E-mail Print PDF

Show Networks and Control Systems by John HuntingtonIf you think you have a handle on control networks, good for you. Computer networking is a big field of study, with a wide range of certifications and career opportunities for those who can keep all the bits and bytes straight when it comes to digital connectivity.

Network administration and configuration is not for the faint of heart, however. With today’s systems, it takes more than just the right IP address and gateway setting.

The Capitol Theatre: Restored Grandeur for a Legendary Landmark

E-mail Print PDF

The restored Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NYIt’s a familiar story, told countless times all over America. A 1920s-era theater starts life as a magnet for movie-goers, shifts with the times to become a famed concert venue, but falls on tougher times as the economy and entertainment models continue to shift. After years of under-use, it becomes a banquet hall or civic gathering space.
