It’s been a busy past few months with OS upgrades and new Power8 machines. That is an understatement as we have been crazy busy. I did an early morning OS upgrade today, and now I am sitting out on the lake relaxing and writing the newsletter. Fall is upon us, and the leaves are starting to turn. That water is completely calm as no one is out on the lake, the sky is a beautiful blue, and the trees are mostly green but you can start to see the red and yellow leaves in a few trees. As the boat gently rocks, and I look at the beautiful rolling hills surrounding the lake, I can see the change starting. Fall is the season of change, as we prepare for the winter, as well as in many places the middle of hurricane season. It begs the question, “Are you prepared?” If a hurricane hits your location? The electric was off for a week? There was no air conditioning in your computer room? You have a fire in the building. These are all disasters we should be prepared for. No matter what the disaster is, are you ready?
