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   A   OS/2 The OS/2 Supersite (http://www.os2ss.com/). It's big, it screams like a tabloid, it's got Loren Bandiera's OS/2 News and Rumors.
A+ F   A   Software OS/2 TUCOWS (http://os2.tucows.com/). "The Ultimate Collection Of Winsock Software". Lordy, lordy, lordy, what a treasure trove. Dave Watson promises to review every single HTML editor listed.
A   A+ A+ HTML Webmonkey (http://www.hotwired.com/webmonkey/). If you're a webmaster who wears beads, hails from San Francisco or takes drugs, this is your site. Contains many developer links for HTML, JavaScript, PERL, more.
F   A   C- Programming Tilly's Programming World (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Lakes/7084). The author discloses the links to his favorite language sites, from C++ and Java to little-known Logo and cult language Perl.
B   C   B   Software ZOC (http://www.emtec.com). ZOC Version 3.07 is now available. "Whazzat?" you say? If you don't know by now, pal, you don't need it.
A- B+ C- Rexx IBM Object Rexx (http://www2.hursley.ibm.com/orexx/). Don't miss the White Paper link at the bottom.
B   D- C   Java OberonJava Programmer's Toolkit (http://www.oberonsoftware.com/Product.html#java). The pros use toolkits (after all, the client ends up paying for them). Here's a nice one.
F   B   A+ Research Image Surfer (http://isurf.yahoo.com). The Duck likes the "Models" category.
A   B   B+ Disk drives T10 (http://www.symbios.com/x3t10). X3T10 ANSI Subcommittee on SCSI, CAM, ESDI, SMD, Floppy, ATA and ATAPI. Oooh, a techie site.
B+ A- A   Software The World Of OS/2 (http://www.os2mistress.com). Lots of neat files on this underused site. Poke around awhile and find something useful.





This month's Duck Feather


The URL search is back!

Lycos (http://www.lycos.com) now allows you to search their URL database for any string.   Go to http://www.lycos.com/search/, then use the Search For Text In URLs section (there's also a Title search and a Web Site search).   Remember that Lycos doesn't like slashes, so use "OS2", not "OS/2".

The Yahoo (http://www.yahoo.com) search engine also allows URL searches.   Precede your Yahoo search string with "u:" -- for example, "u:os2".   But for small searches, Lycos returns many more "hits" than Yahoo.   Lycos has a URL search limit of 1,000 hits.
