Hi *|FNAME|*,

Welcome our August newsletter. Adelaide has come out of lockdown but other parts of the country are still in various stages of lockdown If you are still in lockdown and need assistance in getting setup to work from home of are having other issues please let me know. I'm now fully vaccinated against COVID and some of the other techs have had their first injection and the others are awaiting to qualify to get their jabs.

Windows 11 is coming at the end of the year, check out our blog article below for more information.

Some of you may have seen a familiar face with Paul joining us as a senior technician. Paul used to work for me approx 10 years ago before he made the move to Brisbane. Up in Brisbane he worked for a few IT providers and data centres. He is now back in Adelaide and has brought back a wealth of experience with servers, networking and cloud technology.

If you would like to catch up to discuss your IT needs or just for a chat, please let me know via phone (0412 973 503) or email (david@dpcomputing.com.au).

Cheers,
David Perkovic - david@dpcomputing.com.au

Out and About

With lockdown's happening we haven't been out of the office too much but some highlights from July include:

  • Techs have been busy installing and configuring a large Ubiquiti Unifi wireless network at a location in the south of Adelaide.
  • David, Paul and Stefan virtually attended a presentation on Starlink. Starlink is one of Elon's Musk's companies and aims to provide fast internet speeds to most locations on earth. While it is only in its test stages in Australia it will be a game changer for our country clients and those with poor internet speeds.

In August, David will be visiting some country clients and staff will also be participating is some virtual security training sessions involving M365.

We were going to be installing and setting up a number of headsets for a film festival in Adelaide. Unfortunately the lock down came in and the event was cancelled.
