I've been setting up networking components to help a local client deploy point of sale systems on secure networks for his customers. It's been fun! I've had to branch out and learn a few things that are new to me, but I see some great applications for what I've learned with other clients as well. We have set up nested routers with failover internet and firewalls that ensure that the customer's network is (I won't say impenetrable because I don't think that's ever possible) difficult and highly unlikely to be hacked. Getting multiple routers to work together and play nice is a challenge but now, with all the proper configurations and settings done, it works great. When/if the internet goes out, the main router fails over to a backup router that is equipped with a data sim from Verizon so that the customer can continue to process sales over the Internet with only a few (likely unnoticeable) seconds of disruption.

A couple of weeks ago one of my clients was nearly scammed by an online scammer. I want to share two things with you. First, I’ll share a sample screenshot of what you might see pop up on your computer compelling you to call the scammer. Don’t! (I have blacked out the phone number on the photo so that you can’t call on this one.) Next, I’m going to share a YouTube channel of a guy who is actively working to take the scammers down. And I have got to tell you, this is good stuff. He explains how the scams work. He does different things to screw with the scammers including deleting files off their computers while they are logged into his computer. It’s so satisfying to see the scammers cry. Here’s a link to one of his YouTube videos. youtu.be/eq8cKjdNpCoAnd if you need a geek…-I amYour Geek! ... See MoreSee Less
