The pet-loving technicians at Invisible Fence of New Orleans specialize in keeping man's best and furriest friends corralled, and happily so. Whether surrounding homes with a subterraneous containment system or setting up an indoor PetFree area, the techs design pet zones that match each owner's interests, then conduct training sessions to help dogs, cats, and dogs disguised as cats overcome their wanderlust. Invisible Fence's territory encroaches on the domains of bark control and behavioral training as well, and its efforts to improve the lifestyle of animals leads it straight into the world of pet doors, toys, heated wellness beds, and self-cleaning litter boxes.
In 1910, Harry Offner opened his first hardware shop on South Rampart Street in downtown New Orleans, setting the foundation for a local network of three retail stores with more than 27,000 items in stock and 90,000 more available through catalogs or the Ace Hardware website. Like a treasured heirloom or the gene for double-jointed elbows, the business has passed through three generations as Harry's grandkids currently mind the store to help homeowners and handy folks find cleaning and painting supplies, lawn-care implements, housewares, and tools from well-known brands. The knowledgeable staff also assists shoppers with a variety of services, from cutting keys and threading pipes to minor household repair jobs performed by licensed and insured handymen.
A high-tech computer tune-up is like a mountain spa retreat or month-long detox for your computer. Over time, the average personal computer accumulates a buildup of dust, viruses, spyware, and pigeon feathers that contribute to loss of power, incorrect shutdowns, and slow-running programs. The computer tune-up works on all these problems, determining the status of available virus protection and scanning for existing threats. Registry files are optimized, and unnecessary temp files, cookies, and unused programs removed. Erroneous start-up files are eradicated like so many reality-show contestants, while service packs and security updates are installed. The technician will also create a backup of your Windows registry and even clean the CD-ROM laser lens for an extra bit of personal polish.
