The Zen of Recovery
RecoverySoft / July 21, 2018

Addiction. It is probably the most horrific word I can think of in the English language. It is the thing that altered my entire life and almost rendered a further life impossible for me. I went from a successful writer and editor to a convicted felon within a very short space of time, 24 hours to be exact. That's all it takes, after all, one day, just 24 hours to turn from whatever you once were to someone you no longer know. The addiction itself of course grew and evolved over the course of a few years, but the cataclysm of change took only one day. Officially, I call myself "Lady Lazarus," although the descriptor is not mine. I owe Sylvia Plath for that name because she wrote an awe-inspiring poem of the same title. But, I use that name because technically, I am a woman who came back from the dead, much like Lazarus in the Bible. I was a respected, well-liked, quiet, and by all accounts decent woman when I started ingesting large quantities of Xanax for my anxiety problems. (I had no idea that I had a lot more than "anxiety." In fact, I had a full-blown…

Computer Backup: Are You Willing to Roll the Dice?
RecoverySoft / July 19, 2018

It is estimated that about 90% of households have at least one computer in the home. Computer Industry Almanac reports that at the end of 2011, there were 310.6 Million computers in use in the US. Studies suggest that the average adult spends between 5 – 8 hours on the computer per day between work and home. I believe that it is safe to say that computers play a huge part in our lives. Computers are interwoven into just about every aspect of our lives. We use them to pay bills, preform business transactions, connect with our loved ones and the world. We use them to play games, check the weather, gamble, make travel arrangements and the list goes on. In the process of doing all those things, the computer has also become a place where we store important documents and pieces of information, as well as priceless memories, making computer backup essential. We want to keep our cherished memories and data for the long term. Computer backup is simply the storage of your computers files on a medium other than hard disk. The process is done in order to protect your valuable information in the event it becomes inaccessible…

What Is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?
RecoverySoft / July 13, 2018

Liposuction is a surgical procedure done through tiny incisions to permanently remove any external fat that you may have in problem areas. Typically, the feeling you will have right after liposuction is a sensation of post-workout pain, or the muscle soreness and pain you may feel after extreme exercise. The areas of liposuction will feel sore and numb for several days after your procedure. After a few days, you will probably feel itching, burning, electrical shocks, and similar feelings in the areas of liposuction. This is good, because it means that the nerves supplying your skin are beginning to have less swelling and are starting to heal. After several weeks, you should have normal feelings in your skin in all areas of liposuction. Sometimes you may develop hardened soft tissue areas where you had liposuction. This may occur because you are wearing your post-surgery compression garment incorrectly, or your body may be trying to develop scar tissue in the areas of surgery. Often wearing your garment in a different fashion, or starting to massage that areas that are beginning to get harder, or both, will alleviate any asymmetry and scar tissue that is trying to form. Patients can usually get…

RecoverySoft / July 12, 2018

Aside from natural disasters, there are many other reasons that companies and businesses should require a disaster recovery plan in the event something may occur. In the corporate world, there is an increased reliance on computer networks, databases and online services more than ever which adds a great deal of vulnerability and potential for loss of data. There may be a disaster in the form of an unexpected virus, network outage, internet outage, or malfunctioning equipment at any moment in time. A company or business can not expect 24/7 access to these online services without some risk for disaster at some point. Luckily, there are several ways any size company or business can recover through business communication products and services. In order to have the most success and recovery, a company or business must be sure to: Define goals: • Minimize the physical and financial damage caused by the unplanned event or disaster. • Restoring business operations immediately. • Protect vital resources such as equipment, data and documents.

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / July 8, 2018

In any business, especially in an IT firm, data is one of the key elements used in running daily operations. There are several ways in which a firm can store and protect its data. In the past, disaster preparation would often require IT staff to travel to off-premise data centers and/or copy corporate data onto tapes. However, advances in technology and computing platforms have enabled the creation of better and more scalable data storage mechanisms. These have paved the way for complete Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions that can be used instead of internal IT teams. When data is breached or hacked into, uncontrollable losses will occur. To prevent this, many companies opt to have in place disaster response measures and even dedicated teams for managing such situations. Today, you’ll find two main categories of computing: cloud computing and hardware server-based computing. This includes the use of DRaaS or traditional backup methods to protect and store data. With current technology, DRaaS offers several advantages over traditional backup and disaster recovery methods. DRaaS is quite reliable and helps address many challenges, including mobility, portability and high performance, among other features. Traditional disaster recovery does not offer the capabilities that…

RecoverySoft / July 3, 2018

If you have a touch screen cell phone, whether it’s an iPhone, iPad or any other brand name smartphone or pad, tablet, PDA or even a monitor that has a touch activated screen and it is suffering from any of the following symptoms, then you may need to replace the touchscreen digitizer. Some symptoms of digitizer problems may include: · Touchscreen does not respond when touched. · Touchscreen is slow to respond when touched. · Some areas of the touchscreen do not respond when touched. · Some areas when touched respond incorrectly or erratically. · Some applications seem to randomly open. In case you don’t know what a touchscreen digitizer is, and most people don’t, it is typically a thin plastic like film that adheres to the glass screen of your device that has a touch sensitive screen. This digitizer connects to the motherboard of your device and sends information regarding the location or position and movements of your finger or stylus on the screen. The digitizer basically is responsible for all of the touch functionalities of the touch screen. In other words any data input such as touching an icon to activate it, or virtual keyboard or even handwriting…

Your Best Bet For Data Backup: Choosing the Right Strategy
RecoverySoft / July 2, 2018

When it comes to backing up your sensitive data, there are a number of strategies that you can use. The key is to choose the method that will provide you with the level of protection you require, while being easy enough to ensure that it can be used regularly and efficiently. There are three main computer back up strategies; back up to local media, online or cloud backup and private cloud backup. Local Media Backup Local media backup involves backing up your data onto a storage device that is located close to your computer system. Local media storage devices include things like external hard drives, USB flash drives, or CD / DVD-RW disks. In most cases, you simply install data backup software, connect the storage device to your computer and follow the program instructions. The advantage of using local media backup is that it is simple, efficient and relatively low-cost. Your data is secure, provided you keep it in your possession or physically well guarded at all times. Another plus is the accessibility of your data. You can backup or retrieve your data at any time and quickly transfer it to its desired location. The disadvantages of local media backup…
