Web design tips

  1. 1. Web_Design_Tips : Part IHow To Store And Find Information On Your ComputerDear Computer Lady,I am a stay at home mom with a home party plan business. I do a lot of training throughemails.My question and dilemma is this, when I receive an email I "move" it to a folder in my emailaccount. Is there a way to save that folder and its contents to my computer and burn thatinfo onto a cd or just have as a folder on my desktop?I refer to this information often and would like access to it quickly and readily.Thanks for your help and all your great emails, Jacqueline in Reno, NVDear Jacqueline,Moving e-mail messages in and out of your e-mail program is more involved than it wouldseem. This is because each message is contained in one larger file that your e-mailprogram maintains. When you drag a message to your desktop, it does become a separatefile, but you still need to have your e-mail program open to use the file, and putting thatmessage back into your e-mail program is not as easy as getting it out.I have experimented with saving messages over the years and have done everything fromsaving each one as a text file, to creating extensive folders in my email program.Since you want to have the information readily available on your desktop, and you said thatyou have a lot of information, I would suggest that you use a program that would not onlyallow you to easily organize your information, but also includes a great search function forthose times when you cant remember where you saved that bit of information that youneed.I use a great program called "Treepad Business Edition" for my information storage. I haveone file that I store articles for this newsletter in, and another that I use for traininginformation and answers to questions that my VeggieLight.com team members ask me. Ialso keep another file with information from online purchases so I can easily go back andfind receipts from online purchases.Treepad Business Edition allows me to organize my information in a folder (or tree)structure similar to how you might organize folders in your e-mail program. The onedifference between the two is that I have never lost a Treepad file because of corruption,while it is fairly common to lose your e-mail folder due to a corrupt or virus infected e-mailmessage. It is easy to create folders and subfolders in Treepad, and you can easily drag anarticle from one place to another in the program.
  2. 2. When I know I have information in the program, but cant remember where I put it, Treepadhas a great search function that helps me find exactly what I am looking for.Give this program a try and let me know what you think.

Of course, one is able to download, storeand play an almost infinite number of songs on just about any version of the iPod. And formore advanced users, there are iPods capable of playing movies and videos, and candisplay pictures as well. Indeed, the iPod is a fantastic item for someone to bring all of theirfavorite songs and singers with them wherever they go. Yup, the iPod pretty neat in thatregard.So, why would you want to waste the capabilities and abilities of your iPod on stuff youalready know and like?Okay, so theres an absolutely favorite song that you just cant live without and must havewith you at all times or else you may just die. That makes sense, so go ahead, put that songon your iPod. But, even though its easy, effective and enjoyable to plaster your iPod full offamiliar songs, thats incredibly boring and bland. Its like going to a high-end car dealer totest drive a Porsche, but you pout with your arms folded because you want to drive aTempo. What have you got to lose, besides experiencing and discovering something new?The same principle can apply to the iPod. The iPod is designed to store songs downloadedfrom a computer onto it. So, take advantage of that and download and listen to every songand artist that youve heard of and wanted to hear. Depending on how you download music,itll cost you nothing, or itll cost you about a buck a song. If youre paying for your
  3. 3. downloads (good for you), set aside some money for new chances and discoveries.Remember the old days of buying tapes and CDs? You had to purchase the entire album inorder to get the opportunity to listen to it. And, if you found that the artist or album wasnt toyour liking or just plain sucked well, too bad for you, because most record stores wouldnttake the album back. Many people complained that this wasnt particularly fair, but, hey,thats the way it was.Now, the technology exists to listen to just about anything you want wherever you want. So,what do most people do? Download the popular song of the day and listen to it non-stop ontheir iPod, even though it gets played on the radio every 14 seconds. Now, theres nothingwrong with that at all its your iPod, do what you want with it. But, the opportunity nowpresents itself where you can take a chance and discover something youve always wantedto hear, without any risk to you.Another great thing about the iPod is its portability. If you want to really get to know andunderstand a particular artist that youre interested in, you can download the songs ontoyour iPod and listen to them wherever you want, whenever you want. So, you dont have tolisten to small sample in a crowded record store, or listen on your computer while youredoing seven other things at the same time. You can get the tracks on your iPod, go for awalk or sit quietly and really immerse yourself and decide if you really like the songs andsingers or not.The iPod is a tremendously convenient and fun device to have. That being said, somepeople arent really exploring the limits of their iPod because they dont realize that the iPodis designed to play music all kinds and forms of music.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you backa few thousand bucks.
