Is it bad when your list is split into 4 areas and still scrolls?

Whats the addy for that free sms? Ive been in need of one since I switched from AOL about 2 1/2 years ago. And Lycos just isnt up to scratch IMO.

As for my favorites.....
Manfacturers websites for all my hardware in my PC's and laptop. (Makes getting new drivers way simpler )

About 10 forums I frequent, though I dont visit any as much as NTHW (NTHW is even my homepage )

Lots of Pages for games I own aswel as Online browser based games.

Some handy Internet utilities such as speed tests for my BB connection.

Random stuf I couldnt fit into another catagory (BBC test the Nation, Train Times, Cinema times and a PC PSU wattage calculator among lots of other things)

NTL things such as My upload, webspace & Webmail.

Lots of online shops Like Ebuyer, Dabs & Ebay.

Episode Listings for all my favorite TV shows.

And finally an internet Radio Feed for my local favorite radio station.

Re: whats in your favourites???

Well I don't have favorites, but I do have bookmarks, and I've got lots of them!

First of all there's the Search Engines tab with Google, Google UK and Ask Jeeves being the most used.

Then there's the "Groups" folder with all the discussion groups such as Which? Online and nthw.co.uk

Then BDSM resources, Banking and Savings, Auctions and Shopping, Knowledge Resources (online encyclopaedias, dictionaries, Snopes etc), Business (assorted business related links) and a few others such as Games and Misc for everything else that doesn't go anywhere else!

It's much easier to bookmark than having to try to rediscover "that site I found a few weeks back that had that useful stuff on it"!

Re: whats in your favourites???

I have about 10 items in my Favorites root and then about 20 folders with something like 150 links in them - some of those root folders then have sub folders with more links.

Re: whats in your favourites???

Well, after finding this doozy I've started a new favourites folder called 'Nut Cases'. Even my 'Junk Science' folder isn't demented enough to store this one in it.

Re: whats in your favourites???

I reckon that the easiest way to do a serious (as opposed to shifting a few links around) reorganisation of Favorites is to work directly in the Favorites folder in Explorer, rather than trying to use the pathetic 'Organise Favorites' in IE.
