Geo-location. I use the term expecting everyone to know what I mean. But 18 months ago I wasn’t familiar with the term. It wasn’t until we started creating our routing page that I had much knowledge of it at all. I simply took getting from point A to point B using the navigation on my smartphone.  GPS has changed how we travel. Long gone are the days of paper maps, as much nostalgia as I have for them.

Application Uptime – Reaching for Five Nines

We’re doing backflow test management differently. No surprise there – we embrace that and see it as a positive. But sometimes that means setting expectations that things are in fact a bit different than people might be used to.
