Daily Health Checks

Daily Health Checks - IT for Growing BusinessesThe problem with starting and growing your own business is that you’ve got a thousand-and-one things to be thinking about and if your IT equipment isn’t spitting out errors every few seconds you probably don’t give it a second thought.

But what happens if you’re in the middle of that important proposal or contract that you’ve been working on for weeks and all of a sudden your laptop sticks its feet in the air.

You could always try turning it off and on again, but by this time it could be too late and you’ve lost hours of work.

Even worse, your hard disk might have failed and the computer won’t reboot again.  Now what?

Well… you could call out your IT guys, but that’s going to cost – and will likely take some time to resolve.

As with most things, prevention is better than cure.  if you’d been warned a couple of days ago that your hard disk was close to failure you’d have time to save your work somewhere safe, get the issue resolved and still get that proposal away on time.

So, how about your Windows Updates?  Are you up-to-date with all those critical Microsoft updates?  Is your Adobe reader up to-date with it’s critical updates?  Even if your machine is up-to-date, are your staff keeping their machines up-to-date?

How about your antivirus?  Is that up-to-date?

It’s surely better to be warned that an issue may occur than to be in the middle of that proposal when disaster strikes!

There’s a lot to think about to keep your PC, Mac or laptop healthy and secure – and a good place to start is to know what needs doing, what is likely to fail soon and not having to lift a finger to find out.

Hill Data Systems – IT for Growing Businesses.

The obligatory first post

Well this is a new venture for me.  I’m not sure I know what to write.  

But I guess everyone starts their first blog post with something like that.

If I waited until I managed to think of something profound I’d never get this thing started, so here is a very un-profound first entry.

I’ll try to blog as often as possible and it will probably be about technology, gadgets, software, small business IT services and anything unusual/interesting I come across in the course of my day-to-day pin-ball style journey around all things IT.

I’m not sure if the blog will remain on WordPress.  I’m just trying it out.  At first glance it looks OK for my purposes, but what do I know?  This is, after all, my first blog post.

Hopefully you – or someone out there – will find this interesting.  Or diverting.  Or something.
