Always on the road!
Time flies when you are having fun! At FPM3 we have had an amazing summer, great projects, and a lot of work to do. This past Thursday, August 30th we had the opportunity to share with our friends at North Bay, ON, our famous (and convenient) Mingle Day. It was a great opportunity to shoot some amazing Mingles with Adrian Konstant and Andre O’Bonsawin; and our new clients were very excited and pleased with the quality of job and money they saved! We want to bring Mingle Day closer to you and because of that we are always on the road! You can find out more about Mingle Days by visiting our website at themingle.net, subscribing to our Newsletter on fpm3.com, or simply ‘liking’ our The Mingle® Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Mingle/246989568738494 I’ll be posting the dates there just remember there will be a Mingle Day closer to you soon! …

While the majority of our web department have Windows running on their machines, it’s important for us to keep know how this is going to effect their machines if we do consider upgrading the programmers/web developer’s tools; so let’s take a look at some of the feature Windows 8 has…

This page has me (Adam Oldfield) helping the troops outline how the fpm3.com website is being designed and built!
