When an email is not what it seems

Written by Dean Calvert

It’s becoming more and more dangerous to take things at face value these days. People, photos on menus of food for sale, even some cars – we find ourselves needing to do more homework before taking the plunge and risk getting suckered in.

Hello and welcome to our February 2014 newsletter

Happy (belated) new year to you – it’s hard to believe we’re already half way through February and thinking about March!

Those readers living in Adelaide will know we’ve survived some incredibly hot weather over the last few weeks. Something that often gets forgotten about, whilst we’re busy keeping family members and pets cool, is how the heat can affect our technology.

Hello and welcome to our December 2013 newsletter

‘tis the season to be jolly…

About jolly time we had some nice summer weather
About jolly time we get to enjoy some time off
Jolly sure we have an end of year backup process
Jolly certain we have power protection for sensitive equipment that could be affected by power spikes or outages
Jolly careful we have adequate physical security measures in place, particularly if the office is going to be unattended for extended periods of time
Jolly well ready to get plans in place for 2014
Jolly sick of the overuse of the word “jolly”!

But in all seriousness, this is a time to both unwind and relax as well as being extra careful we have the right protection measure in place.

Hello and welcome to our November 2013 newsletter

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here – it seems like only a few weeks ago we were welcoming you to 2013! It’s been a big year for us so far, and there’s still time to achieve more.

So what’s been happening and what do you need to be aware of?

The clock is ticking! April 8, 2014 marks the day Microsoft stops all support for Windows XP and Office 2003. This means that following this date there will no longer be any updates or patches released.

Hello and welcome to our May 2013 newsletter

The cold winds of winter have started to blow and with it comes the reminder that the end of financial year “silly season” is almost upon us. This means ensuring budgets have been set for the new year ahead, projects are being closed off (where possible), and that you’re thinking about making sure you have decent end of period backups.

Hello and welcome to our first newsletter of 2013.

We trust you enjoyed some time off over the Christmas/New Year period and had opportunity to both reflect on 2012 and look forward to the year ahead.

We are well and truly back into the swing of things with many exciting plans for this year. We have been continuing to build our technical services team with 7 full-time technicians at the time of this newsletter and another body due to join us shortly.
