Network to the world

  • "Security" is a myth; Nothing is secure, it's all just levels of deterrence
  • Networking in our time is more than just connecting to the Internet. For your business it involves connectons to Wide Area Network, Local Area Network, Virtual Private Network, Remote Desktop Protocol, Exchange (Email), etc.
    Not to mention adding Wireless (WLAN), Mobile, Gaming Consoles, etc. We depend more than ever on being connected to the world around us. Keeping us informed, entertained, and safe.
    I have been working in the IT industry since 2007 professionally. Designing, deploying, configuring, securing, and maintaining network connectivity for both business and personal use.

  • What's with the name 99drop?

  • I'm an old Gretzky / Oiler fan. Started writing "99" on my lunch box 25 yrs ago, and the name stuck.
  • Decided to use 99production for URL, shortened to 99prod, scamble the letters and you get 99drop.
