On Screen Keyboard
I'm not sure how many of you would like to use this, but I thought it would be a neat little idea to share with you all. Did you know that you can put a keyboard on your computer screen and actually type with it?
If that sounds interesting to you, then follow these directions. Go to Start, Run and type in "osk" (without the quotes). In Vista, just type it in the search bar. Click OK and a mini keyboard will pop up on your screen. Now, open up the program you want to write in and start clicking the letters on the keyboard with your mouse. The letters will appear and your typing will be done.
This may not be the quickest way to type, but if you like to use your mouse and you don't exactly like typing on the keyboard, this is perfect for you. Once you have the keyboard on your screen, you can even go to the Settings menu and choose your own font and size. There is also a sound option, so if you like to hear the keys clicking, choose "Use clicking sound." In the Keyboard menu, you can also choose the number of keys you would like to have displayed, between 101, 102 and 106.
Isn't that cool? I just used it to type this last sentence. Keep in mind that it might take you a little while to get acquainted with the keys on the on screen keyboard, but it's definitely worth a shot and it's kinda fun. There's also a Help menu if you need any further help figuring it all out.

Professional Level Desktop Publishing Made Affordable!
Incredible Power At Your Fingertips!
I'm so excited! I bet you've never seen anything quite like this one before! We have Page Designer Pro and it's some really amazing, professional-level desktop publishing software that's gonna absolutely blow you away! This makes PrintShop look like a toy! Check this out:
First off, this is a LOT like Adobe InDesign, just an amazing $692 LESS than what Adobe gets for their version! It's meant for - and does - pretty much the same thing - pro level design and print. You can literally create ANYTHING you can imagine with this software. This is truly a high-end desktop publishing solution and the power it brings is amazing. Talk about blown-away by what you can do with a computer and printer!!
The first thing you'll notice when you start it up is your choice between a really handy wizard interface or the option to start a project from scratch. When you first start playing with it, just go ahead and take a look at what those wizards can do for you (over 2000 designs)! You'll be amazed at just how quickly you can create ads, brochures, business stationery, calendars, cards, letterheads, invoices, flyers, forms, newsletters, notices, handouts, event programs, posters, banners, price lists, reports, announcements, invitations, greeting cards and TONS more!
What that brings to the table with the amazing "wizards" is easily enough to justify this fantastic program, but that's only the beginning! After you're done checking out the wizards, go ahead and start a project from scratch - you're gonna be absolutely floored at how quickly you can produce professional level projects! This is the kind of software they use in professional print shops! Once you start messing around with it, you'll discover very soon you start to feel like a professional graphics artist!
As for features, this thing is the 800LB gorilla of desktop publishing! For example, just wait till you start playing with dozens and dozens of preset color schemes for your projects! Change the look and feel of your project in a mouse click! Great to use with the wizards to instantly change the look and feel of, well, ANY project!
Oh, and wait till you feast your mouse on the professional layout tools! Talk about a kid in a candy store! This has everything you need (and probably more)! We're talking intelligent text fitting (nice), kerning, hyphenation, drop caps, smart quotes, named styles, movable ruler and guides, precision placements, rotation, calendar tools, tables, brush / pencils, gradients, fills, shapes, all kind of text, frames and TONS more! I could fill the length of this review with JUST the tools at your disposal!
PLUS, you've absolutely got to check out the Text Composition Tools - you'll love these things! Get this - you have all the following at your beck and call: Word count, spell checker, search & replace, a thesaurus, AutoCorrect, AutoSpell, over 300 new fonts, and - get this - a proofreader! That's right - you can have the program actually "read" your text and it can make suggestions for improvements! Now THAT'S cool!
Another feature you'll really love is the amazing "Text On A Path" tool! Here's how it works - You create a "path" using your mouse in any shape you want - a squiggly line, a square, a letter - whatever you can dream up. Then, double-click and start typing - your text will actually follow along the path you created, twisting and turning all along the way! Soooo cool!
You've gotta try the QuickShapes too! These aren't just the lousy shapes you drop into Word or something. These are basically intelligent clipart! Choose a shape, drag & drop it on your document, then adjust each angle and dimension using the little handles! Oh, and you can fill the shapes, do different "styles" , put in a gradient, add a photo, and MORE! The options are fantastic!
