Tnetmail to Gmail Sign-In Transition

You may have noticed…

You may have noticed a change in the way you sign into your spam-filtered email account.  Our normal Tranquility-branded sign-in page is now being redirected to Gmail’s sign-in page.  This is a change Google has been rolling out to every business customer, and it is consistent for all users as of March 1, 2014.

New Gmail login screen for Tranquility e-mail users

This change will not affect your email address, inbox, contacts, or any other aspect of your spam-filtered Tranquility email account.  The only change will be to the way in which you sign in.

Previously, you simply had to enter your username and password to sign in.  In the future, you will need to enter your full tnetmail.net address.  In general, this will be your username followed by @tnetmail.net.  For example:

If you’ve previously logged in with:

Username: johnsmith
Password: hunter2

You must now log in with:

Username: johnsmith@tnetmail.net
Password: hunter2

Note that your password will not change.  In the event this username does not work, your account may have a unique configuration – don’t hesitate to give us a call at 573-443-3983 and one of our technical support staff will be able to assist you.

Boone County Fire Protection District: A Helping Hand.

IMG_6083_cropped

In the early 60’s, just west of Columbia, there was a fire that claimed the house and life of an old woman. At the time, there was no official fire protection outside the city of Columbia, People were taking notice, and people wanted to help.

The Start of It All

It was a group of CB radio enthusiasts who endured the agony of the situation, unable to provide qualified help, and became determined to offer fire and rescue protection to the citizens outside the city limits. Pat Barnes, one of the founders of the Boone County Fire Protection District, was one of these CB enthusiasts. He gathered others and together they formed the Central Missouri Radio Squad, which later became the Boone County Volunteer Fire Department. In 1970, by a citizens’ vote, the Boone County Fire Protection District was officially formed.

Wireless and Your Health.

mobile devices 2New technology always has its naysayers. With the rapidly growing amount of wireless technology available, many people fear what it could be doing to their health.

Mobile and wireless devices emit radiation – that’s a scientific fact. What we don’t know is how much radiation our bodies are receiving from this technology.

What the Experts Have to Say

On one hand, some scientists claim to have found evidence saying wireless devices are harmful, but on the other hand it’s harder to find evidence saying something isn’t harmful. You’d be trying to prove that something doesn’t exist, which is harder than proving that something does. The World Health Organization has concluded that there isn’t enough evidence to confirm these health fears.
