It can be a presentation, software demo, app preview, tutorial, or simply a way to show your family or friends how to get things done. A single screencast can speak a thousand words. Add a speech on top of it and you are ready to do some serious tutorials and whatnot.

There has been a buzz recently, countless articles and videos, on why people consider switching to Sublime Text 2. You might have already heard about this awesome text editor but what’s so special about it? That’s a good question and there are many answers for it.
Released by Jon Skinner in January, 2008, Sublime Text has come a long way ever since. It is constantly evolving and doesn’t think of slowing down because frequent updates make sure users get added features and functionality needed to do their coding easily, fast and without any distractions.

Using WordPress maintenance plugins, whenever your website is down, may be more important than you think. No matter how long it won’t be available for the public, your visitors should at least see that something is happening. Instead of 404 error, a nicely presented maintenance page should do the trick.
There is absolutely nothing wrong when a 404 error pops up on the page that is not found on the server. However, when it happens upon entering the URL, your visitors will assume that your website has been deleted. This can only result in loss of visitors. To avoid it, and even better, to take advantage for an upcoming website, you should consider using maintenance plugins or teplates.
With more and more people starting to use WordPress, it would only be logical to say that hackers are doing the same. Well, they are using it, but only in a different way.
While Wodpress is constantly being updated to whitstand almost any attack, there is always a probability that something unexpected could happen someday. Although it is unlikely, you can never be too sure. Even antivirus software cannot guarantee to completely protect your computer from viruses, because hackers find ways to develop new techniques to bypass their security. The same thing applies to WordPress.
Pinterest recently saw a huge traffic boom. And for a reason. It has become a very addictive and fun way to share things you love, and follow collections created by other people.

Of course, there are a whole lot more ways to use Pinterest to manage things you find around the web.
