On the web, content is king. Far more important than glitzy graphics, content makes people come back again and again.
Let's see how WebFoot measures this month's chosen web sites:

Ratings
Info
Content Links Glitz Type Site (url) and Comments
A+ A   C- OS/2 WarpCast News Service (http://www.os2ezine.com/warpcast) or WarpCast News Service (http://www.os2ss.com/warpcast/). To see what you'd be in for with a free subscription to this OS/2-oriented newsmailer, select "News Archives" and peruse.
B   F   C   Rexx REXX SuperSet/2 from SofTouch Systems, Inc. (http://www.softouch.com/rexx.html). Seven DLLs with over 300 functions give your REXX some oomph. 600 page manual; $80 and $250 versions.
B   B- B- Internet OS/2 Internet SIG (http://users.deltanet.com/users/dwatson/isig.html). Go straight to the Links page -- that's where SIG leader Dave Watson has a few good resources listed. Hey, Dave, how about a site map?
F   F   A+ Attire Texas Swimsuit Calendar (http://www.texasswimsuit.com). Don't depend only on Relish to organize your '98. You'll need a wall calendar for sure.
B   C   A- Trade group IEEE Computer Society (http://www.computer.org). The IEEE is a major force in setting standards and publishing technical journals.
C+ D   C   Java Java SuperStore (http://www.javasuperstore.com). PolyEx Software hits a homer. Good prices.
A   D   D   Java Comp.Lang.Java (news:comp.lang.java). Some light reading for a winter's eve.
A   F   B+ Software OS/2 "Must-Have" Utilities (http://www.musthave.com). There's a free OS/2 driver for Windows NT NTFS partitions under "Disk/Utils".
C   F   C   BIOS Unicore Software Inc. (http://www.unicore.com). New hardware, old machine? A BIOS upgrade may be just the thing.
A   C   B- Definitions TechWeb Technology Encyclopedia (http://www.techweb.com/encyclopedia/defineterm.cgi). Searching on "OS/2" returned a nice definition. Now try "Java", "driver", "object-oriented", and all that stuff you've heard of that you didn't understand.





This month's Duck Feather


OS/2 on the web is hot. Nine months ago the HotBot (http://www.hotbot.com) search engine returned 714,258 "OS/2" hits. Today it's 1,945,885 (a 172% increase), and growing. Rerun those old searches that didn't return much -- your chances of a good response are much better today.
