Excellent Service From Green Earth Computers
I had a wonderful experience with Green Earth Computers in Northampton. My Powerbook computer died on January 15th. Since the computer was 7 years old, I didn't have a lot of hope that it could be saved, but I brought it to Green Earth, hoping for a miracle.
They weren't at all confident that it could be saved either, but they tested it thoroughly, found it was only hard drive failure and were able to recover all the data (I had a fairly recent backup, but there was some non-essential data I hadn't yet back up that I hoped could be recovered). Since it was a high end laptop, they felt I could get a few more years out of it with a new hard drive.
So with the new hard drive and full data recovery, it cost me $225.
Excellent service. Very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Metlife Auto And Home Owner’s Insurance
Interested in feedback positive or critical on MetLife through UMass. I just received bills from my current insurance company and they are rather high. No accidents, speeding tickets or claims. Bills always paid in full on time. When I called they could not come up with a good answer on why.

Service is important so I am willing to pay more for good service. Just not a whole lot more. I did the on line estimate tool and the MetLife auto insurance is significantly cheaper than what I am paying now. But that could be just a come on.

In addition, the Caretaker will be financially compensated for assisting at the four (4) AWC potluck dinner events and at rental events, as requested. The rate of compensation is based on the number of guests in attendance.

In-home Over-the-phone Help Available
Free 15 minute call (often times a bit longer) to see if I can even help and give you a sense of what is involved. I charge $75/hour and I am open to negotiating a different rate depending on the kind and amount of work you need done. (For example, I have a client who wants me to copy the contents of a hundred CDs full of digital photographs onto a hard drive. I am giving him a significantly reduced rate for that work since it is very simple and can be done at my leisure in the comfort of my own home.)

The best number on which to call me is my cell: 413-364-6325.

Nanny Referrals
Professional family looking for an in-house, preferably full-time nanny for an infant but part time would be considered. Any suggestions or leads? Care.com hasn't panned out, nor have the college bulletin boards / Amherst family center.

Daycare outside the house would also be considered in the Amherst area.

Thanks in advance!

Looking For Handy Man/contractor
Hi - I recently got overly ambitious about my home improvement abilities by removing cove base in my bathroom. I managed to remove the trim but in the process did some fairly extensive damage to the drywall (torn drywall paper). I'm looking for a handy man/contractor that I can hire to fix my mess and also lay a new ceramic tile floor. I need someone that I can trust who will do decent work at a fair price. Thanks.
