We’ve been getting a large number of calls and emails today about a new type of spam that’s been hitting our customers’ mailboxes since the three-day weekend.

Resetting a Samsung Behold 2 Android phone

I recently had to help a customer perform a hard reset on his Samsung Behold 2 (Android OS) device and thought I’d share how we did it.   If you’re wanting to do a soft reset (the CTRL-ALT-DEL equivalent for a Windows PC) , you can do the following: Tap the Widget Bar and then […]

Enabling Aero Peek for Firefox

I’m a huge fan of Firefox.  It’s far and away my browser of choice, and version 3.6 was just released this week.  If you’re running Windows 7 (and you should be, it’s everything that Vista should have been and more), you’re probably familiar with Aero Peek: It gives you the ability to mouse over the […]

Windows Live Mail saved me a TON of work!

We run into issues for our mail servers, it’s part and parcel with the job and the issues generally aren’t huge, but they can often be time consuming.
