Icelandic scenery desktop wallpapers (link roundup)

Andri Elfarsson's Flickr gallery is bursting with beautiful photos of Iceland, waiting to be used as desktop wallpapers. The waterfalls are called "Godafoss" (Waterfalls of the Gods). Via.

And a few more links:

1. The NY Times is apparently going to start charging for access to its website. Ann Althouse mirrors my sentiments:

For me, reading on line is tied to blogging. I'm not going to spend my time reading sites that I can't blog, and I'm not going to blog and link to sites that you can't read without paying.
2. 7 Steps To Reach Executive Customer Service At Any Company.

3. Recipe for Spaghetti with Roasted Cauliflower with Bacon Herbed Breadcrumbs.

*Previously: Great photo of a guy diving near a waterfall.

*Buy fun food recipe books at Amazon.


  1. You can charge for a newspaper website, but you have to do it right. Give those you charge access to the latest information, free of ads. But you cannot lock a newspaper website up and expect to survive. You have to allow free access to your content if you want to make any money from ads.

    Good idea:'s big picture. Charge people who want to get those updates within the first week. After a post has been up for a week it's open to everyone who wants to deal with ads.

    Also give people who subscribe to your print edition free access to your site!

    Newspapers really are going to have to learn the hard way, and that is sad.

  2. They can charge if they provide, on a regular basis, valuable content that can't be found anywhere else.

    I strongly doubt they can.
