Cloud Apps

No doubt you’ve heard buzz about “The Cloud” by now. If the term seems somewhat vague – well, it is. W hat does it mean, and why should you care? “The cloud” refers to resources that you access over the Internet. These resources are off-site. Often, people think that “moving to the cloud” means that […]

Anti-Virus Ratings

I am often asked about Anti-Virus Ratings… what is the best anti-virus / anti-malware program for home use? I have to say, none of them really impress me.  Nonetheless, some are better than others.  Here is a guide from PC Magazine.  Note that the anti-virus ratings change every year, and the best product this year […]

Memorial Day

Monday morning is Dousman’s Memorial Day service. The American Legion always does a great job making this a solemn, respectful event. I know everyone is busy this weekend – I am too – but take a moment and remember. Maybe buy a poppy or two from the elderly gentleman outside the grocery store. And, of […]

A New Domain Name

I’m very happy for one of my clients. This week, we made MAJOR improvements in their “web presence”. This company’s domain was registered by AT&T with an Australian company and the web site was hosted by AT&T Yahoo. One of their email addresses NEARLY matched their domain name, except the dash was in a different […]

Back To School

Yes, like Rodney Dangerfield, I’m back to school.  When you’re an IT guy, school never really ends. It doesn’t matter if you get a degree in computer science and have a 4.0 GPA – In about 10 years, much of what you’ve learned will be outdated. I should have my Cisco certification in just over a year. […]

Backup Exec upgrade available – often free (if you already paid for it!)

Backup Exec 2012 Symantec has released  Backup Exec 2012, the latest version of their industry-leading data backup solution. The new version has a number of interesting features, but the one that interests me the most is “P2V Recovery”.  That stands for “physical to virtual”.  This means your entire server can be restored as a “virtual […]

Solid State Drives

One of the most common hardware failures is the hard drive. Unfortunately, when the hard drive fails, it can mean that ALL of your data is gone. There are ways to get some or all of the data back, but they’re VERY expensive. Hard drives can also limit performance. Reading data from a hard drive […]

Mullarky. What’s In a Name?

Yes, my name is Mullarky, and yes, I’m familiar with the expression “Full of Mularkey”. So what’s up with the name anyway? Well, it’s an Irish name, though not a popular one. If you go to Irish Fest and they’re selling things with Irish surnames, you won’t find Mullarky. You may find Malarkey, and even that […]

Springtime!

In Springtime, a young man’s fancy turns to…. Drag Racing! I’m one of those annoying people who actually like snow. I like to snowmobile and downhill ski. This winter was very disappointing. Even so, I’m loving our early Spring weather. My friends and I are using Springtime to get our cars ready for summer. We’re […]
