Welcome to our October newsletter. I hope you all had a great long weekend.

As the warmer weather is now upon us, giving your computers an internal dust cleanout is a must. Over time dust builds up within computers which puts extra strain and heat on the components which can cause them to fail quicker. Contact us now to arrange a clean out before its too late.

This month we are lucky to have Chris Gregory write a few blog articles for us (see below). Chris is the NBN Local Manager for SA/NT and in the articles he talks about the NBN and how it will benefit your business.

As part of the SA Technology Collective we will be exhibiting later this month at the Southern Business Connections Business Expo. It will be held at the Tonsley TAFE Campus on October 25th between 2PM and 7PM. Entry is free (along with free drinks and a free sausage sizzle!) and you will be able to connect with quite a number of southern based businesses and also hear from guest speaker Wayne Phillips (ex Australian Cricketer). Please come along and say hello.

If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding the newsletters please let me know as it is much appreciated.
