Barack Obama, NOT politics as usual

While many other candidates have began to release ads containing personal attacks, Barak Obama has released an ad of hope and inspiration for a better and UNITED future.

Transcript of ad:
"We are in a defining moment in our history. Our nation is at war, the planet is in peril, the dream that so many generations fought for feels as if it's slowly slipping away. And that is why the same old Washington textbook campaigns just won't do. That's why telling the American people what we think they want to hear, instead of telling the American people what they need to hear, just won't do.

"America our moment is now. I don't want to spend the next year or the next four years refighting the same fights that we had in the 1990s. I don't want to pit "Red" America against "Blue" America. I want to be the President of the UNITED States of America."

-- Barack Obama


Forwarding to external lists with My INDY Lists

Many INDY members have been utilizing the My INDY Lists for some time now, mostly for use as wishlists. However, some members were hesitant to use the Lists as they were already comfortable with an existing list tool such as an Amazon.com wishlist or a Remember the Milk To-Do list.

Well, now those members can have their cake and eat it too! By giving a My INDY List an external URL the list will automatically forward to the external list.

So, for example, I could create a list called "Indy's Amazon Wishlist" and enter the URL of my Amazon wishlist. When another INDY member visits my "Indy's Amazon Wishlist", they will automatically be forwarded to my Amazon wishlist on Amazon.com!

(I know one member in particular who is going to love this feature. In fact, I added this feature with him in mind for this specific use!)

While on the subject of external lists, I wanted to take a moment to recommend Remember The Milk to my readers. RTM is a very robust and well designed web-based list tool. I manage ALL my chores using RTM and LK and I share a list which allows us to conveniently access our shopping list anywhere and anytime.
