- Windows 11 Start Menu8 November 2021 - 1:23 pm
I took the plunge and upgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Ok. It looks slicker, a bit of window dressing as far as aesthetics are concerned, and I won’t go into Window’s 11’s features and functions. But the thing that immediately strikes you is …
- Online Privacy, Ad Blocking, Data Collection and More19 February 2021 - 12:40 pm
With ever increasing actions by “Big Tech” in general to collect more and more data about us, and the rise in Governments monitoring what we are doing as well as our ISP’s, I’ve been meaning to write something like this for some time now.
But it was the recent actions by FaceBook to take down News Pages and Links…

I recently had dealings with Microsoft on behalf of a customer that I can only describe as disgraceful and disappointing. The customer in question was an elderly lady with Parkinson’s disease. She had been the victim of a crypto-virus attack, and I had no alternative other than ….

For the first time ever, I had a computer come in for repair that had a faulty SSD Hard Drive. They consist a fast Memory, and a controller. So this makes SSD Hard Drives super fast, and importantly to this conversation, super reliable.

Excellent customer service, called to see if they could help regarding my laptop and advised me to try something first (all for free over the phone). Did that and it seems to have worked. Thanks for your authentic and professional service.

I was very happy with Iain's service and the new computer he supplied me is great. I was quite concerned about Windows 7 finishing but Iain made the transition so easy I should have done it earlier!My new machine is terrific and I highly recommend him. His service is personalised and he takes the time to listen to you.

A custom built machine, fast customer service, fast build, works great. No complaints from me!

It was time for a new computer and I came across Iain's business after a google search. I have since purchased my new computer from Iain and have been nothing short of impressed with his business ethic, professionalism, expertise and realistic prices. My new computer is simply fantastic and Iain didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need (he even provided me with free advice over the phone). We run a small business and have now chosen to have Iain attend to any future computer repairs or sales.

Very helpful advice, and my problem was sorted out on the spot (pun intended) :-)It was the classic recovery of data on a hard drive when the computer won't start up.Thank you for helping me out of a sticky situation.
05:29 31 Jul 18
I've been dealing with Spotty Dog Computer Services for as long as I can remember. Probably around 18 years. Iain has supplied us with several Laptops and Computers over the years, and has assisted us with any IT issues along the way. I would happily recommend him for any computer related problems.
18:01 18 Jul 18

He knows what he is talking about although comes across a bit pretentious. Overall great services and he is really a nice guy.

Jeanette & I have been using Iain's services for the past twenty years.He has always come promptly to fix our complaint and has always been on time,everytime.He has saved our bacon on several occasions with his expert knowledge of computers.I would have no hesitation in recommending Iain( Spotty Dog Computers)to anyone.

I took my computer to a shop in Morayfield, I won't name them. I was told that I needed a new motherboard, and the cost to repair would be around $500. Something didn't feel right, so I thought I'd get a second opinion and called Spotty Dog. Iain asked me to bring the computer in, and said it was most likely something very simple. He looked at the PC while I waited, in front of me, and removed the RAM, cleaned the contacts, replaced it, and low and behold, my computer was fixed. I thanked him and asked how much, and he replied "don't worry about it, I didn't really do anything". So not only did I save $500, I received immediate service at no charge. How great is that? I have continued to use Spotty Dog ever since. A+++

I needed a new PC for my family business, and I was just going to buy off the shelf at one of the big retail stores. But after talking with Spotty Dog, I decided to go with a custom built PC. As Iain explained, we had the benefit of choosing what components were used and their quality. I have been very pleased with the resulting speed and performance, not to mention the reliability. I am so glad I didn't just buy what the retailers were trying to clear off the shelf.
06:23 26 Jun 18
I Have dealt with Iain for the past two years and have found him to be very professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Most importantly he is very prompt and will act immediately on all changes we require to our website. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an all round professional service.

Our business requires our computer system to provide reliable, solid and simple functionality with the ability to manage and store large quantities of data on a daily basis.Our ability to process, back up and retrieve data efficiently is critical.Iain has managed our computer system requirements for as long as I can remember and provides successful outcomes every time.

After years of being scared of entering into the world of websites and the internet platforms we found Spotty Dog. What a lot of wasted anxiety.Iain has led us through the process so professionally effective and at no stress. We now have a totally modern and revitalised business.Thanks.

Ian has been our computer Technician for at least 15years. He is knowledgeable and efficient at his work. We email him and get a response within 24hours. In the last 15 years we have purchased and had Ian build a number of computers for us. We have always found him to be prompt and friendly.
11:00 22 Jun 18
Iain has been my go to man for some years now. He has built two computers for me and sorted out problems with two others. I have always found him to be so helpful and so willing to do more than I ask of him. I thoroughly recommend Spotty Dog Computer Services.

