Let Us Update Ya!

Antikythera Mechanism | Ripple IT Support

Keeping your technology (workstations, servers, software, etc) up-to-date is important, but it’s often seen as something that can be shelved.

Backup everything.. twice!

Back everything up twice | Ripple IT

That’s right! There’s a monthly competition in Atlanta where baristas from all over town (and sometimes beyond) get together, pitch in 5 dollars, and try their luck at pouring the best latte art. And from what we’ve observed, the Atlanta barista community knows how to throw a party. Sooo… latte art? Yep, if you’ve ever… Read more »

Rock'em Sock'em Robots | Ripple IT
