Vision & Imagination

“Where there is no vision the people perish.
~ (Proverbs 29:18)

Of Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, it’s the second habit, “Begin with the end in mind” that can really challenge a business owner, particularly, one who’s been in business for a decade or more. The constantly changing business climate is certain to take what may have been a successful vision ten years ago and make it useless or uncompetitive in today’s business environment. (In the March/April issue we reviewed the significance of adaptability).

This reinvention requirement is evident in every industry and within Information Technology it is very pronounced. Just consider for a moment Apple and their introduction of a new ipod every six months. Yes, the IT industry changes consistently every six months and rather dramatically every four years. Windows 7 anyone? (see below)

At C3 Networx we certainly recognize the importance to stay on top of the new, relevant technologies that can help YOU achieve the ultimate goal;  greater up-time and efficiency with reduced IT support costs.  Our recent investments in VoIP, Helpdesk, Remote Support and Monitoring tools, have helped to shape that new future vision and have redefined a service offering where we can remotely support you faster (8 of 10 calls) saving you both time and money.

Fortunately, the one thing that remains constant amidst all this change is our sincere appreciation for YOU. We recognize that in the end, we are in the SERVICE business first and the technology business second. So, while fancy, relevant technology is important, it’s serving the client with their best interest in mind that produces the ultimate win/win.

The “Best I.T. Experience™” means something to our engineers. It’s part of our long-standing tradition for excellent service coupled with over a decade of IT expertise. As we all seem to be experiencing some change in recent years, know our commitment to your satisfaction has not wavered. In fact, that’s one vision that will always remain unchanged.

Until next time,

Windows 7.0
7 Helpful Tips for Upgrading


Know before you go

We mentioned it in the last newsletter and now it is here! Be prepared and understand some critical information before you attempt to upgrade to the latest Windows operating system.

1) Visit the compatibility center download the
Upgrade Advisor.

2) Back up your data!! Especially if are going from XP to Windows 7, a clean install is required and all applications will require reloading.

3) Pick the right flavor: There are 6 released editions in all be sure you don’t overspend. Like Vista there is a Home, Professional and Ultimate edition. The detail is in above linked page.

4) Security software. If
you’re running Windows XP you may have some security
software– antivirus, antispyware, personal firewall, etc. Since Microsoft has improved security within Windows 7 system kernel,
those Windows XP-era security programs will most likely not work in
Windows 7.

5) Know Minimum Hardware Requirements: 1Ghz, 1GB RAM, 16GB Hard Drive for 32 bit OS Windows 7 and 1Ghz, 2GB RAM, 20GB Hard Drive for the 64 bit OS version of Windows 7.

6) TIME!: If your upgrade isn’t from Vista and your hardware is a couple years old some actual upgrade times have logged upwards of 20 hours. So consider taking the weekend or talking with an engineer and we can help to assess and recommend the best course of action.

7) Windows 7 easy transfer

The file is migwiz.exe. You can find it on the Windows 7 DVD under
Support\Migwiz this is used to keep your personal preferences in tact.

Putting Things Off!

How to make sure everything gets done by doing nothing.


A wildly popular and incredibly ingenius iPhone App is Putting Things OFF by Spiffing Apps.

However, don’t let the name fool you. This is a high-powered productivity app. The genius lies in the apps simplicity with only four trays to organize your ToDos; Inbox, Today, Put Off, Done.

It’s incredibly fast and simple to use and allows you to quickly capture everything (which is half the battle!).

A ‘Put Off’ task item can have a default time set to 3 days or 3 weeks – you choose! If you have an iPhone I highly recommend Putting Things Off which sells for $2.99 in the iTunes store.
