    Not sure how many of you use this, but I just started and love it. Here is a screen shot of my sports tab...

    You can add anything via a link.

    Go to Add Stuff. At the top of this page, to the right of the Search, you'll see a small Add by URL link.

    Click it and add links to any sites you want. :)

    I too searched for the Cyclone items and didn't find any. Then I stumbled on the URL option.

    Re: Google - Personalized Home Page - Sweet!

    I actually have something setup so I can type in "something".cyclonefanatic.com and it takes me to a custom CF-branded Google Start Page like that. I thought about giving everybody the option of setting up their own but haven't done much with it yet.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Now that would be very cool! :)

    I'm also not sure how to create those "stuff" items. Even though a person can use URL's - as illustrated in this thread - not everyone knows they can do that because it's not obvious. Plus, Iowa has a few "stuff" items.

    Jeremy - do you know how to create these?

    I need to think up stuff to write about. There's not a whole lot going on. Plus, I've got finals coming up, so I'm trying to work in a post or two every once in a while to prove I do still exist.

    Re: Google - Personalized Home Page - Sweet!

    I just found that SI.com has some "stuff" items for certain writers.

    Peter King now graces my sports page. :)

    Had to create a separate tab for Sports and Cyclones/Cowboys. I have a works specific tab and an IT tab too.

    Good stuff. :)

    For those that use gadget items that you provide personal information for (login, etc) - you may want to read this (link below)...the creator of the MySpace gadget had some security issues to deal with and ended up taking it off-line. I'm sure not everyone has taken these types of measures.
