How to Protect Your DropBox Data

As has been mentioned here before,  DropBox and services like it have a lot of interesting  uses. The problem though is that for the security conscious these uses are limited and to the security unconscious they are downright dangerous. This isn't specific to DropBox, however.

How Do You Make Time For Your Company Website?

I studied social work for 8 years and received my Bachelor's Degree.  So why am I spending my days working on websites?  I missed my kids and didn't want to miss out on their pre-school years, so I quit to work from home.  We had no idea how things would turn out but Koji and I are compatible in our work ethic, passion for problem-solving and desire to make things as simple as possible for busy people.

Why Do I Need An SSL?

I often find myself out of my realm with technical terms about some of the web products our company provides.  We've sold digital certificates for several years, and I simply invoiced these every year with no concept of what they were for - until I set up my eCommerce store. Read more »
