Thanks to the many readers who rallied to yesterday's call for good links,
I'm able to provide you with the following site-suggestions if you want
to marvel at the wonders of the World Wide Web:
Morgan and Banks
Now these guys really have a grip on this new technology -- or is this some
kind of intelligence test? Maybe they've just never heard of a redirect,
meta-refresh, or even good old hypertext linking.
A Crazy Drunk Guy
What do you do when a drunk repeatedly annoys you by repeatedly calling you
on the phone? Well, you put up a web-page of course!
It seems as if voyeurism is one of the Web's biggest attractions -- and now
even the somewhat conservative Discovery Channel has gotten in on the act --
making it easy for people to join in the kind of festive celebrations that can
only be found in a Las Vegas quickie wedding.

an attempt to get people talking and boost traffic levels? Of course I

pants of a porno spammer who sent junk email to its subscribers. Maybe if more
ISPs decide to get behind such actions the spammers will find their life a

Aardvark Weekly, Have You Got Yours?
Yes, it's still trickling out -- but the Aardvark Weekly subscription list
has grown enormously over the past two weeks which has required a bit of a
change to the back-end here so there's still going to be a few who haven't
received the latest edition. My apologies.
If you want to subscribe, just
drop me a note and I'll put you on the list.
As always, your feedback is welcomed and...
