If all else fails - Read the Manual
You know the techie (or the pseudo-techie) drill: Buy it, rip it out of the box, install it, and use...what? did this...maybe do it this way...huh?...OK, so WHERE's the manual?

Computerific!, was started by me, Sarah E. (Cason) Green, in the early 1980's to provide corporate clients, as well as small businesses and individuals, with office automation and computer training services. I have experience in designing and implementing office automation systems for such clients as American Microsystems, Inc. (over 200 users), Hewlett Packard, Rolm and United Way of Santa Clara County.

I invented the computer character "REK the Computer" to amuse office workers who were computer-phobic and skeptical about that new thing - the computer. By personalizing it, people started to warm up to computers and indeed learned to love them. They no longer feared losing their jobs because they were happily developing skills that would see them into the 21st century. REK is sometimes naughty and sometimes nice. He has a supply of REK-ons that will keep you laughing. Please enjoy!

Oh, and then there’s the name – "R E K". Lacking even a glimmer of artistic ability, I spoke with my son, Kevin, about how I could design the character. Well, his friend Jose Raygoza had just what I needed – talent. Almost as fast as I could come up with a saying, he sat right there and designed the drawing. After we finished a few, I realized we needed a name for our newborn character. We thought and thought but didn’t come up with anything. So, we used our initials, mine (SEG), my son Kevin’s (KCG) and Jose’s (JR). We arranged them and re-arranged them and re-re-arranged them. Then, when we saw "R E K" on the paper – that was it! “REK the Computer.” That’s exactly what my computer users wanted to do – “wreck the computer!” In fact, it was what they were doing anyway albeit not deliberately. …And a Star is Born!

An then there's me, REK's Mom. REK has a lot of different "looks." One minute, he can look like a wordprocessor, the next he can look like the Internet, then he can look like a dynamic game machine. And now that my son, Kevin, is "all growed up," he is actually in the business of "looks." He owns a casting company, ( As a Hollywood Photographer, he told me that I have had the same "look" for the last hundred years. So he scheduled a real-life photo shoot for me for my birthday in March. Take a look: (Have fun clicking and rearranging the pictures.)
