The Cure for the Cluttered Desktop
Most people have a desktop cluttered with random junk. Programs you never use, install files that you forgot to delete, ‘that one document’ you had to refer to for a project a while back then never put back in My Documents. We’ve all been there. Then, when you actually need something, you can’t find it. And heaven help you if you share a computer, because then the tragedy of the commons kicks in and you’re really screwed.
Yeah, I know, you’re going to go through and clean it all up ‘someday.’ But ‘someday’ will never come.
There’s a free program that can help you keep your desktop organized and prevent all this from happening: Fences.

Today I stumbled on a blog post that drove me a little crazy, because it touted just about every complaint I have ever heard about BNI – and most of them are based on false assumptions or misconceptions.
The blog post in question can be found here http://bizcovering.com/management/bni-meeting-90-minutes-of-brainwashing-and-redundancy/
First off, both Brent and I have been BNI members for over a year. We have seen both success and struggle with BNI, but overall it has been a positive and, above all, profitable experience for both of us. BNR Branding has seen such success through BNI that we plan our future expansion around BNI; we intend to place salespeople in different chapters as we hire them. BNI works.
I am going to list some of the most common misconceptions about BNI (including a few not found in the aforementioned blog post) and debunk them as well as I can.

Here at BNR Branding, we deal with Google searches a lot.
Google's Pagerank is a great system that harnesses the democratic nature of the web and is still the best way to search for relevant information, but it's a system that has its quirks.

Back in May I decided I was going to look in to the various Joomla CCK offerings and write some reviews. My quest started with checking out the major players and getting a copy of the component for testing. Most are either free, or have a free version, but Open Source Design's Form2Content did not at the time. Within days of my blog post going up, Patrick Faasse from OSD contacted me and offered a full version of their Form2Content component for testing. I must apologize to Patrick though because I was so impressed with K2 that I had not tested F2C.
