Hope you are all doing well, October was a busy month for us and it flew by real fast. I'm afraid that if I blink it will be Christmas!

Last week, Chris started with us as for some work experience. Please say hi and make him feel welcome if you see him around.

Sorry for keeping on harping about this but as it is getting closer to the end of the year, remember to upgrade your Windows 7 machines before January 2020. See our website here for more details on what this entails.

The SA Technology Collective regular "Social Drinks" is on Wednesday the 20th of November at the Woodcroft Tavern. Drop in anytime between 4PM and 6PM for a relaxed chat with other business owners in a casual environment.

I hope you enjoy the articles below and catch you all next month.

Out and About in October

Last month we took on some new clients and had some "fun" with a local email server down and also another client losing their main Internet connection (it pays to have a backup Internet connection). Some of our other adventures included:

  • Stefan and David attended the SMBiT Professionals annual conference. This year it was held in Adelaide and they both met up with some of our interstate partners and vendors along with learning a lot of new information relating to security, cloud and on premise based technology.
  • We helped setup and tear down a temporary network of over 150 devices for a travel expo at the Adelaide Show Grounds.
  • Dave installed some media players and displays for a large financial client in the Adelaide CBD.
  • For the same client Shane and Stefan have been upgrading a lot of their systems in a variety of locations right across Adelaide and in some nearby country towns.
  • Stefan was also out at Murray Bridge doing some work.
