What is what

Hi...

New here, but not new to iSilo or using iSilox to transfer to my Handera330 (I said "bye" a long time ago to AvantMore$).

I'd love to see a *brief* explanation of what each channel/site is...some are obvious, but most are not.  If one is not familiar with a site, could be passing on something worthwhile.  I know that's a lot of work, but it could be done gradually.

Cheers,
Gary

I think it would be nice if the text version of the links had hyperlinks to their respective pages.

gvtexas: I've been thinking the same thing.

I tried out the new version of Handstory today, 2.3. I gotta say, I still wasn't all that impressed and bagged it. The one advantage that HS and Avantgo have ever had over Alexander's brilliant iSiloX WCC (as well as apparently Plucker and sitescooper) is the ability for users to dynamically create links based on a short description and to do it over the web.

In light of that, and the fact that while most of the users here have more than 20 active braincells, it totally makes sense to put together a short website like that. Like you said, gradually and over time, and like Overkill suggested, with links so that peeps can check it out before they try it. That would give us all the advantage of making sure that the sites/channels were still active and we could possibly figure out some way to categorize all this randomness.

All that typed, I'm up for it. I think I made some hopeful attempt (or promise of one) before. I think we just need the webspace carved out (ouch, quit nudgin' )


Back to general state of wonder... oooooh shiny!

Hi all,

I could - and in fact already did - write a little perl script that takes the wcc105.ixl apart and outputs only channel name and channel link (clickable). I mentioned it earlier that I had my reasons so far from not making the list public this way. I will, however, think of a solution so that every registered forum member can actually browse such a list. Very soon.

It's bedtime
