SPAM, SPAM & SPAM - What is Spam?
Spam is usually sent indiscriminately to hundreds if not hundreds of thousands of inboxes using recipient addresses often obtained by illegal means. Spam is sometime referred to as â€œJunk Mailâ€ although this should not be confused with legitimate e-mail shots sent to subscribed addresses.
Discus provide a proven email filtering service which will eliminate up to 99% of all Spam â€“ speak to Damien about our hosted email service on 0800 880 3360 or send an email to damien @ discus . co. uk
Green IT Most people now agree that being 'green' is the socially acceptable norm. A survey into public attitudes and behaviours found, rather than being an alternative lifestyle, the main motivation for an environmentally friendly lifestyle is guilt about harming the environment..,
It is said that an environmentally friendly firm not only saves money but can achieve an edge over its competitors with clients who look for corporate responsibility towards the planet rather than profiteering.
Here at Discus we try to do our bit. Damien makes sure we recycle cardboard, paper, plastic and tin. We also understand that Green IT is not only about the new stuff you buy; recycling PCs for use in the third world is an initiative every business should adopt. Second hand machines expand the use of computers and IT skills around the globe and without draining scarce resources producing a new machine. The EUâ€™s WEEE - Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment â€“ directive attempts to get businesses to dispose of electronic gadgets responsibly through recycling and reuse.
