he seems to flow down the mountain without effort or a care in the world. It takes a lot to rattle him, and when the mountain does present him with a sudden challenge, instinct takes over, keeping him well in control of his destiny.Great skiers—like Marcus Caston, pictured here—ski with strength, athleticism, and, most important, experience, qualities the rest of us possess in lesser degrees. But there’s a lot we can learn by watching and emulating, including these three…

    I’ve been using Wordpress on various projects over the years and one of the things that has always been a bit disappointing to me is the difficulty of moving a blog, from a development site to production or from one host to another. It’s easy enough to use the export content function, but in configuring and building a good-looking and working blog, there are so many configurations, widgets, menus and more that are setup and need to be setup again that I always spend way more time than it seems necessary going through all the entire CMS to make sure I’ve made all…

    “Don’t be afraid to fail” is a common refrain in business. It’s one which is easier to say than to do. This is why it’s so interesting to see how one of the most powerful companies in the world, Google, really does act out this mantra. As a recent example, here’s a recent Google+ post in which it was announced that Google search results will no longer display authorship results: Google has used authorship as a ranking factor in their search results dating back to about 2011, but they have been phasing it out over the past year or so. There’s a…

And yes, when passwords are used by someone who shouldn’t have them, it can certain wreck a lot of havoc – yikes!