Oh, but the drawing fun isn't just limited to the QuickShapes! This has an amazing arsenal of drawing tools that you have to see to believe! You can sketch freehand, apply some really cool styles, make custom shapes, and create all kinds of eye-popping graphics in minutes! You could literally design your own clipart!
What if you have a photo you want to drop in? Yup, not only can you add any photo, you can even enhance it right in the program so it looks amazing in just a few mouse clicks! Once it's in the program, there's dozens and dozens of ways you can use it!
Hey, have you ever needed to place a photo in with a bunch of text and couldn't get the text to "flow" right around it? Sometimes the text runs though your photos, sometimes the text gets blocked out, pushed around, or just ends up looking wrong. Well, this lets you easily reshape, rotate, and adjust your text frames to make your next project look like a magazine spread!
Heck, did I mention this can even create a website for you? Imagine the power above put into a web design program! It has all the tools you need to quickly and easily create professional looking webpages! Add text, graphics, animated gif, music, java - it can do it!
As if all that wasn't enough, this can also do mail merges, has some really cool transparency effects (so you can "see through" objects that are on top of other objects), mind-blowing versatility in printing, allows for outstanding PDF output, and even includes a PANTONE library if you're outputting your work for press publication! Told ya it was loaded!
BONUS!!! BONUS!!! Can you believe this? It also includes a second CD with a whoppin' 100,000 graphics crammed onto it! Clip art, photos, it's all there and at your fingertips! This alone is worth the price of the software! With 100,000 images to choose from, you'll always be able to find the exact graphic you need for your projects!
Your cost for all this? Just $7.97 and US shipping is FREE! After using this for just a little bit, I can't believe we got these for this kind of price! Our supplier must be nuts!
It's really the best $7.97 you'll ever spend on desktop publishing! Honestly, if we were selling it for the $40 retail, it would STILL be well worth the price! This is truly a professional level program that looks and works an awful lot like Adobe's $700 InDesign! If you want to do some serious desktop publishing, there's never been a cheaper way to get serious about it! $7.97!! Once you start using it, you'll agree that it's crazy for anyone to pass this by! You're not gonna believe what you get for less than $10!
You've gotta give this a try because for this kind of money you just can't afford to pass it by!!
PS - Bad news? Only a limited quantity of these are available, so you need to get to the site ASAP to grab your copy! You'll be completely blown away at how you can get software this powerful for $7.97!!!

The cursor may change into a small hand (when you come across a link)
...or an animated cursor (when Windows is loading up for a commanded action)
In word processing programs, when writing email, or hovering over web page text the cursor turns into an I-shaped object that flashes in the line of text. Now, that looks more like a "real" cursor :-)

Super Quick Navigation Switch in MS Outlook 2007
Recently, I stumbled across the fastest method I've seen for jumping between different features of MS Outlook 2007 so I thought I'd share.
I'm sure most people agree than fast = key combinations. (As opposed to the time it takes to accomplish a task with all of the mouse work.)
So logic suggests that what I have for you today is a list of key combinations (and logic happens to be correct in this case - unlike so much else in the world... anyway, I digress, so back to business).
I'd like to start with the key combination that actually displays the Navigation Pane. (Left side of the program window - the section where we usually use the mouse to move to another location.)
You can switch between three different views of the Navigation Pane using Alt + F1.
This combination will toggle between your three view options:
Now, as to the rest - these combinations will switch the Navigation Pane and take you directly to the feature of your choice:
Now, I do realize that this takes a bit of learning to get them committed to memory - but once there they should come in very handy.
And here's something I noticed when I was working with them - the numbers assigned to each feature logically follow the order that the items appear in the Navigation Pane.
If you take a quick peek you'll see that Mail is at the top (1), then the Calendar (2), then your Contacts (3), etc so learning these is as simple as counting. (Yes, I know, back with the "logic" thing again - I can't help it, it's the math teacher in me wanting everything in order and...well, logical...)
