Your Favourite CMS
SO which is your favourite CMS. There are many around. Joomla, Drupal for PHP, Dotnetnuke for windows & .Net. Then there is of course Wordpress, which is mainly used for blogging?

Very good question! Does it make a difference to your Google+ usage if Google's top brass don't use it?

I figure they're a little busy? Or perhaps Sergey and Larry only share with each other.

Wow what a game. IT was intense. My heart is still pumping. I always thought is was going to be a tough game.

So many said that it will be a walk over. In a Worldcup game nothing is a walk over. Too much at stake.

No to take on Australia. That will also be a hard game. But then out road to the 1995 world cup was also hard.

Who knows, here is holding thumbs ...

But I think the smart money is on New Zealand this year.

Was having a discussion with some folk on the Theory of Evolution. It was brought to my attention that the term theory does not mean the same to them as it would to a lay person like me.

Oddly enough, I looked up theory in Webster's, surprised to note the synonyms and alternative words. These more accurately describe my understanding of the term 'Theory'


Synonyms: hypothesis, proposition, supposition, thesis
Related Words: assumption, concession, premise (also premiss), presumption, presupposition, theorem; conjecture, generalization, guess, guesswork, inference, speculation, surmise; proffer, proposal, suggestion; feeling, hunch, impression, inkling, notion, suspicion; abstraction, concept, conception, construct
Antonyms: assurance, certainty, fact, knowledge

IT would seem that my understanding of the term 'Theory' is more correct.

+Paul Falconer This is my point, Theory, Premise, or Hypotheses, neither speaks of fact nor actuality.

The English word theory was derived from a technical term in Ancient Greek philosophy. The word theoria, θεωρία, meant "a looking at, viewing, beholding", and referring to contemplation or speculation, as opposed to action.[1] Theory is especially often contrasted to "practice" (from Greek praxis, πρᾶξις) a Greek term for "doing", which is opposed to theory because theory involved no doing apart from itself. - Wikipedia

Scientific theory in this case, is nothing more proposed explanation.
In the case of evolution, this theory is based on very little evidence and a whole lot of assumtions, that are neither factual nor scientific.

A common misconception is that scientific theories are rudimentary ideas that will eventually graduate into scientific laws when enough data and evidence has been accumulated. A theory does not change into a scientific law with the accumulation of new or better evidence. A theory will always remain a theory, a law will always remain a law -Wikipedia

Many SEO Specialists will tell you that Link Building is an integral part of your SEO strategy. However there is a right way and a wrong way to link building.

Here in this blog post I suggest a much better and more effective way of link building.

Throw away the idea of emailing and begging for links. Admittedly this is a lot more hard work, but trust me, your hard work will be worth it.

Did you know that you can legally install Microsoft Office on two computers? That’s right, a single Microsoft Office license and purchase can be legally installed on two computers.
I've written a small blog post about a neat little point in the EULA that allows you and I to install a single copy of Microsoft Office on two computers legally.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) a new virtual training portal launched by Microsoft that is aimed at IT professionals. The online learning portal is aimed at those who want to learn new skills and enhance existing ones for cloud computing environment.

The Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) offers no-cost training for IT professionals with 100 and 200-level content. That's right, online training at no cost, absolutely free! How can you pass that offer?

I recently tried it out. After only a few days, I have moved up the MVA rankings. Pretty cool.

So if you are into Cloud computing and cloud technologies, you should definately check this out.
