Well, I checked out and registered for Merlin. It seems to be pretty neat.
I tried Feedster, Topix and Syndic8. I really liked Blogline's Search Tool, though. I am amazed at how many things are under certain headings (tags, etc.), that have NOTHING to do with that category !!!!! How frustrating !!!!!! I am also surprised at what things people put on the internet !!! We have some warped people out there !!!------my opinion.
I checked out the learning links and I want to come back and especially look at the Computing & Technical Resources.
The Virtual World seems a little 'sci-fi' to me !!!! My son plays World WarCraft (?) and he has tried to show me some of it when I go over to see him. Strange !!!! I have enough problems in the 'real' world !!!!!!
I liked the Sandbox because I got a link to http://booklovers.pbwiki.com/mystery.
I did a widget for HCPL to my blog !!!!!!!!
