For the Home Technology Enthusiast




About Teksupport

Teksupport was founded in 2007 in the spirit of sharing experience-based knowledge that hopefully will save hours of hopeless wait on tech support lines for the home technology enthusiast . Teksupport is based in Columbia, Maryland, USA. (click here for map).


It is largely the experience of an individual with over 20 years of experience in implementing home computer and technology solutions - starting from the days when personal computers had a 'whopping' 10MB hard disk and 384K of memory, and 9600 baud modem was considered high speed!
