Worrying downward trend of high street retail

The news that hmv has called in the administrators follows the untimely demise of Comet and Jessops.

I remember the 80s for many things but the multi format wars of records and CDs and an ability to have my favourite song in a picture disc or posterbag was a highlight. A highlight that used to drive collectors down to their local HMV (or Bradley’s or virgin megastore)

Everyone can remember the various incarnations of the Frankie goes to Hollywood singles

that drove collectors to these stores and.undoubtedly drove sales and footfall t0 these stores, the subsequent decision by chart compilers to restrict choice by excluding multiple formats in the charts, had an ill thought side effect of restricting sales, whilst not suggesting there was a conspiracy the record companies should have thought this through properly.

Whilst it’s never been a better time to have an online presence I hope that retail high street stores will survive this awkward downturn.

Maintenance Modules added

Maintenance Modules.

Maintenance on any site is an important factor and we would consider it imperative for any site owner. Whether its a major corporation like Sony or Amazon or Government sites like the CIA everyone is at risk of being hacked or having their website vandalised by someone with the time and skills to do so. What Maintenance Module will do for you is help ensure you are as prepared as possible. Maintenance includes
– a sweep of your hosting to ensure no nasty files are lurking ready to hijack your files.
– your site has the latest version of the files on your site so any vulnerabilities have been detected and replaced.
– a scan to ensure  nothing it lurking that could potentially cause damage to your site
– Three packages we do a basic maintenance procedure which we recommend is carried out bi-monthly at the least. we offer another version which installs a backup system so your files are retrievable if the worst was to happen. We also offer a repair service if the worst happens and you want to get your site back to where it was
