        I have relied on Jeff and his crew for not only minor 'bugs' that occur but also for swapping out the entire data from an older laptop into the one I currently use. They have always been able to do the job and quickly. Most of the time they are able to resolve the issue over the phone, while controlling my computer from their office. Love it!!

      For Emergency Purposes Only: Users Can Now Activate Facebook’s Safety Check

      Since 2014, Facebook has quietly featured Safety Check, a crisis response tool that lets users in areas struck by natural disasters or other emergencies to confirm their safety on the social network. Originally, Facebook itself would have to activate a Safety Check, but that has changed--the power to activate a safety check is now in the hands of the stricken community.


      One of the most devastating elements of any disaster is not knowing if affected friends and loved ones are safe. Safety Check is meant to reduce the fear of this unknown by giving users a simple way to confirm that they are okay, and to check in to make sure the people they cared about were safe as well. However, when Facebook retained total control over the tool’s activation, it was put into effect a total of 39 times worldwide between December of 2014 and December of 2015.

      Unfortunately, this number is clearly far too low for a tool meant to chart disasters around the world. As a result, Facebook took steps to put the power to activate Safety Check in the hands of those who would need it most--the communities affected by the crisis in question.

      Utilizing a two-step system, Facebook will first receive confirmation that an event is taking place through a network of third-party organizations, and then analyze the chatter put out by the community in the affected area to determine if Safety Check is warranted. This new, fully-automated process has been put to use 328 times since first being tested in June of 2016.

      Disasters, unfortunately, are a terrible fact of life on this planet. It is difficult to be prepared for anything, but with tools like Facebook’s Safety Check, we can at least be informed that our loved ones are safe.

      Tip of the Week: 3 Simple Tricks to Resolve a Troublesome Wi-Fi Connection

      Step One: Check Yourself
      Before you get started, make sure that your router is located far away from other electronic devices. This is because devices can often hamper your router’s ability to broadcast a signal. When there are devices or other obstacles between your own device and the router, like walls or floors, the signal is further weakened.

      Therefore, a simple fix is to elevate the router, especially if its signal needs to reach a higher floor. This cuts down on the distance between point A and point B, allowing for both a stronger signal and a more efficient router location in general. Hopefully, this resolves the problem, as there will be fewer places where the connection can get caught up.

      Step Two: Antenna Adjustments
      If your router or device has an external antenna, you can try to adjust it to find the ideal Internet connection. It’s hard to suggest an optimal antenna orientation, but chances are that you’ll be able to figure it out pretty quickly with a little trial and error.

      If you still can’t get out of the dead zone, you can replace the antenna entirely. You may even have to resort to a standalone antenna/extension cord combo. The idea is to extend your device’s reach to a place far beyond the dead zone. With any luck, you should be able to pick up the signal that you need, even if you technically shouldn’t be able to. If the equipment you’re using just doesn’t have an antenna, you can use USB adapters for a similar effect.

      Yet, if these adjustments still aren’t helping your technology connect, it might be time to buckle down and go all-in on a Wi-Fi extender. Instead of figuring out the optimal position for a router, a Wi-Fi extender takes your signal and extends it even further, effectively repeating the signal so that any devices within range of the extender can connect to the Wi-Fi. It’s great for getting around an immovable object like a wall.

      Step Three: Upgrades and Updates
      The final step is to make sure that your router and any adapters are all up-to-date themselves. While you may not notice significant problems at first, there is the possibility for significant trouble down the road. Like all office solutions, it’s important that you keep your connectivity technology updated with the latest patches, firmware updates, and drivers. Doing so can help you considerably extend the lifespan of your technology.

      With these best practices, you should have no trouble with your Wi-Fi connection troubleshooting. If you still have difficulty, however, let PC Technologies give you a hand. To learn more about the services we offer, reach out to us at 360-491-2227.

      Honor Among Hackers? Not for Those Who Hack Hospitals

      Before we dive in too deep, we want to make the statement that we don’t sympathize with hackers in any way, shape, or form. However, it is fascinating to investigate the inner machinations of a hacker’s mindset, and doing so can help your business better protect itself from future hacking attacks.

      Ransomware is a major threat to hospitals due to its ability to cripple systems and lock down important--potentially life-saving--files. While the number of attacks on hospitals is still relatively low, it’s feared that the successes of others will draw more attention to just how lucrative the practice can be. When lives hang in the balance, hospitals are more likely to pay the ransom, though there are always exceptions. For example, some hospitals are prepared for ransomware and they have ways to decrypt their files, or to restore a backed-up copy of their data.

      Surprisingly enough, there are hackers who think that hospital hacks are completely inappropriate. ZDNet reports that there’s a certain code of ethics used by hackers in the Russian underground, and it makes sure to label hospitals as off-limits. This verdict extends beyond borders, even into countries that are known to be hacked by Russian cyber criminals. ZDNet cites a forum where hackers discussed the ethics of hacking at length: “Yes, this is pretty sad and a new low. These ransom attacks are bad enough, but if someone were to die or be injured because of this it is just plain wrong.”

      Keep in mind that these words came from a hacker. Yes, there are those that do have some semblance of moral standards.

      Of course, you can’t rely on hackers to display the same ethical standards as others. While some might hesitate to hack specific targets, there are others that will brutally assault your infrastructure, regardless of what it holds. Unfortunately, you have other matters to handle, like running your business, making network security a secondary priority. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could outsource this responsibility to professional technicians trained specifically on the security of your IT infrastructure?

      To protect your systems from hacking attacks, your best chance is to reach out to PC Technologies. We can arm your systems with enterprise-level network security solutions designed to prevent and detect attacks before they cause significant damage. In particular, we can take preventative measures against ransomware. Since it often comes attached to spam, we can prevent these messages from hitting your inbox in the first place.
