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
A   A- A   OS/2 Rat's OS/2 Palace (http://www.concentric.net/~Ratfish/). This guy's personal site is better than many commercial ones. Take a look.
A   B+ C- Software Roman's Home Page (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Pines/7885/). Roman Stangl is an OS/2 coder and writer. The popup Geocities ads are horrendous, but plow through them and check out his Program Commander/2 and other efforts.
B   F   C- MPEG Audio PM123 (http://www.teamos2.sci.fi/pm123/). MPEG audio player with plenty of extras --- tone, spectrum analyzer, lots more. Download it, try it.
A+ F   B- OS/2 Tools Henk's Homepage (http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/hkelder/). OS/2 drivers to read FAT32 formatted partitions (yes they work). Workplace shell backup and restore. Association editor.
A- F   B   OS/2 Large OS/2 Customers List (http://rover.wiesbaden.netsurf.de/~meile/los2cl.html). Want an adrenalin shot? See who the driving corporate forces are behind OS/2.
B   F   B+ Software Perez Computing Services (http://www.pcs-soft.com/). Home of the popular Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander and several other utilities.
F   F   A+ Beach Party Bikini.com (http://www.bikini.com/). Subtitle says "The World's Biggest Beach Party!", but who's using their eyes to read?
B+ F   B   Video Video Device Drivers and Information (Norloff's OS/2 BBS.COM) (http://www.os2bbs.com/Download/vdrivers.html). So you're putting together a machine from spare parts, and you need a driver for the video card? Try here.
B+ C   B   MIDI MIDI at Warp Speed with OS/2 (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Horizon/6780/). MIDI Station Sequencer and MIDI Station, plus RTMIDI setup.
B- D   B   Software JMA Software Technologies (http://www.jmast.se/). A browser, a boot utility to swap CONFIG.SYS and .DLL files, and some free source code.





This month's Duck Feather


The Duck is still quacking about his recent find of HotSheet, at http://www.hotsheet.com. This encyclopedic page contains his favorite search engines, a Deja News link, sports and headline news, food, science, music, recreation, genealogy, every Hollywood studio to whom he's submitted his life story, plus 9 "free stuff" sites and on and on and on and on. "Who else has so many links crammed onto one page?" snorted El Quacko as he disparaged all lesser sites and waddled back to his keyboard to try MTV and Onion.
