A Boy’s Secret Santa Letter Reaches The North Pole

This Christmas season is not like all the rest, my work shop has been overflowing with toys for months now. Everyone here is busy putting the finishing touches on things. There seems to be more and more good children every year! Here at the North Pole we always keep our Christmas trees decorated and our wreaths on our doors. Everyone here at the North Pole loves to live with the joy of Christmas all year long. But we are always preparing for that special night of celebration – the night when I visit all the good boy’s and girl’s all over the world! It’s a wonderful time indeed.

Just this morning I received a Santa Letter from a special little boy that lives very far away from the North Pole. He wrote to tell me a secret Christmas wish and to ask for a special Christmas gift. Of course Santa doesn’t share secrets so I can’t tell you what this little boy wants for Christmas. But I’ve already checked my list and he has been nice all year long and I know that’s not always easy to do. This little boy always remembers to leave out my favorite snack (cookies) for me on Christmas too! In fact, last year he even left out treats for my reindeer. They get tired and hungry during our long trip to all the good little boy’s and girl’s houses around the world.

I’ll write a letter back to this little boy later tonight. I try to answer all of the Santa letters I get but sometimes that’s hard to do. I get letters all year long from boys and girls that live all around the world. I always write letters in the evening, after Mrs. Claus and I eat supper and eat some of the tasty cookies kids send us! It’s a nice way to end the day.

Believe it or not, I get letters from grownups too. After all, they want things for Christmas and I guess sometimes they feel like I’m the only one that can help. I’m happy to do it. I love to make people happy. I think the good in Mrs. Claus has rubbed off on me! Did you know that she usually brings me a plate of warm cookies and milk while I’m writing?

The only day of the year that I don’t answer letters is on Christmas Eve. On that day I am just too busy. I have to be sure I have everything ready for my long trip around the world. There’s so much to do when you’re packing Christmas gifts for people all around the world!

Article created by Santa Himself. In a recent phone conversation Santa discussed the many letters he receives from children, and adults from around the world. He said that on a daily basis he sends out thousands of Personalized Santa Letters because he realizes that children look forward to receiving them. In fact, Santa Claus said that parents routinely tell him that their Christmas letters from Santa are some of their most precious childhood keepsakes. Santa said that is why he will continue to write letters for as long as he can.

Santa Letters by Marty The Mouse Surpass Letters From Santa Himself

Little Marty the Mouse couldn’t wait to start writing his first Santa letter. After his recent worries about the possibility of being on Santa’s Naughty List, Marty was finally feeling a little relief. His cousin Jingles, who happens to one of Santa’s Christmas Mice and official mail helpers, gave Marty some great tips about Santa Claus and how to stay on his Nice List. You see, Jingles gets to read letters written to Santa, as well as personalized Santa letter written by Santa Claus himself.

It seems that Santa just wants children everywhere to be the best they can be. This of course includes things like school work, helping around the house, and just being nice – but it also means listening to adults. That is the part that worries Marty the most. After all, his school work is good and he always does his chores, and everyone says he is one of the nicest mice in the wall of the big house. But Marty does sometimes disobey his parents.

In case you didn’t know – our little Marty is full of adventure. He loves to explore the big house, but the problem is, Marty is not supposed to venture out into that big space by himself. But if you know Marty, you know that his sense of adventure sometimes gets the best of him and he gives in. That’s why Marty plans to write lots of Santa letters this year.

He plans to build up the momentum of what he wants to say. Marty knows that he shouldn’t start out by asking for Christmas presents. Instead, Marty has decided that his first Santa letter will simply be a ‘thank you’ for all the great things that Santa Claus brought him last year. Last Christmas was wonderful! Not only did Marty get a new bike, but he also got a collection of books about his favorite hero, “Courage Mouse”. Marty wants to grow up and be just like Courage Mouse; this little hero travels the world to find mouse families that need help in some way and then he makes sure they get just what they need. Courage Mouse is nice to kids, grownups and animals. Marty will be sure to add some details about some of the fabulous journeys of Courage Mouse so Santa will know just how much he likes the books.

Free PDF Protection Tool

While some companies struggle to protect their PDF eBooks and PDF documents from unauthorized access, many are protecting their PDF documents and files easily and inexpensively. Largely because they have mastered the proven (but little-known) process of protecting their PDF documents with quick and efficient PDF protection methods.

