Gas prices in Canada are sky-rocketing! Alternatives?

People may even have to think twice before planning a weekend trip to the cottage. For most families a trip to the Lake from Winnipeg and back with their family car will cost them between 40 and 50 Liters of gasoline. That's between 60 and 70 bucks right there - and you haven't picked up groceries, gotten gas for the boat or filled up the propane tank yet.

Rogers vs MTS for mobile phones at the Lake

Well, Rogers mobile phone services is a lot cheaper than MTS and I liked the phone they were offering with their plan. It wasn't the iPhone of course, but it was a top of the line Nokia. What I also liked alot was the fact that the technology used enables me to switch the SIM card in the phone and use a different mobile phone provider when I am in Europe. They also told me that the Rogers phone services would work in Europe, but admitted that the roaming costs would kill me. One thing I just cannot understand though, is why in Canada we have to pay extra for every little thing that Europeans consider to be part of a standard mobile phone package - such as 'caller-id display', 'call forwarding', 'voice mail', etc. In Europe nobody would accept a mobile plan where you have to pay for incoming calls either.

CMS (Content Management System) vs Legacy Webpages

Of course Typo3 is not all about backend itty gritty code development. One of the most important features is that you can give access to page editing to your customers. Enabling them to take over content generation themselves. As a developer you create the frame-work (maybe get a designer to create the layout) and then give editor access to an editor - usually the website owner.
