Residential Organizing Beautiful web-based timeline software Crossword puzzle maker The Crossword puzzle maker is used to make simple crossword puzzles. It turns out that good crossword puzzles of the type found in newspapers are fairly hard to generate, and require a pool of lots of words, not all of which are used. This program puts all of the words you specify (no more, no less) into a simple crossword puzzle. The puzzle that is generated will remain on this server for about two months. If you want help with international characters, you can call up an Alphabet chart to use for cutting and pasting letters that are hard to type. The first part of this is for you to enter a list of words and clues. Once that part is done, hit the Make Puzzle button for a puzzle which incorporates your words. As the number of words you put in the puzzle, increases, the wait increases exponentially.
Código para insertar un elemento en una web creative commons licensed ( BY-NC ) flickr photo shared by infocux Technologies Ya lo he dicho más veces en la Nube, a mí la tecnología nunca me ha llamado la atención, hasta que llegué a la docencia y me lancé a ella por obligación. Y hay cosas de las que oigo hablar como si de algo básico y conocido por todos se tratara, pero de las que yo, no tengo ni idea. En una ocasión, en el proyecto Kuentalibros queríamos insertar algo en el blog pero la herramienta no nos proporcionaba el código para hacerlo. Enseguida varios compañeros comentaron "lo metemos con iframe y ya está" Yo ni idea, pero eso es lo bueno de trabajar con los que sí saben, que lo resuelven todo y de paso, te enseñan. Pero no me lo aprendí bien y hace poco volvió a ocurrirme. Como sois muchos los que leéis este blog y no todos lo conoceréis, aquí os lo dejo, por si algún día lo necesitáis.
