$7.00? How could I say no?

Well at least it was worth a look. Some bits didn't interest me, but I'd seen the themes from Themify - and here was a chance to take two and see how they behaved. And two months hosting for free with Pixeno meant I would have somewhere to host them.

I took up the offer of the deal, chose the Sidepane and Edmin Wordpress themes from Themify, (I already had a spare domain I could use) and set up the hosting.

Time will tell, but the host (Pixeno is based in the UK with its datacenter in Maidenhead) is behaving nicely and everything is working nice and fast.

So now I am just looking at the one month free Adobe training with TrainSimple. The intro panel when I joined for my free 30 days training says:

You're now ready to view our entire collection of training videos. You have unlimited access, watch what you want when you want. Each time you login to your account, you will be brought to your account page. You can manage your subscription, view recently viewed courses, and find our most recent releases. Start Learning! 
Tell the world you have access to Train Simple's training library

So, as I am writing this there are 45 hours left on the deal at Bundlehunt

Giveaway Tools

After looking at an article on InsightScope about contest giveaways, I just read the FAQs for one of the tools, which is KingSumo Giveaway and I see that as at the time the FAQs were prepared, the tool doesn't integrate with Mailchimp. Instead you have to download a CSV and upload.Also, there is a warning that the tool may not be compatible with Facebook's terms in the future.Finally, there is a long, convoluted way you have to deal with duplicate content, which is described in the FAQs as follows: I’m concerned about duplicate pages for SEO We don’t create new pages, just add a parameter to your URLS. Google just sees the original page and URL structure. What we recommend if Google results are important is to run the tool, then once it looks like a winner I’d change the Title to the winner and the original URL. Remove the other titles. We are working on a fix to make this easier.Advanced users:Utilize the parameter tools in Google’s Webmaster Tools and set the Headline plugi…

MarsEdit 4

I've been using MarsEdit for just over seven years. I started with version 2, and then upgraded to version 3 in 2010.Now, in 2018, I just upgraded to version 4. This is my first post with the upgrade and I'll report on it in a little while as I get used to the new version.Here is what Daniel of Red Sweater Software has to say about his product:Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor. If you're lucky enough to have a Mac, nothing is more powerful, or more elegant than MarsEditRich and Plain Text Editing MarsEdit's editor switches easily from Plain to Rich Text, so you can work in whichever format you prefer. Love Markdown? MarsEdit can preview it and convert it to HTML if needed.Wildly Compatible Works with WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, Movable Type, and any …

Business For Britain Is Concerned With Business For Britain

This report in the New York Times today

LONDON — Is British business fretting about the risks of the country drifting out of the European Union? Or does it crave a looser relationship with Continental allies, one free from meddlesome regulation?
The answer to that question remained unclear Monday after a newly formed group of business leaders argued for a renegotiation of Britain’s membership terms — echoing the policy of Prime Minister David Cameron, who in January promised voters a referendum on whether the country would remain in the Union.
The new group, called Business for Britain, is intended to counter the intervention of pro-E.U. business leaders who have warned of the dangers of Britain slipping out of the 27-nation bloc and its single market of 500 million people. A statement released Monday to announce the group’s formation was signed by about 500 executives.
I think this opinion in the New York Times article is interesting:

Never much attracted to the idea of European unity,…
