Their “Ask Us Now” feature may be down as of this writing, but check it out: our librarians can be contacted during office hours through AIM, G-chat, Windows Live and the […]
“Bwog.NET?” readers ask themselves. “Isn’t that domain suffix for second-rate websites? All my favorite websites are .com!” While .net is stereotypically associated with lower-quality websites than .com, .org, .edu, and .cx, Bwog analyst David Iscoe set out, in the pursuit of truth and self-preservation, to prove that many .net websites were indeed worthy of your […]
