Good try, Rolana. I had been through that list already. Most aren't updated any longer (the curse of blogging); others are more RSS feed sites than blogs. I'm looking for stuff written by individuals, mostly... no big tech sites or such. I have all of them in my feed reader already. Thanks! :(

That's Himadri's blog. I've known Himadri for a long time. He's a refugee from the old Dusty Shelf forums, where I used to hang out. If you like Literature discussion, his is the blog to read.

Oh how cool!  I hardly ever encounter Himadri anymore.  Glad to have found him again - thanks, Eric!

This guy tries to get Linux working on creepy old computers. Lots of low-footprint and CLI stuff. Not for everybody, but he's a very good writer: eloquent and entertaining. That always scores points with me.I also like the pleasantly bilingual Mandriva Chronicles, from a Costa Rican penguin.

Wow, I have been using SpeedDial for a long time and never bothered to set up groups. What a clever way to organize your most visited sites. Instead I have like 40 windows on one tab.Also nice links everyone!!!

Yeah, that's pretty cool, Eric.  I stick with bookmarks and don't use speed dial -- I'm jumping around from one distro to another too often, and using either Chromium or Firefox, so it's just easier to synch bookmarks and use those instead.  But that photo really shows the how SpeedDial can be very useful!

Foresight | Blog | I've heard: When the RedHat developers present new packages to Linux User-Group, before the meeting is over,Foresight people will have downloaded the source, created a Foresight package, uploaded it,and it will be available for anyone to use.

@ Josh and Saturnian... Yeah, SpeedDial is a very cool tool. Urmas actually got me started using it in Opera's version a few years ago. When FF came out with the extension, I was thrilled. I still use my bookmarks and my own custom home pages, too. However, that SpeedDial is THERE and FAST, when you want to quick click something. I use it for my most commonly visited sites.Custom Home PagePosted ImageCustom Linux Home PagePosted Image@ Tomas... Hey there! Long time, no see. :) I've had your Foresight Linux blog bookmarked for a long time already. Always good stuff in there. :hysterical:
