Byte Me Article 363 – Beef Week

28th April 2018

We’re Like Bulls At The Gate

I can feel the tempo here in Rockhampton ramping up.  Traffic is getting busier; more jobs are coming through the door and there is getting to be more of a sense of urgency about the place.  There is little wonder with Beef Week kicking off next Sunday as one of the biggest events on the Rockhampton calendar – and an event which only occurs once every 3 years.

This is a tremendous thing for Rockhampton which for an entire week, places us on a world stage.  It is also a huge boost for the local economy and will result in tourism spin offs for the next year or more as ‘out of towners’ discover some of our jewels such as the Capricorn coast.

Last time it ran in 2015 we powered all the Beef Australia Servers, Workstations and Laptops to keep the entire show on the road.  This time around we want to go a step further and look after a swag of the participants, so we are offering some Beef Week specials.  There are close to 140 individual events occurring during the 7 days and we don’t want you to miss out on anything important.

If you bring your laptop or tablet to Kerr Solutions at 205 Musgrave Street, we will download the entire Beef Week program and Venue Map onto it with handy desktop shortcuts so you know exactly what is happening, where and when.  This above service is totally free – and does not require you to have an Internet connection on the device for it to work.

The other Beef Week special that we are running is if you have a desktop or laptop PC then bring it in for a free comprehensive health check and diagnostic.  While you are here, you can meet the team and we’ll also give you a free Kerr Solutions premium neoprene drink holder – how cool is that?

Sure, we are expecting a busy week but we have all the techs fired up and ready with even our newly married Simon back from 4 weeks honeymoon!  In the case of the Beef Week Program and Venue Map – we can do that in just a few minutes while you wait.  For the comprehensive health check and diagnostic, we will give you a call within just a few working hours with the results.

All the above is coinciding with the launch of our new mobile friendly web site which not only lists all our latest hardware and service offerings but also all of these Byte Me articles that I have written since mid-2013 – a total of nearly 400 individual IT articles!

Bigger and brighter than ever we have a special web section for rural users as well as vital IT information for everyone from corporate to home users.  2018 is fast shaping up to be a big year but next weeks’ Beef Week is certain to be the brightest star in the entire calendar.  We look forward to seeing you soon! 

Future Byte Me topics can be emailed to [email protected] and Bruce is contactable at Kerr Solutions, 205 Musgrave Street or on 49 222 400.
