This Week in Review – Edition #2

Some news from the Home Front! This week Sharon’s Report Techafina went through yet another design overhaul. What can I say, I’m indecisive! If you read site updates from your RSS Reader and haven’t been to the site in a while, this is a good time to check it out. Feel free to leave comments about the changes. And, since I’m STILL not sure if I like the design, if you do, or don’t, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

In addition to the site redesign, I have now added a Contact Form page so I can be reached easily without sharing my email address with spammers. As a side-note, the workaround with Blogger to have extra “pages” on your blog is to simply create a new post, and link to that post. I used that method to create the contact form “page”, but back dated it to the end of July so it wouldn’t appear as a recent post. Unfortunately, FeedBurner still published it as a feed as though it were a new post (so that should help clear up any confusion you may have about receiving that odd feed)! Also, it’s a Blogger tip for you if you just happen to be wondering how to do that, now you know how!

The portion above is now slightly irrelevant, as I switched from Blogger to WordPress. Why? I’ll explain that in another post… (8/31/08)

Now, without further ado, here are some great things moving and shaking around the ‘Net this week…

1. Cool Blog Find! TeleRead: Bring the E-Books Home, is a site focused on ebooks of course, in all it’s related context. If you read anything in digital format you’ll want to check out this site.

2.  As I admitted earlier this week, I am a proud owner of a new Kindle. With that in mind, I had to throw in a link for fellow Kindle owners! Check it out: Kindlerama, complete with Kindle Tips & Tricks, accessory reviews, and “how to” information.

3. Like random cool geeky blogs? Pixel Bits is definitely an “interesting” find. I may add this to my Blog Roll (if I ever set one up).

4. Haven’t had enough Twitter yet? Want to find more interesting folks to follow near you, or with similar interests? TwitterPacks is a Wiki just for that purpose. I found several cool people to add to my Twitter Network and even added myself to the Dallas section. Wiki’s can be quite handy…

5. This week my focus seems to have been on Security, so in keeping with that theme, here is a Beginner’s Guide to OpenID Phishing. Like the site owners, I do not in ANY WAY condone phishing in any form, but it is important to know that this exists and be informed.

6. And, You’re No One if You’re Not on Twitter, because

“…if you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged, you might as well not have existed…”  This is a seriously catchy tune by Ben Walker.

That takes care of this week, I hope you all have had a wonderful Holiday weekend!

    Good students are always aiming at high grades for their essays at school, college or university. With the increasing speed of development all over the world, every student is required to join the race of progress with the same pace. Teachers, instructors and lecturers put great burden of modernism and swiftness on students by assigning them various academic tasks such as essays, term papers, research papers, stories, theses and other educational activities, which are supposed to be submitted in a very short and unmanageable period of time. These essays must be of high quality and non-plagiarized. Such situation generates a number of difficulties in students' life when writing an essay. Sometimes big tasks are expected to be completed within a very close deadline.
