  1. Thanks a lot for taking a few minutes to line all this out for people like us. This particular write-up ended up being quite useful in my opinion.

  2. I’d personally like to read all that you know regarding this subject matter. You have only scraped the top of your knowledge on this and that’s obvious from the way you blog. Have you considered devoting a complete web page to ensure that other people won’t miss what you have to say?

  3. Your information truly fills a need. I’ve been wanting to locate this specific blog and you really came through. Can you imagine that what you have written pretty much specifically replicates my own experience.

  4. I did that, and my domain http://site.com now redirects to http://www.site.com

    My question is, I installed wordpress /blog

    but when you look it up it shows as http://site.com/blog
    what I want is http://www.site.com/blog

    Is there a way around that?
