I’ve blogged and blogged about the usefulness of the Adobe PDF (portable document format) file format and its usefulness to legal nurse consultants. For the longest time these files were pretty much free from attack by hackers and other malfeasors. Well, that’s all changed and Adobe Reader and Acrobat are now under attack. If you haven’t switched to one of the free or alternative PDF reader/creators, it’s time to take at least one step to help protect yourself from the hackers.
Sometimes we really need business advice, but even when that advice is readily available we don’t take it. For this blog I asked the CLNC Pros to share the “best advice they never took” but wish they had.
After working in a large clinic for 22 years, I retired. I was 48, my life was changing, my workplace was changing and I qualified for early retirement, so I took it. My family was growing up, and I began to wonder, “What am I going to do now?” Then I found LegalNurse.com’s LegalNurse.com website and became intrigued.

We’d be scanning the ice flows for anything that looked like it might be alive and when Richard would spot a bear he’d tell me something like, “It’s lying on its belly, off the bow at 2:00, about a mile out, just past the two ivory gulls and to the left of the walrus with the cavity in its left tusk.”
Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: How Do I Dispose of Legal Nurse Consulting Files on My Old Computer Now That I Have a MacBook Pro?
Three weeks ago I bought and installed a larger, faster hard (disk) drive for my laptop. The old drive sat safely locked in a desk drawer waiting for disposal, until last Friday. That evening I took it home and hammered it to death in the street while one of the neighbor’s kids watched.
