Your Personal Net (, which opened officially last week,
is rilly rilly good. I highly recommend you visit if you haven't

First there was HOMR/RINGO/Firefly, which I thought was inadequate at
making recommendations to me the home user, but a good first stab. Over
in the corner were Web Hound (or whatever it's now called) plus those
