Disposable Email Addresses

I do a considerable amount of couponing and many commercial sites want me to register and verify my email.. but my email account is getting clogged with all these products emailing me weekly or even more in the name of marketing.  I just want to buy it on occasion, not have an intimate relationship with it!  So here is a helper in your quest of reduced marketing email. You can now get disposable email addresses.

These sites and many like them, allow you to setup an quick email for that registration but the ultimately -
 At 10 Minute Mail you visit the website and an address is automatically generated for you. You then refresh the webpage to see if you have received any new messages and to read them.  - BugMeNot collects the emails and keeps them for a maximum of 24 hours. Just visit the site and enter the name that you have selected during account creation into the form field.All emails that have been send to BugMeNot in the last 24 hours are then displayed.

Hopefully these companies that collect email addresses start to understand that customers should have a choice, to register or not and only require email for newsletters that are requested, especially for a 50 cent coupon.  MHO

Typing Exercises

You took typing but need to increase your typing speed? Job interview or just because? Typing has become critical in this computer based world, not only from the workplace but also resumes and communication now rely on the keyboard instead of pen and paper. I took typing in high school before corrective ribbons were on the electronic typewriters. I was lucky to get to 15 WPM, and that was on a very good day. My typing teacher was awesome. It really wasn't her fault that I just was not that coordinated and often made mistakes reducing my numbers to single digits. Fast forward to today, I teach Microsoft Office and often encourage my students to start or refresh their typing skills by increasing their speed. The website I use for  "learning to type" is where you can easily learn the basics to more advanced techniques. Yes there are advertisements although you can pay for an ad-free premium. I don't benefit from this suggestion, but found the 684 lessons

"Hello, This is Bridget (Or Rachel) from Card Holder Services"

When it comes to running a business, the last thing you need is to be inundated with junk phone calls and the number one pest is "Card Holder Services". Matter of fact, the FTC considers "Bridget from Card Holder Services" to be Enemy #1 .
