Posted: 30 Dec 2008 01:13 PM CSTSending e-mail that looks good is a reflection of your professionalism. An e-mail that is properly written not only makes you look good, but is easier for your recipients to read which will win you lots of points with that individual. Finally, if you send an e-mail that looks good, you also look like you know your way around the computer and the Internet.
Here are some tips to writing a winning e-mail: 1. MANY READERS DON'T LIKE ALL CAPS. IT'S HARD TO READ AND SEEMS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING 2. use punctuation its hard to read stuff that doesn't have any commas capital letters periods or apostrophes 3. Usee yur spall chacker. Its annyang to try to reede constent spalling misstakes. 4. When forwarding an e-mail to someone, copy and paste what you want to send into a new e-mail then send it off. This is especially true if you had to arrow down through tons of "layers" with speech to actually get to the message of the e-mail. 5. Be courteous enough to use BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) when forwarding an email to everyone in your address book. You don't want to send your friends' addresses around the net. 6. Avoid embedding sounds or using "stationary" in your messages. I know it's cute and we're guilty of showing you how to do it, but they take longer to download and can be annoying to your recipient. Additionally, when your recipient responds to your e-mail, they may have to re-format their text (especially color ) in order for it to be readable. 7. Remember that attachments over 50k are annoyingly long to download, possibly causing your recipient's connection to "time-out", or the email could even be blocked. Try to keep those files manageable! 8. Re-read your e-mail message before you send it out. I don't know how many times I thought I had everything just right then found something that was way out of place when I re-read the document. 9. When replying to a message, don't quote back the entire message if you are just responding to one or two points. Just include what you are responding to. 10. Finally, don't use short hand. Stuff like "r u going to stp by ltr" can be hard to read. Don't B lzy, typ the whole wrd.Well, I guess that's about it. I know that I occasionally commit an e-mail transgression (I think we all do), but maybe these guidelines will help everyone communicate a little better.
Greasing Baking Pans <http://feeds.feedburner.com/%7Er/FredsHeadCompanion/%7E3/498829068/greasing-baking-pans.html>
Posted: 30 Dec 2008 01:12 PM CSTWhen you need to grease a baking pan, try using a stick of butter. Take the butter from the refrigerator. Loosen the paper from one end only. You can hold the stick by the end with the paper still wrapped. Rewrap the stick and return it to the refrigerator for later use. The butter flavor adds an extra nice touch to many foods.
Note: This technique will work with any product (such as shortening or margarine) that comes in sticks.

Posted: 30 Dec 2008 01:11 PM CSTAccording to our anonymous friends at Wikipedia, the term "w00t" is a slang interjection used to express happiness or excitement, usually over the Internet.
Woot.com is an online shopping site that sells one name-brand electronics item a day at insanely cheap prices, hence the site's "one day, one deal" motto. The only catch is that the site has extremely limited quantities. You snooze, you lose.
You may find a digital camera one day, a data projector the next, and a DVD-burner the day after that. That's one of the cool things about woot: You have no idea what the site is going to offer next. Even if you never buy anything at woot, the site's product descriptions are downright hysterical as is the FAQ.
Screen readers will have no problems accessing the site, they even ask for suggestions to improve accessability. The site also offers a daily RSS feed.
