Need a Patch Day

Need a PatchPatch Day

Need A Patch  Day is a good example of the different applications of how patches can be used that don't involve a needle and thread. Quite simply, it is a day in which we should sit back and celebrate the humble patch in all its forms. You may be wondering what sort of patch there is that does not require a needle and thread. The answer is that it is every single type of patch that you can imagine: from patches in clothes, nicotine patches, patches for tires, patchwork quilts and the one patch that relates to our business of Website Design; computer programming.

I like the definition provided by Technopedia; which is defined as a software update comprised of code inserted or( patched ) into the code of an executable program. Typically, a patch is installed into an existing software program. Patches are often temporary fixes between full releases of a software package. In general patches may do any of the following: fix software bugs, install new drivers, address new security issues, and finally upgrade the software. Patches have become extremely important as a methodology for updating programs or new system security threats which appear regularly, especially in online environments. Formerly patches were installed manually. Today automatic updates are very popular and are available as self-installing packages from the software vendors' support pages at their website.

If you are a new or small business I recommend checking with your website designer regarding any changes you need to make to your website. Know and trust the abilities of this person or company so that you get the full run down of how your website is operating/performing. I would choose the designer willing to take some time giving you explanations as to what is going on with your site. Avoid doing it yourself unless you are well versed in computer code and programming. Join networking groups to find these people as they usually are available for questions you may have which may lead you into the right direction. Familiarize yourself with the Social Media resources that can connect you to the sources you are seeking for your business growth.

Happy searching.
