    I do find it very sweet that everyone celebrates the anniversary of my first date with Ben. 🙂

    Well, it looks like I don’t have much to celebrate that day except Amanda’s birthday and Stephanie’s first date with Ben. My own birthday is about a week and a half later. But the Linux Journal awards are sure to be interesting.

    I already have lynx installed, by the way. It’s a good way to show people how screen readers and search-engine spiders “see” the web.

    I’ve never been a fan of “readers’ choice” awards. People just vote for what they know or are familiar with, which will usually be a small minority of the software listed.

    (I’m just bitter after years of reading these awards in magazines, seeing IE6 presented as best of breed rather than being the default browser shipped with the monopoly OS).