Anyway, now you have all you need to know to accomplish a super quick switch in MS Outlook 2007!

You know, we've offered some pretty amazing software in the past, but just wait till you see what we have for you today!! When it comes to bang-for-the-buck, our newest title, Office Suite 2008 just blows everything else away! I can't tell ya how absolutely impressed I am with this amazing software! It's a phenomenal MS Office alternative that has EVERY feature you'd ever want or need in an office suite at a price that's almost a give-away!!! PLUS - this is 100% MS Office compatible!
First off, I can tell you that MS Office no longer has a place on my computer - or any new computers that we get for the office! Office Suite 2008 is not just an alternative to MS Office - in my opinion, it's actually a WAAAAYY BETTER alternative! It's easier to use, faster, and just way more user-friendly! Seriously - just wait till you spend your first hour or so with it - you'll wonder why you haven't been using it all along! You won't believe how impressive this software is!
In fact, most of the articles you see here in the newsletter were written either with one version or another of this software! Why shell out up to $800 for MS Office when these does everything it does - and then some - for a FRACTION of the price? Heck, I just installed this on my new laptop for an upcoming trip! I can tell you this - once you give this a try, you won't be back to MS Office and their insane prices - EVER!
What do you get? Well, EVERYTHING! This includes an absolutely fantastic word processor, a spreadsheet program on steroids (it just stomps Excel), presentation software that makes PowerPoint all but obsolete, an incredible drawing program (think easy to use TurboCad), an advanced calculating program, and even a souped-up, high-end database! PLUS it can even create PDFs with the push of a button from most applications! WOW! To get even close to that with MS office you'd be looking at a small fortune!
OK, So how close is this to MS Office, really?
Well, I was editing a document with a friend and for first half-hour he thought we were using MS Office. Finally he looked at it a little closer and said, "Hey - what program is this?" I told him about it - and how inexpensive it was - and he was blown away! He couldn't believe that you could get a program like this for less than $15!! In fact, at first he thought I was kidding around. Well, he's got a few on the way for himself now! Why shell out $400 - $800 for MS Office when you can get this for a small fraction of the cost? Check it out:
The 2 of the main components are a top notch Word Processor and a Spreadsheet Program. Both look a LOT like MS Word and MS Excel - in fact, if you just open it up and ignore the title bar, you'd swear that you were using an improved version of MS Office! It's THAT good. Oh, and like I said, this also comes with a phenomenal presentation program, drawing program, database and MORE! Let's look at the main two everyone use though - I just want to give you an idea why this program is sooo great!
The Word Processor is just fantastic! I mean, it really has everything - a spell checker, grammar checker, thesaurus, auto text, tables, password protection, mail merge, easy font selection, auto numbering, etc. Plus, everything is very intuitive - it just seems like things are where you expect them to be and work the way you'd expect them to work. It's like the person who wrote the software actually uses the software! Here's just a taste of what you can create with the word processor:
And the mail merge is incredible too!
It also has a fantastic built-in HTML editor for web pages that works seamlessly with the word processor. It makes it mind-blowingly simple to create fantastic webpages in a VERY short amount of time! Like this:
Oh PLUS ~ You can turn your document into a PDF file with the click of one button ~ this is a terrific feature!!
Oh, and wait till you see the Spreadsheet Program! It looks and functions just like MS Excel! Even the menus are virtually identical - everything you're used to doing in Excel can be done just as quickly here. TONS of built-in formulas, formatting, and functions at your fingertips. Create charts in just a few mouse clicks, filter data easily, send spreadsheets via e-mail, you name it, this can do it! You'll never need Excel again (or wan to use it for that matter)!!
The really cool thing is that all of this is 100% MS Office Compatible. It not only opens MS Office files (.doc, .xls) but can also save in that format! That way, you don't need to have MS Office to create or save MS Office documents. Cool huh?
I tell ya what - I could go on and on about this one - it's really one of the most - if not the most - powerful office suites I've ever had the privilege of using! I'm really excited about having it on my computer and I can't recommend this highly enough! If you need office software, you just gotta give this a try!
