Your DSL Phone line and you: by Tech Aaron, Internet Specialist
Important Information About Your DSL Phone Line During the holiday season it is very easy to forget to pay your bills or put them off another month, however did you know that if your AT&T phone line gets disconnected your DSL service has to be reordered? If your AT&T phone service is interrupted, this can cause around three (3) weeks of internet down time, sometimes more depending on the re-connect situation.

Holiday Photograph Hosting:
by Tony Cricelli, Chief Technology Officer
Many of us take lots of photographs, some of which we want to share with family and friends. Often we want to pre-process the photos, for example, crop, straighten, sharpen, etc…. and then share the finished masterpieces. There is a fantastic free program called Picasa which can be downloaded here:
Once you install Picasa you can use it to process your photos and then with a click of the button you can use it to publish your photos to your Red Shift hosting account. Picasa also starts up automatically when you connect your camera and imports the photos and videos.
Then all you have to do is E-mail the link to your friends and family without having to E-mail individual photos. Using a program like Picasa which will import, process and publish your photos takes all the aggravation out of the process. If you have any questions on setting up Picasa with your Red Shift hosting account contact our Internet specialists.

Free Office Productivity Software? Could It Be True? by John Carpenter, Salinas Store Manager
Open Office is probably the most popular of these alternatives. It is a full featured productivity package, offering near perfect compatibility with the most common file types. You may download the Open Office installer at http://www.openoffice.org
Google has also entered the word processing fray with their Google Docs web application. It is still new and may have a few bugs, but free is a good price.
