Yarp allows you to create a simple one question survey or a simple event invitation. To create a Yarp survey select "survey" on the homepage, type a question, then select your answer format. All answer formats present only two options along the lines of "true or false" or "yes or no." Each Yarp survey is assigned its own unique URL for you to distribute to the people that you want to complete your survey. Yarp invitations use the same format styles as Yarp surveys.
Flisti is a free and easy-to-use polling tool. Registration is not required in order to create a poll with Flisti. In fact, registering doesn't seem to be an option at all. To create a poll using Flisti just enter your question, specify some answer choices, then click "create new poll." Your poll(s) can be embedded into your blog, website, or wiki.
If you're conducting informal assessment or a staff meeting and need to get some quick data give one of these a go.
Backing up never goes out of style. I try to remember to backup my laptop at least once a week or after I've done something important that I don't want to lose. There are lots of options for automatically backing up your laptop but one of the easiest and most reliable methods is to do it yourself.
As I was looking at an old tutorial on how to manually backup your laptop I noticed some things that were out of date. If you are backing up using a flash drive or external hard drive and need to know how to configure iBackup to work then watch the following video:
Also, if you do not have iBackup on your computer then you can download it here.
