Technology is fine in dandy in so many areas of our lives, but there’s still nothing like the human touch in the things that we do, and how we relate to each other. It connects us to one another and makes for memories worth savoring. Just something to keep in mind.

Due to events beyond our control the fiber optic line that we use here got crushed and needs replacement. That’s brought most of our activities to a halt. We’re able to post this via a wireless connection. This raises the issue of infrastructure and redundant systems. They’re essential in this day and age. Planning makes all the difference.

Another meeting to address operational concerns by 3rd parties who barely have a vested interest in a technology project? Happens all the time, just be prepared, and do your research. The more you’re able to anticipate and answer questions the better. That’s how you keep a project moving forward.

Review Process

So, we here at Harbor News find ourselves once again reviewing software. Why? Times change and you’ve got to change with them. But, change for change’s sake is another matter. Make sure there’s a reason for what you’re doing, make sure it makes sense to make the change and always look at the pros and cons of any big project. Time is the one thing that we can never get back nor make more of. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Make the most of your time and plan projects and operational needs accordingly. The better planned things are, the more time you will have to spend on things that are important to you. Fun things.
