Gmail Offline - How To Setup

Gmail and Chrome users now have the full benefits of offline mail with the Gmail Offline App. Download your mail from the last week, two weeks or month. Of course it is Beta but the whole world is beta. !!

Most smartphones have a flight mode so ironically flying is now a great time to catch up on all old mail that has accumulated.

For power users, if you are logged in just go direct to the Chrome apps store at this link;-

What Happens in an Internet Minute

IBM have produced a very interesting infographic detailing what happens in an internet minute;- as we all know a month is a long time in this business ;-)  The key thrust of the story from Intel and CircleID  is that government are a long way behind on all fronts... what is new !!  a few key numbers;-

  • 639,800 gb of global IP data transfer
  • 204 million emails sent
  • $83,000 in sales
  • 1,300 new mobile users

Get with the programme people, get Google Apps :-)

NYR's - Own Your Domain...

New Year Resolutions - Own Your Domain (at least)

We are constantly being asked to transfer in domain for clients and always come up against the same problem, the Owner is not You !!!

There are a number of elements to a domain record;-
  • the Owner
  • the Admin Contact or Admin-C
  • the Technical Contact or Tech-C
  • the Billing contact or Billing-C

the nameservers that actually direct your traffic to a specific location perhaps defined simply by an IP or an actual domain name.

Happy New Year !!

... to all our customers and visitors! 

Murphy's Law now redundant ?

Electronic devices and laptops in particular are Murphy magnets, they attract disaster. !!

Perhaps the probability of that beer with the loose cap being knocked over, beside your laptop by the cat just when you are 90% finished Mondays special presentation should be a very very very big number best calculated using a Drake Equation derivative...

N = R^{\ast} \cdot f_p \cdot n_e \cdot f_{\ell} \cdot f_i \cdot f_c \cdot L \!

Think again !!

Thankfully Google have worked and slaved to produce a simple formula

[Solution = Chrome book + Google Apps :-) !!!
