Hi Rich, wow I'm impressed! Thanks so much for those clarifications. Sometimes its difficult to fully comprehend theories without practical examples. Excellent work! I will be sure to implement as much of your knowledge as I can.

Nice list, Rich: Here is another potential item:

Include an off-topic forum. A welcoming catch-all place where members can come and discuss topics that don't necessarily fit any of the other forums.

* On the Monster Career Advice Boards that I used to manage in a previous professional life, this is "The Break Room" - http://budurl.com/MonsterBreakRoom
* On the High Rankings forums, where members discuss best practices in SEO, there's a board called "The Pub" - http://budurl.com/HighRankingsPubc
* On the Playstation.com boards, there's a forum call, appropriately enough, "Off-Topic Discussion" - http://budurl.com/PlayStationOffTopic It's billed as "the place to get to know your fellow forum members outside of the gaming world."

One important note: this *doesn't* mean that off-topic forums are a place for shenanigans. The "rules of the road" or publicly stated community guidelines still very much apply there. Good behavior is still expected!

Hope this helps.

Nice weather guys ? :)

I am mac air user and I was thinking about downloading Youtube.
Never did it with my dell pc. BUT
this evening, I found a util moviesherlock (http://www.moviesherlock.com/ - www.MovieSherlock.com or somethng like this, please contact me if I am wrong with url).
It downloads and converts more than 24 movies with single click!
But what is bad - the package is too simple no extended options :( But I want to copy downloaded movies to my ipod or add to itunes library.
How you guys solve the problem?

BTW: I am very rewarded with my mac book air, much more than with dell. He is so amazing and touchines...

Wanted: Meaningful overnight relationship.

Information from http://gold-collection.biz
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks fell on Wednesday as a glum profit forecast from Kraft Foods (KFT.N) signaled consumers are skimping even on the basics and investors worried that government efforts to rescue banks could wipe out their shareholders.

Even so, a report showing that the vast service sector shrank less than expected in January spurred technology gains, helping the Nasdaq finish near break-even.

Shares of Kraft, the top North American food maker, tumbled more than 9 percent and were the top drag on the Dow, followed by Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) ,which fell nearly 8 percent a day after reporting a slide in quarterly profit.

Costco Wholesale Corp (COST.O) dropped almost 7 percent after the largest U.S. warehouse club warned quarterly earnings would fall short of Wall Street's forecasts.

"Consumer spending is the lion's share of the economy," said Anthony Conroy, head trader for BNY ConvergEx in New York. "When consumers stop spending, the economy comes to a halt."

The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI) fell 121.70 points, or 1.51 percent, to 7,956.66. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index (.SPX) shed 6.28 points, or 0.75 percent, to 832.23. The Nasdaq Composite Index (.IXIC) dipped 1.25 points, or 0.08 percent, to 1,515.05.

Unease about the deteriorating earnings picture and uncertainty about the banking sector are major hurdles in the market's attempt to recover from an 11-year low hit on November 21. The S&P 500 is up 4 percent since that low, but is down about 8 percent since the start of 2009.

Shares of Kraft, whose products include Oreo cookies and Maxwell House coffee, tumbled 9.2 percent to $26.11 on the New York Stock Exchange, while Disney plunged 7.9 percent to $19.00. Costco shed 6.8 percent to $42.98 on Nasdaq.

Shares of Bank of America plunged 11.3 percent to $4.70, capping a fifth straight day of declines and touching a 19-year low during the session, as investors fretted about the uncertainty of how a government plan to relieve banks of money-losing assets would work.

Of particular concern is that the plan could wipe out current stockholders, traders said. The Obama administration is due to make an announcement on its bank rescue plan next week.

"The market wants to see some kind of a bank plan that makes sense," said Angel Mata, managing director of listed equity trading at Stifel Nicolaus Capital Markets in Baltimore.

Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) declined 4.1 percent to $17.45. The KBW Bank index (.KBX) fell 1.5 percent, while the S&P financial index (.GSPF) shed about 1 percent.

On the bright side, data from the Institute for Supply Management showed the service sector, which represents about 80 percent of U.S. economic activity, shrank less than expected in January, welcome news for investors.

The data spurred buying of shares of big-cap technology companies, including Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) , which posted a third straight day of gains, rising nearly 1 percent to $18.63 on Nasdaq. Intel Corp (INTC.O) climbed 2.1 percent to $13.88 on Nasdaq.
