I particularly enjoyed reading up on the author’s experiences with a bad hosting company. I can relate, having run into serious problems with some Italian outfit in 1998.
Mr. Ghazi, the webmaster, had a horrible experience with one hosting company (which he names). The result is that he has come up with a list of ten rules to follow when signing up with a hosting service. The rules are good, common sense.
So browse the site, see if you can find the tweak that will make your life run a little better.
Experience the thrill of motorless flight over the beautiful Tennessee countryside and ridges. Admire the Hiawassee River from thousands of feet in the air as you go up like a bird in a warm thermal. On some days you can fly the ridgeline at awesome speeds. Other times you can take hold of the controls with your pilot and feel what it is like to fly a glider through the various air currents that sustain free flight. These are all the joys of soaring at the Chilhowee Gliderport.
Now is that a cool activity, or what? I never even thought about going on a glider flight! And this gal has been doing this since the late 1970’s!
The price is a very reasonable $160 to get a tow to 5,000 feet and enjoy a silent glide savoring the beautiful Tennessee scenery.
You can also receive training to become a glider pilot yourself.
There are lots of neat glider and scenery pics, and also some neat accounts of gliding experiences.
So get your tow,cut loose, and soar the thermals with today’s FamilyFirst site!

So if you are looking for information on a certain person, whether in this millennium or the last (or even several millenium’s ago), this is the site for you. Be sure to bookmark it, as it can be a valuable resource for you or a student you know.
The name of the site is AdsenseChat.com, a forum for the web’s AdSense publishers to discuss the Google AdSense program. This site is free to join, free to register and free to discuss AdSense with other users… for now. The owners will be implementing a subscription-based service soon, so I recommend joining while the price is right. If you are a web site publisher and use AdSense, this site provides a vast resource for learning from the experiences of others. Your messages will be read by thousands of visitors, so don’t be afraid to ask a question.
Since AdSense publishers make money whenever a visitor clicks an ad on their web site, members in these forums discuss the best ways to implement and display Google Ads on their pages. Sites are critiqued and opinions are given, providing users with a “think tank” of sorts. As of this writing, the site has nearly 1000 members and I suspect that will increase dramatically as the number of AdSense publishers continues to increase.
It seems that the more technology changes, the more it remains the same. Sharing information with fellow users who have common interests is part of what makes the Internet so much fun. As much as the Internet has changed this type of communication, it will be interesting to see how much more it will change in the future.
The site is called “The Interview With God”. The site is is part of the Get Inspired Now series which includes Pathways to Peace, and other spiritual and uplifting messages. Their goal is to create beautiful, inspiring presentations that make a positive difference in the lives of millions of people around the world.
Their mission statement is “In a world of uncertain times, we strive to be a gentle reminder that we are not alone. Our mission is to make a positive contribution to the well-being of our world, and to be a major and measurable force for good on the World Wide Web, by creating experiences of inspiration that warm the heart and touch the soul.” In viewing this site, it reminds one of the message of the above movie, that there is an all-present, all-loving God, who will always love and never forsake us.
I won’t quote the interview here, since that would spoil your visit to the site. The interview is also presented with the latest Macromedia 7 technology, using some very beautiful photograhs. You can share your testimonial with others, and also see how this site has impacted and changed their lives.
“Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed for I am your God.”

The name of the site is called Extreme iPod. It is a site that is maintained by Ziff-Davis Media. The purpose of the site is to help users to customize, optimize, and maximize their iPod experiences. The site features reviews, news, tips, and free stuff area. Their reviews are well written and easy to understand. They also have some unique twists to them. One of the current ones tells about the experience of getting a 40gb iPod for 1/2 price at an electronics store, and the experiences he had making it work. The free stuff area has some good utilities, such as one called Copy Pod. It allows you to download your iPods contents to your computer before you have to send it in for repair, or if you have used the system updater.
The are some interesting stories as well. Such as the user who took four iPod shuffles and made them into a RAID array. )Neat trick, I would just like to know where he was able to find FOUR shuffles, as I haven’t been able to find any). The section on Hack is great if you are techie minded user, as is the Download section. The Add-Ons area has the latest accessories information.
This site is well maintained, but it is a little more than a fan site since it is maintained by a professional publication. But the information contained here is quite good, and the presentation format makes it easy to read and navigate the site.
The site we look at today is for Sena Cases, one of the best all around PDA case makers that I have found. They have managed to find that niche where they turn out a quality product, for a price that would send you away with your head shaking. They feature cases for just about every current model of PDA (and some older ones as well). They are available in a variety of colors and designs, and you can get both belt clip versions and non-belt clip ones. They are also starting to feature cases for the Apple and HP Ipod MP3 players. They have just released a series of new models for the new HP Ipaq series, and are currently developing a series of cases for new Blueberry models.
So if you are looking for a quality PDA case, you have my highest recommendation for the Sena cases. I have used several of them, and have been nothing but satisfied.
The site is called AnandTech, and is named after the editor-in-chief and CEO of the site. Here you can find out about the latest products that are available to consumers. Whether you are looking for a motherboard (as I was), or wanting to find out about the latest trend in what kind of ram you should put in your machine, you will find the information here. There are well written and easy to understand reviews, broken into different component areas. You can subscribe to updates that will notify you when new items are posted, as well as participate in online polls. One thing I really liked about the site was being able to write the author of an article about a motherboard he reviewed, and I purchased. He not only replied, but we exchanged information about our experiences with that particular board.
This is a great site to bookmark, and keep as a reference site. Who knows when you or someone you know will need it. Enjoy your visit here today.
