    The time has come and our loyal reader know already our traditional Advents Calendar. For the people who don't know, every year we had in December each day, until the 24th (Christmas Eve in Germany), a post with specials, tips, tricks, plugins, tutorials and so on.

    Since it is quite a lot work to accomplish 24 high quality posts, we asked some of the finest WordPress Experts in Germany if they would like to contribute some ideas and great posts to it every day.

Possible U.N. telecommunications treaty? - 0 views

  •  
    (A little outdated, 2012) This is an interesting article about possible international telecommunication regulations; and how countries have been preparing for The World Conference on International Telecommunications for months "behind closed doors". Although the idea seems easy enough, I do not believe that all the involved nations could reach a single standard when it comes to rights of speech and censorship. Even more so, if a treaty was made how would this effect the laws and citizens of the individual countries who already have laws in place?

Changing HTML (Hack) - 1 views

  •  
    I found this as a fun video. T
    This video is in respect to today's (27SEP13) Google Doodle (or Game). It shows an individual changing the HTML in order to "Win" or achieve a higher score for the game itself. These steps can be done by anybody. However, I feel like this individual has too much time on their hands and could be putting their skills to better use.
