From Computers to Audio/Video and much more...
Technology should be an asset to life, not a hinderance. Unfortunately, the more complex something is, the more problems it is prone to having. Oftentimes when you have a computer problem, unless you are an expert yourself, you find yourself having to seek outside help. That outside help, however, can charge you a small fortune to fix even minor problems. Not here. We want to help, and we will work with you to get your computer or other devices working at a price that you can afford.
Have audio tapes you need converted to CD? Have Video Tapes you want on DVD? Have film you want transfered to DVD? We can do it. In fact, we can do a large range of things, if you need something, contact us and ask.
We can recover and back up your data for you, and at a much more affordable cost than you will find elsewhere. We can repair your computer, restore your system, upgrade your computer, installing hard drives, DVD burners, etc, as well as memory and any other hardware needed. We are not here to sell you anything you don't need, and we can point you in the right direction to find the best hardware and software for your needs. We can clean your system, secure it, remove viruses, spyware, set up a network for you, and much, much more... And feel free to e-mail us with questions... We can also build and maintain webpages for you, as well as showing you the best options for hosting packages.
We can do all sorts of video and audio conversions. We can convert your old records and tapes to CD or MP3, and clean them up so they sound better than the original. We can convert VHS video to DVD, and 8mm / Super 8mm to DVD, again with improvements to the original. And all this, again, very affordable.

When we convert your media, we often can also clean it up. This is most noticable on 8mm / Super 8mm to DVD Conversions.
The difference isn't as drastic on VHS, but we still clean up the original when needed. Same applies to cassette tapes and Records which we can convert to CD.
We also offer filming and photography services, DVD authoring, limited duplication. We can do various types of photography...
We have made music videos for bands, and much more. Below is a video we created for Psyche Corporation... Go to Aethyric Productions for more of our video and photography work.

Call or e-mail for an appointment;
We are in what used to be Rock River Model Hobbies. If you pull up the map online, it will put 7762 Rock River Road as further down the road than it actually is. If you use 7752 it should get you to the right address.
The following are what we recommend you check out.
We can not recommend these programs more. We have seen far too many computers with Norton on them, fully updated, loaded down with viri. Same goes for McAfee, TrendMicro and others. We have never seen a computer running either of these, updated, with virus infections. You can buy even more secure versions from both of these companies as well.
DO NOT RUN MORE THAN ONE VIRUS PROTECTION PROGRAM ON YOUR COMPUTER!
This can make matters worse, not more secure. Pick one and use that one, and that one only, otherwise you can have conflicts between them.
Spyware and Adware
SuperAntiSpyware - Free for home use. The most effective piece of software at the moment. The free version does not do real-time protection, you can buy a lifetime subscription for cheap if you want that type of protection.
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - Also very good piece of software. Highly recommended. Again, free for home use, and you can buy a lifetime subscription for fairly cheap for realtime protection.
CCleaner - Good Temp File Cleaner to help you free up drive space.
OpenOffice - This is basically a free version of Microsoft Office. It likely does anything you will ever need from Office without the hefty price tag.
Firefox - Internet browser by Mozilla, far better than Internet Explorer. Not only is it more secure, but it is endlessly customizable.
Thunderbird - Powerful e-mail application, also by Mozilla, and again, secure and with lots of add-ons to customize your version as much as you want.
Paint.NET - Like OpenOffice, this is a free alternative to Photoshop. It is not as complex, but it has many of the most useful features found in Photoshop and uses far less resources.
Livesync - A fantastic and free Microsoft program that allows you to sync a folder across multiple computers. Good for sharing files with others, or backing up your data if you have more than one computer. It can also allow you to access files on your home computer from a remote one.
Dropbox - Another file sharing utility, it allows you free storage space to allow other people access to various files. Use our link to get us a referral.
John's Background Switcher - Cool utility that allows you to switch your desktop background in a variety of ways.
VLC Player - Easily the best overall video player you can get for free. Will play pretty much any format.
WinAmp - Great music player, without using a ton of resources.
Picasa - Photo organization software by Google. Richly featured and easy to use.
Trillian - Useful IM Software that allows you to put all your IM clients into one interface.
