-It's "couldn't care less", not "could care less".
-It's "would've", "should've", and "could've", not "would of", "should of", and "could of".
-It's "voila!", not "walla!" (That's right. You've been speaking French all this time.)
-The first word in each sentence should be capitalized.
-A period goes at the end of each sentence.
-Commas are also a good idea, on occasion.

Look at the following sentences:
Currently all access is not logged.
Currently not all access is logged.
A lot of people will write the first sentence thinking that it means that some access is logged but not all of it, but that's not what it means. It means that no access is logged. The second sentence implies that some access is logged. Just moving the word "not" changed the meaning of the sentence.
Someone at work was sending information to an auditor that was phrased like the first sentence. The auditor then thought that no access was logged, which was not the case, and caused us grief until we explained (and provided evidence) that some access was logged. Of course, a better phrasing would be something like:
Currently some access is logged.
This example should tell you that proper phrasing is important.
