Welcome to CSGNetwork and Computer Support Group
Service, Installation, Support & Information
We continue to support only Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser on our site, optimized for viewing at 800 x 600 resolution. That does not mean that you cannot use other browsers (in the IE emulation mode) on our site but the optimum viewing is with IE. None of the rest of the current browsers (December 2005) offer the needed capability for the majority of our pages, including calculators and converters. This is a decision based on popularity and ability.
December 12, 2005... I added two more videos, One for changing background images on the desktop and one to change the resolution on the screen.
November 29, 2005... We have introduced a new feature called One Minute Tech (aka 1minTech); in it we teach you how to do helpful things for your computer. The link is on the tabs section on the top menu. It is called "Video"; we sincerely hope it is helpful to you. We will be adding more useful "How To" videos every week.
November 27, 2005... The transition to a newer larger and faster server has taken place. We started yesterday, the 26th of November, and finished today. We have also quadrupled the capacity of our mail server. Should you notice anything unusual or inoperative, please visit our contact page and let us know about it. To the best of our knowledge, it appears that all is working well. We always answer mail within a day but if you don't hear from us, PLEASE contact us again. Thank you and enjoy the site!
November 25, 2005... By 6:00am pacific coast time, mail on our own server had almost doubled the largest previous volume ever. We also saw the volume increase on every site that we host, though not in as dramatic of quantities. The majority of it was incoming pops with numerous variations of the Sober worm virus. We caution all of you that this is rampant at the moment. We urge all of you to update your AV if you have not and if you don't have an AV, visit the www.grisoft.com site and get or try the AVG product. Use wisdom and common sense when opening ANY E-Mail with an attachment to it.
November 24, 2005... Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
July 18, 2005... We listened to your comments on the front page and we are making final cleanups of it before posting the vendor advertising you requested. Also be aware that we take pride in responding to each and every request for help and for your suggestions. If you don't get an answer within a very few days, please notify us again.
January 6, 2005... Our server was impacted critically today for 8 hours by an attack on it from outside the US. I really don't have any idea why, other than the fact that we do our best to help people, promote peace, happiness, Christianity and the American way of life. Perhaps some people don't like our attitude and feel that they can be online terrorists. The FBI is now involved... They will have more of a say in what happens from here than we do.
December 11, 2004... We are looking for a couple of good computer technicians, field or bench in Palm Springs, CA. We are also looking for part time office help for light office and telephone work. We listened to your comments on the front page and we are making final cleanups of it before posting the vendor advertising you requested. Also be aware that we take pride in responding to each and every request for help and for your suggestions. If you don't get an answer within a very few days, please notify us again.
September 1, 2004... We have begun a modification of the look and feel of our site; we are working on this continually, making what changes are needed. We have also (again) changed our server to a backbone level connection and "added horsepower" due to traffic volume; a wonderful problem (if you can call that a problem). Within a week or so, we should have much of the initial work completed, though the process will be ongoing for several months. If there are things you want to see or have us change, now is the time to let us know. We would like to hear from you as to likes and dislikes of the changes. .
July 28, 2004... On the 24th of July, we were faced with a new problem. It was one we had not encountered previously and was both a nice surprise and a dilemma at the same time. Our traffic, which has been growing by leaps and bounds, finally exceeded the bandwidth available for our connection to the backbone. We have since acquired several new connections and relocated to a huge new server. It may be a few days until all scripts are working again. If you issue mail to us and we do not respond immediately, please resend it after we post a note that all is well with our scripts. Our apologies for the inconvenience and our gratitude for the many new and previous visitors to our site.
January 27, 2004... We have had several mail attacks on our server in the last few days. All scripts dealing with sending forms and local mail on this server are back in operation. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
January 3, 2004... Due to the tremendous increase in traffic to our site, we found it necessary to move to a newer and more powerful server with much greater bandwidth and multiple connections to the Internet backbone. This move took place on 12/19/03. We are working out the differences in scripts and functions between our previous server and our new one. It should only take a few days. If you have attempted to communicate with us in the last couple of months and did not get a response, it probably was because we did not get your request; we finally determined that we were getting about one of every fifteen messages sent. Please try again. We also ask that if you see something that is not working correctly, please let us know. Thank you...

In the early '90s, we were lucky to have 100 visitors a week to our site. The Internet was not really a big thing back then. During 2001, we averaged 700,000 viewers a week; in 2003 that figure increased to about 1 million a week and is still climbing as of December 2005. Hundreds of schools and universities use content on our site as part of their computer curriculum. There is one (and only one) popup on this site; it is a quick guide menu at the top left of this page. The advertisers that we allow are family values organizations only. They have values similar to ours and we endorse and use the services and products they supply. We strongly encourage you to patronize them. If you find our site useful and helpful to you, please refer it to a friend or associate. Many of our most active pages have links to send the page (or a link) to a friend. To navigate our site quickly and easily, use the tables at the bottom of each page. Need a different language? Try Babel on the CSGNetwork site!
