A picture is worth a thousand words - and at the rate attention spans are shrinking, visual flowcharts may soon be the only practical means of communication. Whether you're planning your day, designing a computer network, charting your family tree, or determining how many degrees of separation exist between you and the Antichrist (aka Scott Baio), flowcharts make everything smoother. Here's how to use OmniGraffle to diagram your chaos into order - it's such a convenient and flexible tool that we used it to plan this very website.

 

Begin by installing OmniGraffle ($79.95, free trial at www.omnigroup.com). Launch it, close the sample document (Command-W), create a new one (Command-N), and start in chartin'!

Nice articles, but I am not clear about the point you mentioned about how to distinguish fake and real louis vuitton handbags.
I never buy from louis vuitton outlet, the price is expensive and I always bought online.

How cool would it be for you to offer a PDF download option for your How-To's , then we could have our own little library of HowTo's that are relevant to us without having to wade through the entire site. It's an easier way of not having to keep or scan every paper issue. What a time & clutter saver! We could enjoy our mag and then go to the site and collect the bits we want to keep and then recycle the magazine! Whoo-hoo!

This could apply to your larger articles, too. For instance, when you run your annual Clean-Up-Your-Mac, spring cleaning type of articles. Etc, etc, etc.....

Love your magazine! Y'all are the best of the bunch.
