Woo-hoo! Spring Break.

It’s already spring — but we’ve known that for some time down here in South Texas. That means that it’s time for a bit of a break and reset. The Texas Computer Cooperative is closed next week. But we’ll be back and ready to go on the 21st of March. Have a great week!

Yes! The newest TxEIS (2.0.0005) is available. And it’s got lots of great enhancements. The most obvious is the new color scheme. Lovely, trust me.

Boot Camp (a Texas Computer Cooperative training for new consultants) was, as usual, a great success. Led by our ace up the sleeve, Charles Wimett, the week-long class touches on all things TxEIS so that our consultants can help y’all out with just about anything (that broken water main at home will probably warrant a plumber, though). So you make sure to contact us with any questions: we’re ready!