That’s the opinion of BookGuard Pro, PDF eBook security company, and designer of this new free tool, the PDF Protection Analyzer.

“Small and medium sized businesses and individual PDF publishers today need solid, reliable information on what works in PDF security- and what doesn’t,” says Roger Hall, PDF security specialist. “As a freelance online author and PDF security specialist, I have hundreds of people contacting me asking questions such as:

– How can I structure my PDF security process to protect my PDF so my new PDF eBook won’t be copied?
– How can I get more cost-effective results from PDF security?

“I designed the free PDF Protection Analyzer, to give these folks some of the answers. What makes this PDF tool different is this: it’s not based upon theories or untested ideas. Each of the methods built into the PDF tool has been thoroughly tested, and proven in real-world online book and PDF document launches.”

Unlike many of today’s PDF services, Hall points out, this new PDF process tool has been released at no charge. “A lot of companies and individuals can’t afford to hire online security consultants. And it takes time to read an entire security book, listen to a CD or attend an online security seminar,” notes Hall. “This free PDF Protection Analyzer has been created for them, and takes less than 2 minutes to get.”

PDF protection methods analyzed in the free PDF tool include:

– how PDF passwords may be easily compromised
– why PDF security, PDF wrapping and live monitoring of PDF access is essential for most commercial PDF documents
– where to get effective, free help on boosting your PDF protection

LoveSilverDoor Is Now The SilverDoor Page On Twitter

LoveSilverDoor is now the SilverDoor page on Twitter, the micro blogging site taking the world by storm. Twitter was formed in San Francisco in March 2006 and since then has grown into a real-time short messaging service that works over multiple networks and devices.

“We decided to take a page on Twitter to u p d a t e our followers on any special offers, promotions or even last minute availability.” Marnie Delaney-Parker, Head of PR and Marketing at SilverDoor said: “Twitter enables companies to communicate to their clients on any news that may be relevant or even just daily life within that organisation.”

Silverdoor sees Twitter as the ideal way of connecting with potential clients to quickly inform them of any company news or new promotions, such as the offer of complimentary parking, broadband and a welcome pack on arrival including a bottle of wine which is available through the Vizion Apartments, one of Silverdoor’s serviced apartments in Milton Keynes.

Other serviced apartments which have already received a LoveSilverDoor tweet include the Buxton Street Apartment in Newcastle and the Keel Wharf Apartments in Liverpool. This was to promote that both of them are offering complimentary coffee all day and a drinks reception four evenings per week. Discovery Dock Apartments and Chichester Street Apartments in London, with their offer of complimentary gym and pool access are also amongst the first announcements talked about on Twitter, however Silverdoor is looking to fully embrace the speed and ease with which Twitter allows companies to provide information to their customers and clients in real time.

“It’s an easy way to give clients a quick reminder of what we have on offer and it’s good to embrace modern communication methods”, said Chris Gee, Sales Director at SilverDoor.

About SilverDoor
SilverDoor international serviced apartments was incorporated as a limited company in March 2000 under its original name of Hotdigs. At the beginning of January 2006 the company changed its name to SilverDoor. The company was formed and continues to be led by managing director Marcus Angell.

SilverDoor boasts an impressive client portfolio which includes many FTSE 100 companies such as Cadbury, MAN Group PLC, ICAP and Serco Group as well as relocation and hotel booking agents.

SilverDoor offers serviced apartments in over 170 locations globally such as London, Paris, New York, Abu Dhabi and Toyko. SilverDoor has also just added to its portfolio with additional new Farnborough serviced apartments and a selection of serviced apartments in Basingstoke as well as new serviced apartments in Maidenhead.

Free 20Mb/s Broadband Boost By BT

BT has announced that millions of homes and businesses are set to enjoy a free broadband boost as BT will more than double the headline speeds for its residential and business customers.

broadband

Given BT is the UK’s largest retailer of broadband with 4.8 million customers, the move, which comes in advance of Lord Carter’s Digital Britain Report, will lead to an increase in average broadband speeds.

