Maybe Canada should plant the worldâ€™s longest line of trees right along the inside of the border to hide the nasty looking fence.
Canada has just such a guide to put your idea into action Adam, aplty named Hedges for Canadian Gardeners. Written in 1980, College kids will love tree-planting along the border rather than planting in the mountains of BC during the summer. Send your sons and daughters away to Hedge-fund Camp where they will learn why:
It is important to note that hedging is actually the practice of attempting to reduce risk, but the goal of most hedge funds is to maximize return on investment.
At Hedge-Fund Camp we firmly believe in exposing your child to the latest Departmental Electronic Publication on Hedges that the Canadian Government has to offer. Here are some relevant excerpts from the publication: read more
Google have revamped their online RSS reader, called Google Reader, and weâ€™re talking totally! On a first glance it looks a lot better than the last time I checked out the service, but I really donâ€™t know since Iâ€™m not a Google Reader user. That might change, however â€“ I intend to give it a go in the upcoming weeks.
The launch post over at the official Google Reader blog spells it out for you, and gives you a video clip that tells the basics.
In other news, Bloglines are doing as little as possible. By that I mean that theyâ€™ve cut back on reloading the left frame which is nice, and now they check for feed updates more often. Works good enough for me, being a Bloglines user and all.
While nothing new, ads via RSS feeds arenâ€™t as widely used as regular ads on your site or blog. My guess itâ€™s because you donâ€™t really know how to handle it, itâ€™s a lot more of a bother to hack a RSS feed than just put some Adsense code in your sidebar.
I’m working hard on a CSS Tips and Tricks, Part 2 article but until then I’ll complain a little bit about a design mistake I see popping up.
Please…pretty please: stop using so many different fonts in the body of your website. As a general rule you should use exactly 2 fonts. If you’re really good at what you do and think you can use a 3rd font judiciously do so at your own risk. read more
Chris Kenworthy over at Forumtrends has observed that users browsing his dream.in.code site are three times more likely to click his Adsense link unit at the very top of the page than others. He reckons this is because of tabbed browsers keeps the usersâ€™ focus on the tabs, which is a pretty safe bet according to me.
Now, this is Chrisâ€™ observation and although itâ€™s a believable one it might not fit on the general public. It would be nice to hear if other site owners have had similar experiences…
So get your readers to use Firefox if you have ads at the top of your page. Or just wait until IE7 is out if youâ€™re really lazy.
Today Facebook has granted access to millions of users who were previously unable to register on their social network. Users no longer need to be registered under a school, company or the government in order to join, but can simply register with their own email address.
(Reuters) “We are expanding to respond to the requests of millions of people who want to be part of Facebook, but haven’t been able to until today,” Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook said in a statement.
Facebook said it has launched additional privacy controls with the expansion.
By having more users within Facebook, the company can justify its billion dollar offer to Yahoo! who seems desperate to enter in the social network arena.
Facebook is second only to MySpace in the social networking arena, and seventh in traffic according to comScore. But with its latest move, the question some experts are asking is, can Facebook overtake MySpace?
I didnâ€™t know this previously, but Bloglines can track your package online. UPS, FedEx and United States Postal Service has been available some time now, and now theyâ€™ve added DHL as well. Nifty to have it all in one place, and a good step to make tracking stuff (RSS feeds as well as packages) more accessible to surfers not so used to modern buzzword compliant technologies.
Now Iâ€™ll just have to order something from the States, donâ€™t I?
