Chilly Pepper Hire - IT - Time for a Review

Computer IT

Labour & Hire Rates Below

Idea TIME FOR A REVIEW - Thinking:-

Backup data - off site - on Site - Both onto hard drives (not tapes) - for immediate use.



The Most likely componant to fail on any computer is the hard drive, for you its like taking the risk of flying the Atlantic on a single engine Commercial aeroplane (or "airplane" for those across that pond) - you would not do it.

Fit two drives - for continuous Mirror Image (RAID) to all computers - safer and your Computer can continue if one drive fails - saves on down time (wages) - and the inevitable aggravation and "computer rage"! - stress down. Continue on one drive, then when it suits you - Replace the faulty drive - hit the re-build button for the new drive - and away you go.

This is about 4 - 10 times cheaper than the alternative.


Add a new network point, for a network printer, web cam, expansion hub



Upgrade your internal network speed from 100m to 100,000m (1Gig)

Upgrade memory and that Video card (often linked to crashes and freezes)


Install / update firewall - add keywords / sites to block (Duty of Care)



You need 2 screens that work together and /or seperatly (its like going from mono to stereo) - so common these days.

Have your Email / Diary on one screen and your work on the other. Spread that large spread sheet over the two screens. Compare directly two different web pages or cut & paste from one document to the other without have to close one down. View accounts - outstanding invoices and contact details both at the same time etc. etc.

As they say - (or is it, we say!) 2 screens are better than one and they also act as a good "screen" between people.


Build Computers that match your requirements:-

arrow image Often very much cheaper and from Industry Sandard Componants (such as a better Video card because you do not need a Sound Blaster)

arrow image So so much easier to modify, upgrade / downgrade

arrow image So much freedom - (hence you are not tied to Manufactures expensive repairs and upgrades and OEM operating systems etc.).

arrow image You own your transferable operating system not the Manufacturer (such as XP / Vista) which can be transfered to a replacement computer, hence reduced cost of ownwership in the long term.



Run Computers in Cool & Quiet Modes often available, but not set up - you will notice the difference!



Upgrade XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) to SP3



Disaster Recovery:- IT and The Air Conditioning (one call)

If your Air Con goes down, no matter how well your computers are backed up, it can "all" go down in a matter of hours.
