Evolution of Dog

A Digital(Bulldog) Evolution

It's 2020, the world has gone nuts, so here at Bulldog's Kennel we decided to deploy what little sanity remains on a new look for DigitalBulldog. Combining our red and blurple colour scheme with our traditional bulldog logo, we've created a stylish new look fit for the beginning of the 21st century's third decade. It's simpler, brighter, and a bit less "aggressive" than our traditional bulldog icon, and will feature prominently going forward in all our material, both online and print.

Bulldog thought it would be fun, now that this is finished, to highlight the evolution of DigitalBulldog's logos over the past 10 years. The slideshow below takes it from the hazy days of Bulldog S.I.T.S through DigitalBulldog IT & Web Support, to the current era,

Spotlight: Farleigh Dental website upgrade

Farleigh Dental website update, 03/10/2019

Farleighdental.co.uk, our first major build, went live in late 2013. Though the site had received some minor cosmetic tweaks in recent years, it was starting to look a little dated. DigitalBulldog upped the game for Farleigh Dental with a fresh new look and scheme for the site. Designed to compliment the practice's own current colour scheme, which was now very different from the original site theme, the rebuild went live in early October. Now mobile-friendly with a fully-featured mobile version, this build is intended to be the last legacy version for Farleigh Dental. Now, onwards to do the same for Farleigh Clinic!

Visit Farleigh Dental for all your family's dental needs.

Spotlight: RDS Decorating website upgrade

RDS Decorating website rebuild, 26/09/2019

While the new CMS-based site is still in the planning stages, we decided to give the existing RDS Decorating website a new lease of life. Most of the site's multiple pages have been condensed into a one-sheet style homepage, and the mobile-friendly variant was completely rebuilt from scratch. We also installed a more-secure better-protected message form to help prevent spam. The end result takes the RDS Decorating website into a more-modern more-professional era. Our client approves.

Disaffiliated and disenchanted

Heck 'em.

Decided to close our "DogShop" where until recently you could purchase Avira and Malwarebytes products via our affiliate links, which in turn was supposed to generate a small commission to help us run things. The affiliate service was provided by CJ (formerly "Commission Junction"), and we never made any money through them. This is because when you don't reach a certain target amount or make no commission for a month, they start charging a penalty fee until the balance is zero. Of course, when they keep taking money away, there's even less chance of reaching that mythical target amount, always going to be extra-difficult for a small business.

We won't contribute clicks towards that sort of business, and we will not support them. Heck 'em.

Who let the Dog out? part 2

Escaping the confines of the capital

It's done. DigitalBulldog IT & Web Services has escaped the concrete confines of old Londinium and has relocated to the greener pastures of central England.

Rest assured, we will continue to provide the same excellent level of service to our web and design clients as before.

MS Paint it Back

MS Paint saved as Microsoft backtracks on the fate of legendary program

MS Paint will live on. Microsoft announced further development of Paint would cease, and the app might be removed by future Windows updates. Although it will not be installed by default on future Windows editions, users can download the legendary program in the Windows Store, free of charge.

MS Paint, or just Paint, has been part of Windows since Windows 1.0 back in 1985. Paint 3D, a spiritual successor, will become part of Windows 10 with the 2017 "Fall Creators Update". Paint's demise, announced on July 24, created a huge rush of support on social media.

Malware – Know your nemesis

Malware - know your nemesis

Dogbot vs malworm

Malware, a portmanteau of "malicious" and "software", is an umbrella term for software applications and programs intended to cause disruption to computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts or active content (drive-by downloads), or as part of other seemingly-legitimate software. Some malware is disguised as genuine software, and may come from an official website in the form of a useful or attractive program which has the harmful malware embedded in it along with additional tracking software that gathers marketing statistics.

Backup the [bleep] up!

Backups - inconvenience vs heartbreak

Dogbot with backup drive

Have you done a backup today, or even this week? This month? Ever? In this article, we'll talk about the importance of backing up data to help protect against catastrophic loss, such as through a failed hard drive, malware attack, theft, or other unforeseen event. Bulldog's been there, many moons ago. He's a lot wiser now.

Backup essential files regularly

Imagine losing all the photos you stored on your computer. The music you've saved on the computer since offloading your entire space-hogging CD collection on eBay. Those precious home videos of your family and holidays, all suddenly no longer there. All your work, all your accounts, all those memories. All gone because you trusted your PC to keep everything safe for one more day. Because you kept putting off those backups until the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that. It applies just as much to work computers as those at home, as our experience has shown us that users all too often store personal files on computers at their place of work.

Scam email of the week

Scam emails - spotting the fakemail amongst the realmail

Scam emails. We've all had them. Scammers love to send out emails claiming to be from a legitimate company, often the big ones such as Google or Amazon. Can you spot the realmail from the fakemail? We saw this one that claims to be from Apple, stating that we needed to click a link to change our account information. Hmmm really? Well we don't even have an Apple account, so even if this was legit, it would be nonsense!

Here's what to look for:
