Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. is a small business with little less than 50 people in our staff. When we needed a software to manage our business activities with our clients (CRM), we could not find anything and we did not want to pay anything. So we created our own CRM software to manage customer data and we called it PILOT.
We made this software free for you all to use. Yes, it is free. No string attached. Just visit following site and sign up.
I purchased two new 1080 monitors on Amazon and set them up on my desk today. Compared to what I had, they are amazingly light and thin with very thin edges. They can also be tilted as you can see on the final picture.
Internet service is getting faster and cheaper ... but is it now fast and affordable enough to be used as your primary backup system? Backing up files to a USB external drive is different. By using USB 2.0, you can transfer files up to 480 Mbps - I will explain.
Transfer speed is measured in Mbps (Megabits per second). Using a 1 Mbps connection, you can send 125 kilobytes every second. This is not fast enough to receive streaming video in standard resolution. To receive HD (1080p) video streaming, you should have a 20 Mbps connection.
One 2 hour / 1 GB movie uploaded using a 5 Mbps broadband connection can take about 20 minutes or 1.5 hours with 1 Mbps speed. Given that a terabyte has 1,048,576 megabytes, if you could achieve the theoretical 60 Mbps transfer, you could do it in slightly over 4 hours and 45 minutes.
I am designing a system that allows people to back up a huge amount of data for safe storage. The key to this is speed and ease-of-use. The first step is to create a testing method for the file transfer rate. It is a challenging but interesting problem to solve.

Once upon a time there was a big gap between generations when it came to understanding digital technologies. It was called the “Digital Divide”. Since then, it appears that the division has shrunk. The fact is, the younger generation has grown older with more tech knowledge and with technologies becoming easier to use. So the gap seems to be smaller, but the fact is, you do not need to know as much about the tech anymore.
It is like when cars moved from manual transmission to automatic. It appeared that people were driving better, but in reality cars just became a whole lot easier to drive. Now cars are moving toward self driving... does that mean people are driving better? No, it just means that people are not in charge anymore. Instead of people using technology, people will become passengers.
When I design software and services, I want to make sure we can do as much as we can to free up your time but I always remember who is ultimately in charge. We try to make sure you make no mistakes but that you are free to try out anything. At the same time, when you become stuck, our customer support, and entire company for that matter, is behind you to help you get unstuck from any situation.
PSPinc is just releasing a new Web and Email Hosting Platform called YourHost Neo. This is like a 5 speed manual muscle car - how you drive it is up to you. It is pure muscle and no fat, I wish I could say that about myself.
When you sit in your car and wiggle the steering wheel, there are a few degrees of movement that do not affect the direction of the wheels. This is called "Play". Without this, your car will react to every movement and send too much information from your wheel to your steering wheel. Thus, the car will be very difficult or sensitive to drive.
I believe the same thing applies to your business. You can try to control everything, which will make your management style very strict and sensitive. People need some amount of "Play" in their work. Though, as with your car, too much and things will easily become uncontrollable. There is a need for some "Play" but not too much.
As a Manager, you need to know how much "Play" you wish to have as it pertains to your management style. Never allow too much "Play" in your steering, it's all about having the right amount. Do you agree?
