For anyone that has ever wondered, TDATS stands for Tim Deater Advanced Technology Support. It is a name I came up with many years ago while working on some website development with Jessica Brooks, and it just stuck. She helped me design the logo that I have used ever since. Yes, it is similar to NCATS, Newaygo County Advanced Technology Services, where I work. NCATS is the IT division of the NC RESA, also known as the Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency.
