I am constantly surprised by what people share online. Sometimes I’m horrified, sometimes shocked and occasionally amazed. My latest OMG! WDITOT? (Oh my gosh! Why didn’t I think of that?) moment came while trying to work out an issue with a table in Microsoft Word. Word’s built-in help function wasn’t that helpful and forced me to turn to other sources. Googling the issue, I found an instructional video, not on Microsoft’s extremely in-depth website, but on YouTube!
Yesterday I had to make a call to tech support for a product I was using that was giving me some issues. After about 40 minutes I worked my way through all the voicemail menus and, probably accidently, reached a live person. My “techie,” Bernard was “interested in genuinely helping me with the resolution of my issue” so I briefly described my problem and he asked me “to be waiting one minute” while he searched for the solution.
Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: What’s the Best Computing Choice for Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business – Your Lap or Your Desk?
CLNC® consultants often ask me, “Tom, should I buy a laptop or desktop for my legal nurse consulting business?” As always, my answer is firm and definite: “Well, my CLNC® amigo, it depends.” I love my laptop, but then again, I’m a mobile user shifting between the home office, the office office, the airplane office and the road office. On any given day I can be working from my lap in some mobile location. I’ll be logged into the Institute’s network through my Verizon wireless card from a conference room, camped out on the couch in our hotel room and once (well, maybe twice) in the backseat of a hotel’s airport shuttle van crunching away on a deadline.
