    Pointless Question of the Week #9

    Well, it went away, but it's come back again!

    The new term brings a new series of pointless questions, designed to take your mind of everything and anything.

    Today's question is not related, but I think it's a good way to know more about each other. The question is:

    What is currently your homepage....and why?

    I've attached a picture of mine. I use iGoogle - and the interesting bits you can see are:
    1) Some interesting facts/fictions (factions?) in the top left.
    2) The EduGeek feed
    3) A quote of the day
    4) A countdown to when I get to be in America with my gf (pictured against her will...I'll deal with any legal issues she may have with that)
    5) A minimised widget that gives me the nice background pic of Oilseed Rape
    6) The moon. I have no interest in astronomy, but I like to know whether I will be able to walk home from the pub safely or not.
    7) Two clocks. I'm not very good at working out time differences.

    OK, your turn.

    Personally - YubNub. It's also Firefox search keyword so I normally just type commands straight into the address bar.

    Everyone else at work has our bespoke Intranet page with links and stuff on it.. soon to be Web2.0-ified

    The reason I use google is because it is quick to load (and the fact that I use it more then any other website).

    Seriously, nothing is more annoying then a slowish loading home page... like the bgfl website (which my schools have... argggh)

    Re: Pointless Question of the Week #9

    At work I have our intranet (it's forced out to everyone by some mean IT manager :-)) - at home I have a blank page.

    I probably use Google most as a starting point so I have the toolbar for that; I don't want stuff loading unless I'm really going to use it (but then I also have an empty desktop with no icons or wallpaper - minimalist is good!)

    Sorry I just didn’t understand why you put "google.co.uk. Not google.com". When you go on google.com in the UK it takes you right to google.co.uk.
