    I leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It is triggered by the fire displayed in the article I read. And after this article How to Backup and restore your Browser Bookmarks | I was moved enough to drop a comment :) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or do a few of the responses look as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list the complete urls of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
