These are the 5 Rules for Safe Computing, as recommended by Leo Laporte. The list is by no means complete, but it’s a good place to start. In the end, user behavior is key. You can have all of the security available on the market, but if you’re still not careful, you can still get infected.Details
…This got me thinking about the average customer experience in this sort of situation, and especially how frustrating it could be for those less tech-savvy. There are lot of factors to consider when getting a new hard drive. Brand, price, storage space, older vs newer connectors, purchasing locally vs online, installing the hard drive, backups, and more. In many cases, people sometimes have to bring their computer to the shop to get it installed, which is a hassle.
When clients of Nerds On Site need a new hard drive (or other hardware), they don’t have to worry about any of this. We research options, have a discussion with them, and come to an agreement, then purchase, and install it for them on-site. They can continue to focus on their business.
One of the most disheartening experiences for me is to listen to a client who has just found out their website is broken, and they don’t understand how or why that happened. All the client knows is that their website worked when it was built (usually years ago) but now some aspects of it just…Details
The domain extension for Columbia is .co, and at first glance you might think that is a typo, but it’s not. For years, the dominant domain extension for business on the Internet has been .com, but with the number of possible (short) .com domains all but extinguished, many businesses are waking up to the possibility…Details

Unfortunately most Joomla templates have the footer information buried in some php code. But I’m going to show you the most common area you can find it. This is for relatively advanced users. First step, make sure your template doesn’t let you edit the footer via a module position. Second step, BACK UP YOUR SITE.…Details
Last week there was a **possible** compromise of the Lastpass database. As time has gone on, it seems less and less likely that much, if any data was compromised. At first, the Lastpass folks recommended that users change their master password, just in case. That resulted in an overload on their systems, so they opted to lock the accounts in other ways. They are no opening up the system to allow master password changes again.Details
Many home users and businesses alike are using technology that is simply not designed for the way it’s being used on a daily basis, or even worse, don’t have a plan in place to prevent problems from occurring, including downtime and data loss. Too often, we are called on-site by frustrated clients who are unable to do their work or figure out a workaround because their technology suddenly isn’t working properly, or at all. Though we are happy to resolve such issues, we prefer to have a proactive plan in place that will greatly reduce the likelihood of problems from happening, and if they do, to have a “plan b” in place so the problem doesn’t affect their business operations, or cause nearly as much stress.Details
