I thought I'd take the time to plug some random stuff of interest to me (and maybe you).
If you are a reader of the GDN then you must check out Les Horton's Naked Truth which has come back alive after a four month hiatus. The latest post gives us the details about how and why Les Horton's cat has been taken hostage by terrorists. Bizarre yet entertaining.
If you're having trouble keeping track of all the blogs you visit then check out Bloglines. I've tried out several different desktop and web-based feed aggregators but this one is the most convenient for me.
Are you one of those people that goes through so many web articles each day that you can't recall where you read what? You want to bookmark each article you read, but you go through so many its not possible? Well Furl is a great little tool to solve that problem. You don't need to install any software. You just add one bookmark to your browser toolbar and that's it. Very very useful.
You probably know about this already because I link to it so often, but if not then check out Bahrain Explorer. I've lived in Bahrain all my life but I still don't know the roads as well I'd like to. It has all of the major shops and offices and other sites of interest listed with point-to-point driving instructions if you need them also.
Sepoy over at Chapati Mystery has got an interesting project going. He got his hands on the diary of a subaltern in the British army during its campaign in the Punjab way back in 1848. Sepoy is posting the diary entries as blog entries on the same dates they were written, but 156 years later. Great stuff if you want first-hand history from an average joe of the time. Check it out a subaltern speaks.
And well, this site called Parking Spots is way too cool to describe. I hope we might have some contributors from Bahrain sending in their photos some time soon also.
That's all for now.
