Thank you, M.
Well then where were you when my computer's keyboard locked up? I'm holding you personally responsible. Hehehe.
Anyhow (all kidding aside), there is no license required for general computer tech support. However, if you are operating under any other name than the name of the corporation, let me know. For example, if you have "Tech ABC, LLC," but you operate under "Happy Tech World."
