Link Goodness

Allrighty, how about a little linkitudinal updatage going on here?

First, for those of you in the Asheville area, I have for you perhaps the best online weather info available. Current NCDC Weather Conditions provides you with current data from atop the Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. There are also links to regional radar maps (loopable) and lots of other cool weather geek info. I have an inside track on this sort of thing these days, which makes me even geekier. I know you are jealous.

And about the Internet Explorer thing, it’s not really a new version of the browser, it’s a service pack. Looks like they are feeling a wee bit threatened by someone.

Lastly, for those of you who need to surf the Internet in style, I give you Pimpzilla the bling-bling Firefox theme.

  1. Hey Will,
    Did you know about this software? It works great with windows. I heard it is a bit more complicated to get it to work properly with other systems. Check it out. http://www.openoffice.org/

  2. Open Office rules. It comes with most distributions of Linux these days. I haven’t used it in a couple of years, but last time I tried it it was pretty nice.
