Welcome to the Art of Logic
Since 1999 Art of Logic has independently performed numerous tech & computer projects around the Gold Country of California- and the world after many years in the tech industry
Mostly it’s behind the scenes for home office users, not-for-profit and small office businesses, plus schools, sole proprietors and many individuals of all ages.
We don’t have retail or office premises- It’s all virtual, making Art of Logic extremely versatile for support and consulting. But I am indeed Real, and can do work in-person.
We tend to concentrate on specialized and custom issues rather than mainstream commercial work.
Past & present clients have included Nevada County, SBA, KVMR, OddFellows, Nevada County Land Trust, the North Star House and many more.
Also possibly your grandmother and certainly my neighbors.
I am a sole proprietor and an early practitioner of remote office working going back to being the Nevada County Community Network (NCCN.NET) systems engineer, Nevada County’s first dial up internet service provider and a not-for-profit that had well over 2,000 customers,
Also I was a partner in an Auburn internet for-profit provider at the height of the .COM Boom.
I’ve been a sole proprietor for almost 30 years so understand some of the issues of small scale businesses, as that’s what I am too.
Also I love to share ingenuities so have been a broadcaster of the call-in Zen Tech Radio Show since 1999, British accent and all.
I inform rather than advertise and facilitate rather than direct.
I enjoy long standing projects or one-offs, with a client base of several hundred, some of whom live in other countries.
It’s fun to stay up to date and recent projects which you can see in my blogs, such as VHS tape transcriptions, drone-flying, time-lapse camera work, Wordpress Websites,
custom Internet integrations, security research and tech journalism.
You can hire me to consult on simple computer recommendations all the way to full small office integration
I will fix simple stuff and specialize in migrations away from useless or obsolete tools or programs.
Mostly it’s been what goes on under the hood, behind the scenes and in the basement of the Internet when there are odd woes with timely Email delivery or funky looking web pages or odd messages
I thrive fixing esoteric nuts and bolts troubleshooting things like, say, Domain Name Service (DNS) and Mail Server woes.
I’ve worked extensively with GSuite AKA: Google Apps, AKA Google Workspace right from the start, while keeping track of marketing trends in naming things : )
Something funky happening on the Internet?
I’ll troubleshoot it.
Odd Error Message? Send it.
Low priority Email inquiries are generally free.
I’ll always tell you beforehand where any cost is involved.
Also happy to do more mundane stuff like get you off Hotmail or
find useful free replacements for broken Outlook installations….
Microsoft Office ran out of steam? I specialize in non pirated free replacement integration
I have many smart friends and colleagues to refer you to when I cannot easily find your solutions, by the way.
I never get bored but occasionally get frustrated with tech design,
– the ‘job’ (I call it ‘Play for Pay’) stays interesting as it changes all the time so I do not have to slow down.
All main platforms: Linux, Mac, Windows, IOS, and Android I deal with on an almost daily basis, and specialize on open source and granted hardware and software provision.
I got here via Dialup Bulletin Board Systems (ABC!-BBS) in the early 1990s, then Internet News Groups, then PHPbb for my Zen Tech Radio Show Blog, then Joomla! then to This, in 2014 or so.
WordPress. It’s all very Ingenious stuff worthy of slavery to our needs to master security, reliability, usability and simplicity-
