Unlike Bush’s ‘Google Bomb,’ Google Quickly Defuses Obama’s
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them: and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
Hope all is well. We really like the work that you sent us. However, your price is out of our reach. Is there anything else you can do to bring it down any more? Also, does the basic site mean vanilla and boring or would it be as dynamic as some of the examples that you sent? Any examples of what a “basic” implementation looks like?
i am an apple iPhone app store junkie, i admit it. so there.
but if any of you have an iphone, i can heartily recommend 2 pass, and more, but these 2 help me a ton:
- Jaadu VNC connect
(security aside, i can see and CONTROL/LAUNCH/VIEW/COPY/EMAIL/etc. completely my desktop computer, from my iPhone, anywhere i am in the world with my iPhone (tough i don’t usu. go all over the world!!!). see pic. that’s my entire live desktop on my iphone, controllable from my iphone in every way. even cmd key shortcuts.
great for those times when you MUST get something from your desktop mac but are away from it. for example, i can email FROM my desktop, say a client a file or something, even if i am not at the computer. not something to replace the “actually being there”, but man, in a pinch, basically like truly amazing. to me at least.
- 1Password (was using ‘Pastor’, thanks to Rob W., on my desktop, but after i needed p/w on my phone AND my desktop, which Pastor did not have, i pulled out a free copy of 1Password, that i had gotten in “one of them bundles of 10 apps for $49″, and man, the sync between the desktop and iPhone version is really handy, as well as other features.
- appsniper (find on sale and new apps, just feeds the addiction though); airsharing (makes the iphone like a flash drive, carry around samples); tdf time (time, mileage and daily expense keeper); my lists (to do list done right); bibles2go (3 translations and good bookmarking of passages, requires NO internet); Bible (youverson.com’s version, also good, but requires internet); weighbot; pushupfu; guitar toolkit; FB; nuage paper; what’s on, and some others.

Over Worked and Under Played?
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” -Proverbs 13:12
Do you ever feel like you work too much and play too little? If so, you’re not alone! The average American worker takes off half as much time as the average European or Japanese worker does–12 days a year versus 25 days. Is this a healthy plan? John Eldredge says, “Drivenness shrinks the heart.” What do you think?
Most people limit time off because of fear, “What if I miss the deal, what if the client needs me.” Does this fear seem worth it to you? I’ve heard that the greatest regrets in life are not the activities to which we commit but the activities to which we omit! Yes, you should work as unto the Lord, but don’t miss the opportunity to take PT (personal time) for refreshment and recreation for YOU! The literal definition of recreation is to create again, refresh, and reboot. Think about what your computer is like after days of heavy operation without a fresh reboot. We aren’t any different; we get sluggish, ineffective, and inefficient when we don’t take regular time off. Plan now, while the year is young, to take one day off each month just for you; think of this as extreme self care!
For the past eight years I have blocked out every other Wednesday on my calendar. On average, I end up with 15 personal (most unpaid, so yes it does cost you something) days away per year; over the span of eight years that’s 120 days I have engaged in relaxation or adventure! Think of the compound interest that has accumulated. During the summer I often take one of my children with me to introduce them to this “life strategy,” but usually it’s just my God and me, the greatest day of the month!
Right now would be the best time to calendar extreme self care days for 2009. What’s stopping you?
“Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.” – Thomas Jefferson
