The Many Wonderful Uses For Notepad

I think notepad is very handy and use it for a lot things and I also use my web server to store a lot of these notes. Upload using FTP but be sure to place over the public_html or home directory so they are not publicly accessible. This is a handy back up and the notes are available to any computer I am using. However when these text files are downloaded from the web server the line breaks appear as small squares and the lines do not break. If you open these up in Microsoft Wordpad and save them, they will go back to normal with the line breaks where you had put them.

One very handy use for notepad is as a log or journal of events. If you open notepad and put a period and in uppercase letters the word LOG on the top line on the left with no spaces. Now each time you open that notepad the date and time will be at the top of your entry. You can also just press F5(while using notepad) from you top rows of keys. These are sometimes called command keys. -> Read more

The link to your home page is the most important link on your page

That’s right the most important link on your website is the link to your home page. For clarity it should be called home, nothing else. For visitors that have not visited your site before you have to make it clear as possible how to get to pages. If the link to the home page is always visible no matter where they are they can always get back to where they started. If you are struggling to understand something this is a tremendous psychological boost.
If people are comfortable with your website they may revisit it or buy your products. Most people will not buy or revisit a website if they have trouble navigating the pages.
