A perfect place for finding a gift for any nerdy need or desire. Need a gift for a friend (or yourself) with specific interests anyone other than them (or you) would label geeky or nerdy? Save yourself the headache of looking elsewhere and start your shopping here. Even with more popular merchandise (like Star Wars and Doctor Who), I've found ThinkGeek to have unique products I couldn't find elsewhere.

I've hated Facebook for years. Because of the sheer volume of users, it made itself indispensable as a place to keep in touch with loved ones and for self-promotion.

It was never pretty, but it served a purpose. It's one of the least user-friendly and worst organized sites in terms of settings, but users only concerned with posting, liking, and sharing updates will disagree. Reports of problems or suggestions receive an automated message that your message may be seen but won't receive a response.

Many significant updates over the years - several of which occurred without notice - have prevented you from seeing what you want to see. There's something disturbing about family and friends not seeing a friend's post about a loved one's death, but they will see the silly meme (and related ads) that same friend posted at the same time.

It's not just important updates from loved ones either. You know those companies and people you liked and followed so you could keep up on them easily and without effort? Well, if they aren't dishing out money on special advertising you won't see the important stuff, and if you don't know there's special news feeds you have to visit or go directly to their page on a regular basis, you'll never see anything from them ever again.

With changes like this, Facebook no longer provides the service it's supposed to. It is no longer a social networking site but a site for ads and keeping you distracted with only certain types of posts so you'll see more ads. If you're a business or self-promoting? It's a place you must pay for your efforts to have effect and what you are paying for may not be what the services and numbers suggest.

Here are the effects of not using Facebook today:
-No impact on business
-More time for anything everyday
-Increased interaction from loved ones by more personal means
-Less headaches
-Increased attention span and awareness
-Only the true addicts of Facebook get confused when you tell them you don't use it

I first came across Proboards several years ago while they were still fairly new. After trying out other free hosts at the time, they were exactly what I needed, easy to understand, customizable, and had a fantastic support community. Over the years, they continue to offer a fantastic free service (and without over-bearing ads like other free hosts) with awesome support.

They are innovative and manage to keep message boards relevant while social networks take center stage. They've grown a lot, but haven't lost touch with their original values and commitments.

Some features, like the Plug-ins, could be a bit more user-friendly, but for a free service, they're worth taking the time to learn. Not to mention their support community has staff and fellow members who are quick to answer questions.

The History of English Podcast

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
