    Wow. BTW, I’m using Snap, which gives me a full image of the webpage that a link is linked to. It’s very useful and very cool.

    I’d love to get on your Christmas list.

    One more try. Is it that you’ve Snap-ified your web links? I thought it was my doing, then I went to Annette’s blog and the hypertext wasn’t showing me Snap images. So it must be something you did, right? If so, then I’ve got to do it on my blog too.
