Upcoming Eclipse May Cause On-Site Delays

Posted by on in Alerts

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last year or so, you’re probably well aware that a total eclipse is hitting the US on August 21, 2017. Weston’s main office is in Bend, Oregon, which is very close to the path of totality. Central Oregon is expected to get a massive influx of visitors, possibly hundreds of thousands of folks or more (depending on which news story you read).

Weston’s offices will be open normal office hours throughout August. However, if your company is in Central Oregon and we need to make an on-site visit to your offices, there will likely be a delay on the days leading up to, during, and after the eclipse (August 17 through August 23) because of congestion on the roads. If it’s a regularly scheduled appointment, we may need to reschedule because of traffic delays (we will contact you to reschedule). Traffic is already starting to get busy within the city limits of Bend, likely to only get worse as we approach August 21.

If you have any questions or concerns, or if you already know that your office is going to be closed during the eclipse, please contact us at or giving us a call at (541) 383-2340.

Friday Fun: The History Of the IBM PC

Posted by on in Off Topic/Fun

Happy Friday! Today, we have a little tech history for you.

  • The IBM PC, which was the basis for all modern Windows PCs, has a fascinating history. Ars Technica goes into great detail on how the modern IBM-compatible PC came to be, with an in-depth two part article. 
  • And on the other side of the aisle, Macs have their own varied history. While for many years, they had proprietary innards, they now share many of the same internal components that PCs have. So how come you never see an Intel Inside sticker on a Mac like you do on most PCs with Intel processors, even though Macs have used Intel processors for years? That's a very interesting story as well.
