Geekoids.com, LLC was originally a joint venture for Douglas Glatz
and Sean Kamath. It came about in the fall of 2000 when the hosting
company for Doug's original domain (showcats.net) folded, and he
was forced to find new hosting on short notice. Given a choice between
going to the new host recommended by the previous one, or taking
some equipment on hand and starting his own hosting company, Doug
decided that he would strike out on his own, but not alone.
Daunted by some of the technical aspects that he had little experience
with, Doug approached Sean about helping him resolve those issues
at a time when Sean was looking for assistance with some technical
work he was consulting on. A partnership was formed! Sean brought
extensive knowledge of Sun hardware and Unix operating systems to
the table, which has literally transformed the orignal plan of using
Microsoft web and mail platforms into a much more stable (and secure)
blend of Sun and Intel hardware running Linux, Solaris and OpenBSD.
In August of 2000, when the first server was lit off, Geekoids consisted
of two Celeron systems. Since then we have added five Sun systems
to expand our capabilities and the services we provide our customers.
In November of 2004, Doug and Sean lost their day jobs. Times being
tight, we reevaluated our skills and the business model that had
kept Geekoids as a part-time business. After much discussion and
planning, the new storefront opened and Geekoids. com made the transition
from being a hosting business to a full-service computer consulting
In May of 2006, we bid a sad farewell to Sean. While he was here
to help launch the store and get us up on our feet, his true love
remains in the realm of Unix and 'big-iron'. He's been tempted to
move to Calfornia and join the Dreamworks team - and who can blame
him? :) Start looking in the movie credits for his name!
of 2011, Geekoids went through a major restructuring. We will be
concentrating on faster turnaround, friendlier service and competitive

"The two men from Geekoids who've done work for me have been extraordinary! Keith made
housecalls (2) within hours of a reported problem(s). Doug walked me through a problem
earlier today with enormous patience. I keep their business card on a linen board next to my
desk, knowing that whatever happens with my PC, Geekoids are available for the fix."
