Hello all -
This list is for announcements only, generally posted once a day if
updates have been made to the Cyndi's List web site at:
I may repeat some of the information below a few times this first
week, until the list has a chance to get several subscribers and
settle into a routine. So please be patient with the repetitive
information. I will discontinue posting much of it after a few days.
I have thousands of requests for links backed up in my mailbox
right now. I'm working through 100-200 messages each day. I
promise I will get to everyone as soon as humanly possible. In the
meantime, my priorities are to correct broken links first, followed
by improvements to the list and additions of new links.
OCTOBER 24 & 25, 1997:
Well, I worked my way through several e-mails yesterday (24th), but
not many new links added. Then I found myself falling asleep at
the keyboard last night. I thought I'd save myself the pain of
prying the imbedded keys from my forehead, so I went to bed. I
wasn't able to upload any changes to the site before I hit the hay,
so I saved them for today. It was all probably for the best anyway
since I had taken some NyQuil for this darned cold. I slept really
well! Today, the 25th, was much more productive on the site.
~~Categories that I updated today & yesterday:
Australia & New Zealand, Biographies, Books, Canada-Military, Nova
Scotia, Census Related Sites, Databases, Eastern Europe, France,
Hispanic, How To, Huguenots, Magazines, Native Americans,
Newsgroups & Mailing Lists, Occupations, Odds & Ends, Personal Home
Pages, Professional, Sweden, Societies, Software, Surnames, Terms,
General UK, US Civil War and various US states.
~~Number of new links:86
~~Number of links updated/corrected:8
~~Number of links deleted:20
~~Most memorable site I visited today:
A very well organized site, laid out neatly with spiffy scrolls for
graphics. I like the look! Also has not only Sam's personal
genealogy info, but helpful items for anyone who surfs to her site.
A terrific set of Civil War rosters:
Ohio Infantry, 142nd Regiment
Ohio Infantry, 51st Regiment
Ohio Infantry, 4th Regiment
Ohio Infantry, 66th Regiment
Massachusetts Cavalry, 1st Regiment
1. A new FAQ page to answer many of the repetitive questions and
cut down on incoming e-mail:
2. This mailing list, also in the hope of cutting down on incoming
e-mail by keeping everyone posted on what I'm up to each day.
3. An easier to navigate table of links at the bottom of each
page. These links to are to other pages in my web site that relate
to the day-to-day operations of Cyndi's List.
4. The addition of the NetMind / URL-Minder form at the bottom of
each page. This is a free service that will notify you by e-mail
that changes were made to a web page of your choice.
5. The Scandinavia & The Nordic Countries category was split up
onto 6 individual pages.
each US state, Canadian province, UK and Scandinavian page. This
to jump to another web page within that category without having to
return to the main index.
7. Oct. 25th - I began to add small links to cross-reference some
of the categories on the main sites index. For instance, under the
"Religion & Churches" category, I put in cross-referenced links to
each of the other religion-oriented category pages on my site.
I'll do more cross-referencing there as I come up with more ideas.
