After due diligence, I’ve discovered that I’ve lived through 21 hurricanes in my life. That is 21 more than I care to remember, although let’s all admit it as children we loved playing in the winds.

Most of us that live in Louisiana are familiar with the World War II museum. It is the number one rated attraction in our state, a well-deserved reaction to an amazing space and place.

Although businesses routinely back up their servers, the problem is that 90% of organizations knowledge still resides in paper. One of the inherent benefits of electronic (digitized) documents is that a copy can easily be made and stored off-site, and viewe...

I don’t know, my file name was changed.
