Uncategorized
The leaves are changing, we've got pumpkin spice everything and I'm already starting to see Christmas commercials on television.  It's hard to believe, but we're officially back in the holiday season.  We are already starting to schedule projects around the holidays so it seemed like a good idea to go ahead and post our official holiday schedule.  As always, we will have on-call personnel available in the event of emergencies and will post additional reminders as the holidays get closer.   Thanksgiving Closed Thursday, 23 November and Friday, 24 November.  Returning to normal business hours on Monday, 27 November.

We will be watching the path of the storm closely and will be announcing any changes to our normal business hours here and posting those changes to our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  If we do have to close the shop, we will be monitoring the incoming support requests closely and responding as conditions allow. With the storm bearing down, now would be a good time to confirm that all of your unnecessary electronic equipment is powered off and disconnected (in the event of flooding, this will give the equipment the best chance of surviving) and that any mission critical equipment is connected to at least surge protection or ideally backup battery…
