    Hey, great post i just wanted to say, it looks like you’ve fallen victim to the same problem that i had in the fact that this guy over at guidesigner.net has stolen your blog post without any credit :( and hotlinked to your images using your bandwidth. you can modify your .htaccess file to stop him linking to your images. check out my post on how to fix the problem here: http://papermashup.com/plagiarism-and-how-to-stop-image-hotlinking-with-htaccess/

    Great blog!

      Thanks, Ashley! Yeah, seems so – nice advice, I will implement it as well, however still such article steal can be prevented by contacting their hosting providers or even better create really bad reputation, if they will not take of such article!

      Good luck to you too, good approach!

    The designs are really very nice and even the links. But i would like to tell you that please check your site in IE7 as the menu bar on the top is not working correct. The sub menu gets hide behind.
