Why It’s Important To Reboot Your Computer (And Yourself!)

Submitted by Dan Faraldo in Customer Service, Industry News

We all could use a reboot now and again, couldn’t we? It’s important to be able to recharge and refresh in order to take on new challenges. When we burn ourselves out, it becomes much harder to complete daily tasks and achieve our business goals. At MeloTel, we think it’s fair to say that taking a vacation can actually be good for your business.

Our Founder and CEO, John Meloche sure thinks so!

That’s why he’s about to embark on a family vacation for the ages! Allow us to take this opportunity to inform you that between June 28th and July 22nd, John will be away from the MeloTel office. Rest assure that the MeloTel team will be readily available to answer any questions and handle any issues that may arise in John’s absence.

Simply email support@melotel.com with your question or concern and a member of our team will respond as soon as possible. If you wish to contact John directly, please note that he will be returning all of his messages within two to three days of his return from vacation. We’re confident that he will be re-energized and ready to take MeloTel to new heights!

As you’re likely aware, our company’s success in reaching new heights is found in the success of our clients. This is why every member of our team is dedicated to ensuring that the services MeloTel provides are functioning at maximum capacity. One of the ways to ensure that your systems are always working at their best is to reboot them regularly.

It’s time for a reboot!

Just like vacations can reboot ourselves, your systems need little mini vacations of their own. Rebooting your computer every night, for example, is a great way to rid yourself of any potential system issues. On Lifehacker.com, Thorin Klosowski explains the benefits of restarting your computer on a daily basis.

“Essentially, when you restart your computer you’re clearing off the current state of your software and starting over again,” he writes, “You’re basically dumping out the junk and starting over again fresh. This includes whatever problems you’ve run into.” Thomas McNish agrees. On Chron.com, he writes that rebooting your computer is a great way to help it run faster.

“Your computer’s random access memory (RAM) is also known as volatile memory, because it’s constantly in flux — as opposed to solid-state memory, such as your hard drive,” he explains, “Your RAM handles lots of different short-term tasks and data, like running processes and holding program values. Rebooting your computer flushes out all this information, allowing your device to start anew and helping it run faster and more efficiently.”

Doesn’t it feel good to start anew?

Consider the fact that tomorrow marks the official start of summer. It’s a fresh new season that will hopefully bring your business a fresh new start. If there’s any way that MeloTel can help your company to reboot, refresh and restart to enjoy greater success, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
