    Okay, okay. After dragging my heels on trying yet another “social networking” item , I tried del.ic.ious. Part of me hesitated because of the idiotic use of periods.

    Now that I’ve tried it, I’m hooked. Who needs bookmarks when you have this? I stopped bookmarking sites a long time ago because I couldn’t keep track of them all, but the keywords allow me to tag a link in so many ways I’m actually using the service. And it’s easy to do. No huge learning curve.

    Thanks for the push! I owe you one!

    Charmian: I couldn’t agree more about the value of Delicious, periods or not! I don’t take advantage of the social networking end of the service – I don’t browse other people’s bookmarks, for example. But I love the rest of it. Thanks!
