Soaking up the summer philanthropy

Summer is on the horizon (really, it is!), and with that comes the summer-slump for many of us. We don’t want to be spending the beautiful days in the office, we want to be at the pool, on the beach, on the court, in the garden, napping on a hammock or playing with the kids. How can you keep up that philanthropic momentum, even when you’re being pulled toward the summer sun?

Get Pointed in the Right Direction

One of the most common problems we hear about on the support lines involves the ResultsPlus Primary Directory – the location on your network where all the ResultsPlus shared resources are located. If you have ever had a multi-user installation of ResultsPlus (not including ResultsPlus Online), it would not be uncommon for you to have had this occur at least once in recent memory. It happens when one little question gets skipped during installation, and suddenly a ResultsPlus workstation is pointed in the wrong direction and starts to behave strangely.

Thankfulness Never Gets Old

A new generation has arrived in my family and it has nothing to do with the birth of a child. For the first time, a member of a newer branch of the family tree has volunteered to host the family for Thanksgiving dinner. My niece has invited us all to her home in a downtown metropolitan area, providing the address of the parking ramp where we can park our cars.
