What is Patch Management?

When was the last time you treated yourself to dinner and a show? Well, it’s time! Last weekend I enjoyed an artistic feast called Teatro ZinZanni, and, without a doubt, it is one of the best performances I have ever seen. The show performs in Chicago, Seattle, and San Francisco and it is worth a flight if you aren’t living nearby. It was 3 hours of jaw dropping talent, plus a delicious 4 course dinner. Here is a little teaser.  

There was a moment in my youth when I was an aspiring musician, but the time came to seriously pursue it, I didn’t have the courage to go forward. I had the sobering realization of how much commitment, hard-work, and talent it takes to make it as an artist, plus the luck needed on top of all that. I know I made the right career choice because what my team, and I do every day to ease the challenges of our clients is very fulfilling. I have so much appreciation for those who chose the arts, gave it their all, and succeeded at it.


Covid kept us away from one another, as well as the performing arts. With things starting to look better, it’s a great time to get back to enjoying creative expressions. In case you need 10 reasons to do so, here is a list. The arts are also a necessity for improving the quality of your life, and here is a great article that explains why.  

Don’t hesitate: go and experience Teatro ZinZanni before the curtain drops. Here is a link to tickets for the Chicago show. I suggest avoiding the first tables around the inner circle if you want to avoid lots of interaction with the performers. The best seats are the second and third rows. Dress up, leave your worries at home, and go enjoy a memorable evening. You deserve it.

What is Patch Management? 

If you’re a CTS Computer Care customer, CTS is responsible for your patch management, but we don’t often talk about what that means. “Patches” are small software updates that are used to correct a problem within an operating system or software program. Still confused? The first half of this video provides a great, easy to understand explanation. In patch management, a person or device looks for system patches, decides whether they’re needed, and makes sure they’re installed and implemented smoothly. This may sound simple, but in reality, it is a very complicated job. Sometimes, patches can cause more issues than they solve and shouldn’t be applied. Other times, they are time-sensitive and essential to your device’s security. Interested in learning more? This article breaks it down nicely.

National Skip the Straw Day

If you’re still using plastic straws in 2022, what are you doing? Skip the Straw Day is February 25th and it is a reminder that we don’t actually need a single-use plastic tube to enjoy our beverages. Reusable straw options are plentiful, paper straws are a great alternative, and drinking straight from your cup is always an option. Living eco-friendly can seem daunting, but skipping straws is a great, easy step towards that goal.

Digital Marketing for Older Audiences

We often think of digital marketing as a way to reach younger audiences, but the reality is that the majority of the population – including older generations – spend a great deal of time online looking at emails, social media, and more. That said, digital marketing for Gen Z looks very different from digital marketing for Boomers. This article has some great tips on how to make your company’s outreach more attractive to people over 50.

National Toast Day

We’re not here to ask you how dark you like your toast… such questions are far too loaded and can cause quite the controversy. Rather, we’re here to tell you that National Toast Day is celebrated on the last Thursday in February and this year, it takes place on February 24. This holiday pays homage to a food that is oft-ignored but has an oh-so-important role to play when it comes to breakfast, brunch, or even snacking purposes. The art of making toast is brilliant in both its simplicity and the variety of ways in which one can end up with toast. It’s a physical marvel too when one thinks of how different bread and toast are, despite them technically being the same thing. Check out this list of fancy toast recipes for some celebratory inspiration!
