Published on October 15, 2017 By dgreenbaum

We advised clients not to upgrade to Windows 10.  Some clients listened, but their computers didn’t.  Microsoft made it confusing and client computers upgraded to Windows 10 accidentally.  If this happened to you, money might be coming back to you. From what I’ve seen, this lawsuit has the best chance of being turned into a class […]

Don’t be like Jon Snow, Protect Your Emails like a Khalessi

Published on July 16, 2017 By dgreenbaum

I suspect you’re watching Game of Thrones right now (yes I wrote this in advance).  Fortunately, no major spoilers leaked this time.  There’s a reason for that:  cast and crew had special email protections.

The Journal-World recently that Lawrence had the “best tax growth in the state.”  While much of this was due to construction, I’m glad we played a small part in that.
