Welcome to Bits, Bytes & Chips - Computer Services
It' was 2005 when the Bits and Bytes column first appeared in the Charlotte Sun and it has been a pleasure and an honor to write a column each week. I hope that they have been informative, educational, humorous and just plain interesting to read. This column was never intended to be aimed at the technogeeks and as such it was designed to be easy to understand and follow along. I have had the opportunity to visit with many of you in your homes and it is a good feeling to see file folders of past columns sitting on the desk beside the computer. Bits, Bytes & Chips is located in beautiful Punta Gorda, Fl.
When emailing questions, please provide as much information as possible. Questions of general interest will become column topics from time to time.

Court Nederveld spent many years maintaining and servicing desktop computers, computer servers, switches and routers. Prior to that, he taught 1000’s of employees how to use a new business applicaton for a major corporation. Concurrently he taught the use of Word, Excel, Outlook and many other general use programs. After retirement in 2003, he and his lovely bride of over forty years did a bit of traveling. (Did I say bit?) They traveled 14000 miles around the United States in a 1966 Mustang convertible, spending two months on the road. Court was asked by the Punta Gorda Herald to document his travels in a weekly "From the Road" column which turned out to be extremely popular with readers. Upon their return to Punta Gorda, Court was asked to write a weekly computer column in the same style as the "From the Road" series.
Now Court Nederveld is a popular celebrity columnist. His column runs weekly on this site and is read by over forty thousand readers. He is invited to speak to clubs and organizations. His in depth and humorous insight on dealing with that ubiquitous metal box, have brought accolades from readers and editors alike.
2011 as part of a column series outlining self publishing for those folks that have great stories to tell, a new book, Epicuria: Adventures That Really Cook! was born. Late 2011 saw the release of a compendium of columns entitled Grumbles From The Keyboard that were printed since 2005.
I continue to make House Calls in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, Fl and enjoy visiting with folks and helping them resolve their computer prolems.
