What is Windows 10?
There is much talk about Windows 10 that Microsoft is currently working on. After the fiasco called Windows 8, businesses especially have been waiting with aging systems for the next OS. Windows 10 will probably be released sometime late this year. Current technical review builds show some promising improvements in the Microsoft OS. The best way I can describe it is a merging of Windows 7 and Windows 8 with a few extra features thrown in.
All of our website hosting comes with unlimited email accounts and anti-spam applications implemented on the email server. These applications do a decent job of weeding out the spam while delivering your good email. For clients who want an even more robust anti-spam solution, we can configure Trend Micro's Hosted Email Security to catch even more spam. If you want us to configure and manage this solution, there will be a yearly charge of $49 per email address.
I'm back in the States from my mission trip in Nicaragua. I apologize to all who had issues with your web sites or email while I was gone. The company that provides the servers for my hosting packages decided to move all of my clients to a new, faster, better, server the morning I was scheduled to leave. They did not tell me they were going to do this. I believe most of the issues have been taken care of by now, but there are still a few issues I'm working on. I'll again be having serious discussions with this company for not telling me ahead of time what they were going to do.
I will be in Nicaragua on a mission trip from July 22nd through July 29th. (see www.helpingnicaragua.org for more information about our mission trips.) If you have a pressing computer problem that cannot wait until I get back, you can call Tim Arrowood at 231-0809.
When your computer is sick, it never hurts to get a cat scan. :-)
The first line of defense in the war against computer viruses is simply to be alert when opening your email. Most of today's viruses are transmitted via emails that appear to come from legitimate sources. If you are not expecting a package from UPS, don't open that UPS attachment giving you instructions on how to get your package that could not be delivered. (UPS will hang a tag on your door if you are not at home.)
