It still surprises me. . .

I’ve been in technology since I co-authored my first computer science class at Colorado College – a school that didn’t (then) offer a computer science curriculum. That’s a LONG time, by most standards. Yet the amazing array of technology available today still surprises me - more all the time – even after all these years.

Take today. Well, yesterday and today. A client’s laptop had failed yesterday morning – a hard drive crash. Rare, but devastating without the right backup in place (which he had, of course, as an Interconnected Technologies client). I took the laptop back to my office, just to see if I could recover the files from the drive. I could also have restored the files from the daily online, off-site, encrypted backup (which he had, of course, as an Interconnected Technologies client). I was able, however, with tools at my disposal, to copy his files from the disk directly to a computer in the office. While that was happening, I happened to have occasion to go to a remote location for a day or so – a mini-vacation! From there (here, actually, as I type this) I remotely accessed my office computer, configured it to have access to the client’s online file server (which they have, of course, as an Interconnected Technologies client who needs such a mechanism). I copied the restored files to a folder there. The client gets to have his files back – now - and I can do it all remotely, miles away from the office and more miles away from the client’s office.

This type of thing was not even on the horizon all those years ago. Yet here they are, affordable, secure and working on behalf of our clients!
