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

Ratings
Info
Content Links Glitz Type Site (url) and Comments
B   F   B   OS/2 OS/2 Cartoons by Harry Martin (http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/Harry_Martin_/os2.htm). Irreverent. Unique.
A   A   B+ OS/2 The Wizard Of OS/2 (http://home.ptd.net/~madodel/). Hoo boy, this guy likes to write. A good looking page with lots of links.
B+ F   B+ Programming Wotsit's Format (http://www.wotsit.org/). A good collection of file formats are documented here. Wow! Even has PE and LX .exe formats.
A+ B- A   Games OS/2 Guild (http://www.aros.net/~jnielsen/). He's not done with everything yet, but if Jason's game code is as good as his HTML code, you may never go out for lunch again.
A   A+ A- Software The OS/2 Alternative (http://www.tstonramp.com/~freiheit/os2apps.shtml). Goldmine. Don Eitner has listed just about every current OS/2 app there is, by category.
A   D   C+ Utilities Graham Utilities for OS/2 (http://www.warpspeed.com.au/graham.htm). Arguably the best OS/2 utility package. And where's your copy?
A+ A   A- Internet Unofficial Home Page for OS/2 Netscape Navigator (http://people.netscape.com/law/os2nav/index.html). Well, well, well, so now this site shows up. Inside scoop on email filters, known bugs and more, all as of March 1998.
B   A   B   OS/2 OS/2 Warp On The 'Net (http://www.nfwa.com/os2/). A good index of a variety of all things OS/2.
A+ B+ B   Programming Dennis Bareis, OS/2 (http://www.ozemail.com.au/~dbareis/). The free software and source code alone makes this a knockout site. Then there's the OS/2 bug list. And some obscure links.
B   B- A   OS/2 Judy's Warped World (http://www.gt-online.com/~bri). Java? Got it. Drivers? Got it. HTML? Got it. But a picture of Judy? Nope, don't got it.





This month's Duck Feather


Now that the 33-cent first class stamp has been authorized by the Postal Rates Commission, it's time to reexamine how you pay for how you play.  Let's see, 15 stamps a month is $4.80 oops $4.95.  That's almost 60 quackeroos a year.  Email each of your "business partners" and ask if they take e*cash.
