at work, lm wanted to know when daylight saving time started this year...Traditionally I'd Google. But today I did something very different, and weird :S . I quickly typed in a url: yup, a BLOG! It was an instant reaction. I didn't have to think which blog might have it, or what the url is, or (knowing how dyxlesic* i am) how to spell it :D
It was on "The Blog About Nothing"

* Google says it's "dyxlesic". The ironing is delicious!

Lately, I realize I've been referring to blog quite a bit. Hrah and I were discussing mawlids, and instantly I'd remember a blog where I read something or watched a video about it.

And we were talking about the Ghazali Project, and voilà, I knew the blog where I had read an article by a member of the project

That prolly says a lot about how much I spend reading blogs :

Local number portability (LNP)
enables customers to keep the same phone number when changing service providers or carriers. The transferring of landline numbers to other landline numbers has
existed for several years. Now, thanks to wireless number portability (WNP),
which is often also referred to as Local Number Portability, customers will also
be able to keep the same phone number when transferring their landline phone
service to wireless service and vice versa
