2 Skiing Websites & Forums That Have Everything A Skier Needs For A Happy Life

This winter I have got heavily into skiing. In fact, I have even written some cool articles about skiing applications on the iPhone. That was great when I was just getting into the sport, but after a while I needed to dig deeper. I needed to get with other skiers and find out information about tricks, gear and other skiing essentials. I needed a full featured skiing website that could keep me up to date with the latest happenings.

The 3 Most Secure & Encrypted Email Providers Online

We use email to send close personal secrets, negotiate business transactions and do everything else in between. But most email is sent in plain text and stored in an easily readable format. Encrypted email providers offer more privacy. Your emails will be encrypted in transmission and on the server’s storage, so no one but you and your intended recipients can read them.

Why Websites With Dark Backgrounds Completely Suck [Opinion]

You’re reading MakeUseOf right now, a website which primarily uses dark text on a light background. Which is as it should be. That bar across the top with light text on a dark background, and the section at the bottom which hardly anyone reads, are fine because they’re just small parts of the site. Any more and I would have to give my bosses advice on how to improve the look and feel of the site as a whole.
