(bits) by bill keaggy

Every week I used to find a cool weblog (sometimes a local St. Louis blog) or some useful, interesting web site from here or there and write up a brief on it for the Sunday Everyday section Tuesday Here and Now section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (I used to work there as Features Photo Editor). That's about it. Not much action here anymore. More of my stuff can be seen here: keaggy.com.

Zunafish lets you list your old CDs, books, DVDs and the like and trade them for new titles you'd rather have. Sick of listening to your old Byrds CD? Trade it for a Doves disc. Bored with your Mr. Mom DVD? Swap it for Mr. Show. It all happens at www.zunafish.com.

The Popularity Dialer

Want to get out of a boring meeting? Need an excuse to ditch an uncomfortable conversation? Maybe you just want to look important. Use "The Popularity Dialer" and have your phone ring right when you choose. At the time you choose, the service will dial your phone and you will hear a prerecorded message when you answer. The recording is one half of a conversation, allowing you to easily fool those around you. Fake 'em out at www.popularitydialer.com.