We have used Iain (Spotty Dog Computers) for probably over 15 years. He has built & supplied us with many computers for both our business and personal use over that period. He has dealt with all our maintenance and repairs issues immediately, meaning his service is excellent. We consider his charges are very reasonable and will continue to use Spotty Dog Computers into the future.

I'm very pleased to be writing this review on Spotty Dog Computer Services. Firstly I cannot believe that such a talented web designer as Iain is a local, the web page he designed for me is out of this world and I still feel it's the best deal I've had.The after sales service is what I also like as Iain always makes himself available if I want changes done or things included and he always gives me good advice so I don't make any mistakes. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality, service and value for money, it ticks all the boxes for me. Eric Shields

Thanks to Iain from Spotty Dog Computer Services for his prompt service and excellent advice. When the home computer finally bit the dust, Iain gave me a fast assessment on the benefits of repairing versus replacement, and his direct advice and knowledge was refreshing. Iain had me up and running again with a new PC fully installed and operating in less than 24 hours. Highly recommended computer service provider.

We've been using Iain at Spotty Dog computers since moving to the Northside of Brisbane 4 nearly 5 years ago. He's thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced with a quick turn-a-round. We have sent a few people his way now, even people from the Southside who do the trip because he is just that good. You aren't going to find one of the shopping centre setups, here this week gone the next, Iain is a small business operator, home based been around for many years built on reputation.

I had an issue with my Outlook giving me an error message saying there was a problem connecting to the Gmail IMAP Server. I called Microsoft to see if they could fix it but they said they had no idea what was causing it. So I called Spotty Dog Computers and talked to Iain. He got me to take it to his office and leave it while he checked it out. To my surprise, later the same day I got a phone call telling me my Laptop was ready to pick up. You've gotta be happy with that kind of Service!!

WARNING ! To All Potential Website Customers -My Story -5 Months ago after searching through suitable Web Developers my wife and I settled on a Local Caboolture Computer Shop that promised they could not only supply the website that we needed, but that our website was guaranteed to have the WOW Factor.Previously they had fixed our computer and we where comfortable they would give us the wow site we wanted.Little did we realize that the WOW factor would refer to just how badly our website would be built and the Speed of our new $3500 website was the biggest Wow, Pages dropped out constantly,pages took over a minute at times to load and the site was breaking all over the place. It was unusable and so slow customers where leaving in droves.The money we paid took all of our resources and after 5 months left us with a site that was failing badly. Speed was our number one concern and here we had a site that was slower enough to make customers leave in droves.It was obvious we where losing customers and money because of the speed and page drop outs.We received a half built site that was amateur at best and completely useless.ENTER SPOTTY DOG- It was at this point where we sought the assistance of Iain from Spotty Dog Computers, as we simply had to get our site out of the current web developers hands and into someone that knew not only how to fix the speed but to set out our Website the way we wanted it.Iain not only managed to give us the site we wanted, his advice led us into building a site we are not only proud of, but our customers love it too.BEWARE- Just because your Local Computer Shop fixes computers, does not mean you will get an experienced Web designer or that they will produce what they promise in regards to building a website.SPOTTY DOG COMPUTERS - Guaranteed ! After dealing with several Developers I believe Spotty Dog Computers can deliver ANY website requirement needed, Iain has extensive knowledge in WordPress and this extensive knowledge is Impressive to say the least.Needless to say, Spotty Dog Computers now Host our Website, Maintain our Website and advise us on any changes we want to make in regards to Improvements.To say I am grateful we found Spotty Dog is an understatement.BUSINESS OWNERS NEEDING A WEBSITE - If you are looking for a business website or E-commerce store, then I offer you the chance to avoid my Mis-Fortune, give Iain from Spotty Dog Computers a call and save yourself a lot of money and heartache.If we had chosen Spotty Dog Computers at the beginning we would have saved hundreds of dollars and received the site we wanted in the first place only better.Thanks Iain for saving us and our website before it was too late.Needless to say we are now your biggest fan !

Iain at Spotty Dog Computer Services has just designed our website for Ali Cats Boutique Cat Boarding. We couldn’t be happier. Iain organised the web hosting and designed our website. We needed a website which we could edit and update regularly. Iain informed us on content requirements and how to update our site. He promptly replies to all our queries with accurate, concise, informative and illustrative instructions. We would highly recommend Iain at Spotty Dog Computer Services to anyone looking for reliable, local, supportive and affordable webhosting and website design.
