don't recognize the number on your call display, but you'd like
to know if Bill Gates is trying to get ahold of you...

|West Coast people and places
Around British Columbia...
- One of the BC based portal sites... you can get little bits
of news, weather, sports...etc here.
- (aka BCTechnology.com) is a portal site for the tech industry
in BC. Tech news, tech jobs, tech events.
Province - The newspaper. It's a "tabloid" style
paper. 'Nuff said.
The Fraser Valley...
The Chilliwack Progress
- Chilliwack's own hometown newspaper.
Chilliwack weather forecast - Fresh from the Environment Canada weather
office - yes, it's probably calling for rain and wind.
Abbotsford weather forecast - likely this is still more wind and rain!
Agassiz weather forecast - more rain!
Hope weather forecast - additional wind and rain, perhaps a little sleet?
little town of Chilliwack. - It's been growing by leaps and bounds over the last
few years, and if you're like me, you still can't quite figure out where all the traffic
came from that's suddenly created a 'rush hour' here in Chilliwack... here are some figures that
show just how much
traffic there really is on the streets of our once sleepy little town.

The Ad Critic
- OK, nobody will admit to watching television commercials, but
I'll put the link here anyway. This site is an archive of ALL
of the TV ads that are worth watching. If you have Cable or DSL
internet access, be sure to have a look at this site. Some of
this stuff is absolutely hilarious, while others are like 30 second
big screen movies ... but of course, I've never watched any of
them... I've just been told this stuff.
Update: December 8th, 2002.
Sadly, the original Adcritic has been purchased by 'big business'. You'll
now have to register to check out the commercials. What a shame.
Contests - Who doesn't like a chance to win 'stuff'?.
more Contests - Another link, more stuff, more chances.

- Got a Web site? Need some really easy to use tools to change the content
on your site? Maybe you're a designer/developer that's tired of updating
pages for your clients? You've GOT to check these programs. How do I know? I've used
these programs extensively as I formerly worked with them on a daily basis.
Great software, great company, great philosophy of customer service and support!

site claims to have the largest collection of .dll's on the Internet.

- Just in case you've recently discovered that you don't have
a compression (zipping) program on your system yet.
- Need a new home for your site? Check out HostIndex.com, where you can compare various Webhosting
companies. Personally, I recommend Dreamhost.com
based upon personal experiences that I have had with a few of the 'economy' hosts.
