Don’t Forget to Unplug for the Holidays

Don't forget to unplugLet’s be honest.

As we get older, the holidays can be as much of a source for stress as they are about being with family, general merriment and watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on repeat.

Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, there’s a lot to be done. Planning where you’re going to be; syncing up your schedule with family and friends; deciding who’s preparing what food; brainstorming, finding and purchasing presents; readying the house for visitors; setting up decorations; restocking the, now very essential, liquor supply, etc.

And, all the while, there’s that one little nagging detail: your job. You may be off work on the actual holiday, but everything that leads up to and follows that date competes for attention with your good ol’ 9-5.

Managed Sitecore Hosting Now Available at Fpweb.net

Fpweb.net adds Sitecore to their SharePoint World

Fpweb.net PowerspinIn 1999, Fpweb.net entered the SharePoint Hosting world. By ourselves. Because no one else was doing it.

Success was built off a simple concept: Clients can’t always handle the IT burden that complicated platforms produce. Most complicated environments need to be implemented by specialists. Those specialists are then needed to host and manage the infrastructure, ensuring the client has enterprise-grade security, performance and availability. And, of course, support (and not the kind of support where you sit around waiting for help for hours).

The business model was simple: Provide solid customer care, a powerful product, predictable payment plans and 24/7 rapid support that customers can depend on.

 

Avoid Technology Overload (If You Can)

A middle aged women’s thoughts on technology overload

too much technology

From Caliber magazine

I made some observations over the weekend as to my own personal use of technology. My conclusions merit the need to unplug a little bit more, but this proves to be more than a feeble challenge in a society that has adopted the “always available” mentality.

Nowadays, when you send a text, an immediate response is expected. If you send an email, responding within the day is acceptable. When you leave a voicemail, a call is expected within the day. Or do you just return a call with a text?

Yes, technology overload is here and whether or not that’s a bad thing is really up to how you handle it.
