The countdown begins for Windows 7 users

The countdown begins for Windows 7 users

As the saying goes: Out with the old, in with the new. That’s exactly what Microsoft is encouraging Windows 7 users to do as soon as possible.

New Year, new web site, new digs, new people, new services…

January 5th, 2017

Happy…what, 2017?  Sheesh.  Talk about a year.  Let’s see.  We had an election that was…well, different.  In that election, we had an epic failure of big data (which in some ways is the most interesting, and most ignored, outcome).  Cleveland had by most accounts a good year, considering the Cavs (expected), Indians (not expected), and ummm…those football guys.
