BirdDog Version 4.0

BirdDog™ Information Systems is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.0 of Remote Data Retrieval. This newest system, to which you automatically have access when you log into our host site, provides enhanced features that are certain to make you even more productive... such as a more streamlined and intuitive user interface, the ability for end-users to perform ad hoc changes to alarm settings, and layered administration. With layered administration, end-user organizations can assign BirdDog client administrators who, in turn, will be able to add/delete other enterprise users, set each user's rights (from read-only through full editing, including use of Demand Polling), reset user passwords, add/delete Morning Report recipients, and much more.

In addition to the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system functional enhancements, we've also deployed new security provisions to further complement our previously implemented use of an HTTPS website to provide full SSL encryption of your sensitive and proprietary information. These enhancements include the use of unique email addresses as User IDs, as well as stronger Password requirements with history restrictions and forced routine changes. As before, with just a single account User ID and Password, your log-in will provide direct access to all BirdDog SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) systems to which you have end-user rights. And as you add or remove systems from your user profile, the single sign-on process will automatically recognize those changes.

BirdDog Security Policy Change Alert

Security Policy Change Alert - For the enhanced security of BirdDog™ Information Systems users, effective November 11, 2013, User IDs will be unique email addresses and account password requirements will be strengthened. New passwords will need to be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least one each of the following characters: uppercase alphabetical; lowercase alphabetical; numeric; and “special” (such as @, &, _, #, etc.). At the appropriate time, you will be prompted during your BirdDog log-in to click on a webpage link that will provide more details and guide you through your password change process.

Crawin for the Cure 2012 another Big Success
Date: 5/22/2012

Coastal Flow Measurement is proud to announce the tremendously successful results of our Second Annual "Crawin' for the Cure" crawfish boil to benefit the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The fun-filled event was held on May 5th at the Jimmy Burk Activity Center in Deer Park, Texas. With more than 2,500 pounds of crawfish, live music by the Easy Money Band, dancing, games, and a silent auction, we more than doubled the proceeds from last year's event by raising over $14,000 for this outstanding cause!

This year's success is a direct result of the generous outpouring of support from the community, those families who are affected by CF, all of our volunteers, and the wonderful companies and individuals who generously sponsored "Crawin' for the Cure." Their contributions, combined with Coastal Flow's previous fundraising efforts, have allowed us to raise $65,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so farand we're not done yet!

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 people in the U.S. alone, making it one of the most common life-shortening inherited conditions despite its classification as an Orphan Disease (one which affects a relatively small population). Today, thanks to continued foundation-supported research and specialized care, the median age of survival is almost forty years, more than double that of just a generation ago.

While CF is devastating to the families battling this disease, recent clinical trials of a new drug (VX-770) have produced incredible results in actually treating the basic genetic defect for approximately 4% of the CF patient population a true cure. We were proud to witness these results first-hand with an amazing family whose children have their lives back because of this new treatment. This brings significant hope that a similar approach to treatment may help bring a cure to the majority of patients living with CF.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF), in conjunction with the medical community and pharmaceutical industry, maintains a non-stop effort to pursue development of the means to control and someday fully cure Cystic Fibrosis, and to improve the quality of life for those afflicted with this chronic, debilitating disease.

Thanks, again, to all of our friends who helped make our second annual "Crawin' for the Cure" so successful. We look forward to continuing our fund-raising efforts, and to seeing everyone again at next year's event!!
