This upcoming Friday is a National Get Over It Day. Celebrate every year on March 9th, it perfectly lands on a Friday this week and is a great way to enter the weekend, getting over everything that happened during the week and starting the weekend without thinking of that email that didn't get sent, the upgrade that may have not gone perfectly, or the million and one things that are still on your punch list. Get over it on Friday to be mentally prepared to work it on Monday.  


Did You Know

On March 5, 1975, the Homebrew Computer Club held its first meeting. An early computer hobbyist group in Silicon Valley started by Gordon French and Fred Moore, the Homebrew Computer Club members met from March 5, 1975 to December 1986 to get together and work on making computers more accessible to everyone. The open exchange of ideas from its biweekly meetings and the club newsletter helped launch the personal computer revolution. Members included Steve Wozniak (Apple), Harry Garland and Roger Melen (Cromemco), and Bob Marsh (Processor Technology).


Have a great week and keep networking!
