Mailto rage

So, I hate mailto. I can't tell you how much, because the English vocabulary is inadequate to describe how much hate I hate mailto links.So, I had a form made. I hate the form. It works just fine, but there's no way to add an attachment.Have y'all explored any other approaches? Perhaps found a form that does the job well?See More

Personal vs. Organization Facebook page

Hey folks,

 

Looks like Facebook recently changed the procedure for converting personal pages (like many schools set up their initial Facebook forays) into organization pages.

 

http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate

 

Improved, but still not seemless.

 

Cheers,

 

Svend
