Cybersecurity is back in the news this week.
The WannaCry ransomware or crypto-virus has infected many computers around the world and highlighted that the threat of scams, viruses, trojans, worms and ransomware is very real and that you need to be forever vigilant to keep your systems and your data safe.
In this article I want to remind everyone of some easy and simple ways to keep yourself safe.
In case you missed it, yesterday was Fabrikam Day for the Microsoft Dynamics GP community. This was the 12th April 2017, the date that the sample company’s, Fabrikam, data is based around.
For more information about Fabrikam Day and the sample company have a look at my article from yesterday:
Today is the 12th of April 2017 (at least it is already in Perth) and is now known in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community as “Fabrikam Day” thanks to the Training Dynamo herself, Amber Bell.
While most customers set up a test company based on their live company’s data, partners including ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) and sales & support consultants have usually used the Sample or Lesson company that comes with Dynamics GP to demo and test.
While working hard yesterday I came across a post shared on the Book of Face by my friend Denni Conner. It showed the mathematic constant of π (Pi) played as a song and was an interesting approach to try and memorize the sequence of numbers.
The post said it was Pi Day because the date was 3.14 and that the celebrated time was 1:59 PM as that gave the number sequence 3.14159 which is Pi to 5 decimal places and the most that “normal” people can remember. If you can remember more digits that is great, but you are in a minority.
Today is the 26th of January and in the “Lucky Country” it is the Australia Day public holiday.
Australia Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson in New South Wales and the landing of Governor Arthur Phillip in Sydney Cove.
Today is New Year’s Eve 2016, the final day for the year before we welcome in 2017 singing Auld Lang Syne like Boney M and then sleep for the first half of the day.
So for the final post for the year I have some videos to make you think.
I have been very busy the last few months working on the next build of GP Power Tools (Build 22) and so have not been posting much on the blog. I am extremely excited about the new release as the development almost complete. More details will follow.
However, today’s post is to wish everyone in the community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
