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.

Where does Santa Claus really live?
Date: 12/22/2015

For those of us who believe in Santa Claus, it's still very difficult to grasp the commonly accepted belief that he lives at the North Pole.  After all, the North Pole is the northernmost point on the earth, located in the center of the Arctic Ocean, and it's one of the coldest places on the planet aside from Antarctica.  So, does Santa Claus really live at the North Pole?  No one knows for sure, but evidence suggests that this is the most likely place for his headquarters.  Unsubstantiated rumors, however, indicate that he may live in other places, such as Lapland, Finland, or maybe even Greenland.  

Whether or not the North Pole is Santa's permanent residence, it's a place of interest throughout the world.  For example:
  • It's defined as the point in the Northern Hemisphere where the Earth's axis of rotation meets its surface.
  • There's life at the North Pole including birds, foxes, polar bears, whales, and humans, but no penguins; they live in Antarctica.
  • 30 percent of the world's untapped oil reserves are estimated to be near the North Pole within the Arctic Circle.
  • There's a North Pole Marathon every year.  
Santa Claus' home address may be a mystery forever and, for most of us, that only enhances the spirit of Christmas.   In the final analysis, it's entirely possible that Santa simply lives within each of us and, if so, all one has to do is believe. So, only you can really answer this age-old question:  Where do you think Santa lives?
