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+ F   D   Rexx DrDialog (http://service2.boulder.ibm.com/devcon/showcase/cat/drdialog.htm).  Register, then download it (it's free).  This most amazing and high quality tool creates GUI REXX programs.
A   D- A   Networking Setting Up a SOHO Network (http://www.ameissnet.com/OS2Networking/SOHO.html).  OS/2 and Windows together --- this is the Warpstock '98 presentation given by David Ameiss.
A- C   C- Fax PMFax, FaxWorks (http://www.kellergroup.com/).  Still the only way to fax, Keller Group's products are a must-have.  Check the Version 3 features list!
B+ F   B- Graphics Embellish (http://www.dadaware.com/).  Great graphics program.  Free demo.  Duck met the author, very impressed.
B   B+ C   Rexx The Rexx Language Association (RexxLA) (http://www.rexxla.org/).  The 10th International Rexx Symposium is the first week of May in Jacksonville, Florida.  Mike Cowlishaw will speak.
A+ F   C+ Software LEO -- Link Everything Online (http://www.leo.org/pub/comp/os/os2/leo/) or LEO -- Link Everything Online (ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/comp/os/os2/leo/).  Big Leo is really growing from the OS/2 base in Europe.  Crank up your browser, Bubba, it's got stuff you won't find on Hobbes.  Great site map, and you can view a zip's contents before downloading.
A- F   C+ Internet SEVEN twentyfour (http://www.SEVENtwentyfour.com/).  A wide-ranging broken link monitor service for webmasters (see the sample report).
B   C+ D+ Security Secure Shell SSH under OS/2 (http://www.snafu.de/~hmstahl/ssh/sshos2.html).  Do your eyes brighten at the word, "security"?  Click here.
A   C- C   News Changi (http://www.egnite.com/html/changi/changi.html).  It's a news server, it maintains your local newsbase, you'll never miss another post.
A   F   B- Printing Klassic Specialties (http://www.klassicspecialties.com/).  The "Paper, Paper, Paper" man (see http://www.scoug.com/os24u/1998/scoug805.2.dbaker.html) has new exclusive products.
