One thing that really annoys me is that I can only access my IE or Netscape
favorites at one computer: if I find an interesting site at work, I cannot
remember the URL when I get home. I solved this problem by creating a weblog
that contains links to all my favorites. A weblog basically lets you create
an entry on an HTML page without having to start your HTML-editor or having
to (manually) FTP the data to your website.

Instead, I can access a shortcut menu in my browser that opens a small
publishing window. Here, I can simply enter the URL and some comments. It
gets uploaded to my website immediately, in a preformatted layout. This way,
I can access my favorites from any computer, and publishing literally takes
seconds. Nice extra: there's no limit to the number of weblogs I can make,
so right now, I'm setting up different ones for different topics. For an
example (in Dutch, but hey, you listmembers send me English examples all the
time *s*):
