Ahoy, all thee weblubbers who art among them too lazy to click links, arrrr. Matey, Cemetech now supports arguably one of the coolest additions to the new Firefox 2.0: microsummaries. These tiny links act like customized, single-item RSS feeds, showing a line of text customized in near-real-time instead of a static title for bookmarks. The new Cemetech microsummaries display the number of new posts since your last visit if you're offline, or "Cemetech|Online" if you're online at Cemetech. I'm open to any suggestions on improvements or changes. Without further ado, instructions!

1. Go to the Cemetech page you want to bookmark, such as the homepage, //www.cemetech.net
2. Click Bookmarks, then Bookmark this Page.
3. Click the down arrow to the right of "Cemetech | Home" (or whatever the title of the page you're on is) and instead choose "Cemetech | Online". Done!

I'm not yet sure what the default update speed is, but I believe it may be a bit too slow. The script of the serverside is optimized to be extremely low bandwidth, so if there's a way, I may customize it to update more frequently. Remember, feedback!
