Getting hitched in this weather? Why not? The white frost is just as romantic as it is dangerously biting cold. If you like the idea of having a different wedding style, far from the usual spring-inspired nuptials, then maybe you should book now while it’s still snowing out. Now you can easily have a white-wedding.
I wonder why all my books on Microsoft Office never pointed this out and it took How-to Geek to show us this neat trick in Word 2007 – selecting text vertically. This is pretty useful when editing lists. I’m not really sure if “vertical” is the right term for this feature since it actually allows you to click and drag diagonally to make the selection.
All you have to do is to press and hold down the Alt key then clicking and dragging over the selection.
You can use this not just for lists but it’s pretty hard to do with paragraphs since words are necessarily of the same length and alignment for you to be able to do it neatly.

This is one great “hack” if you happen to need to browse the Internet but the dastardly administrators just blocked out the use of Internet Explorer and prevented you from installing software like Mozila Firefox. If using a standalone browser via USB flash drive (Don’t you just want to throttle people when that happens as well.), then you might want to use this. The peeps from Hackosis brings us this neat workaround in Windows XP.
- Launch Calculator (either through the Start Menu or the keyboard ninja way Windows Key + R and type
calc then hit Enter)
- In Calculator, click Help -> Help Topics
- Right-click on the left hand side of the title bar just near the icon and click Jump To URL…
- Type in the URL (make sure that you include ‘http://’) and go about browsing
This essentially works since the Help for some XP applications are HTML based and uses the IE engine as well.
There’s that one morning you wake up to find your love life not so perfect as you thought it was. After that great time you’ve had last night, you thought nothing can go wrong now. But before you even get a flashback of last night’s.. erm, thrill, your own slice of romance is taking a detour. This happens to a lot of couples. The best thing for you to do before you get too close as to share a pillow, is to deal with your lover’s issues so you can move towards being steady.
The year is young and you’ve got a lot to live for this year. It’s quite normal for people to have some. But perhaps before you really delve deeper into 2008, you might want to resolve some unfinished business so you can really set off to a new start. Indeed one truly appreciates the need for procrastination when one has issues which are better off, well, forgotten. But with issues such as these, procrastination is not an option.
What a morbid thing to write about at the start of the year! Sure, but you have to be realistic about things. You’d never know when you’ll kick the bucket, whether it’s from radiation from wi-fi signals or a piano smashing you to pieces while walking down the street. And with death, it can happen to anybody. So what’s your family going to do if the worst happens say you’re the breadwinner. You still got kids to bring up, mortgage to pay… So you better have life insurance then. But with insurance companies like vultures, you have to pick the best policy for you.
Snow blindness is a temporary condition that is caused by the excessive glare of the sun’s rays bouncing off the snow. These harmful ultraviolet rays can cause temporary blindness on some people. Snow is highly reflective that even in overcast and cloudy days, glare can be present. The thing with this is that symptoms can occur as much as 8 hours after exposure.
This might be common if you live in an apartment building with a bunch of savages but it’s quite common in neighborhoods and even the suburbs too (especially since the richer folk can afford million-watt audio systems). If you want some peace and quiet but your neighbor won’t let up, then it may be time to deal with the person. The following is a guide to deal with the person tactfully. A kind word can do the job better than a clenched fist.
It’s the new year and with most electronics depreciate at the end of the year and that new models have come out, buying a new cellphone might be a great idea, just a little token for yourself for the past year well-spent. There are a lot of brands and models to choose from and its all about making a sensible purchase. Here’s a guide to choosing a cell phone.
With the series of snowstorms pretty common this winter, being a bit more careful around snow is quite crucial especially if you’re the type of person who like to go out in the snow. While avalanches may not be a real concern for city dwellers, people living closer to nature might have to be cautious with these things.
Being caught in one isn’t too remote and there’s nothing wrong in being prepared. Here’s how to spot probable avalanche locations so that you can avoid them. As with most dangers, avoiding them is best than dealing with them head-on.
