04/06/2017 | Filed under: Thoughts on IT| Permalink

Recently I had to sign up for yet another account online, something most of us do dozens of times a year. I was shown the below animation as I chose my password and thought the feedback was excellent from a user standpoint. You want your password to be good, because you want to be happy! You, (or at least I) am happy when my information is secure and I don’t have to worry about something happening to my account and someone accessing my private and valuable information.

So how do you make &ldquo...

If you talk to our staff for any length of time, I think you’ll find that most of them have at least two obsessions in common, an obsession with good business practices and an obsession with gadgets of all kinds. The more I thought about it, the more I thought that the same kind of thinking that goes into good gadget selection can also apply to business.

Here are two of my (and my wife’s) favorite gadgets.

The Classic KitchenAid Standing Mixer.

Just replace the modem they said… (Computer Horror Stories: Part 4)

One of our clients had a problem with a leading network supplier. When they notified the vendor that they had a problem they were told that a modem needed replacement. They were paying for 26mbps speed but the modem issue had reduced that to 1 mbps. As you can imagine everything was grinding to a halt!

So the vendor came out to replace the modem and apparently everything according to them was working fine. BUT guess what? Now their internet didn’t work at...
