Ever needed to quickly create a page of directions? How about a list of links for students to visit on your next trip to the media center?
Dinky Page bills themselves as "A free service to create disposable pages on the web." I must say that I can find tons of uses for this service...
Here's my quick example. Get your own at http://dinkypage.com
Be aware that there are some limitations - the Dinky Page FAQ mentions that they do not do image hosting, so, pictures will need to be linked from an image hosting service. However, pages don't ever expire and you don't have to create an account to create your page. It sounds like a really good idea to me...
Found this via another of my favorite blogs, but, I needed to use this today, so, I thought I'd do a quick write up. Thanks Download Squad!

As a North Carolina Educator I am
I had been happily using Firefox 3 for my NCWise needs up until the recent update to Firefox 3.5.2. After the update, Firefox quickly crashed upon launching and it was back to using IE for me...
A quick Google today helped me find the solution, though. Thanks to http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?locale=de&forumId=1&comments_parentId=410610 I found that all I needed to do was copy jvm.dll from my JRE install to the \bin\hotspot\ folder of Jinitiator. Hoorah, I'm back to NCWise in Firefox again.
It actually feels like NCWise runs better and faster in Firefox, but, I can't prove that....
That also got me wondering what other browsers might support Jinitiator.
A quick check tells me that Google Chrome doesn't, and maybe never will. (http://blogs.oracle.com/appstech/2008/09/chroma_for_applications.html) However, I did discover that Opera plays very nicely with Jinitiator, and surprise, surprise, it even works in Linux!!
So, goodbye Internet Explorer. I guess I just won't use the big blue "e" anymore. Now that I've found a way to use my Linux machines.... well, that just opened up a whole new world of possibilities.
