I was told by another computer repair man that my email data was totally lost and I had made serious wrong entries that couldn’t be fixed. In about 30 minutes, Jim found and fixed my problem and retrieved all my stored emails which I considered lost forever.

BOYNTON BEACH — When Margaret Reynolds woke up May 1, her bedroom door was closed, which was odd since she never closes it.
Then she noticed her television missing from her living room, according to a police report, and her computer, keyboard and monitor missing, too. Even the money in her wallet was gone.
Boynton Beach Police responded and determined the burglar got into the house through the rear sliding-glass door.
The crime has left Reynolds, 93, shook up to this day. But support from the community has made the situation a little better.
“I feel there’s still good people in the world, you know?” Reynolds told The Palm Beach Post this past week.
And it’s not only Reynolds who came out of this situation feeling like that. Boynton Beach Police officer Gregg Koch was the first responding officer called to Reynolds’ home after she called 911.
“She’s a sweetheart of a woman,” Koch said.
Koch and Reynolds got to talking and he decided to continue checking in on her.
The next morning, Koch offered to get her groceries, but Reynolds said she already had enough food. But she missed her television and asked Koch where she could get a new one. The officer shopped around, helping her get the television at BJ’s.
“She was ecstatic because it was 1 inch bigger,” Koch said.
Reynolds described Koch as an “unbelievable and caring” person.
The next project was a computer. Koch said he couldn’t help with that because he wasn’t knowledgeable in that area. So the department’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Slater, turned to a familiar outlet to get some help: social media.
“We have more than 18,000 people who like our Facebook page and more than 10,000 Twitter followers. We’ve reached out to them for assistance in the past … when a contractor scammed an elderly woman out of thousands of dollars, tore out her kitchen and never finished the work,” Slater said in an email. “It worked then, so I thought it was worth a try again this time.”
Slater posted a picture on Facebook of Koch and Reynolds sitting on her couch and explained the situation. The post received 982 likes and it was shared 456 times. She said she heard from more than a dozen people who wanted to help in some way. Jim Calfee was one of them.
Calfee, who owns Computing Solutions in Boca Raton, emailed Slater, and handed over a new Dell computer and monitor.
“I had one laying around and it just seemed like the right thing to do,” Calfee said.
Koch continues to check in on Reynolds and says he’s seen a positive difference in her since the burglary happened. He’s spoken so much about Reynolds at the dinner table, he said, that his children want her to come over.
The officer said the community’s response has sparked his interest in social media. But more important, “It’s restored her faith, and it’s restored my faith in the position, and why we are out here and why I do what I do.”

Jim came right on time just as he said, picked up my computer, called to tell me how long it would take to fix and how much it would be. He brought it back when done, came right on time , set it all up, answered all my questions, fixed other little problems with my printer and completely satisfied me.
The computer works perfectly and I would recommend him anytime.

Jim has been taking care of my computer problems for several years and has always done his work in a very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and prompt manner. He is honest and helpful beyond his duties as a technician. He even was very helpful when a certain big electronics chain store totally screwed my computer up and I had to call Jim to fix it it. He never criticized the other guys and fixed ALL the problems in a very fair and prompt manner. Thank you Jim!

I can’t rave enough about Jim and the work he did for us. His work was excellent, and he stands behind his work. Not being computer literate, Jim explained everything to me in terms I can understand. I would highly recommend him (and in fact I already have) for anyone who needs help with a computer.

Since I am in Washington, DC and my mother is in Lake Worth, I thought that when my mother’s network cameras, which I use for her security, crashed, I would be hard pressed to find someone to help. But after talking to Jim, I was wonderfully mistaken. Jim did an onsite visit and worked his magic. Within an hour everything was up and running. I recommend Computing Solutions for any need! Very reasonably priced and there when you need them. I couldn’t ask for more.

I first called Jim Calfee when a very computer literate resident from my community told me “I call Jim when I have a problem”. I have since had to call Jim for various needs , from saving my hard drive to cleaning out viruses to setting up a new computer. In all cases the work was completed quickly, professionally and reasonably. I have no qualms recommending Jim to anyone who has a problem with their computer. So far the feedback has only been positive.

When my hard drive crashed, it seemed the worst had happened because I had not backed up for months. Jim, from Computing Solutions, was able to pull all my data off the hard drive before completely reformatting the disk. The work was completed quickly and I was surprised to find that everything was back in place when my laptop was returned. I highly recommend Computing Solutions!

Rarely do you find a Service Technician in any specialty that is both talented and honest. We have found these qualities in Jim Calfee of Computing Solutions. We have been utilizing his services since 2001 and have moved our offices three times during that period. Jim has set our computer network up on each of these moves. He has helped us out of “Jams” more than once and each time given us superior service at reasonable prices. I would recommend him to anyone, who owns a small business, as ours is, and needs networking and computer repair services.
