Friday Fun Link – The Geocities-izer

This web page allows you to make any site look like you designed it in 1998 using GeoCities… (via Reddit)

Two Months to Canadian Federal Election

The Federal Election was called nearly three weeks ago and I haven’t written about it nearly as much as I thought I would. I mean, if you’ve read this blog for more than a couple days, I think my politics are pretty clear.  Beyond that, there are tons of others who are covering every aspect […]

Friday Fun Link – Find Out Which Technologies A Web Site Is Using is a cool site that will allow you to find out what technologies any web site is using.  I thought it would just say “WordPress” for my site but turns out it identifies everything from the server software to the hosting company to various plug-ins.
