“Tourbus” Picks LangaList

Ever hear of the "Internet Tourbus?" If not, you’re missing something good:

Since 1995, Tourbus riders have been getting the scoop on search engines, spam, viruses, cookies, urban legends, and the most useful sites on the Net. So why surf when you can ride the bus? Join 90,000 others from 130 countries, and hop on the Bus today.  http://www.tourbus.com/

A recent issue (Jan 14 03) added five new entries to their list of "top sites," and I was honored that their number-one addition was this:

If you are a Windows user, I *STRONGLY* recommend that you subscribe to the LangaList — it is short, it is free, and it is a must-read. And even if you aren’t a Windows user, I still recommend that you subscribe. While Fred’s articles about Windows patches, tips, and tricks probably won’t help you much (other than to give you something to chuckle at when you see all the problems we non-Mac users are having with our OS), Fred also writes about topics that are important to EVERYONE who is part of the digital domain. (See http://www.tourbus.com/archives.htm  )

The folks producing Tourbus have been online a long time and have seen a lot of sites, so it means something to get the nod from them. (Thanks, Bob and Patrick!)

But it also means a lot to get the nod from *you,* when you recommend the LangaList to your friends. That’s because— as long-time readers know— this newsletter is a one-person private project of mine: It’s not part of some publishing empire’s stable of publications. There’s no budget, staff or facility to handle outreach and promotions. The newsletter depends on word of mouth to grow.

If you think the LangaList is a worthwhile read, Please use either of the following links to recommend the LangaList to a friend. Your friend just may find a new source of useful information; I just may gain a new subscriber; and you just may win $10,000 for your trouble (full details also available via the links): http://www.langa.com/recommend.htm#1

Either way, thank you for helping to spread the word about the LangaList!
