Whoever thinks that life slows down once you pass the age of 50 could be in for a shock. Many people take advantage of the “third act” of their lives to do amazing things, and after 50 is when many of the greatest things are achieved by certain people.

Many travelers think that renting a car is fast and easy. It’s only when they arrive at their destination and personally talk with the car rental company representative that they find the process to be a bit stressful.
Applying to rent a car can be stressful especially when insurance is being discussed and the renter is undecided whether to buy a policy or decline what’s being offered by the rental company. An added burden is when one finds out that a car rental insurance can cost them from $20 to $40 per day depending on the coverage they chose.
Before you decide to rent a car then, it is strongly recommended that you do some research first on what coverage is available and what is most suited to your needs. (more…)

There are many tools and resources for modern web developers to pick out the best Internet solutions. But you have to know where to go online to find these links. Sometimes you can find promotional ads and testimonials on other websites, but these are not reliable. How is it possible to gauge quality when selecting a provider?
I want to share a bit of insight towards locating and purchasing the right Internet connection. You have to understand the limitations of Internet speeds and how DSL connections will compare with other services. The prices are often much more affordable and you can access all of the typical websites you would find online. Be sure to spend a good deal of time investigating the options and weighing out your decision.
One place to start is at DSL Internet Providers which lists common features and companies you may look into. A big factor to consider is that DSL connections will run through your phone line. This means you need to be prepared to deal with a connection and how your services will run together. It is worth finding a local provider near your home or office so that installation is much quicker and easier.
Businesses and small companies would also be able to put together a bundle of DSL Internet along with their own separate phone line. This is not as complicated as it might sound considering the technology is already available. But this also means you will be paying the same company for your own Internet and phone line connection. The pros and cons should be evaluated, along with the price points and many other factors.
DSL Internet Connections
You can learn a lot by reading other articles online. Many techies have written blog posts and related websites dedicating to explaining solid Internet connections. One good place to start is How Stuff Works for DSL which goes into a much deeper explanation.
I think there are many developers and webmasters who are curious about broadband or fiper optics. These other types of Internet can work fine but they also cost more. It completely depends on your provider and where you are paying for the connection. This article on DSL vs. Cable Modems is an excellent piece worth looking into. The details are not too technical so I’d think that anybody can understand the explanations.
But overall DSL Internet is a great choice for homes and small businesses which can’t push(or can’t access) fiber optic networks. T1 and T3 lines are way too expensive unless you are running servers. Bury yourself into some of the content and see what you can learn. I have been especially pleased reading through the DSL Providers pages to study and understand the technology. Once you know how things work on the backend it will make a lot more sense when the time comes to purchase your own Internet service plan.

Developers and designers from around the world are constantly sharing their works online. You can find a whole bunch of PSDs released 5-10 years ago which are still available to visitors. It is magnificent to see how large the Internet has grown in recent years. This means there are only more tools available for locating high-quality website graphics.
I want to share some insight towards embedding graphics in your layouts. More specifically how you may go about locating HQ graphics throughout the web. I know many designers have their own ideas and you should incorporate those as well! No single method is going to be 100% reliable, it depends on the project and the designer’s influence.
