Notepad is a really great windows utility

Notepad is a really windows utility that I use several times every day. Notepad can be found in Windows accessories with paint and the calculator but I always keep a shortcut handy.
If you have some text with formatting such as from a word processor, you want to get rid of just paste it (ctrl-v)into notepad and then copy (ctrl-c)it back out. F5 will add the date but if you are keeping a journal of system events or something .LOG on the first line will automatically put the date there each time you open that notepad.

Blinder Vision

a better idea

In order to have a successful blog you need blinder vision, that ability to work every day without any reward. Just keep on working. In any successful endeavor you need to have a period of start-up when the work is great and the rewards are small. This is the time when it is hardest to work. You need to keep you eyes and mind focused on your goal and work on your blog every day. Set yourself a goal of at least one or two blog posts every day and achieve that goal.

Content Management Systems


A content management system (CMS) is a software package, which is written for a group of users to create content for a web site. This could be a community of users sharing information about a common topic. A CMS typically would contain a forum, a blog and articles. It would also contain databases to track users and their profiles. These profiles would contain information about users and what authority each had to make updates to the website. Content management systems are for creating communities of users. Drupal is the foremost CMS.

What is the biggest mistake you can make with your website?

Business people

The biggest mistake you can make is intentionally keep people from using your website. This usually is accomplished by forgetting your goal. Just about any goal you might have in mind involves the visitor not you. In the old days this might have been accomplished with a splash screen which required visitors to click before they could see your website. Now days this might be done with box or window that pops up in front of or obscures view of the website until the visitor enters some information to get a newsletter or something. All these things are for you and do nothing for your visitors, always put your visitors needs and wants first. Never put roadblocks that keep visitors accomplishing their purpose. Never prevent visitors from using your website. Otherwise all your time and money you have invested in your website is a complete waste.

The Future Of The Internet Software

Internet Software

In the future your home computer will only be used to access applications on the web. Your choice will be between web mail and web mail. All of your office applications, word processor, spread sheets; everything will hosted on the web. There will be no installing programs on your home computer. These programs will work much better because the company that writes that software will host them. Your computer will work much better because it won’t have the burden of all of these installed programs. -> Read more
