FOUNDER RETIRES, NEW CO-OWNERS ANNOUNCED (September 1, 2015)
After a good effort to continue to work, the founder, Linda Pereira, has stepped down and handed her remaining portion of shares in That Computer Chick, LLC, to her daughter, Emily Petersen as of September 1, 2015. Linda developed movement and brain disorders in June 2013, and was occasionally able to assist in running the business, but her health continued to decline. In August 2015, she realized it was time to take care of herself, not her company. Kimberly and Emily have not only become good friends over the years, but work very well together, have expert senior technician skills in all areas, have a natural sense for running the business, and have already made great decisions to help keep Linda's dream going.
KIMBERLY AUSTIN, NEW CO-OWNER (July 2014)
Kimberly was asked to become a partner with Linda to help run the shop after Linda's health issues continue to plague her since she fell ill in June 2013. With the addition of Kimberly, Linda is thrilled to have a professional, expert and dedicated employee become a co-owner with her. See her bio under Contact.
THE NEW DUE WEST STORE IS OPEN (April 4, 2012)
We officially opened our new store in Suite 260 on April 4, 2012. We're in the same mall, to the right of Julep's. Why? TO SERVE YOU FASTER!! Our new store is so big the average wait time is only 1-2 days! Gone are the long wait times, the old "queue," and the bad parking. And we did it all without raising our prices, which we haven't changed for 4 years. Stop in, even if it's just to say, "Hello."
We LOVE our customers, and thank you for all your referrals to family and friends! We did it for you.
NEW LOGO & WEBSITE (Feb. 1, 2012)
We needed an update, so a great big THANK YOU to Angela Pereira of Peartree Photography for giving us an overhaul in the design department! We have a new logo, a new chick...and a new website. We're not quite done with the "real" website (way cooler than this one), but we hope this temporary one will give you an idea of what's to come. A big THANK YOU to Peartree Developers for our new website!

CBS ATLANTA EVENING NEWS (Feb. 16, 2011)
We were flattered by the request for an interview after assisting a client who had her accounts hacked, but they clipped a critical statement. We gave an example of the types of hints people use, and how obvious it would be to guess the password. The purpose of the story and this statement was to help you see what NOT to do. If your password is your phone number, "password," "qwerty," or "12345678," please change it now. We recommend making your passwords tighter and longer, your hints not so obvious, and checking your facebook privacy settings frequently. Use a combination of numbers, upper and lower case (they cut that, too), and when possible, add a symbol. Don't set the same password for everything, and don't let anyone have your passwords. Computer professionals should never ask for your email, financial, or social media passwords. If you require assistance with products that require a password, your presence should be required while said services are performed. CBS no long has this story available for viewing.