Oh, your cost? Glad you asked! Just $9.97 and US shipping is FREE! It's almost a give-away for that kind of money - especially when you think that MS Office is $400-$800!! Try it, you'll thank me later :-)
PS - These always FLY outta here, and this newest version is the best ever! Make sure you zip on over to the site and get yourself a copy before they sell out! It's really amazing that you can get software this powerful for just $9.97! Check it out!

Conscientious Software Installation
We get calls and email all the time from readers who have trouble running software. Many times, these problems are caused by PBDC errors (Problem Between Desk and Chair) during install. I'm guilty of this too. Many times we try to install software without checking the memory and system requirements. So often we click "I Agree" to things we have not read or "Next" without reading the screen. Here are some simple tips for smart software installation:
Verify System Compatibility - Before you buy, make sure that your system can handle the software and has an operating system that supports it. For instance, our software pages list system requirements such as Processor, RAM, Hard Drive Space and Windows version. If you have an old hand-crank PC with Windows 98, an 8x CD drive and a Pentium II processor, then you will most likely have problems with current software titles.
Pay attention to where the file goes - During installation you can choose where you want that program to be. Don't just click NEXT. Maybe you could put it somewhere that makes more sense.
Don't get "click happy" - Read each screen before you click "Next". The default on the screen is not always the best setup for your system. I installed a program one time that defaulted to the demo mode rather than the full version. Imagine my surprise when some of the features were locked. Or maybe you prefer to run off a CD rather than clog up drive space. These might be options that you just clicked past and missed out on.
Look at the ReadMe File - Usually after you install software it asks if you want to view the ReadMe file. Maybe you're afraid it's some Alice in Wonderland thing (like "Drink Me") that will make you grow into a giant. Well, it's not. Often it is filled with legal mumbo jumbo and useless information, but sometimes it will tell you about abnormalities caused by certain system configurationsmaybe even yours.
Check out the tutorial - Most programs actually teach you how to use them. This is especially important with things like virtual drives, firewalls, pop-up blockers, and utilities that if configured improperly, will not work right. You might be the adventurous type, but if you want to get the most from your software, the tutorial is a faithful guide (in most cases).
Following these simple guidelines could help you avoid hours of frustration and emails to the help desk. You won't get so annoyed that you never use the program or just end up uninstalling the program.

I want to say one thing before I dive into my review of this site; while it is set in the United States (it’s maintained by FEMA) there is a lot of information here that is useful world wide.
There are seventeen different types of disasters and this page is devoted to teaching you all about them. A few of them of them didn’t even occur to me so I was very happy to learn about them. The disasters are: Chemical Emergencies, Dam Failure, Earthquake, Fire, Flood, Hazardous Material, Heat, Hurricane, Landslide, Nuclear Power Plant Emergency, Terrorism, Thunderstorm, Tornado, Tsunami, Volcano, Wild Fire, and Winter Storm.
I’m going to go over a few of these categories with you:
Chemical Emergencies – this is probably one of the most important to learn about because you probably have several hazardous chemicals in your house right now. Here you’ll find a list of household items that can be hazardous, as well as, how to deal with a chemical emergency if one should occur.
Dam Failure – Did you know there are more than 80,000 dams in United States? I know I sure didn’t. So the possibility of having to go through a dam failure emergency is more wide spread then you would think.
Earthquake – now this is one I expected to see on the list. If you live in an area prone to earthquakes make sure you check this section to make sure you are knowledgeable and prepared if there was an earthquake where you live.
Fire – this one was another no brainer for the list. A fire could happen anywhere, to anyone, at any time. I think this section is a must read for everyone – be prepared, know what to do if you’re faced with fire, and it might just save your life.
Flood – I think this is one of those disasters that most people don’t think about, but honestly a flood could happen just about anywhere if it rained enough, or if a dam broke. Here you will learn flood terminology, what you can do during a flood, and what you can do after a flood. There is also a great link to a flood risk map that shows the entire United States, and what the risk of flood is there at the moment.
Hazardous Material – this ties into the chemical emergency section but on a larger scale. In this section think about factories producing chemicals, chemicals that are being shipped via the highway, or mail, and what disaster could occur if something went wrong.
