my 100th post
This is my 100th post, and to commemorate I thought I would spruce up the place a little (I’ve added 5 new banners into the rotation) and recap what I have covered so far.
(at least) one cool thing has been wide-ranging in topics discussed. I’ve reviewed:

Finally, in a move I am happiest about, I have introduced guest authors to write about their own cool things. One of the reasons I started my blog was to share what I enjoy and to have my friends share what they like.
To that end, I would really appreciate it if you left a comment suggesting how you would like (at least) one cool thing to evolve over the next 100 posts. What should I concentrate on? What type of information do you find most useful? And don't be shy about adding your favorites too!
