..rollercoaster ride of positive outlooks and negative realities. Making difficult decisions and reaping rewards of continued persistence.


It wasn't an easy day.


It wasn't a good day.


It wasn't a bad day.


I can't decide what I want right now though... to stay in and sulk or party all night.


I suppose I should shower and figure it out from there...

...well, never left the ground, but we "flew low."


And avoided all the troopers, if you know what I mean.


Made great time - got to Boston in just about 7 hours with one stop for coffee and one stop for gas. The Jetta cranked a sweet 32MPG so we covered the first 300+ miles on one tank.


Been a long time since I've had to drive myself a distance and worry about such things... I'm pretty impressed with that little car.

Why is good advice so hard to take...

20:47 Sep 08 2009
Times Read: 1,144


Just doing some calculations for a customer that we're moving into the 21st century by interconnecting all of their locations, and one of their vendors, using VPN's...


This was something I proposed to do for them two years ago, but now it is necessitated by their technology and software upgrades...


The VPN install is complete and now they are working entirely without the use of their old Dial-Up RAS devices, terminal servers and a lease-line that direct connected their two locations (at a whooping 56Kbps). It is an awesome advancement for them.


The sad part is, we're under a time crunch and trying to get this all done on deadlines, which is costing them more.


If they would have taken my advice two years ago, there wouldn't have been deadlines and it wouldn't have cost them as much.


Plus, they would have been able to eliminate up to 5 phone lines between their 3 locations AND their lease-line... at a savings of over $350/month...


..for two years.


$8,400 in savings... at a minimum. Almost double the cost of the VPN install....


Why is it so hard for people to see these things and take my advice?

Some people really have trouble looking down the road and calculating these things.... They can only see the NOW. They're not spending money NOW so they MUST be getting a good deal.

The problem is we're always offering a "good deal" if you compare it out to what other companies offer. For what we're charging to practically being their project management... install everything, configure everything and working with this vendor that likes to play hide-n-seek with the information we need from them... they're getting off cheaper than a sailor in Saigon.

People need better management skills- money, time, and possible outcomes of what they choose for their companies and for themselves as well.



Sometimes people can only learn through trial and error, not really a good way of doing it- even when they have a person who knows what they are talking about is giving them the heads up, but that is how so many people learn these days.



But soon they will learn and your advice will be invaluable to them. They will come to light as to what needs to be done and how it should be/have been done.

Money out the window

12:29 Sep 01 2009
Times Read: 1,211


One of the largest yet most invisible costs to any business is printing. The cost of supplies, paper, energy consumption and the administration of all the documents created.


71% of all businesses are completely unaware of their printing costs.


What if a business could reduce the upfront cost by over 50%, have a fixed, measurable cost to printing and virtually eliminate the administrative time it takes to file and retrieve documents?


Wouldn't that be invaluable to a business in a time when saving money is a huge priority?

Aspire Technology Solutions - Your Source for Technology!



Yeah... we do that too.


Paying less for your toners and ink and having them delivered next day at no charge would be a great way to start saving money today.


Free recycling of your old toner and ink cartridges would be a great way to start helping our environment today too.


Aspire offers you this, and more. Check it out.
