We’ve been contacted by a number of clients inquiring as to why they received emails today, apparently from Google Webmaster Tools, stating that their WordPress installations are out of date when they are in fact running the most current version of WordPress (3.1.3 as of June 18, 2011). We have no additional information as to why Google is sending these mails, which we support in principle, however they appear to be inaccurate as our client sites are all upgraded to WordPress 3.1.3.
The text of the mail appears below. These can be disregarded and we will update this page with additional information as it becomes available.

Peter Ubriaco, President of NYISI, was recently featured in an article by Metro called “Startups Bank on Google Apps“. NYISI uses many of the applications in the Google Apps suite, including Google Docs, Google Calendar, and the venerable Gmail for Domains.
Using Google Apps saves us hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars in infrastructure and software licensing costs. We can even set up Google Apps for your organization, like we recently did for a client.
But with any transition comes some gains and losses. Our client immediately noticed one important thing was missing from Google Apps – desktop alerts. They were used to seeing Outlook pop up an alert window whenever a new message arrives. One solution would have been to configure Outlook to retrieve the messages via POP instead of IMAP, but this is far from an ideal solution, since POP lacks the synchronization features that set IMAP apart. Also, we were trying to ween them off of Microsoft Outlook.
So, we created an app to replace the desktop alerts they were used to. We now present to you – Gmail Alerts, the easy solution to replace Outlook desktop alerts.

We work with computers all day, and so do many of our customers. We spend quite a bit of time each day copying and moving files, and with each repetition we found ourselves opening tons of new folder windows just so we could drag-and-drop files. We got tired of it! We’ve created an application to help make copying and moving files easier then ever.
Copy Shortcut Pro is the free, easy solution to enable right-click “copy to” and “move to” options in Windows XP and Windows Vista. Check it out, and if you have any feedback, let us know!
