Printing Pages from the Internet

There are many interesting websites and many interesting pages on the Internet. If you want to print a page that you found on the Internet, you can do it in one of two ways:

-First of all you can do it by printing the text of this website only. That way you will save some money on ink, but also will avoid unnecessary items being printed that you do not need anyway. If you are using IE and want to print a webpage, you will by default print only a text unless you will change it in settings.

-You can also print everything that is on a particular website. As I wrote in the previous point, your IE has a default option to print the text only. To change it and thus enable background etc. to be printed, go to Tools from the top menu bar and then go to Internet Options. Here choose the Advanced tab and look for Printing section. Check the option “Print background colors and images”. After that press Apply and OK.

There are a lot of interesting sites on the Internet, so at some point or another, I am sure that you will want to print something.

Investing in Penny Stocks is Risky

I have been into investing for as long as I cam remember. My interest in finances has helped me make money in many different ways. Of course, I needed to know how to invest, but I learned how to do it back in my university days. The thing is however that not everyone has to have any formal training in order to invest. These days it couldn’t be simpler as there are many places where you can obtain some valuable advice, so you don’t need to even know anything about the stock market. If a person is looking for some advice, then they can visit various sites dedicated to the topic. I have learned over the years that the key to being successful in investing is having access to some good advice. A person can do everything by himself, but having access to a second opinion is invaluable. Penny stocks are interesting as they do not require a very large capital to buy some stock. The price of penny stocks can fluctuate, so there is potential to make a lot of money even without a huge investment. At the same time there is a big chance to lose a lot of money. How to know which stock to buy? Well, this are various websites that offer some advice, but how do you know who to trust? Some claim that they already did some research and choose the best stocks that they think are worth investing in. More and more people invest as it is easier than it ever was before. However, in my opinion investing in penny stocks is very risky and it might be an interesting experience, but a person should only invest money that he is willing to lose.

Getting Rich Scams

You might have received spam email that claimed that you will get very rich if you buy something. Perhaps they were trying to sell you some method or some kind of product. Well, in most cases it is a scam as it is not so easy to get rich without hard work. However, people like to think that they can get rich suddenly and that is why such scams work. Usually the email message or website may tempt people by telling them how their life would be good if they could retire at a young age and drive luxurious cars while traveling on vacations abroad. While it might sound fun, you have to watch out so that nobody will manipulate you this way.

Free and Paid Email Accounts

There has been some discussion lately whether paid email accounts are superior to free email accounts. I think that it depends on a few factors and often free email accounts may actually have some advantages. One advantage of many free email accounts is that they are going to stay there forever. If a person has a paid email account that is connected to his domain name, then this email may get deleted when his domain name expires. On the other hand, some people use an email account that is given to them by their Internet provider. The problem with that is that once you change your Internet provider, you are going to lose your email address.

Operating Systems

There are many operating system out there, but the newest Windows operating systems out there are Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. While new computers are usually sold with the newest operating system, there are people out there who bought a computer a few years ago and they still use an older operating system. Generally speaking, if a person has a Windows XP or newer operating system, then there is not such a big reason to upgrade. Newer operating systems may have more features, but they also may require more system resources such as RAM. Older computers may not have enough RAM to use effectively the newest operating system.

Clean Your Computer

Cleaning your computer does not only mean cleaning it from the outside. Very often your computer is bombarded with information. Every time you visit a site on the Internet, a complete copy of that site is remember and stored on your computer. This is known as “cached copy” and it is stored on your computer from 1 to 999 days, depending on the settings of your computer. Today I am going to show you how to set an appropriate date after which the cached copies of webpages will be deleted from your computer.

Simply go to Internet Explorer and look for Tools on the top menu bar. From here go to Internet Options. Now look for Internet Temporary Files. Here you can delete both Cookies and Files. Look at the History at the bottom of the window and set the number of days after which you would like the cached pages to be deleted from your PC. Lastly, select Apply and OK.

Email and Signature

In my opinion, using signatures in your emails can make your emails look more professional. In this post I am going to explain how to use signatures in Outlook. While sending an email you can sign it in a way that you wish. In Outlook your signature can be customized to suit your needs. Check out how you can do it easily:

-From the top menu bar choose “Tools”, then “Options”. Here you will be given a choice to select “Mail Format”. After you have done that, choose Signatures from the bottom of the window.
-Here click “New” and enter a name for your new signature. Press “Next” after which you will be give an option to type your own signature. It is highly customizable. You can choose font, size etc.
-Press “Finish” to finalize the process of establishing your new signature. You signature will from now on be applied to all your new messages.

When choosing a signature you should remember that all kinds of people will see it, be it your family, employer, friends or even business partner. Choose an appropriate signature with which you will be happy.

Starting a Blog

If you have been considering starting a blog, but you think it is too difficult, then let me tell you that starting a blog can be easier than it sounds. If you never had a website, then naturally you may be a bit anxious about starting a blog. However, you just need to do a few things to start a blog. If you want to host your blog on your own domain, then you will need to register a website and buy hosting for it. Once you do that, many hosting companies offer tools to install a blogging platform such as WordPress through a friendly Web-based interface.

What are you going to do this summer? I do not know about you, but I am sure of one thing: I want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. What is a better time to spend time hanging out outdoors than to do it in summer? All I have to do right now is to come up with a list of activities I will want to engage myself in. This should be a piece of cake as I have many activities in mind that would offer me and my family a lot of fun.

My family and I do not go fishing together, but who knows, maybe one day we are going to start the tradition of participating in the activity. Probably one of the reasons I have never been into fishing is that nobody introduced me to it. I sometimes regret that I am not a fishing amateur, but I guess it is never too late to do something about it.
