Wow, is it 2011 already?

My last post on here was around six weeks ago, and it feels like that time has passed in the blink of an eye. We had the coldest December on record here in the UK (for a change) so my attentions were drawn away from the world of energy saving, software deployment and data centres. Instead it was a case of trying to look after a lot of chilly pigs, freezing water pipes and snow covered cows, while curing bacon and making (what seemed like) never ending festive sausages for the hungry locals..

Anyway, as I finally fixed my last burst water trough yesterday, and my first sow of the year provided me with eight healthy piglets, it feels like Spring is just around the corner. Or perhaps not. But whatever the weather, it’s a New Year, so lets hope it’s an extra special one.

As we enter a new decade, it would be easy enough to take somewhat of a downbeat view of things with oil and energy prices on the rise, food prices their highest ever and some economies looking as wobbly as a new-born Bambi. Here at 1E however, I think that we view such times as nothing but a huge opportunity. Every business in the world can do more in 2011 to save energy, carbon, time and costs, and we’re here to help you along the way. Expect exciting product developments, great parties, fun and much much sunshine wherever you are in the world. Just another average 1E year really!

Personally I’m looking forward to blogging about some exciting technologies within systems management, energy efficiency and a host of other topics as yet undiscovered. So here’s to a successful 2011, and hopefully a lovely long, warm Summer..

Oh, and if I throw in a picture of cute pigs I always seem to get some nice comments so here are the new arrivals..
