My computer was in the shop in October; I found this computer repair technician through the internet that has his business in Redwood City, CA and every review said he was very good so I drove the long distance from my home to have him work on my dead computer. Well he fixed my computer and last month I had problems with my display (defective video graphics card on the new mother board that I had replaced) so I took it back to be fixed under the warranty and got it back the other day only to have something else happen; it kept powering off when the computer was moved. So I took another drive to the computer repair shop yesterday to have this problem checked out but I missed the technician by a few minutes because he had personal business to attend to and closed for the day; a wasted trip. Finally took my computer in today and the technician thinks something was probably loose so I’ll wait to see when it is repaired and drive to Redwood City again (I must have done 6 round trips and another one will be required to pick up my computer when its fixed).
Well, the only good thing to come about this continuous travel to Redwood City is around the corner from the computer repair shop I found this old building with an old picturesque facade. The name is the Holmquist Hardware established in 1895. I searched the internet for some information and found that many photographers took photos of this building and a few posted some information about the building. In fact, a former employee of this business corrected the photo blogger about this building; it was owned by Rudolph Carl Holmquist’s mother and actually housed a machine/blacksmith shop until 1960. The hardware store was across the street from this building. The former employee also corrected the misinformation that this building was damaged by a fire in 1954 (it never was) and was left vacant ever since then; the fire actually damaged the hardware building across the street where modern shops now reside. Anyway, the building was and is still vacant and is a historic building in Redwood City.
