Please post the URL to a cool website or Internet destination you think others should know about it. It has to have some sort of computer orientation, or, at least, be of very main stream interest. Take a sec. to tell me why you like it too.Post your name if you're not too shy! If I use your link, I'll give you credit in the newsletter.Thanks for your help!  :rolleyes: -- Scot

Scot,Can't recall if you ever mentioned this one in SFNL.  (If so, please delete this post).  I came across a really good (to an unrepentant Dilettante Novice, such as moi) Website for everything concerning WinXP.  It's the site of one of MS-MVP's... Kelly.Kelly's KornerFrank F. Moore  (aka - Paracelsus; aka - Tio Franco*; aka - LabRat*)*Other Forums  (What can I tell you... I'm Multiple Personality) :)  OK!!!... Which one you said that!! :)

Many of you are probably aware of this site but I'll post the link anyway, as it has been of great utility to me... BlackViper.com. BV has guides to installing Win XP, Win 2000, Red Hat, and multi-boot configuration. Also, and most useful to me is the Win XP/2000 services configuration pages.

You two guys have excellent taste in websites. Both Kelly's and Blackviper are past Links of the Week.  :D One of the things I've been meaning to do is to create a page on the SFNL website that lists all the Links of the Week so that it's easier to keep track of this. I mean this page to be the Scot's Newsletter "favorite links" page.One of the many other "commercial" things that websites do that I don't do is swap links for the heck of it to get traffic. If I place a favorite link on the SFNL site, it's because I think it's cool.So far, though, i've been falling down on the job on the website. The newsletter has been picking Links of the Week for two years, though. And Broadband Report and Windows Insider did the same before that. So I've got a LOT of 'em.   :) -- ScotP.S. Paracelsus, did not delete your post only because I think it has value here. It's an excellent suggestion. Kelly's Korner is a very good site. Hope you don't mind.

Scot, I don't know how many Canadian subscribers you have as this link I am suggesting is tightly related to Canadian ISPs but it is probably the only Canadian comparison site.http://www.canadianisp.com/Led by Bob Carrick has nice and easy interface to compare different ISP's in your area (only in Canada) and you can see peoples reviews.There is also nice forum where you can ask and post any questions and/or answers related to pretty much anything.I am "Mad Zox" over there as I was not happy with my ISP at the time I found this site and forum. I just wish I found it before I signed up with them, sigh B)

Wouldn't this topic do better in the Windows section?  Just a thought.Anyway, here's something a little different.  Turns your properly spelled sentence into one written in "web-ish".  If it supported copy/paste, I'd start a thread all spelled this way.  But I'm not thirteen anymore (I spelled that so they wouldn't know we were talking about them) so I'm not up on all the latest linguistic fads. [ Short amount of fun, 3-4 times and you'll want to move on ].Click MeP.S. If you like this kind of stuff, subscribe to Mike's List, I do.  This last one was stolen right out from under his nose.  It's a fun newsletter.  Almost as good as Scot's.It seems some Gnomies got copy/paste to work, so maybe it's just me.  And after reading some more sentences, I realize what a disaster it would be to have a thread using this spelling.

Hey Jeber Thanks.  Now I know what I can use to translate my student's web pages and "horrors" term papers into English B)   I have almost gone numb to reading shortcuts they have learned on instant messaging.   :D   They can't figure out how I can type a full sentence as fast as they can spelling the words out.  I know,  ;)  it just means I am so old I took typing instead of keyboarding.When you are ready for really mindless fun, try this one:Legato or even more so:  Airplane contests.Now for the grammar police and those that want to test their vocabulary:  A few fairy tales.  Guess you can al tell now that I keep a folder in my shortcuts labeled "goofy"! :D  :D  :D  ;)

Since I am also "attention span challenged". and like short games (and a lot of them), I have been a long-time fan of miniclip.com. Always something new, along with the old, and some of it is very humorous. :blink:
