Spooky SpectorSoft

Last week was Halloween. I live in Massachusetts (near the New Hampshire border) and we got hit with a huge snowstorm that killed off power for more than half a week. We bolted to the Cape where there was enough power for my five-year-old to trick-or-treat as a bumblebee. Yesterday we had another Halloween since it was postponed in my hometown. And once again she was a bumblebee.

SpectorSoft wants it to be Halloween year round. The company's monitoring software has a variety of uses. The one they like to talk about the most is how monitoring can hunt down criminals such as mobsters, and stop cyber bullying and other sordid deeds.

The company is running a contest where IT submits their horror stories and a winner is chosen every quarter to win an iPad.

A plethora of horror stories have already been filed. Feel free to send me and SpectorSoft your stories. I'll be sure to protect your privacy as I publish letters with first names only.
