“The Hair of the Dog” Lives in Infamy

Most clichés originated from terms that were once clever, useful and connoted some broader meaning from hearing the phrase. These welcome, useful terms catch on and last over time but eventually get overused and then get relegated to cliché status. “The Hair of the Dog,” as an example, lives in infamy today to mean, ‘indulge again in what you overindulged, and you may feel better’. This term originated from a 16th century medical “remedy”... Read more...

Working from Home Continues to Test Patience of IT Administrators

Has this happened to you recently: You get an email from yourself asking you to click a link to see an agenda you didn’t write or for an invoice you never sent? The newest are people sending you pictures of checks that they supposedly put in the mail to you (hoping you click on the image which then makes nefarious things happen).

This message would... Read more...

Signs of the Times: Dealing with Lower Home Bandwidth and a Host of Other New Security Threats

As 2020 plods along, new tech challenges I never thought we’d face are becoming realities. First of all, as I’m sure many of you who share living spaces have noticed, home internet connections have become less than ideal during the 8AM – 12 noon timeframe. My kids’ virtual learning via video hogs so much bandwidth that my own video calls for business are cutting out (fortunately, virtual school is only half a day). Another, more insidious,... Read more...

A Messi Situation: $800 Million Fax Misses Deadline, Should Have Used Email E-Delivery Proof

Soccer/Futbol superstar, Lionel Messi, longed for a transfer after a humiliating Champions League knock out loss to Bayern Munich. Where to go from here? Paris? Manchester? Luckily, he built in a back-door exit clause in his contract where, if he notified Barcelona brass before the end of the current season, any club with a big enough wallet that was courting him could avoid paying Barcelona a $800 million transfer fee—obviously a prohibitive sum.... Read more...

Let me just get this out of the way: there will be no political commentary here—only observations about the format of the convention and how this is relevant to our ability to communicate how we can lower e-sign costs and also optimize email security automation. Obviously, the DNC (that’s the Democratic party organization)... Read more...

Remember the good old pre-pandemic days when you would get one of those internal emails about a “brown bag” lunch? Maybe, if you were lucky, your company would foot the bill for catering.
