Being Thankful, Pumpkin Pie, & CDT Bootcamp

thanksgiving-grateful

Hello again everyone, is it already November?

Yes it is…and exciting times continue here at CSINext!

Here in the United States, we are at the beginning of the holiday season, and it all starts November 24th when we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Way back in the 1600’s, this traditional gathering, started by early colonists, celebrates life’s blessings.  It is always a time of gatherings, celebration, and indulging in way too much pumpkin pie – but nonetheless it kicks off one of the most joyous times of the year.  So, this month, we here at CSINext celebrate you…our Chapter Members.  Without you and your support of not only CSI and CSINext, none of what we share here would be possible. May you and your families have a joyous and safe start to the holiday season wherever you may be!

Hack 2022

news_hacked-1200x830

Who hacks web sites and to what end? This has always been a nagging question. I’ve been nervous for the past 6 months. And you may ask why? Every time there is pollical blow back between the nations, US web sites seem to take a beating. I really try to stay ahead of the security at CSINext, but it is a non-stop effort. CSINext has had about a dozen hacks, 3 of them over the past 10 years, have been data corrupting.

Plan the Work and Work the Plan

pl2207_plan-1280x960

Well, hello again everyone, hope everyone is well.  My apologies for length between columns, hopefully I can make up for the lost time here this month. 

The main purpose of a punch list is to identify project items that need to be completed or corrected right?  But we should also use those items in future applications, so we do not repeat the failures of the past.  In this industry we barely have enough time and money to do it the first time – it is imperative to do it right the first time.  And one of the things as industry professionals we can do right the first time is the project schedule.
