BirdDog Version 4.0

BirdDog™ Information Systems is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.0 of Remote Data Retrieval. This newest system, to which you automatically have access when you log into our host site, provides enhanced features that are certain to make you even more productive... such as a more streamlined and intuitive user interface, the ability for end-users to perform ad hoc changes to alarm settings, and layered administration. With layered administration, end-user organizations can assign BirdDog client administrators who, in turn, will be able to add/delete other enterprise users, set each user's rights (from read-only through full editing, including use of Demand Polling), reset user passwords, add/delete Morning Report recipients, and much more.

In addition to the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system functional enhancements, we've also deployed new security provisions to further complement our previously implemented use of an HTTPS website to provide full SSL encryption of your sensitive and proprietary information. These enhancements include the use of unique email addresses as User IDs, as well as stronger Password requirements with history restrictions and forced routine changes. As before, with just a single account User ID and Password, your log-in will provide direct access to all BirdDog SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) systems to which you have end-user rights. And as you add or remove systems from your user profile, the single sign-on process will automatically recognize those changes.

BirdDog Security Policy Change Alert

Security Policy Change Alert - For the enhanced security of BirdDog™ Information Systems users, effective November 11, 2013, User IDs will be unique email addresses and account password requirements will be strengthened. New passwords will need to be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least one each of the following characters: uppercase alphabetical; lowercase alphabetical; numeric; and “special” (such as @, &, _, #, etc.). At the appropriate time, you will be prompted during your BirdDog log-in to click on a webpage link that will provide more details and guide you through your password change process.

The Rig Count is Rising...and so are Outdoor Temperatures
Date: 7/25/2017

Whether you’re working outside in the oilfields or in your family backyard, it’s summertime again and, to quote the Glenn Frey song from the movie Beverly Hills Cop, "The Heat is On!"  That’s why we think that it’s extremely important to again remind everyone just how dangerous heat illnesses can be and how you can recognize and prevent heat related incidents.
 
As we all know, the human body primarily cools itself by sweating and having that sweat evaporate.  If sweating is not sufficient to meet the body’s cooling needs, heat-related illness can occur.  This group of disorders covers a variety of conditions with minor symptoms, such as prickly heat or heat rash, progressing to heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and, finally, to heat stroke…a serious, life threatening condition.
 
It’s vitally important to know the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke whenever working in a hot environment, whether indoors or outside.  With heat exhaustion, individuals tend to have symptoms such as profuse sweating, weakness, muscle cramps, headache, nausea, and vomiting.  If these symptoms occur, find a cool place to rest and maintain proper hydration with water, electrolyte solutions, or sports drinks.  If vomiting or nausea prevents rehydration, seek medical attention immediately.
 
By comparison, heat stroke is a very serious progression beyond heat exhaustion.  The medical definition of heat stroke is a core body temperature greater than 104 degrees Fahrenheit.  Symptoms of heat stroke include those of heat exhaustion in addition to a distinct absence of sweating, confusion, disorientation or staggering, seizures, and fainting.  If you suspect someone is experiencing heat stroke, call 911 or immediately transport the person to a hospital or aid facility.  Heat stroke can be fatal.  To properly treat the symptoms of heat stroke, refer to the very informative article found at WebMD by clicking here.
 
As always, remember that your health and safety is of paramount importance!  Stay cool…and be safe!!
 
"The thing with heat is, no matter how cold you are, no matter how
much you need warmth, it always, eventually, becomes too much."
~ Victoria Aveyard, American Writer
