Develop and Implement a Backup Strategy

Let me ask you a question. Just how far back would you be set back if the files on your workstation disappeared? How would you do your job? How much would this affect your agency? If you’re like me, a loss of these files would create quite a problem. This is why it’s important to develop a sound backup strategy.

Is paper a viable solution for password management?

For some it probably is. 

Experts say you should choose a different, complex password for each of your online accounts. But no one can remember that many passwords. The solution? Just write them down.

It took quite a long time for Temple to get a good Thai restaurant. I'm glad that we finally got one. Today was the second time we ate here. Both times the food was really good. You can tell a lot about an Asian food restaurant by the vegetables. Their vegetables are very fresh. We could see the kitchen staff peeling carrots and cucumbers by hand as we waited on our food. You won't likely find fresher, crisper veggies in any other restaurant. The sauces are wonderful. Very tasty and aromatic. They do use a lot of spice in their hot dishes. If you don't like spicy food, be careful what you order and specify what level of spiciness you want. Me, I love spicy foods and was very pleased. The cost is going to be a bit more than you might find in a chain restaurant. Most entrees are in the $9 dollar range. However, the servings sizes are so large you can easily feed two adults on one entree or if solo have enough left over for a second meal. We'll definitely come back.
