I just want to say thank you to Chester for always being cheerful and willing to help with any issue I may be having with our computer lab, self checkout or my desktop system itself. Yesterday was another example of an issue arising and Chester sticking with it until he had a solution and fixed it. Our IT staff are amazing and I don't know what we would do without them...thank you again for your help (and by help I mean I stepped aside while you fixed the problem).
