Merry Christmas from Brian Becker

Here we are only a few days from Christmas and 2016 and I have this overwhelming urge to say thank you to everyone who uses Bluff Technologies, Inc. and

I’m the only remaining employee of So when customers call in they talk with me. That’s a far cry from 10 years ago when Poplar Bluff Internet had 50 employees working 24/7.

As I write this, I’m in Nashville because my oldest son, Ben, has a recording session this afternoon for two of his songs. But, with the wonders of technology, our phone system tracks me down and I can still work no matter where I am (though the hold times might be a little longer today and tomorrow). Anyway, I just got off a support call with a customer and we had a good laugh at the end of the call. And I was once again reminded how much I appreciate everyone who’s stuck with over these tumultuous years.

I want to say, “Merry Christmas. And may the Peace that passes all understanding, the Joy that was transmitted through a small infant, and the Comfort which soothes the most painful of hearts…be yours, truly yours, this Christmas.”
