The knowledgeable technicians at Computer Services Associates have 75 years' combined experience wrangling software and hardware demons and are trained to tackle an array of major operating systems. During a Mac or PC cleanup ($100), computer gurus scan and remove viruses, malware, spyware, and long-lost retainers before optimizing software and bench testing hardware. Technicians skillfully wield a rubber ducky to distract the computer tower and its insides before scrubbing behind its ears, blowing out all dust, and picking the lint out from between the motherboard’s toes. Computer Services Associates can also treat specific computer or printer maladies (standard service $75/hour) within five to seven business days or replace laptop hardware ($100/hour).
The seventh annual Macon Film Festival gives local cinephiles independent alternatives to standard Hollywood features. Each day’s screenings are organized into blocks, such as Thursday’s documentary block at the Cox Capitol Theatre, comprised of three films that, like memorizing the first ten thousand digits of pi, prove that fact is often more entertaining than fiction. The festival caters its films to all manner of attention spans, running the gamut in both run time and genre from comedy shorts to feature-length dramas. The Saturday morning block at the Cox Capitol Theatre features family-friendly fare. The festival gives visual voice to student filmmakers, talented but little known directors, and committed filmmakers bucking straight-to-microwave-release trends, and its city-spanning venues encourage popcorn-heavy community bonding.
