Text Box: TIPS - GPS Technology

Backup Strategies  (all computers will fail at one time or another!)

Backup frequently: Depending on how critical your data is, you should backup daily, weekly or at least twice a month.

Test your backups : Every few months do a backup and recovery test to see if your backups are really working.

Update your backup procedures: As your information grows your backup procedures should be updated to include all these new directories.

Keep one backup off-site: In the worst case scenario this is a life saver.

Don’t rely on automated procedures: Unless the procedure reports to you the backup results via some mechanism, perform the backup yourself to ensure that the backup completed successfully.

Use generic technology: As you probably have noticed equipment becomes obsolete very quickly in IT, don't’ rely on manufacturers that use proprietary technology that will either disappear or become outdated in a couple of years.

Did you Know ?

GPS is a technology that is revolutionizing personal travel; these devices know exactly where you are and will give you street by street directions to your destination.

Most GPS’s have full street maps of North America and Europe, a voice that announces directions and  a service that locates nearby points of interest such as: banks, gas stations, parks, hotels, restaurants etc.  Most are portable and include additional features such as an MP3 player, language translators, unit conversion.

Most people have not yet used or purchase a GPS because:

a) Believe they are too difficult to use
b) Don’t think that they really work
c)  Think that they are too expensive

The fact is that it will take you probably less than 2 hours to learn how to use one, prices are dropping and they do work, so well in fact that you will wonder how you ever did without one.
