I’ve known for some time that it’s theoretically possible to do a complete site move using WHM and cPanel. This tells me exactly how. (Too bad for me that my host won’t give me access to it!)

A nice, easy-to-implement fix for the nastiness that has historically been IE’s transparent PNG support. Note to self: in Fireworks, transparent PNGs should be saved as 32-bit alpha images.

ScanMyPhotos.com and 30 Minute Photos Etc. - Photo... →
This photo scanning service is extremely affordable, but their quality isn’t as high as Scan Cafe. It’s still plenty high to reprint, just not for enlargements. However, if you have boxes of photos to scan, this looks like the best bargain.

Someday when we get on a crazy clutter-free rampage, I’m going to want this link. This service looks like a very reasonably-priced one for most situations and they seem to care deeply about quality.

All of *Cinnamon’s photos are amazing, but I especially like this set taken of her beautiful daughter, Emma. Makes me want to actually do the photography thing.

You would not believe what simple checklists can do to save lives (and dollars) in hospitals. I’m not in the medicine business, but I’m going to harness the power of checklists to systematize my business.
