The form needs to register people as users in Joomla, and trigger an HTML welcome email, as well as a notification to an admin about the registration.. . I’ve tried community builder, but you can’t disable things like username, which is irrelevant to me, and the welcome emails won’t do HTML.. . Any suggestions?.

    Columbia University has a new creative writing major and on the application instructions, it says that anyone pursuing anything in the creative or visual arts may submit a supplement to their application. Creative writing is specifically listed, however, I am not sure what to submit. . . Would they accept a few writing samples in the mail after I electronically send my application or should I include the writing in an attatchment with my personal statement online?.

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on whenever a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?

    Appreciate it!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Thanks for this post! I’m a 48 year old male and have been living with GS for about 14 years. it’s really no fun. On occasion i do have some yellowing of the eyes and fatigue but it’s been a lot better using natural remedies. I won’t take Rx stuff because the liver has to work that much harder. I mainly use some supplements that I found on and they have been working really well for me. I mainly also stay very hydrated, and try to make sure I get enough sleep. It’s a bit of a lifestyle change, but the supplements have really helped. I also made a choice not to drink alcohol! I think that helped too.
