我會去點的原因：因為以為是 rss @@
3) well expressed and clarified with the “pr” tag
4) ease of page loading
But this is just my theory. :D
以下為 yahoo.co.jp。基本上，日本的 portal 似乎早已經放棄用紅字來表現，如此一來，螢幕線上的 coherence/integrity 才容易保持。
不相信嗎，繼續看下去… Lycos.co.jp 紅色”up” icon：
應該是目前日本排名第二的 portal；這裡純脆抓 screenshots 下來備考。另外，我們可以利用 archive.org 的 Wayback Machine 去找尋自 1996 年以來全世界各 portal 的演進，不過大概要碰碰運氣。;)
以下為 infoseek.co.jp 的 screenshots，分為兩組四張。Infoseek 首頁讓使用可自選色系，在CSS中切換(如果我沒想錯的話)。
昨天 Schee.info 網域下所有網站掛點的原因，dreamshot 官方公告信如下… —- start —-
Our apologies for the repeated outages today. It turned out our router problems _were_ caused by a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack aimed at a site we hosted (note past tense). It was a pretty massive attack, more than doubling the amount of inbound traffic we normally receive.
As a result, our routers were overwhelmed. Due to the nature of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it, we were not able to immediately trace down the cause of the problems. We have now blocked the target’s IP address and are keeping a close eye on our inbound traffic so that we can act quickly to prevent this from impacting customers any further.
We are also in the process of adding new routers and upgrading our existing routers to provide more capacity so that in the future such attacks will be easier to withstand – so that we are better able to react to similar attacks and take action before wide-scale problems develop. Due to the unprecedented scale of this particular attack, we were caught unprepared and for that we apologize.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at
support (at) dreamhost.com or via the web panel. Due to the large amount of correspondence we have received from customers we are experiencing heavy support loads, but we will try to get back to you as soon as we possibly can.

我從來沒有看過國家級的 ISP 入口網站是如此不可置信的雜亂蕪陳。套句 a-giâu 在《Why not Go Clean》一文中所言：「I suppose a glutted site might well intend to project an image of productivity — “your taxes at work”, so to speak — and perhaps hide the scarcity of useful contents.」。乾淨，簡直，而且資訊層次明晰的設計理念，似乎又輸給了行銷中喧鬧的部門。我個人認為 HiNet 的新網頁實在是相當的難堪。
我發現這一期 edge.org 的 newsletter 特別有趣：
A BOZO OF A BABOON: A TALK WITH ROBERT SAPOLSKY
For the humans who would like to know what it takes to be an alpha man-if
I were 25 and asked that question I would certainly say competitive
prowess is important – balls, translated into the more abstractly
demanding social realm of humans. What’s clear to me now at 45 is, screw
the alpha male stuff. Go for an alternative strategy. Go for the social
affiliation, build relationships with females, don’t waste your time
trying to figure out how to be the most adept socially cagy male-male
competitor. Amazingly enough that’s not what pays off in that system. Go
for the affiliative stuff and bypass the male crap. I could not have said
that when I was 25.
Insightful, isn’t it. 我發現這個看法可以套用到摩托車/四輪車上。喜愛摩托車的男人多像長不大的孩子。有充裕資金來源的會嘗試去改車。改車有很多種，從懸吊，
Using Weblogs in your business environment can increase employee communication and knowledge, save time and resources, and build reputation and confidence.
Weblogs 的使用We’re not talking server logs here; the Weblogs we’re talking about are topical, frequently updated Web pages powered by knowledgeable contributors. Drop the notion of blogs as vanity sites for high school diarists and time-wasting black holes made by wannabe writers. Blogs can be anything. It’s up to you to make them useful. You might pass along a useful Web site or an article to friends and co-workers via e-mail. And your colleagues might do the same. The good part is that’s a lot of distributed knowledge. The bad part is there’s no organization or centralization of the knowledge.
You and your colleagues could be posting that information to a company blog. Then everyone would have a filtered repository that was constantly updated with relevant articles and opinions. It would be archived, searchable and available anywhere you had an Internet connection. It could even be categorized by topic, date and/or author. And it could be formatted for XML syndication, e-mail delivery, PDAs, even cell phones.
I maintain two blogs at my company. Both are valuable to my co-workers, but it goes beyond that. One, which links to business resources on the Web, is proving to be valuable to our customers. The other, which links to information design and visual thinking resources, is considered essential to students and professionals in fields similar to ours.
These blogs are not only knowledge builders, they’re reputation builders. Since 1999, a targeted audience from all over the world has visited my company’s Web site to read the latest postings. With help from some contributors and other blogs, we’ve filtered the best resources on the Web for our employees, our customers and our industry.
One of the biggest complaints in the business world is “too much e-mail.” E-mail is crucial, but individuals don’t sort, save or delete it in the same way. This makes sharing and retrieval of information difficult in large corporate environments. A blog ensures that no messages get deleted or lost.
A blog can keep everyone up to date on projects without clogging in-boxes. It also can provide an archive of mistakes and milestones that could be shared with other teams undertaking similar projects.
You could be using blogs in many ways: as internal and/or external company blogs filled with competitor, industry and/or company news; crisis management, product and sales updates; Web resources; network information; and resources for customers.

測試網址，再度放上來。過年這一陣子對 setting 應該都不會有什麼樣的更動(除非格友發現 security 的問題)。大家有閒，就盡情試試。不知提供 phpbb 論壇空間，有無任何實質貢獻或是先天限制。小弟為 phpbb 新手。
