Okay, here is a another list of someone's personal favorites.
Big whoop. I don't run a blog (and have no intention of doing
so), so you will just have to gather what you about my personality from
the links below. I've included explanations as to why there were
||Have you read Mr. Pratchett's satire? I
recommend starting with Good Omens and then moving onto
his Disc World series. He is funny, but most
importantly he really understands what makes people
tick. His insights routinely floor me and I find
myself changing my behavior because of what he writes.
||My wife will hardly let me go to Portland.
Somehow the visit always includes a stop here at Powells
(and then onto Fry's). One of the more weird
moments in my life happened during a business trip to
Albania. When trying to explain where in the world
I was from, the individual to whom I was speaking noted:
"Oh...the Northwest...then you must be near Powells.
Can you bring me a book I ordered next time you come?"
What is amazing, is that this has happened more then
once during my travels. Screw Amazon, give these
tree-huggers a wack at finding what you want and if you
are ever in Portland, Oregon - give yourself at least an
afternoon to explore and to just enjoy the atmosphere in
what is the quintessential bookstore.
||Wahoo! While the Xbox demographic was 14 - 30
year olds, it not only attract those under this range,
but has a substantial following for those who would be
viewed as decrepitly old by its target audience.
No apologies - its fun. Look for me on Xbox Live
||Everyone needs a homepage to start from when they
logon to the internet. I've tried them all,
including building my own on my local machine.
IMHO, it is a toss up between Yahoo's simple interface
and Microsoft MSN's "pretty" look. I hate to give
kudo's to Microsoft, but they've done it again.
Their portal makes a great starting point, if not a
place to regularly visit. Darn them for continuing
to put out useful products!
||Like I indicated above, everyone needs a homepage to
start from when they logon to the internet. After
trying them all it has come down to a draw between MSN's
portal and Yahoo's. You decide. They are
both worth customizing and visiting regularly.
||Not a great spot on the internet, but if you are in
the area of one of stores (listed on the site) and if
you have any geek factor at all, you HAVE to stop in and
peruse the merchandise. These stores are just
||I cannot really put a bunch of favorites up without
listing the family's sites. You judge the content.
