Great question from a client today and intelligent feedback worth your knowing ...

Client Question: "A friend received an email from what appeared to be me but the email address was different so they sent me an email asking if it was from me. It wasn't. In other words it looked like Joe Smith (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). That's not my email address and I want to know how I can stop this and how it happened."

Answer from BIT Engineer: "It cannot be stopped any more than a person walking into a bar and saying "Hi, my name is Joe Smith". How does it happen? Easy. Any of the hundreds of people you have ever emailed got infected with a virus/malware that pulled their contact list, which you were a part of. Now that malware has the name of a real live person that it can now use and send email ‘as’ to every one else on that particular contact list."

Saving money has always been one of the drivers for considering outsourcing, but it usually fell behind more strategic motivations, such as focusing on core competencies or freeing internal staff for other initiatives. However, in these tighter economic times, more companies are turning to outsourcing as a means to reduce and control IT costs.

Is it possible to save money through outsourcing? Of course! Are you guaranteed to save money if you outsource? Of course not! Can you save money by copying the methods used by outsourcers within your organization (insourcing)? Maybe, maybe not!

Congratulations! You now own a new PC. But keep your old computer accessible for a short period of time to assure everything you needed from the old PC is on the new PC.

First, make a list of all the programs on your current PC that you want on the new one. If you bought those programs in physical form, find the discs. If you downloaded them, you can download them again. Make sure you have all of your license numbers, user names and passwords.
