Yep, that’s us, Dave & Debbie Daniels! We started INTERNETworks in 1993. That’s a LONG time ago in Internet years. We tell everyone that we founded the Internet along with Al Gore! Well, believe what you want….we’ve been around a long time.
When we started INTERNETworks, we started as an ISP, offering dial-up service to just get online. We used to have people come by our office to pick up their starter disk and they would ask us if we would be available when their child got home from school to walk them through setting up their access! Things have come a long way…but it still seems like those kids know more than we do about the Internet and computers, as a whole! In fact, our very first customer was a 13-year old boy from Bixby. We still have that 1st dollar from him…just don’t know what happened to all the other money we have made over the years!
Dave is the techy, nerdy programmer part of us and Debbie is the creative, organizer, interpreter arm of the business. Many times, when we meet with customers, Dave starts talking his “techy'” talk and Debbie has to interpret what he’s saying to the customer. We work well together…as long has he works in one office and she works in another! We have two entirely different working styles…fast and slow! He is the more methodical thinker and works at a slower pace. She works fast and furious and gets the stuff done quickly for the customers. Customers think that there is something wrong with her if she doesn’t get their updates done in about 5 minutes after sending them to her! Well, she’s not THAT quick…but she’s quick! Dave says she can talk on the phone, watch TV and work on a website at the same time! She says that’s just the difference between men and women!!!
OK, you can tell that we aren’t spring chicks! That picture is on our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We’ve been around awhile and just in case you’re wondering, we’ll be around for a lot longer. We’ve only had one customer ask us what would happen to their hosting and their website design if something happened to us during the process. You know who you are, Fred! We had to give him a written document stating who would be in charge if we got hit by a Mac truck during his design process! We do have one son out of our 4 kids who can “take over”, if necessary. He is a whiz kid (he’s really not a kid anymore – 34) at computers and programming and anything Internet! Not sure he really WANTS to take over our business, but he’s agreed to if it was an emergency. So, relax, we’ve got you covered!
You will find us very easy to work with. We truly care about our customers and we WILL take care of you. We don’t repair computers (at least, none but our own), but we will repair your website. We don’t provide Internet access any longer…bigger fish have taken over that area of this business! (Thank goodness!) We can fix your broken website or design you a new one. We’ve done just about everything you can imagine when it comes to the web and we’ve dealt with just about every kind of business. When people start sharing with us their “new” idea, you’ll be surprised. We’ve probably already heard that idea before. Some ideas make it and some don’t, but you’ll never know unless you try. So, give us a try and we’ll help you be successful on the Internet!
