The New And Improved
by Heng-Cheong Leong

Welcome to the "new and improved" MyAppleMenu. After months of planning and weekend programming, here's the end-result. What are the changes, you ask?

Well, three web sites are removed. Wintel news has been merged into MyAppleMenu, while Linux news and Internet news are merged into The Tomorrow Weblog.

All the RSS feeds have been upgraded to RSS 2.0. You can get the URLs of all the feeds in this web page. I am also, finally, dropping feeds in ScriptingNews format. (I don't think they will be missed.)

In addition to the upgrade, the RSS feeds will now include all the content of MyAppleMenu — including random musings and rants from yours truly. Of course, some readers may not consider this an improvement. :-)

The HTML design of this web site has also been changed — just something new for me to play with.

You'll also get permanent links to some of the items. If you have no idea what are permanent links, you can safely ignore them. But for those who want to point to my musings and random rants, here's your chance.

As usual, feedback, comments, and complaints are welcomed. Just send them to Thanks, and have a nice day.
