For the past few weeks, I have been using ChromeDeck (the native Tweetdeck application for the Google Chrome browser) fairly exclusively as my desktop Twitter client. I am very pleased with the application, and am extremely impressed at how similar the appearance is to the desktop app. There are a lot of neat features that you won’t find in the full-fledged desktop version; but there are also a few features I used regularly in the AIR application that I sorely miss in the Chrome version.
Moogo lets you create professional looking websites with a range of design and layout options for almost any type of content site. There are a wide range of options inside the Moogo portal and site creation is very quick and easy. It’s just three simple steps and if you can use Microsoft Word, you will be able to use Moogo.
The only thing you need to decide with Moogo is what features you want to use. Moogo offers you a Free Website with minimal options and features, something very basis if you are not ready for a full web presence. Then there are paid options ranging from $4.99/month to $14.99/month. I wont go into explaining the offerings for each of the paid plans, but I will explain the steps on how to setup the Personal Website plan:
Selecting a Layout
The first step is all about selecting the correct layout for your site. Moogo offers a variety of layouts from which you can select the one that best suits your needs. Assign the headers, the header is the top image on your page and you can select from a variety of categories, from Interests to Information Technology. You can preview your selections on the right side to see the picture of what the page looks like.
Microsoft Office 2010 will include the ability to save documents to and open documents from a repository on the Web. Further, you’ll be able to actually open the documents in your browser and perform minor edits. Until that functionality is enabled, though, you have another option to do the same thing (actually, since we have yet to actually see the collaboration and cloud storage features in Office 2010 – they have not yet been enabled in the beta – the alternative might even be better than what’s coming).
OffiSync allows you to save your documents to and open documents from a GoogleDocs account. You can associate multiple Google accounts with your Office installation, easily switching back and forth between those accounts. With OffiSync, you can do all of the following:
Recently, the WordPress team has been pushing out new releases rather quickly, making it advisable to upgrade your installation fairly regularly. The WordPress wiki includes some pretty good instructions explaining how to backup your install and how to upgrade. However, with the EZ WordPress Backup plugin, you can backup and upgrade with even more ease.
Installing the EZ WordPress Backup plugin is just as simple as installing any other plugin. Simply go to your Plugins menu and click the “Add New” link. In the search box, type in “EZ Backup” and the EZ WordPress Backup plugin will be the only result that appears. Click the Install link and then activate the plugin.
Curtiss noticed that WordPress has posted a new version of their downloadable blog software today. The update takes the latest public version of WordPress to 2.8.5. WordPress employee Peter Westwood calls this a “hardening release” and is mostly related to security.
From the announcement, the headline changes in this release are:
A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
WordPress suggests that you update your WordPress installations to the 2.8.5 release. You can update manually by downloading the update and reinstalling all of the files or by clicking the upgrade button inside of the WordPress admin. Always make sure to backup your database before you upgrade your blog.
