers who are needing a professional to diagnose and treat any type of computer system break down, or who are looking to upgrade your system capabilities for a highly competitive price.

GLBT Computer Repair specializes in:  

  •  PC, Laptop, MAC Repair
  •  Tune-up and optimize a sluggish computer
  •  Software/Hardware Upgrades and Installation
  •  Install any hardware or software
  •  Setup and secure a wireless network (or troubleshoot existing problems)
  •  Computer Setup for homes and offices

National Margarita Day

A lot of us have really picked up an interest in tequila and it's no wonder. Its popularity is soaring in the U.S. and doesn't look like it'll be slowing down any time soon. The only contender would probably be whiskey. Meh, but they have their own day. Now, it's National Margarita Day and we put together some of the best margarita recipes around so you can pick one or maybe even all of them to try.

We have a few surprises in there too. Maybe it's not all about tequila but it certainly has a theme going on. Take a look at some of these great tequila brands and start making some amazing margaritas today!

Gender-Inclusive Universities and Student Privacy

For many students, attending university is a profound, often life-changing, transition. It is often the student’s first time living on their own without parental supervision. This lifestyle is also accompanied by a period of self-discovery, of defining and redefining a sense of personal identity largely independent of the influence of family and friends from home.

For students who are members of the LGBTQ+ community, this rite of passage can also be a deeply empowering one. Indeed, attending university may be the student’s first real opportunity to explore their gender identity in a safe, comfortable, and accepting college.

I had the opportunity to visit Mexico for an event José Cuervo was putting on, the unveiling of their premium tequila brand, Reserva de la Familia. The trip was all about tequila, how to drink it properly, how to pair it with food, and of course, visiting various points of interest in Guadalajara while tasting tequila along the way.
