Library Elf

Today is the anniversary of the first post on this blog.
On 14 March 2006 I wrote about Library Elf -- a free service that reminds you when your library materials are becoming due. It's still going strong, still recommended.

Congratulations on 11 years. Perhaps you need an elf to help out around the blog house. Since then the Ottawa Public Library (and I suspect other public libraries) has instituted an e-mail alert system that works very well for notifications - holds, books due, overdue etc. That being said, I am glad your "first" blog posting is still relevant.

Congrats John.
I am pleased to say as well that there is a Garbage Elf. I registered my address with the City of Ottawa garbage collection service and it tells me 24 hours in advance when collection will happen, and whether it is a black or blue box day. I got sick of looking for what the neighbours were doing and hoping they were right. Cheers, BT

Well done John! It takes great fortitude and dedication to provide 11 years of valuable and relevant blogging!The genealogical community has benefited hugely and a number of government and institutional have been kept on their toes. Keep on informing and hounding and we will continue to enjoy the occasional sprinkle of meteorological spice! Cheers, B
