I’ve been toying with the idea of posting links here every saturday at Gearfire. At first I thought it was lazy, and it wouldn’t be enjoyable to read, so I tried to not do it as often. But I have realized that many blogs do link posts on weekends, and they are quite enjoyable as long as the content is relevant. So I am going to try to record all those cool links that didn’t quite get their own article to present to you at the end of the week, each saturday. Enjoy!