Heat – this is another one that we don’t give much thought to, but heat can definitely kill you. Especially now that we’re in the summer months here, this section is definitely one that you need to check out. You can learn about treatments for heat induced ailments, as well as, what constitutes a heat emergency.
Hurricane – I think hurricanes are probably one of the natural disasters that a lot of people are prepared for, but what if you’ve just moved to a hurricane prone city or want to teach your kids about hurricane safety. Check out this section to learn about hurricane terminology, links to storm weather reports, and what the different categories assigned to hurricanes mean.
Landslide – another disaster that we don’t think about much, but could happen anywhere. There are many different causes of landslides that you’ll learn about here.
Nuclear Power Plant Emergency – living near several power plants, has definitely made me aware of the possibility of something going wrong there. If you live near a nuclear power plant you should check this section out as it has some great tips for limiting your exposure to radiation should something go wrong.
As you can see, you’ll find a lot of universal need to know information about disasters that could happen anywhere. Check this site out today!

Amazing New Software Is The Ultimate 1-2 Punch!
"It's Almost Like Magic!"
Super-Smart Software Recovers Deleted Files With Point & Click Ease!
Recover Files From Internal / External HDs, Memory Cards, Flash Drives, MORE!
*** HUGE BONUS - Includes The Best Back-Up Software - Ever! ***
You'd Have To Be Crazier Than An Outhouse Rat To Miss This One!
It happens to all of us sooner or later - we click Delete (or press Format) and suddenly realize that we just killed the wrong file! Oh, that is a sick feeling, isn't it? Truth is, if you're using a computer, digital camera, flash drive, or any kind of device that stores data you WILL eventually delete an important file! We get e-mails constantly from people asking how to get back irreplaceable photos, critical documents, tax records, music etc - it ain't no fun losing important data!
Hey, only two kinds of people in this world - those that have lost critical files and those that WILL!
What do you do when disaster strikes? You know, when you realize you just accidently formatted a memory card and lost all the photos from your once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Or maybe you just accidently deleted an important document you've spent days working on. Perhaps your hard drive is starting to fail and you've just lost access to your data (been there, done that). Maybe all your music was on your MP3 player and now it seems to be gone.
What do you do now?
Does the sweat start to bead up on your forehead? Does your face turn red? Does your pulse quicken and your breathing get shallow? Do you feel that gut twisting panic start to sweep over you?
If you have Search & Recover 5 on your computer all is not lost - not even close! THIS is the go-to software for when you need to get data BACK from the digital darkness! This phenomenal software can recover your data - even when it seems hopelessly lost forever in the abyss! PLUS we just got an absolutely amazing deal on the current version that you'd better be sitting down for! WOW - we're gonna save you some serious money today!
First of all, Search & Recover makes getting back deleted files as simple as a few mouse clicks! Really! Once you try it, you'll be completely blown away!! It wasn't that long ago that the only people who had access to this kind of data recovery technology were high-tech pros in white lab coats - and let me tell ya - you could easily shell out HUNDREDS to get files back the way this software does!
This has several really amazing options for recovery too! Unlike some programs, this lets you select the category of files you're looking for! Have it search for deleted photos and movies, have it look for songs & sounds, have it look for emails - or have it look for ANY kind of deleted file! No matter what you need to find, this makes it quick and easy to recover!
Oh, and get this - it even has this powerhouse option called "Total Recovery" that finds all the deleted files in an area (like a folder or drive) recovers them all at once for you! Outstanding! So, even if you have a DISASTER (like an accidental formatting of a data drive / memory card / flash drive or you delete a critical folder), THIS can get it back for you! Talk about a lifesaver!
Plus, using it is oh-so-simple - we're talkin' point & click here! Really! Just tell it what you're looking for, sit back and relax! It will scan your drive and give you a complete report of everything it finds! From there, just click the files you want to recover!
You read that right - if you can use a mouse, you can use this incredible software!
Talk about SUPERCHARGED SOFTWARE too! This can even recover data on a drive that was formatted - now THAT'S impressive! We're talking pretty much anything too - internal hard drives, external hard drives, flash drives, and even memory cards! It can recover 'em all!
