    Google - Personalized Home Page - Sweet!

    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.

    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.
