Its Friday, so let's have a little fun today. Remember back in the day this little device called a pager. A little black box that would display a number that you had to call back, or if you were really fancy an actual message. I believe most messages were limited to 80 characters (so if you thought twitter was difficult...). You can always check out the clip below from Tron Legacy if you can't remember the ever famous pager. At least we aren't talking about the Motorola Flip Phones or better yet the infamous "Bag Phone." But I digress . . .

Back in January of 2009 I wrote an article about Safe Password Management with KeePass. While this article is still relevant today, I also wanted to point out a recent article from Information Week showing KeePass in the top 10 password managers. Check out the article at: http://www.informationweek.com/security/client/10-top-password-managers/240153906?pgno=8.
What password manager do you use? If you aren't using a Password Manager, give us a call and we can help you select the right tool for the job.

Yesterday I had a conversation with one of our clients who indicated that they had apparently had an issue with a desktop that they had purchased. Turns out they had to order a new power supply. Unfortunately, the system in question was under warranty and yet they paid $120 to get the part shipped to them next day for replacement. The reason is that they (both the client and the manufacturer) did not check the warranty status on the system prior to ordering parts. System warranties can save you money, especially considering that they paid $87 for the three year NBD warranty that was in place and yet purchased $120 worth of parts that they didn't need to purchase. So lesson learned for them was to call WavesCo first so we can double check the service st

One of the last things we want to derail us is a computer network problem. As your company grows, the consequences of an outage increase dramatically. That’s why it’s important to have the right tools in place to manage your networks, and for those with Cisco products it can be as easy as having Cisco SMARTnet Service.
