Thanks for the recommendations Kim I may just end up switching to Linux at this rate :)

I'm currently using Iron, a derivative of Google's Chrome, which is basically more private and secure. I used to use FF for quite some time but have found it a bit of a memory hog.

Anyway, got a few more points added - Still missing the blog section, which can be tommorow's job. By the way, can anyone think of a more relevant description of the Nibbana sermons? I've only read a portion of number 1.

After a fabulously frustrating couple of weeks, I've abandoned my Linux plans. Maybe I'll try again some time in the coming year but I need to re-stock my courage and determination before the next assault!

Some Bhikkhu Bodhi audio resources which I think are worth listing here:

My sincere apologies for taking so long to update this, I've now added a blog section and added most member contributed links to their appropriate spots. Hopefully get another update sorted tonight.

Greetings Blackbird,

Thanks... and I've since updated Google Saffron based on this list now.

And if you want to list Google Saffron... http://www.google.com/cse/home?cx=00545 ... cbjbznmwso" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hi Retro, sure thing. I am wondering if we could sort out a domain name host for Google Saffron? I would be more than happy to contribute to any costs involved, or alternatively, there are free domains such as .co.nr

For those who own an iPhone/iPod Touch. Someone has made the offline version of Access to Insight website available at the iTunes store.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/access-t ... 25338?mt=8

Note: the link opens iTunes.

This is a brilliant app. No need to lump books around with me when I'm at work or travelling.

Hi all,

This is great stuff.

Could anyone recommend me a Theravadan mailing list that I can subscribe to that would "push" a daily snippet of a Buddhism teaching or quote to an e-mail address.

I spend a lot of time in the field and for a change, it would be nice to receive something useful on my blackberry every day instead of the spam I've been getting. Getting dhamma sayings on my phone would also be a great way to keep me reminded when I am on the move.

Thanks!

Greetings Ando,

I think you can get Bhikkhu Samahita's Daily Drops of Dhamma sent as a daily e-mail.

Hi Retro,

Google gave me a bunch of links on Bhikku Samahita's Daily Dhamma Dops but none of the sites seemed to offer a daily e-mail option. Most are forums like this one. Or maybe I missed it somehow. Would you happen to have URL? Thanks a bunch!

Hi friends,

I found the link for the Daily Dhamma E-mail at this site (I presume it is the one operated by Bhikku Samahita), except that it is not an email facility. It is an RSS feed which is updated daily. It is as good as an e-mail feed. To receive the daily dhamma drop click here to get the feed loaded to your RSS reader and set it to refresh daily.

Thanks.
