Hi *|FNAME|*,

Our thoughts are with everyone across our nation who has been affected by the current bushfires. If you or anyone you know has been effected by the fires and require IT assistance please let us know and we can work out some way of helping.

At the end of last year we brought Ben onboard as a new technician. As well as general IT support, Ben is a registered data cabler, so we can now do work on phone and data cabling. This includes the NBN (FTTN, FTTC, FTTB), wireless network infrastructure and running new cabling inside business premises. Let me know if you need any sort of cabling work and we can provide a free quote.

February 11th is Safer Internet Day. The aim is to raise awareness about the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet for our community. More information is below.

Some of the new work we will be doing this month includes:

  • travelling all over Adelaide performing an IT system audit for a large financial organisation.
  • upgrading routers across the Adelaide stores for 2 other national companies.
  • installing new media players at a large fast food outlet.

So if you have anything coming up please let us know ASAP so we can lock times and dates in.

Stay cool and catch you all next month.

Safer Internet Day

On Tuesday 11 February 2020, DP Computing is pleased to be supporting the work of Australia’s eSafety Commissioner by spreading online safety messages and promoting the positive use of digital technology.

Safer Internet Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the role we can all play in creating a better and safer internet for our community.

Celebrated in over 150 countries, the Safer Internet Day theme is: ‘Together for a better internet’. We are encouraging all Australians to start the chat to help improve online safety within their communities, and make every day a Safer Internet Day.

This year we are supporting Safer Internet Day by helping promote safe online usage on our social media chanels and newsletter via the hashtags #SID2020 #SIDesafety and we encourage you to join in!

Help spread the word and raise awareness. The first step to a better internet is to talk about the potential risks and ways to avoid them. You can host a Safer Internet Day activity or simply start a conversation in your community about coming ‘together for a better internet’.

Out and About in January

Here are some of our adventures from last month:

  • We are still upgrading a lot of clients from older Windows 7 machines to new Windows 10 computers. We have even installed a few fanless systems that are designed to work in dusty areas.
  • An email migration to Office365 for a client in North Adelaide. We will be migrating their local file server to SharePoint Online shortly.
  • Stefan had some "fun" doing some Cisco work for a client at the Department of Defence in Edinburgh. He couldn't take any sort of electronic devices into the building
  • Setting up a new computer and networking equipment for a new startup company.
  • Ben performed an IT audit at a mining site in Adelaide's south.
