November 22, 2011 Leave a comment

I’m no fan of Flash. As a web developer, I absolutely hate working with it. As an end user, I cringe at its many vulnerabilities and security flaws. As an administrator, I’m exasperated with its near-weekly patch releases. But as much as I would like to see Flash be chased out of our browsers by an online mob bearing digital torches and pixelated pitchforks, HTML 5 isn’t quite ready to fill the void resulting from such a coup…

We’ve Moved!

September 16, 2011 Leave a comment

You may have noticed that many of our most recent stories have only shown the first paragraph of the story and then directed you to click a link to view the rest. This is because we have chosen to move away from WordPress.com as our primary hosting service and start using our own. As such, our new URL is: http://www.sysmincomputing.com. We will still keep this site available for previous stories and links to our posts, but all new content (along with all of our previous posts) will be made available on the new site.
