New fresh look at "My PhoneGnome" site

I didn't see any announcements anywhere, but I signed into the "My PhoneGnome" which is the web interface for the PhoneGnome service, and boy has it been upgraded:

Very nice. The top menu bar appears the same as before, so everything I knew before seems to be there still, but there is a new navigation bar along the left hand column.

The top "tabs" are the same as before: Home, PhoneBook, Voicemail, Find People, SMS, Settings, Features, and Call Analysis.

I'm still getting used to finding my way around the new left-hand column links. The links are divided into five groups: Quick Links, Online Access, Community, Features, and Help.

One really nice new feature of the new site is a "Help / FAQ" page that shows all the available on-line help files in one place.

The "Community" area looks interesting. I'll have to check that out.

Anyway, it's nice to see continued care and feeding of the PhoneGnome service.

PhoneGnome keeps chugging along

PhoneGnome is the little engine that could. It's not getting much press coverage these days - and even I have been pretty quiet on this blog - but it just keeps on working (knock on wood). I've had it installed for several years now and I'm so used to it, I don't know what I'd do without it. I make a fair number of international calls. When I think about how much I've saved between these and domestic long distance calls, it's staggering. The little PhoneGnome box has paid for itself many times over.
