Xmas at an Alcolholstel

No yard ornaments, no tree and no presents, last week Cindy and I ignored the holiday season and booked a stay at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun. We had originally planed to spend a week in Playa Del Carmen at an inexpensive hotel but with the devastation caused by Hurricane Wilma and the closure of so many hotels resulted in Air Tran canceling all service to the area. Just a week ago I found a three-night package with a charter carrier.
For most of my life I have looked down upon those who traveled to other nations only to escape to resort hotels where they were fed, pampered and guarded from any contact with the local culture. I thought I would never be reduced to laying out by the pool along side so many sunburnt bourgeois vacationers sipping upon fruit flavored cocktails while ordering about whatever staff is within earshot.
The first indication that this trip was different was when our plane appeared on the tarmac bearing the logo of a restaurant noted for the risqué apparel of its female employees. It seems that Pace Airlines the charter carrier of this flight operates Hooters Air and uses the distinctively marked aircraft for their flights. The gate attendant sadly told me that there would be no Hooter’s girls on the flight. During the flight the crew did not once mention Hooters Air but referred only to Pace airlines. But the safety instructions found in the forward seat pocket did feature a healthy young lass in a Hooter’s uniform (with the addition of a pilots cap) saluting those seeking the nearest emergency exits and the proper use of flotation devices.

Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
Reasons I chose them over the others:
1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
How did they do it
1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
My Experience
I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob,

sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
