TMS newsletter - March 2019


Hoping you are all well!

Because I'm certainly not...
But the plus side of being stuck in bed with a bad foot is that I get to finally write you all a newsletter. Considering my plan was to write one every month you can see how busy things have got when the last one was in October!
Apologies to anyone who had sessions cancelled due to my illness. I am pleased to report that I will be back in action from Friday 15th March and will be in touch asap to rearrange your slots.


Starting shortly I will be back to working on Thursdays again so will be delivering a full 5 days a week of Technology training and support to my lovely customers!

So if you have found it difficult to book in a session this will be a great time to do so.

Stuck in bed... What an opportunity!

So what does a technology trainer do when they're stuck with their computer and nobody to assist? Essential admin of course!

I have been running through all of my web site passwords and ensuring that they are secure and up to date. It is a long road but I'm working towards having no passwords duplicated between different web sites. And why is that important you may ask? Well... However secure your password might be, you cannot guarantee the security of the web sites which you are signing in to. If a single site falls prey to hackers and discloses your email address and password to them, the first thing the hackers will do is try out your sign in details on as many other web sites as possible. If you duplicate your passwords there is a good chance they will find their way into something. The most important password to have secure is the one for your email address, because if that gets hacked into the bad guys have the opportunity to reset your passwords for other things.

If you would like a hand spring cleaning your passwords just get in touch and I will always be happy to help!

Interesting Technology

This section is for looking at technology ideas that I think are ingenious. It's important to know however that we haven't tested any of these technologies and are not recommending them, just found them interesting! Click on the pictures to be linked to the relevant video.

Virtual reality flying simulator

This looks amazing. The 'Birdly' flight simulator lets you fly like a bird complete with wind in your hair!

IBM project debater

IBM have been working on systems that can successfully hold a reasoned debate with humans and bring a different perspective to arguments.

Digital Jewellery

I've never been particularly interested in jewellery, but if this is what the future of fashion looks like I'm suddenly slightly more intrigued!

See you next time

The last thing we would ever want to do is spam your email address, so this newsletter is supposed to be a monthly (been much less frequent than that recently!) event filled with content designed to inspire and educate our friends and customers, and keep you up to date with what we're working on. Of course if you would rather not receive our monthly freebie, there is a link to unsubscribe at the bottom of this email! If you have friends or family who you believe would be interested in getting this newsletter, you can sign them up on our contact page - Click here to go to the TMS contact page

Finally, if there is anything you would like to see in our newsletter then just let us know!

With best wishes to you all,

Chris Smith
Lead Trainer
