Hey Pinch Me: Ducktoes Makes Dmoz!!

Dmoz Directory is the most sought after directory in the history of the internet and it can be extremely difficult to get into. Just this last week my listing for my company Ducktoes Computer Services was accepted by them. It may have been earlier but I just noticed last week. So I’m swooning over the discovery…and now listing my clients too, to see if I can get them into it.

Read more about this here in my SEO blog.

After this month, I’m not taking more SEO clients for awhile, but you can read about my SEO services here.

If Microsoft Calls, Hang Up – Part 2


Woman in office talking on phone.

If Microsoft calls, hang up!


Microsoft doesn’t call people. Well, that’s not totally accurate, I’m sure they call people they are doing business with, but they don’t call ordinary people and tell them they have viruses on their computer. Not ever. They never show them the error logs in adminstrative tools and then ask for a credit card to fix the errors. So if someone calls you and says they’re from Microsoft, do yourself and your IT company or tech a favour and hang up immediately. Do not allow the criminals access to your computer. If in doubt call us at Ducktoes. We’ll tell you the caller is a fraudster, a criminal, a bad guy, someone after your money and nothing else. We’ll tell you to hang up.

One of my clients, who is also a friend and neighbour, fell for the fraud last week. He is such a nice and honest man, he assumes other people are honest too and was caught off guard momentarily. It is very understandable. He allowed the caller access into his computer. However, when asked for a credit card, my neighbour suspected something and hung up, yet the criminal had already put a password on the computer and disabled the keyboard and mouse. No one could log in. I took the computer into the shop and we hacked into it and removed the password but it was difficult and we almost couldn’t do it.

Here is the first part of this article written awhile ago.

Just remember Microsoft doesn’t call people, ever, to inform them their computer is malfunctioning. Never, ever, ever. So hang up.

New Web Design: Dawsco Coffee Services Inc. Website

Ducktoes Web Design has just finished one of our latest web designs.  Dawsco Coffee Services is a successful, efficient, major Calgary coffee business.  They needed a three-headed website with a landing page and three distinct sections that reflected this success and status, so we created a unique, new generation, and clean-looking  landing page with the three sections displayed with large icons.

Each section has its own look and feel under a clean and professional unifying theme.

The Office Coffee Services Section is a persuasive display of DawsCo’s top-of-the-line business coffee services, promoting to Calgary business owners the benefits of using their coffee services.

The Online Keurig K-Cup Shop is a new online service offered by Dawsco that sell Keurig K-Cups and K-Cup accessories online.  We incorporated the clean, professional look into a simple-to-use and attractive shopping cart.  170 different K-Cups and accessories are offered here to online customers throughout Alberta and Canada.

The Boutique is one-page section displaying Dawsco’s inhouse specialty K-Cup storefront.

Of course we also made the web design responsive so it looks good on a smart phone, tablet, notebook, and desktop.  This is how the business coffee services page looks on a smartphone.

Laptop Repair

Laptop repair is difficult since since the laptops can be difficult to open.  The plastic gets brittle and tends to snap or disintegrate, the cables and connectors can break or short out, pins on connectors can bend.  Also it is difficult to get parts.  New parts from the manufacturers are expensive, used parts can be difficult to come by and require a lot of online research.  It is a risky and time-consuming business but since more and more people have laptops or notebooks, computer repair businesses must offer this service.
