We Surf So You Don't Have To


Addictive Little Online Games: damn you, Kottke!

What’s on Jason’s Hard Drive: I like the idea of using a scanner and source control to provide ready access to old paper documents but I have to wonder what the return on the time invested is like.

Line Rider 2: enhanced!

Save Chairman Meow: e-begging, but at least she’s giving you something in return.

Ajaxload: generate your own spinning beach balls of sorts. {via}

RetailMeNot: from the folks behind BugMeNot, but for online coupon codes. {via}
