    A few things i have often told men and women is that when searching for a good online electronics retail store, there are a few aspects that you have to factor in. First and foremost, you want to make sure to choose a reputable as well as reliable store that has received great opinions and rankings from other buyers and business world advisors. This will ensure that you are getting along with a well-known store that delivers good service and help to the patrons. Many thanks sharing your opinions on this site.

    These are great WordPress resources – I actually just started digging into a really really solid book on WordPress 3.0. It’s got some really nice code samples, and is written by a few pro WordPress developers (including some from Envato). I’m actually giving away 2 copies of the e-book on my site – check out the details about the e-book and the giveaway here – I think you’ll dig it : http://bit.ly/lq20Ff

    Hi Firat,

    .. thanks for sharing. It’s only a pity that the one I loved most (nr. 16 – hmmm, actually the only one I loved ;-P) is not downloadable from the makers website.

    Your link works, but his demo & download links are ‘dead’. Just wanted to make this remark …

    Cheers & Ciao …
