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 OS/2.org (http://en.os2.org/).  Nice site!  Pay attention, webmeisters everywhere, this one's got look and feel.  And check out the IndOS/2 link.
A   A   B+ OS/2 GlassMan (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Vista/7567/software/index.html).  For starters, look at the screenshot for his "Remake of SourceCalc 1.0" (it's on the Software page).  And then there's his "Character Map/2".  All free.  Lots of links, too:  selection #5 from the left sidebar.
A   B- A- Software Sundial Systems (http://www.sundialsystems.com/).  A completely new web site, a brand new OS/2 product ("Rover Pack"), and The Duck is taking a DBExpert class . . .
A   B   B- OS/2 OS/2 Headquarters (http://www.os2hq.com/).  New look and good info, though the OS/2 Mascot finalists don't include the obvious winner.  But all is saved --- Webfoot gets a mention on the "OS/2 Users" page.
A   B- B- CONFIG.SYS Homepage of the OS/2 Config.sys file (http://www.online.de/home/os2/).  Ever used Tyra/2?  It's a great little utility.  Now, Oliver Poggensee has something more --- a dedicated web site with beaucoup info.
B+ B+ B   Sound The Ultimate Sound Page (http://wvnvaxa.wvnet.edu/~hrieke/US.html).  While not quite up-to-date, there's a wealth of information here for those who seek listening nirvana.
A   D- B- Cable Modem Cable Modem OS/2 (http://sprk.com/blackdeath/cablemodem.html).  Step-by-step install, includes installing cable modem on a LAN machine.
B   C+ B- JavaScript JavaScript Resources (http://www.essex1.com/people/timothy/js-resou.htm).  For the HTML crowd.  Since JavaScript sometimes bombs Netscape 2.02 (this particular page seems safe but 2.02 didn't display it properly), you may want to first download 4.04 . . .
A   B- B+ SCSI The SCSI Trade Organization (http://www.scsita.org/).  Got the what's-this-SCSI blues?  Specs, links, connectors and the SCSI Harbor Project.
A+ B- B   SCSI T10 (http://www.symbios.com/t10/).  They're super techies, they're more than SCSI, they're watched over by ANSI, they understand Low Voltage Differential.





This month's Duck Feather


Finally setting up your Internet proxy server, and having a wee bit of trouble with those LAN cards?  Open a command line window, switch to \IBMINST, and run OS2SNIFF.exe.  Then wait a few seconds and see what it says.
