RE: Speed Surfer? Get a ‘Local’ Homepage

This is a clever idea, I think I’m going to do this on the home PC’s. I’ll add links to email and of course, Amazon. I’m always curious about the status of the wireless bridges that I plugged the Tivo’s into, I can add links to them as well.

Rather than use ‘google’ as my “homepage” I always create my own html file to use as a webpage, and store it on my hard drive.

Advantage are:

  1. It loads damn quick, even loads when you’re not online.
  2. You can customise it easily.

Here’s an example:

This is my gift to you.

My “real” homepage also has links to the banks I use, and so on. I only ommited that stuff because you are a pack of prying thieves.
