One of the services offered by Solidarity IT is destruction of data to military standard. This is a impressive sounding term, perhaps bringing to mind the image of someone strapping a bomb to an old computer. What it actually involves however, is much less dramatic, but certainly more practical, and actually leaves the hard drives […]
A tasty tapas, good company, interesting tales and building business links. That’s what happened at the Olive tapas in Newton Abbot this Wednesday lunchtime. I was asked by Chris of Devon Matters to assist with the organisation of the latest meetup of the A38 Business Club networking group. 15 of us were able to make […]
It was great to attend the BBX Christmas gathering and hear the great work Vision ICT’s Daniel Hiller did in India during his recent volunteering there. I got to chat with my accountant and also to speak with a social media marketing expert who will help me up my game in the new year. Great […]

The bay Today saw me enjoying the lovely sunny weather and crisp sea air of the English Riviera. A guest house in Paignton had ordered a custom computer from our Build-IT service, so a trip down to the bay waa in order to deliver it. Whilst there I had the opportunity to enjoy the sea […]
