A Weblog about the Invisible Web and Information Availability on the Web
New Year’s Resolution
This is my first post in 2006. I wish everyone a Happy New Year. My new year’s resolution should be “get a move on and get the job done”. So, I get back to work; I still have got a lot to do. Wish me luck!