Oh, and this is FANTASTIC NEWS for anyone with a digital camera! If you've ever accidently formatted a memory card that had pictures on it you wanted, you know how much that hurts! Now, just pop your memory card into your camera (or card reader), hook up to your computer and run this software! It will recover your priceless photos in no time! WOW!
OK, I know what you're thinking (didn't know I was a mind reader, did ya)! Let me guess - "OK, that's all well and good, but I'm going to wait and buy this after I have a problem."
I completely understand - but keep this in mind. Once a file has been deleted on your computer, it's only a matter of time before it gets permanently overwritten by something else, and when that happens, it can never be recovered!
That's why you MUST have this software standing by, ready to go at a moments notice! Wait too long, and nothing can help!
PLUS - That's not all! Recovery is great, but even better would be to have a backup! I mean, think about it - what would happen if right now, as you were reading this, your hard drive completely died? Do you have a current backup? You should - we've seen it happen again and again - people get so complacent thinking that everything is going to be fine in their computer forever. Then, in the blink of an eye, disaster strikes and all their data is gone! Years of photos - gone! Entire music libraries - vaporized! All your documents, files, programs - wiped out! Just think - what would you lose if your computer died right now?
Well, this comes to the rescue (again)! This is the absolute BEST way to back up your computer! EVER! This can create an exact copy ("image" in geek-speak) of your hard drive! And, keepin' with the theme - it's super simple!
Here's how it works - you launch the wizard, follow the prompts, and create an image of your hard drive - you'll be amazed at how easy it really is - and you'll wonder why you haven't been backing up all along! Then, if disaster strikes, you can run a wizard and restore your computer back to EXACTLY the way it was when you created the image! Every file, every folder, even every program - just the way you left them! Now THAT'S the way to recover! Usually you can be back up and running in an hour! AMAZING!
My Personal Little Horror Story -
A couple years back I was testing some software on my computer. I did the install, rebooted, and the computer was totally useless. It wouldn't boot, Windows was totally corrupted - it looked like a real disaster. Can you imagine how much work it was to get that going again?
Surprise! I was back up and running in about 45 minutes! Luckily, I had made an image of the drive and I simply restored that image! All my data, programs, etc were ready to go and in less than an hour I was back at the computer like nothing had happened! Everything was EXACTLY the way it was when I made the image!
Having an image is SOOOOOOO much easier then trying to reinstall windows, spending a day getting up to date with your patches, installing all your programs (and trying to find all the serial numbers), and getting all your data back on your computer (assuming there was any left). Why risk lost data, hours of work, and lost of frustration when you can make an image? In an hour you could be back up and running like nothing ever happened!
Disk Imaging software is normally expensive too - we're talking $80 or so - and one of the best imaging programs I've run across is actually included with this program! Even if you don't think you're gonna need the recovery software, the disk image software included with this makes it a must-have!
As if all the above weren't enough, this also has what it calls a File Terminator! This part of the software can take sensitive files and delete them permanently and forever - nothing can recover them! This is fantastic if you have sensitive information on your computer that you just don't want anyone else to ever had access to!
Important financial documents, bank statement, loan info, stock records - I'm sure you can think of a few files on your computer right now that you wouldn't want strangers to have access to! Well, when you're done with them, this can make 'em disappear - forever!
Just enable the feature in Search & Recover and it will add a Terminator item to your right-click menu! Just right-click any item you want gone forever, and hit Terminate! It's that easy!
Your price for all of this? Well, first - let's look at what it's worth! File recovery program, hmm - $40. Imaging program - $40. File Shredder program - $30. Your total cost SHOULD be $110 - but it's NOT!!
Your price? Ready? Just $14.97 and US shipping is FREE! This is the current version you pay $40 in the stores for! Really! We made a special deal with the publisher for you because we were so impressed with it! Just wait till you try it - it's the one program no computer user should be without!
PS - This special price is only for a limited number of units. Once we surpass our allocation, the price will increase to $39.97, so make sure you get to the site ASAP!
Here's June's wallpaper. It's all free, so enjoy!
