TLRCS Shifts Focus

This post outlines some changes here at TLR Consulting Services. Effective immediately, TLRCS has transfered support and hosting for our client websites to our long-time partner, TradeWeb, Inc. TLRCS has worked with TradeWeb for nearly twenty-five years, and thus have a close relationship with the founder/president, Bill Harris and his son, Chris. In fact, our client websites have been hosted on a leased server at TradeWeb from the beginning, so everything will remain in place and will not change. Two things have prompted this change: First, I have taken on the responsibility of teaching full-time at Reynolds Mountain Christian Academy in Asheville.

According to net neutrality, high volume users would be charged the same amount as low volume users. Currently, many national carriers charge extra fees for users who surpass a set amount of bandwidth usage (i.e., users who stream video from Netflix, Amazon or other online entertainment providers). Likewise, service providers with high bandwidth usage (Netflix for example) are...

IBM Scores Breakthrough In Chip Components

BBC reported today that IBM (USA) has “overcome technical hurdles threatening to delay the manufacture of silicon chips with the smallest components so far.” The article states that IBM has developed a process to produce components 7nm in size (about the size of a red blood cell) and can successfully stack them in a chip so they do not interfere with each other. According to IBM, reported BBC, “an entire chip made using 7nm components would about 20 billion transistors.” Miniaturization at this level opens the door for more processing power in much smaller spaces. With the IOT (Internet of Things) gaining steam, technology of this type will mean more intelligent appliances, automobiles, houses….the field is wide open. Read the full article here:...
