A HTML table is a layout method for tabular information. A database table stores records with a particular topic theme, e.g. People.

A tablet is a hand-held mobile computing device, usually with a relative large screen (in comparison to a smartphone) which may / may not have a keyboard. An iPad is an example of a tablet. Tablets are becoming a popular replacement for laptops.

People will sometimes present the purchase price of an item as the only cost when determining the cost benefit. However, there are often other consts to consider.

For example, you could pay £680 for a laptop, however, that laptop also needs support, maintenance, updates and later disposal. Each of these cost money. The total cost of ownership (TCO) will include all of these.

An alternative could be a leased laptop with support, maintenance, updates and later disposal (e.g. return) all inclusive. Over the expected lifetime of the laptop, the total cost of ownership could therefore be less.

Taking the TCO into account therefore enables you to make a more informed decision, with less risk.


When you ask someone to work on an activity, you should always negotiate a reasonable turnaround time, and document that for future reference. The activity then become time-bound, and the activity owner will be expected to complete on time. You should make it clear that, if the activity is likely to not be delivered on time, that you should be told about this as soon as possible, not at the last minute - since the later your are notified, the more serious the impact is likely to be. When chasing a time-bound activity, it should be made clear the impact of the activity not being delivered on time. For example, activities which depend on the time-bound activity, will start late, and the resources for those activities will further need to confirm their availability at a new time.

Everyone appears to be time poor these days. They are so overloaded with work that, when they promise to do something, they don't deliver. Or will deliver late, and only after prompting. You may be in this position yourself, despite your best efforts. If you are time poor, you should ensure that you are using effective time management techniques to maximize on the output of your efforts. If you are trying to deal with someone who is time poor - try to remain calm on patient about it. It is rarely caused by an issue that the person has with you.

A timesheet can be used to record time spent on various business activities. It is often essential when working on projects which require cross-charging, or charge back to a client. A timesheet can also be a way of improving productivity by ensuring all time is attributed to an activity. Entries can then be challenged if they appear to be excessive or not required. 

webBRIEFCASE can provide off-the-shelf and custom timesheet solutions. Please contact us for details.
