Most vanity websites have some list of links the creators
think are cool. We're no different. We scoffed at that procedure, then we
realized: maybe folks know of some neat places and useful noncommercial
programs? With that in mind, we encourage everyone to laugh at anyone who has
put a link to Yahoo! on their page (like anyone doesn't know who
they are and how to get there?) and snicker at the adult sites with "I Don't
Accept" links which go to Disney (isn't that a hoot? Disney gets all
this traffic from sex sites!!). If you're one of the guilty, then laugh at
yourself. Immediately. Do it. Say to yourself, "Are they low on traffic?
Can I help them in their hour of need?" Then find your own damn links. Ours
qualifies... link our front page! Okay, same deal with software, namely
browsers. Internet Exploder and Nutscrape are the de facto browsers
for Windows and Mac OS, and chances are you got to the site which has pimps
for those items *with those items*. If you are reading this under a
none-of-the-above product (and we salute you!), either you consciously chose
not to go with either of those browsers or the OS you're using (and we salute
you!) doesn't have a port. Promote some product which doesn't have an
advertising budget in the billions and doesn't try to take over your computer.
The authors will appreciate that.
