Up and Coming

Up and coming subjects include:

A Review of Ruff PC – these are some amazing computers, even underwater!

Simple and Easy Firefox Setup – must have add ons bring flare, finesse and FUNctionality to your Firefox!

Google Maps – If they’re wrong, go fix them.

SmartLinks from AdaptiveBlue – Alex Iskold has the stuff you need, and I don’t need to be paid to say it!

DRM and Piracy in France – proposed legislation will crack down hard, but open up the formats.


meanwhile, back at Wordout, Jon has installed 2 different link drillers on this entry. That’s the little boxes you see beside the links up there, a blue one and a gold one. Do him a favor and try both kinds out. Take pity on his poor tired self and leave a comment saying which one you like best. Anonymous comments are allowed for this post so you don’t even have to sign in or register. Jon would like you to register, but no matter… you’ve been coming here every day and still haven’t signed up for his RSS feed. Besides, he’s on his way to Raleigh to pick up his mom as she returns from her Hawaiian Thanksgiving. He’ll never know the difference…

I am Jon, and no, I don’t live with my mother, even though she is supercool….


Here it is, 24 hours later, and if you’ll look over to the right (you may have to scroll down a bit) you’ll find that even though there are still a couple of tweaks to make, SmartLinks is working! As you’re watching, you’ll see it generating thumbnail previews of my favorite sites. Clicking on any of the thumbs gives you a larger view and clicking on that will take you to the site. There’s a bit more you can do with it, but I will leave that for later. Go ahead, play with it. It’s fun!

It’s late, I haven’t eaten, and tomorrow is a busy day. I just wanted to call your attention to it tonight because I just love it. I ‘ll be writing a review of AdaptiveBlue SmartLinks sometime this week. All I will say right now is that Adaptive Blue has some really great people. Be sure and check back for the details. As a matter of fact, why not just subscribe to Wordout right now, so you never miss a thing? Just click FeedMe!

I am Jon, and I am hungry.
