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
B+ A   B- OS/2 The Mining Company (http://os2.miningco.com/). This great OS/2 site is one of many run by New York-based web conglomerizer.
B+ A   B   OS/2 Jerry Koret’s Repository for MR/2 ICE (http://www.jkoret.com/). Jerry’s got more here than just MR/2 ICE info and code, but that alone makes it a worthwhile stop.
A+ A   A- PCMCIA Personal Computer Memory Card Interface Association (PCMCIA) (http://www.pc-card.com/). Reading this won’t make you any luckier in trying to make these little computer cards work, but you’ll sure have a better understanding of why they don’t.
A+ F   B   Computing The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) (http://www.acm.org). Big dues and great journals.
A   D   B- Benchmark The OS/2 Warp Benchmark Center featuring Sysbench (http://warped.cswnet.com/sysbench/index.html). Sysbench, an OS/2 benchmarking tool, will rank your system and its parts. Source code included.
C+ A- C+ OS/2 Russ Harvey’s OS/2 Fixes & Downloads (http://www.islandnet.com/~rharvey/os2/fixes.html). A well-organized list of links in the OS/2 orbit.
A   F   B   Programming IBM Application Development Page (http://www.software.ibm.com/ad/). Semi-transparent owner of OS/2 lists all 16 VisualAge products plus other very opaque offerings.
A+ F   D- Software IBM OS/2 Employee-Written Software (ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com/pub/pccbbs/os2_ews). Gems bound forth from the keyboards of the more intrepid big-blue white-shirters. Note that this is an FTP site — type in the entire url address.
B+ B+ B   Programming OS/2 Multimedia Programming (http://www3.sympatico.ca/pinard/os2mmprog.html). You want DIVE? You want MIDI? You want MPEG? Programmer Mathieu Pinard shall help thee.
B   F   C- Books OS/2 Books from Compu Star (http://www.bayon.com/cstar/os/os2.htm). The Duck knows the value of a good book, and keeps the tv off while he evaluates. Discount prices improve the learning curve.
