  1. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My website is in the very same niche as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!

  2. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  3. When having a new post to your website also make sure to check the keyword density of your post to avoid over-optimizing your website and lost the quality of your content.

  4. Oh my goodness! an incredible article dude. Thanks Nevertheless I am experiencing issue with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting equivalent rss drawback? Anyone who is aware of kindly respond. Thnkx

    Hey – nice weblog, just looking about some blogs, appears a quite great platform you’re utilizing. I’m currently utilizing WordPress for several of my websites but looking to alter one of them through to a platform similar to yours like a trial run. Anything in specific you’d suggest about it?

      Hi Jaime,
      I have only been working with WordPress a little over a year and consider myself a rookie. For informed comment on the same type of theme and design, I recommend Paul Taubman of All About Paul has a website devoted to setting up a WordPress site and offers a 28-day free course that will preview the concepts.

        Hi I am a firefighter and I need to use spciifec forms to record prevailing information and then email them to our operations center. Can I get A4 numbered paper and print out our forms on them. This would be a great system to use. I am currently using a tablet its good but like all things it has its limitations

          Hi Olga,
          heck out Akismet,a plug-in. There is a free Basic version for small sites. The neat thing is you can set Akismet to remove part of pending comments. You can approve ones you like first. Over the holidays I acquired a real problem with spam on both my sites. I am working with Hostgator on solutions. Aside from Akismet, Hostgator recommends Secure Lock, which you might not need.

      Hi Jaime,
      This is a Socrates theme by Joel Comm, but newer versions are available. I bought my version that was new at the time for $47. I believe that the new version has a 30 day trial period but it may be longer. The theme is very easy to use, the forum is tops. Good luck.

    These comments are excellent comments that you should submit to Livescribe. The focus of the Paper Tablet is to view and update a page of a Notebook or a Custom Notebook; for example updating a Powerpoint presentation or adding a Digital Signature to a Document. We can expect improvements since the focus of the new SVP for Engineering will be Product Strategy for increasing productive on a low cost computer platform and integrating applications.

        I just bought a used pulse. It didn’t come with henephoads so I am thinking about buying some. The pulse henephoads do have mics right? If I wanted to get the echo henephoads with a converter jack would that work?I am also trying to delete files that are already on the pen and can’t figure out how to do it. Also, when I get on to the livescribe program without hooking up the pen, I can’t see the recorded files? Do I have to have the pen hooked up to listen to lectures and view notes?Thanks,Derek

          Hi Derek, I bought one son a refurbished Echo 8 GB; I have not heard whether his pen had content for deletion. It may be that you have to hook up the pen to the USB cable to delete. I have used to pen to record and update content on the pen without the cable. I add the cable later when I recharge the battery. Read your User Manual. I believe I bought a 2GB Pulse two years ago and an Echo 4GB in January of last year. I have headphones and have never used them. I recognize that you need the headphones often when you lare in a large claasroom or large meeting room. If you check out headphones, you need to convert a headphone for 3.5 audio phone to work with the Pulse 2.5 audio jack.
          Good Luck,
