The Friend of a Friend I.T. Situation

July 29, 2011

I need to emphasize that as a business owner and an information technology person the friend situation is always brutal. It never seems to matter how good your intentions are – someone always seems to get hurt.  But when I am asked to do something for a friend I still do my best.  Some get […]

July 29, 2011

Last week, I think on Thursday after I had dropped a big email, I was looking for an more permanent solution.  The issue we had with credit cards that were taking 80 seconds to process was old. The stand alone card machine on the counter was working fine but the owner wanted the POS to work.  I had […]
