Boomerang is a must use for Inbox-todo method

I find that I use my inbox as my todo list. I know I know I know… It’s not the greatest use of the inbox.

When I did a quick search I didn’t find any examples, so I’m adding this to the interwebs as official spam documentation.

It’s too bad, I always thought my uncle was a rich Oil Tycoon ;)

WordPress vs Drupal vs Joomla vs Expression Engine

cms - wordpress - drupal - joomla - expression engineI often am asked which CMS a client should use, and while I’m not a developer I know plenty of developers and somehow have been given the status of “objective recommender.” This morning I woke to find just such an email request:
