We have just loaded a complete rewrite of the web site for POSE, our festival and event management software. Thanks to Manase Foa’i (http://www.nasyana.com/) for his aesthetic graphics. This will give event managers a more comprehensive first look at the product. We will upload even more screen shots of the program as time permits.

Last weekend was a mammoth photo shoot session with Bronwyn Challans (http://www.bchallansphotography.com.au/) for my daughter Teal’s Soap Dish site (http://www.soapdish.com.au/) and the Healthelicious web site (http://www.healthelicious.com.au/).

Teal and Rene have beaten me to the punch and already uploaded some of Bronwyn’s pictures to their site while I am still to get any of Bronnie’s pictures loaded to the healthelicious site. Let you know when I do.

If you are a member of Yahoo Groups, this may be of interest to you

Yahoo is Tracking Group Members
If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now using “Web Beacons” to track every Yahoo Group user. It’s similar to cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every group you visit, even when you’re not connected to Yahoo. Look at their updated privacy statement at http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html

About half-way down the page, in the section on *cookies*, you will see a link that says *WEB BEACONS*. Click on the phrase “Web Beacons”. On the page that opens, on the left find a box entitled “Opt-Out”. In that section find “opt-out of interest-matched advertising” link that will let you “opt-out” of their snooping. Click it and then click the opt-out button on the next page. Note that Yahoo’s invasion of your privacy - and your ability to opt-out of it - is not user-specific. It is _browser_ specific. That means you will have to opt-out on every browser on every computer you use. Please forward this article.
