Find.com - The Search Engine To Use

FIND.COM!! The easiest thing to remember when searching online for your favorite items, just use there newly designed keyword search tool and you will be directed to the results. It’s that simple, what more could you ask for.

With some of the other search engines on the world wide web you get so many results. It can take hours to go thru the links to find what you are looking for. Not with FIND.COM! With there technology you will only get the best results that match your keywords.

They also have a growing number of interesting articles for you to read. Currently at 500 and should be in the thousands by the end of the year. These articles are all unique and expert-written. Find.com Search Engine site is very clear, simple and not a lot of overpowering ads, plus easy to remember. You can Find People, Find Friends, and even Find Jobs. I compared there keyword search to a few other search engines while timing the amount of time it took to find the link to the website of my choice. And by far FIND.COM was the fastest. In comparison it took an average of 15 minutes less time to find the link of my choice. I will surely be using and going to FIND.COM first the next time I am searching for something online.

Think Firefox 3 is fast? Try Firefox Minefield

A colleague today showed me a cool, new browser that he's been using to browse the web at blisteringly fast speeds. The browser? Minefield. The author of the code? Mozilla. Yes, that same Mozilla that makes the Firefox browser. Minefield is, in fact, a way to glimpse into the future of Firefox, as it's a pre-release/alpha version of the Firefox browser. After spending some time with Minefield, one thing is clear: the future of Firefox is fast. Lightning fast.How fast? Some claim that it has the fastest javascript engine on the planet, which means it leaves Google's Chrome browser in the dust. In my own unscientific tests, I'd say that this assertion is correct. Ars Technica pegs Minefield as 10 percent faster than Chrome. You can download the latest nightly build for Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows, but be warned: it's alpha code. Feeling brave? Or simply feeling like your browser is too slow? Give Minefield a try. It's a separate install so it won't affect an existing Firefox install. You have nothing to lose but your chains.

Travel to New Zealand

325x425_baldcampaign

Have you ever considered traveling internationally? Are you afraid you cannot afford the airfare or traveling expenses? Well, I to was in your shoes for many years. I never traveled anywhere for the first half of my life and regret every minute of it. Now I have traveled all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines. The Philippines is where I meet my loving wife and we still travel there almost every year for a visit.

We have dreams of traveling to a few other places in the world. One of these places is The Land of The Long White Cloud. This is in New Zealand and has scenic mountain ranges, coastlines, beautiful wildlife and geysers. These are big tourist destinations that draw visitors from all over the world.

One of the countries largest and most popular air carriers is Air New Zealand. They have teamed up with the tourist industry to provide great air travel at an affordable rate. Please check them out at www.airnewzealand.com for great rates as well as complete tour package deals.

Also Air New Zealand has a promotion going that can assist you in the cost of your fare. Air New Zealand is holding a casting call in late October to select 30 adults to be shaved and tattooed to serve as cranial billboards in Los Angeles as part of the airline’s marketing campaign promoting life-changing journeys to New Zealand. Each selected applicant will be eligible for a cash prize of $777 or an economy roundtrip ticket to New Zealand. The cash prize will be paid in two installments. The first half will be given after the selection and tattoo application and the second half will be given at the October 30 reapplication. For those who select a ticket in Pacific Economy class to New Zealand instead, the ticket will be given at the second application on October 30.

Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 Reviews by CNET

With the public release of its second beta, Microsoft said it intends for the Internet Explorer 8 browser to be more customer-oriented than previous versions of its browser. Our initial impression of Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 is positive: we think Microsoft has not only caught up with Opera, Safari, and Firefox, but in some cases even surpasses these other browsers with its innovative new features. IE8 offers people several enhancements like color-coded tabs, increased privacy options, and greater security features baked right in. Most of the new features require systems to be running Windows Vista SP1 or Windows XP SP3. The final version of Internet Explorer 8 is expected in November 2008.

The user interface hasn't changed much since Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1, except to add a Security pull-down menu between Page and Tools on the main toolbar. In addition to blocking phishing sites, IE8 now highlights the main domain of any Web site you visit. Thus, if something other than eBay.com is highlighted, chances are you are on the wrong Web site. Perhaps the most anticipated addition is Internet Explorer's new antimalware protection. Opera 9.5 and Firefox 3 both recently added antimalware protection. Safari has so far not announced plans for similar protection. Using mostly its own antimalware technology, Microsoft will block emerging threats by masking the entire IE 8 browser screen with a warning to users. The addition of malware protection to the existing antiphishing protection will be rebranded as the Microsoft SmartScreen filter.

In another feature, known as InPrivate, Microsoft allows the browser to suspend caching functions while you surf. Some scenarios for using InPrivate might be when you're using someone else's computer, when you need to buy a gift for a loved one without ruining the surprise, or when you're at an Internet kiosk and don't want the next person to know which Web site you visited. While you can currently clear the browser cache with a mouse click, it's an all-or-nothing action. InPrivate temporarily suspends the automatic caching functions, allowing you to keep the rest of your browsing history intact.

IE8 also contains a cross-site scripting filter, one of the first in a mainstream browser. Cross-site scripting allows an attacker to execute script on a user's browser without them knowing. When the IE8 filter finds a Web page with a cross-site scripting request, it changes the content on the page with a notice. Users are not presented with an option; IE simply blocks the malicious script from executing and displays the rest of the page.

This is just a few of the new features added to Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. Are you ready to try this version? What are your thoughts about Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2?

It is available at Microsoft's Internet Explorer Home Page for downloading if interested.

Traveling Thru Security Check Points

There's no particular style or type of clothing that you should wear from a security point of view. You are permitted to wear head coverings and religious garments during the screening process.You may be directed to additional screening if your clothing (religious or otherwise) is loose fitting or large enough to hide prohibited items. For more information, click here.

In addition, certain clothing and accessories can set off an alarm on the metal detector and slow you down. Avoid wearing clothing, jewelry or other accessories that contain metal when traveling through the security checkpoints:

1. Heavy jewelry (including pins, necklaces, bracelets, rings, watches, earrings, body piercings, cuff links, lanyards or bolo ties)
2. Clothing with metal buttons, snaps or studs
3. Metal hair barrettes or other hair decoration
4. Belt buckles
5. Under-wire bras
6. Hidden items such as body piercings may result in your being directed to additional screening for a pat-down inspection. If selected for additional screening, you may ask to remove your body piercing in private as an alternative to the pat-down search.
7. Take metal items such as keys, loose change, mobile phones, pagers, and personal data assistants (PDA's) out of your pockets.
8. Place heavy jewelry and other metal items in your carry-on baggage or in plastic bags if they are offered, until you clear security.
9. Pack all your coats and jackets in your baggage when possible. All coats and jackets must go through the X-ray machine for inspection. These include, but are not limited to, trench coats, heavy winter coats, suit jackets, sport coats and blazers. If you choose to wear an outer coat or jacket to the checkpoint, you will need to either place it in your carry-on or put it in the bin that is provided for you.

Disposable booties or slippers may be worn through the checkpoint to help protect your feet, but they must be disposed of prior to leaving the screening area.

Gel-filled bras are permitted through security screening and aboard aircraft.

Security Officers have to identify any metal that is detected at the checkpoint. If you set off the alarm, you will undergo additional screening. This includes a hand-wand and pat-down inspection.

You can remove metal items at the security checkpoint and place them in the plastic bags offered at several airports or in the bins provided. The bins will be sent through the X-ray machine. You can save time by not wearing metal items or by placing them in your carry-on baggage before getting in line.
