We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

The World of Snack Chips

So there I was, coming up with an idea for a Ping. I’d write about Munchies, a most unholy (but very tasty and bad-for-you!) combination of mini Sun Chips, Doritos, Cheetos, and Rold Gold Pretzels. I started by doing a Google search… but then…

I found Taquitos.net.

Frankly, I’m surprised neither of us had seen it. It’s a site devoted to snack chips and foods and it’s incredibly complete. Topics range from Pirate’s Booty and Utz Cheese Balls to the worst chips ever (including a cuttlefish-flavored snack!) and the 10 best specialty chips.

The depth and scope of the site is astounding. Almost every chip or snack food you can name is there, and it’s been reviewed. Fantastic stuff, and definitely going in my bookmarks.

Sometimes I wonder if you guys get together and come up with Pings aimed directly at Matt.

Yes, that is a site of great content that you can't find. Maybe one of you professional webmaster types can volunteer to work on their UI a bit? You could do some magic with mySQL and a little bit of Perl...

On further review, the site is databased( I think), but the UI still sucks.

The UI is tough, and very overwhelming, but it's still a good resource. Good point, Chris.

The site's done in PHP/MySQL. Chris, what in particular don't you like about the UI?

Hey Jeremy, thanks for stopping by.

I'm not Chris, but the amount of links for me was overwhelming and, when I first found the site, very gratifying. It's just so much. :)

Greetings!

I was wondering if you'd happen to know of a reliable source of information about sales reps for Humpty Dumpty (which, btw is merging with Brook Farms Distributors in Bedford, NH) or how to get in touch with the home company, location, telephone number email address?????
i'd greatly appreciate any help you can provide. or tell me to get bent....
at least it's good for a giggle!
Thanks in advance.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
