Closing out 2014, ringing in 2015

Well, 2014 is finally over.  I’ll be spending most of this weekend closing the accounting books and finishing up some last minute emergency repairs.

I’ve been reflecting on the biggest issues, and solutions, that I’ve dealt with this past year.

We’ve seen the end of XP (or have we?….. Stay tuned, it ain’t dead yet) and a virus attack that nearly wiped out a clients business (more on that later).

So, in the next few days I’ll have some more posts on how to keep XP, and for that matter windows 7, running for many years to come, my antivirus picks for 2015, and my short list of linux distros worth checking out.
