While an email blast or press release will surely get the attention of most of the people you want to contact, undoubtedly there will be some who don’t get the message for one reason or another.

As Paradyne had not long ago implemented Exclaimer Cloud – Signatures for Office 365 and had been using the Banner field to promote our webinars and events – I chose to re-purpose this section to inform everyone we emailed about the impending change to our email address, due to our acquisition by Generation-e.

Ninja-cat becomes ninja-monkey

One of the things to make “Windows 10” cool was the advent of a ninja-cat riding a unicorn, because what’s cooler right?

(In my opinion nothing beats transforming robots from outer space, but I digress.)

Well now¬†the ninja-cat has been replaced with a ninja-monkey to celebrate Year of the Monkey. Windows 10 is also blazing a speedy path of upgrades given it’s been just over 6 months since it was released.

So in the spirit I thought I’d offer my own take on the ninja-something on a unicorn: Nigel Tufnel riding a flame-breathing unicorn with his own “version number”. Enjoy!
