World Cup Focus
A page dedicated to pulling together all the World Cup links on Maneno as well as elsewhere. A handy reference for those looking in to what’s happening with the Cup once it’s starts up next week.

South Africa URL shortener
At some point, I really need start using a tag whenever the Balkans and Africa have some kind of crossover. It happens rarely, but in the case of this add-it-to-the-pile URL shortener mzan.si (a popular word to call South Africa) it just so happens that they made use of the Slovenian country code domain for the .si portion.
