The year was 1982. The Computing Center was just over four years old. The IBM PC was released the summer before and we were still trying to figure out whether these "new fangled" micro-computers might have a place in business.
We owned a DEC PDP11/34 mini computer and had written a full-service payroll processing program for it the previous year. We collected weekly and bi-weekly timesheets from our clients, keyed in the payroll information, printed checks, and delivered the completed reports and employee checks back the next business day. This part of our business was growing and we needed someone to work "the evening" shift to process the days payroll that had come in. Velma German joined our staff as our second full-time outside employee and has been with us ever since!
In July, Lisa D'Annibale, The Computing Center's senior programmer and web mistress was featured in an Ithaca Journal article and video - "Life in Tompkins: SPCA of Tompkins uses foster homes to save lives". Lisa has been fostering dogs for the SPCA for over eleven years.

In addition, The Computing Center is proud to be a Silver Sponsor for the SPCA of Tompkins County 2013 March for the Animals this September!
The March for the Animals is the SPCA's biggest fundraising event of the year. The money raised goes towards the medical care of the nearly 3,000 animals who pass through their doors every year!
In 2001 the SPCA of Tompkins County became the first "no-kill" open admission shelter in the country and has been committed to saving the lives of every adoptable animal ever since.
The March for the Aniimals will be held on
September 28, 2013
