Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

I’m noticing that corkd.com is a cool little service that I like to use. The problem is it seems to be down half of the time I try to access it. Last few times, the request would time out. This time it gets bounced to: http://segpub.com.au/ Which appears to be the host they use at [...]

JotSpot

Saturday, August 12th, 2006

Wow, how come I hadn’t stumbled upon this before. It certainly gives FlySpray, BugZilla, BaseCamp, Blogger, Coppermine, Google Calendar, Google Spreadsheet, Yahoo Groups (and many others) a good run for their money.
