‘Tis the season to stay safe online!

Quick Tip: Be wary and alert while shopping online.

Why: It's Holiday Season for the bad guys too, but not the way you might think. Cybercriminals go into scam-overdrive mode and plan on getting rich with your money. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are known for being the busiest online shopping days, but we bet you still have a lot of online shopping left to do.

Cathy’s Corner – December 2020

As we wrap up the year, I believe that we’ll all be “talking 2020” for many days to come. When we launched into 2020 with its connotations of clear vision, who could have predicted the year that would unfold? For IT Radix, the year started with a big push to help our clients upgrade or replace not only Windows 7 PCs but also Windows 2008 Servers, which meant literally hundreds of computers and hours of effort.

I came to IT Radix with a B.S. in Management Information Systems (MIS) from St. Francis University in western Pennsylvania and 10 years of experience supporting technology. Most recently, I worked as an IT Field Technician for Micrologic. In this role, I set up and supported customers using the company’s proprietary software and assisted them with their daily/monthly reports.

Warning! Danger Will Robinson!

Some may remember Lost in Space, a TV show from the late 1960s. The Robinson family set off to colonize space, and suddenly were thrown off course, stranded in a perilous environment, light years from their desired destination. Luckily, “Robot” would alert the young Robinson boy to hazards by shouting “Danger Will Robinson!”

No one has a safety robot or even a map or GPS device to facilitate safe travels over the world wide web.

Electronic Waste Recycling Benefits

In November we are reminded to be thankful. At IT Radix, we’re thankful for our planet and feel it’s important for everyone to find ways to give back to it. One way you can contribute is by recycling your electronic waste. Here are a few e-waste recycling benefits:

Machines can be recycled and used for new parts, eliminating the need for mining for materials such as copper, aluminum, and steel.

What You Don’t See

We have all heard the question: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, did it really happen?" That thought raises philosophical issues regarding our powers of observation and perception. When each of us are in our “me” centered world, we sometimes think that if we did not see or hear something, then it was not important, or worse that it did not happen.

"As we sail through life, don't avoid rough waters, sail on because calm waters won't make a skillful sailor.” (Unknown)
 
I have this quote tucked away in a notebook that I regularly use—being the geek that I am, it’s in OneNote (a favorite app), but I digress… As someone who grew up sailing on the waters of North Carolina, it has always struck home for me.
