Come Join the Best of Lawrence Fun This Year

Published on February 6, 2017 By dgreenbaum

We’re excited to support the Best of Lawrence contest this year, and in particular the computer repair category.  Last year, we had some huge concerns about the contest. Those concerns were met with resistance and profanity (I had to delete some comments!)  This year, not only were we listened to, but the Lawrence Journal-World created a […]

Published on January 29, 2017 By dgreenbaum

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.

Published on August 11, 2013 By dgreenbaum

It’s big news when a large company gets hit with a major malware or virus infection. One of the more recent stories is a US power plant “invaded” due to careless use of a USB flash drive. Home users often feel they brought on the virus themselves due to porn surfing, when in fact reading […]

Published on June 9, 2013 By dgreenbaum

Image courtesy of Flickr user calmenda Yelp has been in the news quite a bit lately with Amy’s Baking Company blaming Yelp reviewers for “endangering their lives” and a San Diego law firm succesfully suing Yelp in small claims court.
