Top 8 ways to have a safe and happy Independence Day!

While you are out enjoying your 4th of July holiday, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Avoid storing fireworks in server rooms . . . or in the cloud;
  • Make sure your family turns on the Find my phone feature before you go to the fireworks show. Somebody always puts their phone down and they can’t find it in the dark.
  • When grilling, keep tablets and smartphones away from the grill. Your melted device may limit your MFA capability;
  • Stay off public Wi-Fi networks, or your ‘Independence’ might be hampered for a while;
  • Avoid performing server maintenance after consuming alcoholic beverages;
  • Think twice before using any Chinese fireworks that have a USB connection and require the installation of “drivers;”
  • When using an old server as a boat anchor remember to remove and destroy the hard drives first; and
  • If the fireworks are being sold out of a back room and they ask if you’re an ATF Agent, you may want to find a new store to shop!

  • Everyone at 10-D wishes you a safe and happy 4th of July!