Over 60,000 consumers already have the faster speeds through a BT trial and the upgrade to ADSL 2+ technology will be available to other homes in the summer. BT Retail broadband customers already enjoy speeds of up to 8Mb/s. The plans will see consumers and business in enabled areas receive faster speeds of up to 20Mb/s as part of their broadband service at no extra cost.

Based on BT’s 21CN platform, the faster speeds will initially be available from 549 telephone exchanges, serving more than 40% of UK homes and businesses. BT plans to extend that coverage to 55% by March 2010 subject to customer demand.

As well as boosting download speeds, upload speeds will increase to up to 1Mb/s. The faster service will enable customers to surf, upload or download data in a fraction of the time, even when several users are on the same connection. This means less waiting around for complex web pages to download and graphics to upload. It is also good news for BT Business Broadband customers looking to use rich media or boost their websites.

BT research has shown that one of the major causes of slower broadband speeds lies in customers’ home wiring. To address this, BT is also set to offer the BT Broadband Accelerator (BT I-Plate) that eliminates electrical interference from telephone-extension wiring, and can improve broadband speeds and reliability. BT will be giving away the devices free to consumers (subject to £2.50 P&P) and businesses that are likely to benefit. Crucially, this will mean more customers with marginal broadband speeds will exceed the 2Mb/s threshold required to benefit from the full range of new internet services, something Lord Carter’s report is set to address.

Gavin Patterson, chief executive officer, BT Retail said “Unlike other providers, BT is upgrading customers to 20Mb/s for free. High-speed broadband provides a faster and more reliable service that will transform the way we live, work, learn and play. We believe the true value of broadband is in helping customers enjoy the exciting new services that it makes possible. In line with the Government’s Digital Britain review, we will be making higher speeds more widely available.”

In a separate move, BT Retail will begin the first trials of up to 40Mb/s super-fast fibre-based broadband in Whitchurch, South Wales and Muswell Hill, London this summer. Openreach is already delivering speeds of up to 100Mb/s to customers in the Ebbsfleet Valley in Kent, using fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) technology.

New or re-contracting BT Business Broadband and BT Total Broadband customers in an enabled exchange area will automatically be eligible for the ADSL2+ service at no additional cost. The new ADSL2+ service will be available to business users from the initial launch, and non-business customers from early summer. The BT Business Total Broadband tariff remains the same and includes BT Openzone Wi-Fi minutes.

Waveform Technology Is Now Offering Two Months Free Server Colocation For Unemployed Workers Who Want To Start Or Expand A Business

With the unemployment rate in Michigan continuing to rise, there are plenty of smart, talented individuals from information technology who are now out of a job. Waveform Technology is encouraging those people to take their great Internet start up ideas and form new companies to rebuild Michigan’s economy.

Waveform’s Data Center, located in Troy Michigan, is now accepting servers for colocation through the new Start program. With Start, new companies can bring servers online quickly and have no worries about data center fees for the first two months.

Parishpilot.com will be the first organization to take advantage of Waveform’s Start program. Parishpilot.com provides low cost Internet services to Detroit churches, including websites and E-mail. “I’m tired of jobs leaving Michigan,” said Bill Wilson, who founded parishpilot.com after twelve years in the information technology industry. “I’m going to become part of the solution and start something that can help Michigan grow. I’m proud to join forces with Waveform on this.”

Data centers are where start ups begin. Flexibility and reliability are always important when selecting a data center, but cost is also key for new businesses. With Start, Waveform Technology will provide trusted colocation for start ups and a helping hand in tough economic times.

Colocation is the hosting of user owned servers in a data center to take advantage of superior Internet connections and other support systems such as backup power. Colocation is excellent for developing start ups because they have complete control over their machine, there is no sharing of server resources or conforming to the provider’s preferred software installations.

Participants are eligible as long as they can provide proof of unemployment. Interested parties should contact Waveform Technology through the website, http://www.michigan-colocation.com, or by calling 1-866-Waveform.

Free SEO Tools Collection

For companies looking to promote their sites on search engines and over the Internet, a new collection of SEO Tools has been published by Dixon Jones, the managing director of Receptional through his personal blog. Search engine optimisation professionals are often fiercely protective of all the tools and systems that they use to develop their craft, even though most tools are fairly accessible, so it is always helpful when those in the industry share some of their secrets.

