When I initially thought about this, I was going to pick a single day of the week for shameless self promotion and thought “Hey, new movies are released to DVD & Blu-Ray on Tuesdays, so why not Tuesday?” It just so happens that I opened a new business and launched a new service at Cohesive Logic on Tuesday as well, so Tuesday seems like a natural fit to engage in shameless self promotion. So expect posts from me on Tuesdays whenever I have something new I want you to know about.
Without further ado, I’m happy to announce the below today:
- At Cohesive Logic, we’ve launched our Hosted Exchange 2013 service into production effective today. We aren’t reselling anyone’s service – we own the hardware, designed/deployed the entire infrastructure, and manage the network that the servers reside in. We guarantee 99.9% availability (it’s been well above that to date for the Friends & Family we’ve been hosting) and really know what we’re doing when it comes to Exchange. So if you happen to need hosted Exchange, or aren’t really sure if you do, visit the informational page at http://www.hostedexchange2013.us and request information. We’ll be releasing a datasheet later today and updating our site to reflect the availability of this service later this week.
- While my close friends and some of my family are most definitely aware of it, I don’t think most know that my largest time sink outside of work for the last couple years has been preparing for natural disasters, civil emergencies, and the like.Being the unabashed capitalist I am, combined with the fact that I think people really need to prepare for how they’ll take care of themselves in a natural disaster, I’ve launched Plateau Preparedness, a small retailer of quality preparedness gear that I’ve personally tested and use myself. There aren’t many products there yet – I’m one man and I am manually entering and updating every product – but I will personally stand behind everything sold. If you don’t like it, if it doesn’t meet your needs, even if you just want to screw with me, I will refund your money if you aren’t happy.We’re also going to be releasing Personal Evacuation and Relocation Kit (P.E.R.K.) Bags in the coming weeks. These are designed to be small backpacks that you can keep in your home, your office, your car (or all three) that you can grab and go without worrying about packing them. They’ll have everything you need for 72+ hours outside of your normal environment. Think what you would do right now if you were at your office and an earthquake happened; would you have the supplies you need to get home safely?
That’s it for today, but seeing that my mind is continually wandering, and knowing the projects already in motion to release over the next 3-6 months, you’ll definitely see more of these in the future.
