See how to create a new, scheduled backup to an external drive using the tool.It isn’t always easy to get people to back up their systems. Sometimes end users are being lazy, but sometimes the problem might be that the backup tool is difficult to use. A free, volunteer-developed tool called Synchronicity can have end users backing up (with scheduled backups) with ease without having to spend…

CADStations or Engineering Workstations.

I am building a line of inexpensive (low cost not cheap there is a difference) workstations and I can custom build them if you want certain things. My base configuration should run anything and everything you need for the next few generations of CAD. These are not hot off the assembly line HP or Dell. These are hand built in my shop and then shipped to you and tested in house. No take a number and call a tech center that you can not get the help your need or understand. If you are not looking…

Works with XP to Win 7 64bit (may work with win 98 but not guaranteed).  You can use this to get the data from your data collector without cables to your workstation in the office or to sync with your phone or any other Bluetooth device you would like to use it for. These are not the low power class 1 deices this is a Class 3 capable of…

Do you have computer problems?   Do you feel like this?

  • Dynamic Coordinate Geometry Software for the Land Surveyor. Check it out. Free Download.
  • Since our industry is usually at the forefront of technology, I doubt people need to hear what control-alt-delete does, but I can share this link, which I think has some really good tips: then search computers, electronics, etc to find tips that others share about almost any issue or category.
  • It seems that no surveyors are having computer issues. I just don't see how this can be. But I am happy for you all. If you have questions or would like to see something please feel free to ask.

  • I may not have answers to problems; I can support you with knowledge that you are not the only one to ever had that problem.


  • If anyone needs computer help feel free to contact me and I will do what I can to answer some questions. I also have software that will allow us to share keyboard video and mouse (KVM) over the internet if you think your really stuck and or need more help then a text can accomplish. I use this to maintain entire networks (My full time job) so its fast easy and reliable. Think of me as your IT dept without the full cost of an onsite IT dept when I login and do repairs.