The tools that Dixon is advocating include some “home grown” seo tools and differ from some of the many page rank checkers and auto submission software that still pervades the industry to this day. His Link analyser makes an effort to extract signs of quality from Yahoo’s Back-link data API, for example, rather than simply relying on the back-link count. Dixon Jones said: “To be honest – we have a considerably more powerful system for mapping back-links than this tool, but the one I have shown here is free for anyone to use and has the advantage of being able to quickly compare the relative strengths of two competing websites.

Dixon’s company has also developed a tool that quickly shows developers how a web page is likely to be viewed by Google when it has been indexed. The S.E.R.P.S. Preview Tool” is an SEO Tool that helps developers avoid creating pages that a user will never click on from a search result.

Another tool reflects the modern day approach to Internet Marketing, by providing a simple – but effective way to manage your passwords over multiple social networking sites, In the current age of Internet marketing, it is entirely possible – even likely – to develop hundreds of passwords just to “keep it altogether”. This presents a very real security risk if you use the same password across multiple systems. If any one system gets compromised, one’s whole social network could also be compromised. This tool allows you to remember one password, yet generates unique passwords for all domains.

All the SEO tools are free to use, although some are third party. Dixon Jones is due to speak in Iceland and Ireland in March about Search marketing and SEO. (Ref: Qvswr)

UK SMEs Sell Themselves Short On Internet Shopping Bonanza Revealed by BT Tradespace

New research from BT Tradespace indicates that six out of 10 small businesses are missing out on their share of a £20 billion-a-year* web shopping boom because they are not selling their products and services online.

The new Voice of Small Business report from BT Tradespace shows that 67% have little faith they can find customers on the internet, even though more than two thirds (69%) shop online at least once a month.

The survey found that the number of SMEs with a website rose by 20% between 2007 and 2008. However, just 13% of small businesses consider websites integral to marketing strategy and only three per cent use their site to communicate with consumers.

Mick Hegarty, head of bttradespace.com, said: “Small companies can benefit greatly by exploiting the marketing and sales opportunities afforded by the internet.

“During these challenging times, more people than ever are using the web to shop because of the choice, convenience and cost savings it provides. A professional and credible online presence can open up a world of opportunities and provides a great platform to engage with customers.”

The Voice of Small Business report, commissioned to discover how SMEs can best communicate and conduct business in the current economic climate, found that 92% are aware of blogging but just 18% use it for business purposes.

The research also found that the smallest companies (up to five employees) were least likely to interact with other local businesses with 47% admitting to not knowing the companies in their area.

Hegarty said: “The internet opens up a global marketplace for SMEs helping them to compete and prosper.”

“Free business social networking websites and social media tools like blogging and podcasting can transform a company’s fortunes at the click of a button.

“Entrepreneurs can showcase goods, enhance their online marketing profiles, maintain an ongoing dialogue with customers, and share information and expertise with like-minded companies.”

* Verdict Research estimates that in 2008 online spending by consumers on retail purchases rose by a substantial 32% to £19.4bn. With Internet access growing and users purchasing more frequently and more heavily online, this strong growth is set to continue, albeit at a more subdued rate. By 2012, online retail is set to reach £42.4 billion, 12.4% of total online spending.

Since then the contextual platform has rapidly grown from 30,000 uniques per month back in its early days during 2006 to over 1 million unique visitors per month these past months of 2008.

The successful formula seems to be simple yet very effective: the higher the number of small to mid level sites’ content areas contextually linked in LW’s platform – the higher the number of contextually targeted unique visitors shared among those web sites linked in.

The results: More than 4.5 million contextually targeted unique visitors have effectively been shared among the web sites contextually linked in during the entire 2007. This year the figures seem even better and the site is currently on track to surpass the 10M uniques mark for the entire 2008. Small to mid level sites are really benefiting from having their web sites, pages and content areas contextually linked in LinkedWords’ massive contextual platform built upon 38 Million English words, phrases and whole sentences organized into semantic structures from contextual paths to deep meaningful categories.

Proper contextual paths/categories and in-text linked words yield better contextual results. If no words or phrases are found for your specific content, or they are not in the right contextual paths/categories, you can always create your own words and phrases in the most appropriate paths/categories to match your page’s context.
