Hello all, I know this isn’t a website of the week per se, but I just wanted to let everybody know that Sam and I are re-opening our computer repair and consulting and web design business as of February, 2008. You might recall that our business name used to be Etechs, but coming out of our short sabbatical, we’ve chosen a new name for the business - Techsouth. You can find out more about our Birmingham Computer repair company by clicking on this link: TechSouth.Tv.
If you need your computer repaired (with pick up and delivery included) or a website designed - call us at (205) 683-6082. Thanks!
