TEST Recently I had a customer call me about a Windows 2003 Small Business Server that they did not have any administrator account passwords for. When I got a chance to look at the machine, I discovered not only is the bios password protected, but the password for the local computer account and the domain [...]

You want to grow your business and you want it to run smoothly. We are your partner in ensuring your business infrastructure runs smoothly, even if you run your business from home.
I received an email from a colleague today that once again brought the potential danger of email communication and the widespread availability of information front-and-center. I consider this person to be reasonably intelligent, like most of the people I receive these sorts of emails from. I am never sure what the immediate thought is – [...]
Fall back is a great time of year. It gets dark sooner, cooler weather has set in and everyone is looking forward to the holiday season. Since we have to go around the house changing clocks anyway, the International Association of Fire Chiefs promotes it’s “Change your clock, change your battery” campaign. You can find [...]
If you are like many folks, procrastinating in your holiday shopping is as much of a tradition as pumpkin pie or a tree. In the past, we had to fight for parking, bundle-up and hope the store we chose first had almost everything we needed. Thankfully, most of us no longer live in that world. [...]
Everyone talks about our fast-paced lives and how it’s becoming increasingly hard to make time for things. I have a few things to say about that, but for the purposes of this post, let’s address one of the reasons it’s hard to ‘make time’ for things – you have to work with someone else’s schedule. [...]
When it seems the whole world has gone tech-crazy. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Unless your cellphone antenna is held on by scotch tape or your TV picture is somehow compromised, it’s a good bet you don’t really need a change. Unlike upgrades of old, like moving from VCR tapes to DVD’s, for [...]
I received quite a few comments about my first post regarding preparing for our favorite non-season, and several requests for more information. Since none of you were terribly specific, I had to go out on a limb and guess – what else can I cover? And then, thanks in part to someone in a networking [...]
Ecolife Apparel contracted with iPhactory and created an iPhone app that will do a lot more good than most. Called iPhorest, the app lets you plant a virtual tree. Peaceful, right? The good news is, for every virtual tree you plant, The Conservation Fund will plant a real one. Even better – they are using [...]
No, I’m not talking about getting ADHD from video games or needing glasses from over-exposure to bright or flickering monitors. I’m talking about being a good old-fashioned klutz. Now, I have no room to talk because I run into the corners of walls and trip over rugs! But, that’s another story. For most of us, [...]
We tend to be a little complacent around here when we start seeing the tracking maps hit the stores and the sales on batteries, radios, water and other supplies grace our favorite stores’ circular. Florida as a whole can go for several years without having an actual named storm make landfall, and for us here [...]
From the short-lived like 8-tracks and Laserdisc, to what we thought would be old standby’s forever like VHS and CD, we’ve all been down the road of upgrade-and-replace sometimes several-times over. Being in my thirties, I’ve had to upgrade my records to cassette tapes, and then to CD’s and then to MP3’s. My movies have [...]
